The all-new 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave is officially introduced to the public at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show. This ultimate off-roader is looking attractive and stronger than the base one. Moreover, we can expect a great battle in this segment. Pickups that will try to compete with the new Mojave include high-performance models such as Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Ford F-150 Raptor. However, Jeep is still a strong competitor on the market and it takes its place in the top five ranked thanks to the high-performance variant Gladiator Hercules.
Moreover, with the launch of the Mojave model, the manufacturer hopes that it will grab a better place. The new Mojave is a ”Desert Rated” pickup truck, and with that, we mean that there is no obstacle that can stop this model. It`s great at climbing and river fording.
2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave First Look
The upcoming 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave looks more aggressive than the rest of the pickups in the same class. The front dominates thanks to a durable bumper that is also present on the Rubicon version. It`s made of one-piece steel. However, as you can see from the images, the Mojave model will borrow many cues from the Rubicon model.
For example, the same Rubicon’s tow hooks are present and are painted in orange. On the side profile, the Mojave wears stylish 17-inch wheels that come as standard. On top of that, it comes with a silver front skid plate, beefed-up axles, as the big and off-road-ready 33-inch Falken Wildpeak All-Terrain tires. Also, the Mojave model offers 11.6 inches of ground clearance and it comes with FOX 2.5-inch internal-bypass shocks. Moreover, thanks to that, it is ideal for hill climbing and river fording.
Modern and Stylish Interior
The approaching 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave will provide modern styling inside. The standard package offers many novelties. The first impression is positive and this model comes with contrast stitching that is used on the seats, dashboard, steering wheel, and handbrake. Besides that, there will be plenty of customizations.
For example, buyers can go for black or Steel Gray interior color schemes with the option to choose cloth or leather materials. Inside, there is enough space for five passengers in two rows. The comfort up front is guaranteed, and seats are offering large bolsters with orange accents. Also, as the standard equipment, this model comes with the forward-facing off-road camera that provides a clear view of obstacles ahead.
2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Engine
The upcoming 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave will use one of the most reliable powertrains on the market. Like the famous Wrangler, the Mojave will use the same 3.6-liter V6 engine. Thanks to this powertrain, it produces 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Also, it will be available with a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 8-speed automatic gearbox.
The four-wheel-drive system is another standard possibilities. On top of that, the manufacturer will use a locking rear differential system and better suspension than on the regular Gladiator pickup.
Price and Release Date
The latest 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave has been introduced at the Chicago Auto Show. This model will be, for sure, a big success for Jeep. According to some news, the upcoming pickup truck 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave will go on sale at the end of this year as the 2021 model.
However, because the price is still not available, we cannot be sure how this model will handle with other models in the same segment. From some speculation, the new Mojave will start at $40,000.
