The redesigned 2021 Jeep Gladiator will arrive next year and it will bring many improvements. New-generation will also bring more features and even diesel powertrain will be available this time. This pickup is very attractive and most of the cues will borrow from the Wrangler SUV.
Besides diesel engine, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator offers a powertrain that is also under the Wrangler model. This engine consists of 3.6-liter V6 and is able to produce 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to this powertrain, the Gladiator pickup truck is able to maximum tow around 7,700-pounds.
2021 Jeep Gladiator Design, Dimensions
The forthcoming 2021 Jeep Gladiator will get some exterior refreshments. However, this model will continue to ride on 137-inch long wheelbase. We must add that Gladiator shares plenty of stuff with Wrangler SUV as removable roof panels and a fold-down windshield.
However, Gladiator sits on a 20-inches longer wheelbase and provides a more spacious cabin thanks to that. Also, the Rubicon version will be available and comes with higher ground clearance. Thanks to that this pickup is capable of fording water up to 30 inches deep. The Gladiator Rubicon is also offered with a more aggressive approach than the base model. Bigger tires and a new front-view camera are the main reason for the best off-roading experience.
The cabin of 2021 Jeep Gladiator according to some gossip will introduce minor tech updates. Like the new-generation of Wrangler SUV, the Gladiator will offer a spacious cabin with more quality materials and techs. Also, customers can expect better comfort. However, at this moment there are no available cabin images. Furthermore, for sure we know that Gladiator will come with two rows of seats and it will offer room for five passengers.
High-tech amenities will include a 5-inch display on the standard model or 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment center touchscreen on higher trims. The upcoming model comes with folding rear bench seat features lockable storage, leather upholstery and more. Gladiator will arrive with adaptive cruise control, emergency braking and blind-spot warning.
