Jeep Gladiator Leads its Class with Unbeatable Off-Road Capability

1048 × 520

After nearly three decades, a pickup truck has finally returned to the Jeep lineup, and the wait has been well worth it. Newly introduced to the mid-size truck segment, Jeep Gladiator already has competitors on their heels, with best-in-class towing capability and Jeep's legendary off-road heritage. Based on the Wrangler 4x4, Jeep Gladiator blends true truck utility and trail-ready tenacity, for a unique pickup experience unlike any State College has ever seen.

Power and Capability

Under the hood, Jeep Gladiator gets its motivation from a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V-6 power plant that sends power to the Command-Trac® Part-Time 4WD system via a six-speed manual transmission. An eight-speed automatic transmission is optional, and Rubicon models come equipped with an upgraded 4:1 Rock-Trac® Heavy-Duty Part-Time 4WD system.

Earning its Trail Rated badge, Gladiator features standard off-road equipment like skid plates, Dana 44 axles, tow hooks, and ten inches of ground clearance (11 inches on Rubicon models). And, thanks to special water sealing and a high-mounted air intake, it can take on water obstacles up to 30-inches deep.

While all Gladiator models are ready to tackle the trails, Rubicon models come with everything you need for uncompromising capability on your off-road adventures, including:

  • Tru-Lok® electronic locking front and rear differentials
  • Rock-Trac® 4:1 transfer case
  • Segment-Exclusive Front Sway Bar Disconnect
  • Wheel-to-wheel steel rock rails
  • FOX brand aluminum-bodied 2-inch-diameter shocks
  • 33-inch all-terrain tires

But Gladiator isn't all play and no work. It is a pickup after all, with a payload rating of 1,600 pounds and a class-leading max tow rating of 7,650 pounds when properly equipped.

Trims and Feature Highlights

A four-door short-bed pickup with spacious seating for five, Jeep Gladiator is available in four trim levels:
