    A silver 2021 Jeep Gladiator is angled left.

    When Jeep premiered the Gladiator pickup truck, it took the industry by storm, becoming one of the year’s most popular models. While the original Gladiator was met with high praise from Jeep fans, Jeep didn't stop with the original build. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator is living up to the famous Jeep standard of adventure and performance with an optional diesel powertrain in addition to the standard gas engine on the Gladiator. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator represents a great leap forward for a pickup truck that is already considered an industry champion.

    In combining the off-road capabilities of a Jeep SUV with the capabilities of a pickup truck, Jeep has created a vehicle in the 2021 Gladiator that is really in a category by itself. While there are many other SUVs that are designed to maximize the off-road experience, there are none that can also provide the payload capacity and configurability of the Gladiator. Similarly, many automakers offer pickup trucks with off-road systems, but none that can handle the most rugged terrain like a Gladiator. If you want the best of both worlds without compromise, you should consider a 2021 Jeep Gladiator.

  • Performance

    The 2021 Jeep Gladiator has two engine options. The standard engine is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that produces up to 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The opther engine option, a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine, produces 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. Both engines feature engine stop-start (ESS). This will turn the engine off when you come to a full stop and then automatically restart the engine as soon as you take your foot off the brake. In this way, ESS will work to reduce both fuel usage and engine emissions, improving the overall fuel economy of both powertrains.


    There are two transmission options on the Jeep Gladiator. If you choose the standard gas engine on your Gladiator, it will come paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. If you are uncomfortable handling a stick, then you can opt for a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. The additional gear speeds will help you to approximate the control provided by the manual transmission without the hassle of a stick and clutch.

    The EcoDiesel engine comes equipped with a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. This helps to boost the torque produced by the diesel powertrain. It also has been specially calibrated to optimize lower RPM shifting.


    The Jeep Gladiator also gets a pretty good amount of towing and payload capacity. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator with a standard gas engine can tow up to 7,650 pounds, while one with an optional EcoDiesel has a slightly lower maximum towing capability of 6,500 pounds. This is due to the increased weight of the Gladiator caused by the diesel engine. You will also be able to carry a maximum payload capacity of 1,700 pounds.


    When it comes to off-roading, there are no other vehicles, quite like a Jeep. The 2021 Gladiator is no different. This truck was built to handle the rigors of trail riding. That is because every 2021 Jeep Gladiator is four-wheel drive. In addition, the Sport, Sport S, and Overland trims are equipped with a Command-Trac part-time 2-speed transfer case to improve off-road performance. The higher trims each feature a full-time Selec-Trac transfer that will automatically engage the four-wheel drivetrain based on driving conditions.

    For the ultimate off-road experience, you can choose between the Mojave and Rubicon trims. The Mojave comes equipped with FOX 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks with reservoirs and FOX front hydraulic jounce bumpers. These help make the Gladiator Mojave the first Jeep that is Desert Rated to handle the harsh conditions and sand dunes. The Gladiator Rubicon has a Rock-Trac 2-speed transfer case, locking front and rear differentials, off-road winch-capable bumpers, and a disconnecting front sway-bar to maximize the off-road capabilities of this truck. Some trucks look the part, but the 2021 Jeep Gladiator is a true off-road warrior.

  • Trims

    One thing Jeep does well is offer its driver options when it comes to body, trims, and price, and the 2021 Jeep Gladiator is no exception. The starting MSRP for a 2021 Gladiator Sport (the base trim) is $33,545. This trim features a durable steel payload bed with a three-position tailgate. The base trim is followed by five other trim levels.

    The Gladiator Sport S adds 17-inch aluminum wheels for an MSRP of $38,080. The Gladiator Overland has an MSRP of $40,640 and a premium exterior with side steps, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and leather-trimmed seats and interior. The Gladiator Mojave features FOX 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks and front hydraulic jounce bumpers, a locking rear differential, 33-inch tires, leather-trimmed seats with side bolsters, orange accent stitching, and a competition-inspired steering wheel. The Gladiator Rubicon includes locking and front and rear differentials with an electronic disconnecting front sway bar, and 33-inch tires with 11.1-inches of ground clearance. Both the Gladiator Mojave and Rubicon have an MSRP of $44,120.

    Finally, the top trim level is the High Altitude with an MSRP of $51,745. This model features 20-inch gloss black wheels and quilted Nappa leather-trimmed seats with side bolsters. All of the Gladiator trims come with removable doors and a removable top for the ultimate off-road experience at any trim level.

    Special Edition Gladiators

    Jeep also offers three special editions for the 2021 Gladiator. The Willys Sport has unique badging and side running boards with an MSRP of $35,490. The Willys trim has an MSRP of $39,240 and comes equipped with 17-inch black wheels fitted with 32-inch Mud-Terrain tires, a Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential, rock rails, and special decals.

    Cargo space

    The 2021 Jeep Gladiator has a generous payload bed that can fit up to 35 cubic feet of cargo. What is more, the Gladiator can carry up to 1,700 pounds of payload, the highest amount for any four-wheel drive truck in its vehicle class. So, you can carry anything that you may need for your off-road adventures.

    Passenger Cab

    When folks think about the passenger cabs of most pickup trucks, a cramped and uncomfortable seating arrangement immediately comes to mind. This is especially so if you are thinking about the rear row of seats. Fortunately, this does not even come close to applying to the 2021 Jeep Gladiator. Every Gladiator comes with a cab that is best described as what other automakers call a crew cab: two full rows of seats with four full-size doors. There are none of the tiny pocket doors featured on the pickup trucks of many other manufacturers that can be difficult to operate and hard to squeeze through.

    The passenger compartment of the Gladiator is a full 103 cubic feet. This is plenty of room for all 5 passengers to stretch out and feel comfortable, even in the rear row of seats. This can be seen by the fact that both rows have the same 42.8 inches of headroom and 55.7 inches of shoulder room. The amount of legroom is also exceptional, with 41.2 inches in the front row and 38.3 inches in the back. Interestingly, the unique design of the Gladiator provides more hip room for rear row passengers, 55.9 inches, as compared to the 53.9 inches in the front row of seats.

    Infotainment system

    The 2021 Jeep Gladiator comes equipped with the Uconnect 4 system featured on other Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. This is one of the most advanced infotainment systems on the market, combining key systems and entertainment features on a user-friendly color touchscreen. This includes Bluetooth connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, so you can access your favorite apps and use your smartphone while driving your Gladiator.

    Your Infotainment Screen

    The Sport trim has a 5-inch color touchscreen. However, the other models feature one that is larger. The Sport S, Overland, Mojave, Rubicon, Willys Sport, and Willys trims and editions have a 7-inch color touchscreen on their Uconnect 4 system, which also has a pinch-and-zoom feature to improve functionality. The ultimate system is on the High Altitude trim and 80th Anniversary special editions. This is a Uconnect 4C NAV with an 8.4-inch color touchscreen. Not only will the built-in navigation system make it easier to find your next destination, but the system also has a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot that will help keep you and your passengers connected no matter where you may go.
