Powertrain Options for the Jeep Gladiator
If you’re looking to harness the power of the Gladiator, you’re in luck! There is not one but two options available in terms of which powertrain your Gladiator can utilize, and each one will provide your Gladiator with particular strengths. The standard setup features a 3.6-liter V6 engine, which kicks out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine also pairs with either an eight-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. If you’re looking for a beefier option, you can go for the turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6! With this engine, the Gladiator can produce about 260 horsepower and an impressive 442 lb-ft of torque. This engine is an available option on all Gladiator models besides the Mojave, which has specialized features for navigating sandy environments. The diesel engine also pairs exclusively with the eight-speed automatic transmission. No matter which Gladiator you choose, each one will come with standard 4-wheel drive. If you go for the Rubicon, you’ll find a Rock-Track part-time transfer case with an outstanding 84:1 crawl ratio. Meanwhile, the Mojave features a locking rear differential, and front hydraulic jounce bumpers for added stability.
What are the 2022 Jeep Gladiator’s Design Features?
The Jeep Gladiator has a sporty and bold appearance, with a striking resemblance to the beloved Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler and the Gladiator feature the same front-end design, with round headlamps, and the iconic seven-slot grille. The Gladiator also offers Jeep’s famous removable roof and doors, with options like half-doors and the available Sunrider top that allows you to have the protection of the hardtop, with the option to fold back the top section to let in the open air. All models of the Gladiator also feature a five-foot flatbed with available features like high-strength tie-down loops, and the Trail Rail system to help you secure your gear, and keep it organized. Inside, the Gladiator seats up to five passengers, with a 60/40 folding rear-seat bench. The front passenger’s seat also folds down, so you can configure your Gladiator’s interior to fit whatever cargo you need to carry with you. Other available features include dual-zone automatic temperature control, side steps, spray-in bedliner, and leather-trimmed seats.
What are the Jeep Gladiator’s Tech Features?
No modern vehicle is complete without the tech features to keep you connected and entertained on your journey! Despite its rugged exterior, you’ll find that the 2022 Jeep Gladiator has a lot to offer in terms of available technology. First off, the Gladiator features a Uconnect 4 infotainment system with either a 7-inch or 8-inch touchscreen. The system also allows you to pair your smartphone with either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, so that you can access all of your favorite music. Speaking of music, another unique feature of the Jeep Gladiator is its available Bluetooth speaker. This is a portable speaker that plugs into your Gladiator to charge while you drive, and can then be removed so that you can bring the speaker with you, whenever you reach your destination! This is a great option for a beach party, camping trip, or outdoor job site when you want to keep the music going even while you’re away from your vehicle. Other tech features of the Jeep Gladiator include the available Wi-Fi hotspot with connectivity for up to 10 devices, and Amazon Alexa hands-free voice recognition capabilities.
