Is the 2021 Jeep Gladiator a Truck or a SUV?

Jeep introduces its coolest and most versatile vehicle yet. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator has off-road prowess. It is a battle-tested pickup that can stand the bumps and bruises that uneven terrain brings. Sports gear will fit right in. Water sports and other equipment are easily transported around Clintonville, WI. Family and friends enjoy when the door and roof are removed to allow the wind to penetrate the cabin.

The pickup truck has a traditional Jeep grille with slotted vents. Fog lights are prevalent and located within the black bumper. The parking lights are sleek, and the edges host the turning lights. The headlamps are circular and closely mimic the character of an off-road pickup. The Gladiator has plenty of windows with a short bed out back for hauling equipment for fun.


The 80th Anniversary Edition and Willys trims make their debut in the 2021 Gladiator. The fold-down front window promotes weekend fun.

On higher trims, the Gladiator offers Fox shock absorbers to minimize the impact of bumps, boulders, and tree limbs often found on uneven terrain. Also, the Fox shocks mated with hydraulic jounce bumpers add to the fun, bringing about the friendly bounces experienced while traveling.

Engine and Transmission

The 2021 Gladiator offers two engines. One is the 3.6-L V6 engine that produces 285 horsepower with 260 lb-ft of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission comes standard with the 3.6-L. However, it does offer an 8-speed automatic transmission. When the automatic transmission is paired with the 3.6-L, the Gladiator will get 17 city and 22 highway mpg. Still, when the manual transmission is added, it gets 16 city and 23 highway mpg.

The other engine offered is the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine that nets 260 hp and yields 442 lb-ft of torque. The diesel-powered engine has an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment. The diesel engine is available on most trims. But, when the diesel engine is loaded onto the Sport and Overland trims, the Gladiator will get 22 city and 28 highway mpg. However, when the diesel engine is loaded on the Rubicon, it will net 20 city and 25 highway mpg. Impressive!

Depending upon the trim, the Gladiator can tow up to 7,650 pounds. So, suppose you ever need to tow some water or camping equipment. In that case, the pickup is designed to safely move cargo from around town with ease.

See Inside the New Gladiator

The new Gladiator has a seating capacity of five. The seats offer cloth upholstery as standard. However, leather seats are available. The front and rear seats provide plenty of head and legroom, which will add to the passenger experience for taller adults. The pickup truck can haul up to 1,700 pounds of payload, depending upon the trim.

Driver Safety and Technology

The new Gladiator offers a standard rearview camera. The rearview camera can be loaded with the optional front view camera that is often used for crawling during some of the off-road adventures. Driver's have found solace with optional driving aids: forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control.
