What Engines Power the 2022 Jeep Gladiator?
The power of the Gladiator is supplied by your choice of two possible engines. The first option comes standard on all trim levels, and is the potent 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. An 8-speed automatic transmission is an available option, but either way this powertrain will bring you 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque! The Gladiator also comes standard with 4-wheel drive across the board for maximum traction. The second available engine is the 3.0-liter diesel V6, which bumps up the torque output to an impressive 442 lb-ft, along with 260 horsepower. This engine mates exclusively with the 6-speed manual transmission, and is available to all trim levels besides the Mojave, which uses the V6 to soar over desert terrain. When properly equipped, the Gladiator has a maximum towing capacity of 7,650 pounds, and can haul up to 1,200 pounds of payload in its five-foot flatbed. Its 4X4 system also comes with a two-speed transfer case with both high and low-range gearing, so you can tackle rocky terrain, while also performing well on flat land!
What are the Features of the 2022 Jeep Gladiator?
When it comes to its appearance, the Gladiator closely resembles the Jeep Wrangler, with the addition of a five-foot truck bed. It has the iconic seven-slot grille, round headlamps, and of course the module roof, doors, and windshield. The Gladiator’s truck bed is designed for maximum utility, with features like spray-in bed liner, high-strength tie-down loops, and even a multi-position tailgate that allows you to load in longer cargo. The Rubicon has some specialized features that enhance its off-road prowess, like red tow hooks, hill-descent control, and a class-exclusive disconnecting front sway bar, so that you can maximize your articulation on rocky terrain. The Mojave is uniquely designed for beaches, deserts, and dunes, with a 1-inch front lift, a reinforced frame, and high-clearance fender flares. It also comes with FOX internal bypass shocks, so that you can stay in control while driving on the sand.
2022 Jeep Gladiator Tech and Safety Features
The Jeep Gladiator pairs its rugged features with plenty of tech that further enhances its utility, while also keeping everyone on-board connected. For example, the Gladiator offers the Uconnect 4C infotainment system, with either a 7-inch or 8.4-inch touchscreen depending on the trim level you choose. The system also allows you to access your favorite music using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On upper trim levels, this system is upgraded to the Uconnect 4C NAV, which includes built-in TomTom navigation. Another available feature is an on-board Wi-Fi hotspot, so that passengers can surf the web on their smartphones, or use their favorite apps quicker and more efficiently. In terms of safety, one notable feature is the available “adventure-proof” windshield, which is made from Corning Gorilla glass, a high-strength material that can stand up to the wear and tear of off-road driving, while reducing the risk of chips or cracks. Other available safety features include blind-spot monitoring, a ParkSense rear back-up camera, and adaptive cruise control.
