While all Jeep® SUVs are ready for pretty much anything, you can’t forget that Jeep also makes a one-of-a-kind pickup truck that’s one of the best in the business. The 2023 Jeep Gladiator is perfect for adventures for several reasons — here are just a few:
Where are you planning to go? If there will be mountainous terrain, the Jeep Gladiator will have no problem handling it. It comes with a base 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. For a bit more brawn, you can also opt for the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 that produces 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. With either engine, a six-speed manual transmission is standard and an eight-speed automatic is available. Four-wheel drive is standard to ensure that you’re maximizing your adventure capabilities.
Excellent Off-Road Capability
Will your travels take you off paved roads? Your Jeep Gladiator will stay as surefooted as a mountain goat. In addition to 10 inches of ground clearance, it comes with solid front and rear axles, skid plates, and high- and low-range gearing.
Behold the Rubicon
If you want to take your off-roading to a whole other level, the Rubicon trim is for you. It comes loaded with many off-road goodies, including:
- Locking front and rear differentials
- Electronic sway bar disconnect
- Heavy-duty shock absorbers
- Lower gearing
- Rock rails
- 17-inch wheels
- 33-inch all-terrain tires
Fantastic Towing and Hauling Ability
What big items will you need to bring with you on your trip? A camper, boat, or other recreation equipment? You’ll be glad to know that the Jeep Gladiator can tow up to 7,700 pounds when it’s properly equipped. It also has a five-foot bed that has a maximum payload of 1,710 pounds.
