Can you tell me about the engine options?
The first engine option for the 2021 Jeep Gladiator is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with engine stop-start technology and mated with a six-speed manual transmission or available eight-speed automatic transmission. Next up we have the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine that also uses engine stop-start technology and has the option for a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. For all Gladiator models, Jeep is now offering full-time four-wheel drive. When you choose the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, you’ll have a towing capacity of up to 7,650 pounds with the Max Towing Package. Selec-Trac two-speed transfer case with full-time four-wheel drive is available on Sport, Overland, and Mojave models and delivers a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. On the Rubicon model, the Rock-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case provides a 4:1 low-range gear ratio. All options make off-road excursions easier for handling, and more enjoyable for the driver and passengers.
What are some safety features of the Gladiator?
Saftey options available for the 2021 Gladiator are extensive because your safety is a top priority for Jeep. Available is Blind Spot Monitoring, which uses sensors to detect other vehicles in your blind spots, The ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System which uses sonar sensors to detect obstructions behind you, and will alert you to potential collisions when backing into a parking spot. To keep you aware of your tire pressure, Gladiator models come with a Tire Pressure Monitoring system that will warn you if/when your tire pressure is below standard recommendation. The available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking works to sense vehicles and other head-on obstructions and will implore the brakes if necessary to keep you from head-on collisions.
What technology is the Gladiator equipped with?
The Gladiator is staying up to date on the latest technology so you can stay on your intended path whether you’re on an off-road adventure, or simply following directions to your next destination. All Gladiators are compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and have a touchscreen so you can access your device as seamlessly as possible while focusing on the road. To stay on top of maintenance, you can get a monthly health report of your Gladiator to ensure everything is in tip-top shape, and you can access that right from your smartphone! Uconnect technology lets you display directions right on the touchscreen in your Gladiator directly from your phone so you never lose track of your intended destination. Don’t worry about forgetting where you parked, because, with the vehicle finder app, you can get directions back to your car from any location!
