2022 Jeep Gladiator: A Pair of Engine Options
Your choice of two V6 engines are available in the 2022 Jeep Gladiator. The key difference between the pair is one requires diesel fuel for those truck-lovers who prefer the low-end grunt these types of engines deliver.
The diesel is a 3.0L generating 442 lb-ft of torque to go along with 260 horsepower. Fuel economy is a respectable EPA-estimated 22 city MPG/28 highway MPG while the towing capacity is a sturdy 6,500 pounds.
The alternative is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 bringing 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque to the table. Fuel economy drops compared to the diesel as it reaches an EPA-estimated 17 city MPG/22 highway MPG, yet towing capacity is bumped noticeably to a stout 7,650 pounds.
2022 Jeep Gladiator: Go Where You Please
The list of features Jeep was able to develop and implement into the 2022 Jeep Gladiator gives the truck ultra-impressive all-terrain capability. It’s the type of truck you can load your family into and head off to your favorite camping spot with confidence.
Thanks to a high air intake plus special water sealings, the truck can ford 31.5 inches of water. If you go for the Gladiator Rubicon trim, the ground clearance comes in at a stellar 11.1 inches. Tru-Lok® electronic locking differentials are located in the front and rear of the truck, each of which helps you maintain your pace while navigating tight trails.
A sway bar disconnect, which is exclusive to the Gladiator in this segment of trucks, increases front-wheel articulation by 30%. Also available are FOX aluminum-bodied 2-inch diameter shocks which do a splendid job of balancing the on-road comfort you want during your commute with the off-roading confidence you need on the trail.
Another trait the Rubicon boasts is a Rock-Trac® 4X4 system offering up a 4:1 low range and an 84:1 crawl ratio. The list of off-roading traits continues from there with an Off-Road+ button in the cabin to optimize performance to your terrain, heavy-duty forged front and rear tow hooks, and heavy-duty front and rear solid axles.
