Legendary 4×4 capability and authentic design builds on rich Jeep® brand’s pickup heritage to create the 2022 Jeep Gladiator. Offering clever functionality and versatility, an advanced fuel-efficient powertrain, and open-air freedom, the Gladiator is also loaded with safety features and intuitive technology to make it a compelling bakkie for the South African market.
Here’s the new Jeep Gladiator in a nutshell:
o Iconic keystone-shaped grille, round headlamps and square tail lamps
o Rugged-yet-distinguished design bolsters aerodynamics
o Convenient fold-down windshield for off-road purists
o The only true open-air 4×4 pickup truck with easy-to-use premium soft top and hardtop
o Dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations
Advanced fuel-efficient powertrains
The all-new Jeep Gladiator offers the proven 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine delivering 209kW and 347Nm of torque and features ESS as standard equipment. It is engineered to provide a broad torque band with a focus on low-end torque, an essential trait needed for extreme off-roading.
The Jeep Gladiator benefits from the popular V6 engine’s low-range torque, which is needed when out on the trails or during demanding conditions, such as hauling cargo or towing a trailer.
Eight-speed automatic transmission
The Jeep Gladiator offers an eight-speed automatic transmission, enabling the vehicle to optimise engine output while on the trails or enjoying smooth, efficient power delivery at highway speeds.
A unique set of two overdrive ratios improve open road fuel economy and reduce overall noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels.
Uniquely suited to the requirements of the Gladiator Rubicon model, the eight-speed automatic transmission delivers a 77.2:1 crawl ratio. The towing and 4×4 performance benefits from a 4.7:1 first gear ratio coupled with a 4.1:1 final drive.
Selec-Speed Control is standard with the eight-speed automatic transmission and manages vehicle speed in “4LO” while traversing off-road terrain without requiring throttle or brake input, allowing the driver to focus on steering. Selec-Speed Control is activated using a button on the dashboard and can be adjusted from 1-8km/h simply by using the AutoStick shift control.
