Well, our 2022 Jeep Gladiator review is here to help you make that call.
A quick rundown of the performance, the capability, and the off-roading prowess of this truck will set you up perfectly for a test drive at our Harr Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) dealership!
2 Powertrains for the 2022 Jeep Gladiator
There are two motors you can choose between in the 2022 iteration of the Jeep Gladiator. Both motors have some overlapping features yet are different enough so you can customize the performance of your truck.
The truck comes standard with a 3.6L V6 that offers the following performance dynamics:
- 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque
- EPA-estimated 17 city/22 highway MPG
- Maximum towing capacity of 7,650 pounds
A lot of truck drivers prefer a diesel motor to the typical setup. Jeep understands this and offers a heavy-duty 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. An 8-speed automatic transmission and 3.73:1 axle ratio allows this powertrain to generate:
- 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque
- EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG
- Maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds
Abundance of Off-Roading Technology
Jeep models have gone places in the world few, if any, other vehicles have ever traveled. The 2022 Jeep Gladiator continues the rich tradition of Jeep exploration by offering an abundance of off-roading technologies.
Here are just a few features your truck can be equipped with:
- Tru-Lok® Electronic Locking Differentials
- Sway Bar Disconnect
- Rock-Trac® transfer case
- Steel rock rails
- FOX shocks
These features work together to create a more comfortable and competent off-roading experience. For example, the Electronic Locking Differentials help maintain traction and momentum in tight areas, the Sway Bar Disconnect offers a 30% increase in front-wheel articulation, and the FOX shocks are aluminum bodied with a 2-inch diameter to increase comfort and control.
What else can this Jeep truck come with? To put it bluntly, a lot. Customizing the truck with gear and features is up to you.
If you’re trying to squeeze every ounce of capability out of it, you can continue loading it up with features like the heavy-duty forged front and rear tow hooks. There’s also the Off-Road+ button, which you’ll want to become familiar with when traveling over various types of terrain. From altering the transmission shift points to optimizing throttle output, this clever little button preps your truck for high-speed sand exploration or low-speed rock crawling.
2022 Jeep Gladiator Is as Rugged as You’d Expect
The Jeep Gladiator looks tough and behaves the same way. You can go exploring Worcester, Auburn, or Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, at your own discretion thanks to this model’s supreme off-roading capability. Plus, it offers the towing prowess truck lovers require. So, ready for a test drive?
