2021 Jeep Gladiator Interior and Exterior Features

The Jeep Gladiator takes the iconic front end and open-air cabin of the Wrangler and puts a five-foot truck bed behind it! The Gladiator comes out of the factory with up to 11 inches of ground clearance with a bulldog-like wide stance. The front end holds the same round headlights surrounding a seven-slot grille, just like the Wrangler. Also similar to the Wrangler, the Gladiator has a removable soft top and doors as well as a fold-down windshield for open-air adventures. The Gladiator's interior is also very similar to the Wrangler. With a flat dashboard, round vents and gauges, drain plugs for easy wash-out, a 5-inch, 7-inch, or 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, and available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Available options include a removable Bluetooth speaker, all-weather floormats, dual-zone climate control, lockable storage, and much more.

How Capable is the 2021 Jeep Gladiator?

Great question! The short answer is extremely capable! That's why every Gladiator trim bears the Trail Rated badge. The Gladiator's abundance of capability is mostly thanks to Jeep's legendary four-wheel-drive systems. Part-time four-wheel drive is standard on the Gladiator. Higher trim levels come with full-time four-wheel drive and full-time four-wheel drive with a low crawl ratio. Other features that help the Gladiator's capability is the Rubicon's Rock-Trac 4x4 system with an 84:1 crawl ratio to send torque to all four wheels to easily crawl over rocks, logs, and steep inclines. An available electronic disconnecting sway bar provides up to a 30% increase in steering articulation for more precision. Helping maintain momentum in all terrains is the Tru-Lok locking front and rear differentials. All this and so much more makes the Gladiator the most off-road capable pickup on the market!
