  • Overview

    There's a growing trend in the automotive industry to take old models and reintroduce them with a modern twist. We see this in the return of legends like the Ford Bronco, popular sellers like the Chevy Blazer, and behemoths like the GMC Hummer EV. Jeep joined the trend in 2020 with the reintroduction of the Gladiator. Today, the 2022 Jeep Gladiator proves that legends never die; they only get better with age.

    The 2022 Gladiator is the crossroads of adventure and capability, making it one of the most versatile models in the segment. This isn't a new accomplishment for the Gladiator, but the foundation on which the truck was built. Making its original debut in the early 1960s, the truck was built on the Wagoneer's platform and featured the same front-end and 140-horsepower engine. Over the next two decades, the Gladiator evolved to match Jeep's own evolution as the leader in off-road capability.

    While the Gladiator was discontinued in the late 1980s, Jeep revived the model in 2020 and set the stage for the truck's future in America. The 2022 Gladiator is poised to be the most off-road capable Jeep truck ever built. The question for potential buyers is whether or not the Gladiator lives up to its reputation. Fortunately, that's an easy question to answer.

    The Gladiator continues Jeep's rich heritage of rugged utility, authenticity, and open-air freedom that distinguishes the truck from the rest of the segment. Its award-winning powertrain lineup gives life to this truck while a host of cutting-edge connectivity, safety, and driver-assist features usher the Gladiator into a new era of innovation. This is the truck of the future–a truck that can satisfy the demands of your workweek and your sense of adventure on the weekend.

    Gas and Diesel Options

    When adventure calls, the 2022 Gladiator is more than capable of answering thanks to its exceptional multi-engine lineup. Jeep knows firsthand that drivers have unique needs when it comes to power and performance. While some drivers prioritize efficiency, others need a workhorse capable of towing heavy loads. The 2022 Gladiator gives you the best of both worlds and proves that power, efficiency, and capability aren't mutually exclusive.

    The Gladiator comes standard with the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that's mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or an available 8-speed automatic transmission. The Pentastar is no stranger to the Jeep lineup and features engine start-stop (ESS) technology that optimizes power and efficiency by seamlessly powering the engine off and stopping fuel consumption when the Gladiator is idling or stopped. Once you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator, the Pentastar comes to life and delivers up to 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque with an average fuel economy of 17 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway.

    What's a truck lineup without a diesel option? One that's certainly incomplete. Jeep gives diesel-lovers an exceptional choice with the Gladiator's available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine. Mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the EcoDiesel delivers a best-in-class torque rating of 442 lb-ft. This increase in power doesn't come at the cost of efficiency, with the Gladiator averaging 22 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway with the diesel under the hood. Unlike most diesels, however, the EcoDiesel isn't responsible for the Gladiator's best towing capacity; while the EcoDiesel can pull up to 6,500 pounds, the Pentastar can tow up to 7,650 pounds. Either way, these tow figures only add to the Gladiator's impressive versatility.

    Trail Rated

    The 2022 Gladiator earned Jeep's legendary Trail Rated badge, becoming the first Trail Rated truck to ever take the road. The 2022 Gladiator Mojave earned a badge of its own, the first-ever Desert Rated badge that proves its desert prowess. Earning either badge says a lot about the Gladiator's capability, which Jeep measures by factors like traction, water fording, desert prowess, ride control and stability, maneuverability, articulation, and ground clearance. The Gladiator excelled across the board, proving its capability to ford up to 31.5 inches of water, navigate the most technical terrain, and confidently clear obstacles with its 11.1 inches of ground clearance.

    The Gladiator Rubicon

    There's one Gladiator that leads the fleet in off-road capability, and that's the Rubicon. Designed to master any terrain at hand, the Rubicon is equipped with a host of off-road components that make it an ideal trail runner and a capable workhorse both on and off the pavement. You won't find any other truck in the segment that offers this level of versatility, and that's exactly as Jeep intended.

    The Rubicon's segment-exclusive sway bar disconnect improves the articulation of the front wheels to make navigating technical terrain easier than ever. On top of the 30 percent increase in articulation, the Rubicon's Tru-Lock Electronic Locking Differentials deliver even more confidence when you're behind the wheel by actively maintaining the truck's traction and momentum. They also make it possible to satisfy your need for speed on the trail when you lock the rear axle in 4HI Mode and confidently watch the Rubicon's speed climb.

    Three 4x4 Options

    Jeep is renowned for developing remarkable four-wheel-drive systems that meet a variety of needs. The Gladiator comes standard with Jeep's traditional Command-Trac part-time 4x4 system, complete with a two-speed transfer case. However, you can also choose the intuitive "set it and forget it" Selec-Trac 4x4 system that constantly delivers power to the front and rear wheels. Finally, there is the Rubicon's Rock-Trac system. Fitted with a 73:1 crawl ratio that can generate immense torque, the Rock-Trac is ideal for extreme adventures and gives you the control you need on any terrain.

    Stay Connected, Informed, and Focused

    Just because the Gladiator is a rugged adventurer and capable workhorse doesn't mean it skimps on innovation. Whether you're blazing a new trail or navigating your daily commute, Jeep gives you all the tools you need at your fingertips to stay connected, informed, and focused on the road ahead. That connectivity starts with the Uconnect 4 infotainment system that comes standard on a 7-inch screen on the Sport and Willys Sport. Every other Gladiator in the lineup is equipped with the larger, 8.4-inch display and the Uconnect 4C system.

    The Gladiator's Uconnect system is a hub of connectivity and gives you access to a host of in-vehicle apps like navigation as well as your smartphone via tools like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Downloading the Uconnect Services app on your smartphone gives you access to the Gladiator in the palm of your hand, allowing you to remotely start the engine, locate the vehicle, and more. If you're looking for greater convenience, add the Jeep Skill for Amazon Alexa, and you'll be able to start the Gladiator, check its fuel level, and send directions with simple voice commands.

    A Safe Workhorse

    With the Uconnect system keeping you connected to your life outside the Gladiator, the truck's extensive suite of safety and driver-assist tools keep you safe when you're behind the wheel. The Gladiator offers over 80 available safety and security features that actively extend your visibility, optimize your focus, and minimize the potential for collision. These tools include Blind Spot Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Rear Cross Path Detection, and driver-assist tools like Adaptive Cruise Control.

    Designed as a workhorse, Jeep equips the Gladiator with a suite of parking and towing tools that make your job easier and your time a lot less stressful in the driver's seat. The ParkSense Rear Park Assist tool features sonar sensors to help you navigate any area in reverse and works in conjunction with the ParkView Rear Back Up Camera. Towing like a pro is easy with the Gladiator's Trailer Sway Control System that applies brake pressure to stabilize the truck when it senses the trailer is swaying.
