New Jeep pickup will be on sale next year
The Gladiator will be powered, at least at the outset, by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with stop/start. That will be connected to an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. A 3.0-liter diesel will come later, but no word on whether it’ll also get the turbo four-cylinder available in the Wrangler.
It will use third-gen Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lok electric front and rear axle lockers, Tru-Lok limited slip differential and be able to ford 30 inches of water. An antiroll bar disconnect will be standard.
The tires will measure 33 inches, the windshield will fold down and it will feature a bunch of door and top combinations.
Towing is expected to land at a very stout 7,650 pounds, and payload will be 1,600 pounds. – autoweek.com
