We adulation the asperous attending of the Rubicon.
The Jeep Gladiator auto gets a new agent agent advantage for 2021. It’s the aforementioned 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 you’ll acquisition in the Jeep Wrangler and Ram 1500, blame out 260 application and 442 pound-feet of torque. But with its $6,000 exceptional over the accepted powertrain, is it acceptable abundant to accreditation that added cost?
To acquisition out, we arch for the beach dunes of Glamis, California. Theoretically, at least, the added low-end torque and revised gearing in the eight-speed automated manual should be a benefaction for off-roading, absolution us accumulate drive after defective to change gears. The added account of this agent is ammunition economy, and the Gladiator Rubicon EcoDiesel is rated to acknowledgment 22 afar per gallon combined. (Sport and Overland models can accomplish 24 mpg.) After 500 afar of active and a adamantine day in the dunes, we’re seeing 21.8 mpg. Appealing good.
The Gladiator has an Off-Road Plus ambience that sharpens the burke acknowledgment in four-wheel-drive aerial accessory for quicker bursts of ability if needed. The Gladiator has no agitation advancing dune faces, scrambling up and over hills after issue. It alike admiral out of a small, V-shaped aperture in the dunes that can blot added cartage in like quicksand, the Jeep’s Falken Wildpeak 285/70R17 tires aired bottomward to 17 psi for added anchor in the bendable sand.
With the Gladiator Rubicon’s access bend of 43.4 degrees, we can accumulate the advanced end beeline and not anguish about agronomics into annihilation on the way up or bottomward a dune. The Jeep additionally has 11.1 inches of arena clearance, admitting the Gladiator’s wheelbase, which is best than a Wrangler’s, reduces the breakover bend to 20.3 degrees. Depending on the appearance of the dune, this agency accustomed aloof abundant acceleration to accelerate the Jeep over the crest, but not so abundant that the Gladiator launches into the air.
The Gladiator has no botheration administration aloof about any off-roading scenario, including the rocks and ruts at California’s Hungry Valley amphitheater abreast Gorman. Again, the low-end agent torque makes it accessible to steadily attune the ability while aggressive a abrupt bedrock face, and technologies like Selec Speed, which is about off-road cruise control, beggarly we can accumulate a abiding clip after consistently accepting to assignment the throttle.
The EcoDiesel agent is currently accessible in the Jeep Gladiator, Wrangler and Ram 1500.
Of course, the EcoDiesel agent isn’t aloof abundant for off-roading. The bland torque commitment agency the Gladiator is abundant to drive on pavement, calmly administration the abrupt grades of the Grapevine on California’s I-5 freeway after the connected charge to downshift. (We’ve apprenticed the Gladiator with the gas-fed 3.6-liter V6 actuality and it’s not about as good.) Accumulated with the Gladiator’s continued wheelbase and revised rear suspension, this is arguably the best bureaucracy for those who ability charge to do continued treks on the highway, admitting it’s still not what we’d alarm luxurious. It’s added adequate than a Wrangler, but still actual abundant a Jeep.
Diesel engines are abundant for towing, but due to some agent cooling issues, Jeep absolutely recommends affairs a best of 6,000 pounds with the Gladiator Rubicon EcoDiesel. That’s a abounding 1,000 pounds beneath than a barter able with the 3.6-liter V6. Payload drops a bit, too, from 1,160 pounds in the gas barter to 1,075 in the EcoDiesel.
Engine aside, the Rubicon EcoDiesel is abundantly the aforementioned as any added Jeep Gladiator. The autogenous abstracts are good, but not great, and there are a decidedly ample cardinal of abundance and accessibility amenities, abnormally for a barter so off-road focused. The covering seats action heating and cooling, and niceties like abounding LED lighting, blind-spot ecology and rear cross-traffic active are available, admitting as options.
It’ll booty you anywhere.
The alternative 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment awning is as acceptable actuality as it is in any added Jeep, and includes off-road pages that appearance things like pitch, cycle and your exact GPS coordinates. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a Wi-Fi hotspot are included with the $1,895 infotainment upgrade, too.
The one big bankrupt adjoin the Gladiator EcoDiesel is its price. The agent agent advancement is a abounding $6,000 — $4,000 for the agent itself and again $2,000 for the binding eight-speed automated transmission. That brings the $45,370 starting amount (including $1,495 for destination) of a Gladiator Rubicon up to $51,370. Load it up with options and you can about hit $70,000. The barter apparent actuality stickers for $64,495.
