Everything you love about the Wrangler, but with the added functionality of a pickup. That’s ultimately what sums up the Jeep Gladiator, the first-of-its-kind open-air pickup that gives you the ability to tackle the roads and everything that lies beyond them, while giving you endless capabilities and an extra scoop of practicality. And it features a unique, eye-catching design that really sets it apart from the rest.
There is a lot to love about the 2023 Jeep Gladiator, and it’s no surprise that this off-road powerhouse is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after Jeep models in the Gainesville area. Check out our online inventory to see all the Gladiator models that we have in stock, or keep reading to learn more.
Although it’s not positioned as a competitor with the more traditional pickup trucks, the Gladiator meets many of the same qualifications. That includes a duo of engine options that can be powered by either gas or diesel. The naturally-aspirated engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that manages to shell out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. If you prefer a bit more in terms of output, it’s the 3.0-liter V6 that is capable of 260 hp, and a powerful 442 lb-ft of torque, which is good enough for a best-in-class rating.
Best-in-class ratings also extend out to the gas engine, which succeeds in hauling cargo both in the bed, and off the hitch. In the bed, the Gladiator takes on a payload of up to 1,710 pounds. From the hitch, it can tow up to 7,700 pounds, making it ideal for those who need a bit more strength than the 2,500 to 5,000 pounds that most of the mid-size SUVs can handle. Again, it’s practicality at its finest.
Keeping with Jeep tradition, the Gladiator sends power to all four wheels through a trail-rated 4x4 system. All cab configurations are four door, rather than the two-door setup you see on most trucks, which helps passengers to make their way into the back of the spacious, technology-filled cabin.
With such a wide array of skills, and best-in-class ratings where they matter most – in torque, payload and towing – the Jeep Gladiator checks many boxes for buyers who are looking for both performance as well as practicality. Here at Glenn Polk Auto, we’re ready to show you everything that the Gladiator is made of. Visit our inventory or stop by our showroom to get behind the wheel in Gainesville, Texas.
