From the aftermarket conversions to the concepts that have had Jeep fans talking for years, the company finally answers the call for a pickup with the new Gladiator. The mid-size truck will be all about capability with class-leading payload and towing numbers alongside fuel-efficient engine options that will include both a gas-powered model and an EcoDiesel.
The 3.0L V6 and EcoDiesel engines have been designed with fuel efficiency in mind with engine start stop technology in both models standard. The 3.6L V6 Pentastar will produce 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque while the 3.0L EcoDiesel will deliver 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. Both models will be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Production is set to start in the first half of 2019.
