2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel Review

Jeep’s lineup of vehicles has always been regarded for their myriad of commendable specifications, one of which being its engine. Now, Jeep has added to their list of engine accolades with the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel.

What is it that makes this engine—and the pickup as a whole—ideal for folks throughout Collierville, Memphis, and Germantown? The team at Collierville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) is here to show you with the following 2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel review.

Let’s get started!

Jeep Gladiator Engine Specs

2021 Jeep Gladiator: Say Hello to EcoDiesel

Every single car or truck on the road has an engine. After all, it’s what propels your vehicle forward. However, not all engines are created equal, and the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine was designed to stand out from the pack. Take a look at its stats in the chart below:

3.0L EcoDiesel V6




442 lb-ft

City/Hwy MPG


Towing Capacity

6,500 lbs.

That’s not all this engine is capable of. It also offers an 8-speed automatic transmission, Variable Geometry Turbo technology and wide track axles for increased acceleration, while also providing enough strength to handle low-end torque.

Plus, with the aforementioned 6,500 pounds of torque, you’ll be able to haul larger items such as boats, bikes, or trailers with ease.

Jeep Gladiator Off-Roading

Jeep Gladiator Diesel: Off-Roading Compatibility

While the 2021 Gladiator’s diesel engine is great on its own, it’s even better when paired with Jeep’s compelling compatibility features. The Rubicon trim, for example, offers 11.1 inches of ground clearance, allowing the vehicle to ride over rocks and small debris with ease.

Moreover, all Gladiator trims feature Jeep’s Trail Rated® Badge. In earning this title, all vehicles must undergo a series of tests which prove their ability to withstand harsh conditions on tough terrain. With this honor comes notable water fording. A higher air intake and special water sealing allows your Gladiator to ride through streams and creeks of up to 30 inches.

Some other Jeep off-roading perks include higher levels of articulation, Jeep Brand 4×4 systems for increased traction, and precision steering for more accurate maneuverability.

Jeep Gladiator Interior

Spacious Interior Measurements

Now that we’ve covered the outward features of this powerful pickup, let us move inside and take a look at the Jeep Gladiator’s interior cabin.

From the moment you step foot inside this vehicle, you’ll notice rather roomy and comfortable seating accommodations. Up front, drivers will feel relaxed and recharged atop available 6-way directional-control seating, while front passengers can enjoy optional 4-way directional control. Available dual-zone front air conditioning adds to the personalization factor, as well.

We mentioned the Gladiator’s interior cabin is roomy, and we mean it. Check out these interior measurements for an in-depth look:

  • Legroom: 41.2 in./38.3 in.
  • Headroom: 42.8 in./42.8 in.
  • Hip room: 53.9 in./55.9 in.
  • Shoulder room: 55.7 in./55.7 in.

As you can see, no matter where you’re sitting, you’ll feel at ease along your journey.
