The Jeep Gladiator Sport is a model that anyone who encounters brush, tundra, and other various forms of rough resistance is going to immediately love: the go-anywhere capability of the brand resonates with many who are masters at outdoor expedition. This model packs a 3.6-liter V6 engine, connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Competitors such as the Raptor and Navara were called out for not being able to keep up with the testing staff at Autocar.co.Nz, in regards to the leaf springs and overall ride: yes, we are absolutely positive here at Landmark Dodge that the Gladiator Sport delivers 100% what it promised!
When the Gladiator was taken off-road and leaned in hard to put the suspension to the test, it proved to be massively worth its weight on stretches of uneven ground, rutted-out tracks, and hazard-full stretches of land. After the events of the past year, there will be many auto enthusiasts who can't wait to get their hands on something a bit more rugged and able to fully take on the wild, and to unleash the air sunroof on board you just have to unclip 8 latches and lift off two of the overhead roof sections.
The test drivers at the helm here headed straight to an off-road area to check out just how well the Gladiator Sport fared on the turf it was dedicated to and designed for most. The good amount of ground clearance was appreciated as the Gladiator had to clear large ruts and various levels of displaced sand and rock. Completing full-lock turnarounds was a snap, experiencing minimal binding and displaying the utmost in steady-going off-road ability. The Rubicon model offers front and rear locking differential, and the Sport brings to the table the benefit of Selec-trac Active on Demand 4wd system with high and low ratio.
This particular crew got more thumbs up and positive hollers than they had seen In awhile while cruising down the busy highway to Auckland in this model, and they all loved the large-sized luster and feel of the Gladiator Sport. Car and Driver deemed this is a certain breed of model that is “always off-road ready”, and were continuously loving the extra tool in the form of an added cargo bed. The addition of the Cargo Management pack provides a 400-watt power inverter, an under-seat storage bin, and auxiliary switches along with upgraded charging for additions such as lightbars that will serve as optimal guides for night-time tundra and dune descents.
When properly equipped you'll be towing around 4000 pounds, and while looking to load up the Gladiators cargo bed you can yield up to 1700 pounds of payload. We are hoping that you push the Gladiator Sport model to the limits that require the perks of the common-sense installation of waterproof-button start, heated front steering wheel, and heated front seats. Key safety features you'll enjoy when traversing the most scenic and challenging routes in Georgia are available adaptive cruise control with forward-collision warning, available blind-spot monitoring, and available rear parking sensors.
