You may have caught a glance at the Jeep Gladiator hard at work or play around the Atlanta metro area recently, and found yourself wondering about its capable appeal. It has been available for a few years now here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow, but there’s still a lot to unpack, relish, and have a weekend blast with. It boasts all the traits that Jeep lovers are on the hunt for while providing the added convenient capability of the truck bed.
The Motor Biscuit team excitedly claimed on their blog last week that the Gladiator easily outranked the Toyota Tacoma for the challenge of tackling the wild. Here is a trio of great things the Gladiator offers, and a bit of insight into just how supremely useful this outdoor-ready and hefty hauler is!
The 2023 Gladiator Boasts Segment-Leading Passenger Space:
There’s nothing better than times when you know you’re bringing everyone else along that will assist you in having an all-out adventure. It could be exploring caverns, kayaking, rock climbing, or mountain biking: no matter what’s on the agenda, it’s always fun with extra characters to round out the show. The 2023 Gladiator boasts more overall size than both the 2023 Toyota Tacoma and 2023 Ford Ranger when it comes down to passenger space. There is a champion amount of backseat room for passengers, and allowing for child seats is also much simpler than it is in rivals. Folding the rear seats for larger carry-on items, guitar amps, or Home Depot run scores is also simple, where you are once again enjoying the best of both worlds.
“The Last Reliable Manual in the West”:
Most trucks are now in the habit of axing the all-out enthusiast’s treat of manual transmissions, and diesel engines are on the chopping block as well. The 2023 Jeep Gladiator is one of those rare and climactic models that go far beyond just a slight bit unique, in that the burly things that we were supposed to celebrate the coming absence of are brought to light! The available 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel cranks out 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque, with a manual shift setup to boot and fuel rating that is well worth the upgrade’s effort.
The Stately Stance of Tough-Job Capable:
With a best-in-class towing capability of 7,700 lbs, the Gladiator can also handle a payload of up to 1,710 lbs, which renders is a bit more than just a quick A to B mover and shaker. We’d also highly recommend the Trailer Tow package, offering up the extra goods of a 240-amp alternator, a Class IV receiver hitch, primo-grade engine cooling, and trailer hitch zoom. Max Tow puts things into even a more productive and all-out equipped state for the choosiest of chores with all-terrain tires, heavy-duty Dana 44 wide axles, and A 10-axle ratio.
Also defined by the Car and Driver crew as “the near-perfect prescription for adults who are allergic to car washes and feel best in the great outdoors”, the Gladiator has proficiently won over the outdoor enthusiast category in droves. Don’t forget to check out the Capability Package available for the High-Altitude trim that provides trail-bound assistance with a winch-capable steel front bumper, a front off-road camera, and steel rock sliders.
