2022 Jeep Gladiator Engine and Performance

The probability of getting powered by the same engine as the 2021 model is much higher. The 2022 Jeep Gladiator is equipped with a 3.6 Litre Pentastar V6 engine. It is capable of providing 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque with a 6-speed manual and automatic transmission. 

It offers the highest horsepower and RPM in its segment. Moreover, it also comes with another option of a 3.6L V6 turbo-diesel engine which shows some extra efficiency in fuel consumption. The turbo-diesel engine releases 260 horsepower along with 442 lb-ft of torque. 

The rival cars here can be seen to offer more transmission speed than the Gladiator. Despite coming in 6-speed manual and automatic transmission, it doesn't disappoint us with the horsepower that it exerts.

The Ford Ranger here surprisingly went ahead of all when it comes to achieving great speeds. Despite coming at a much lesser price than others, it kills all in terms of speed by reaching 0-60 MPH in 6.1 seconds thanks to the 310lb-ft of torque produced by its engine.

So after studying the chart we can say that the power section of the Gladiator is pretty solid. But if we get to see an increase in transmission speed as well as torque in the 2022 model, it would certainly get an upper hand in front of its competitors.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Fuel Economy

The 2022 Jeep Gladiators MPG figures will somewhat be adjacent to its 2021 model. The powertrain of the 2022 model is rumored to be the same as its counterpart. The fuel economy in both cities and highways is a little less than its rivals. To sum up although I expect frugality from a full blown pick-up truck, there is no denying the fact that there is some significant room for improvement for the 2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab in the gas mileage department.

But, what makes it special is its whooping 22-gallon fuel tank. It will certainly help you in staying away from the gas station for quite a long time. The V6 Turbo-Diesel engine on the other hand provides some extra mileage on the charts.

After comparing the 2012 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab with its competitors, it becomes clear that it lacks behind by a huge margin in terms of fuel economy. But it gets shadowed out by the massive fuel tank that it has. The fuel tank is capable of storing 22 gallons of gas at one go that usually comes out to be beneficial for long drives.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Interior

We have to agree to the fact that there would be no significant changes in the interiors. It will continue with the aesthetic and rugged design of the current year model. The comfort & perfection of the current model leaves no complaint behind it. So we are likely to see the same in the 2022 model as well. 

Now going through many trusted sources we came to know that The 2022 Jeep Gladiator will follow the same interior as of 2021. But the infotainment system is likely to evolve a bit with the addition of some new features. The previous models of this car had a superb cabin space that outperformed its rivals, hence no changes that can be expected too in the 2022 model.

 Now let us see some key interior features of this car:

  • Alpine Premium Sound System
  • Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control
  • Heated Front Seats
  • Uconnect 4C NAV with 8.4-Inch Display
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Traffic Link & Traffic Plus
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Wireless charging
  • Android Auto
  • Forward Facing Front-Trail Camera

Comfort and infotainment features are abundant in this car and most of this will feature in the 2022 model too. In addition to that, a Home WifiLink system is the most likely to get featured in this list.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Exterior

Since the 2022 Jeep Gladiator carries the DNA of the Jeep Wrangler. The exterior looks tough, rigid, and aesthetic. Jeep sculpted the exteriors perfectly with a combination of an SUV and a pickup truck. The muscular yet youthful and invigorating design language of the 2022 Jeep Gladiator really sets it apart as far as the competition is concerned. 

It is not going to undergo any further changes in its exterior. But what backs our solid confidence in this? The spy leaked road testing pictures of this car certainly left a hint for us. The exterior was mostly the same as its previous models and no visible changes were noticed.

The most important factor when we look at an offroad vehicle is the ground clearance & the wheelbase that is offered. The higher the number we see on these two aspects, the better it gets as an offroader. 

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab will certainly inherit these dimensions from the 2021 model. By doing so, it will become one of the best choices for people looking to get themselves indulged in thrill & adventure.

Some key exterior exterior features of the 2022 Jeep Gladiator are stated below-

  • Convertible Hardtop & Softtop
  • 33-inch Falken Tires
  • High Strength Steel Frame
  • DANA 44 Solid Axles
  • Front Sway Bar Disconnect System
  • Power Retractable Running Boards 
  • Heated Side Mirrors
  • Removable Doors

2022 Jeep Gladiator Safety

It is loaded with some of the latest and standout safety features to make you feel protected inside the cabin. The tough body along with the best-in-class features will probably make a good impact in terms of safety. Since the vehicle debuted in the year 2019. There are no complete safety test scores available for the 2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew vehicle. 

The NHTSA and IIHS both are yet to test the Jeep Gladiator 2019 model. Due to all these factors, we cannot come to a certain conclusion about its safety. But going through the specifications and past performance of Jeeps lineups. The safety of this car will not be the best in its segment, rather it will certainly come out to be average and satisfactory.

 Now let us get to know about some key safety features of the 2022 Jeep Gladiator:

  • Tire specific low tire pressure warning
  • Automated emergency braking
  • Blind-spot monitoring system
  • Adaptive cruise control with a full stop
  • Forward collision warning with active braking
  • Rear cross-path detection
  • Park-sense rear park assist
  • Parkview rear back up camera
  • Trailer sway control system

So these are some of the safety features included in the 2022 Jeep Gladiator. The chances of getting any new safety features in this model are very less. but if Jeep unexpectedly comes out with any of that it will give tough competition to its rivals in sales.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Competition

Jeep Gladiator crew cab vs Toyota Tacoma crew cab

The Toyota Tacoma is the second most pricey offering on this list after the Jeep Gladiator. With a sticker price of $31,915, the Tacoma houses a 3.5L V6, which is capable of fabricating 278 hp, and 265 lb.-ft. Of twisting force. The powerful grunt of the 2021 Toyota Tacoma makes it an ideal candidate for hardcore off-roading, which when combined with the massive payload capacity of the truck, makes it a preferred weapon of choice for unconqured terrains. The Toyota Tacoma is an ultimate offering of this segment, which houses absolute pickup traits at a much reasonable price than the Gladiator. 

Jeep Gladiator crew cab vs Honda Ridgeline crew cab

The 2021 Honda Ridgeline Crew cab is one of the major arch rivals of the Jeep Gladiator, as it offers the practicality, reliability and bleeding edge technological features on offer. The Honda Ridgeline has an overall lighter frame, which helps in boosting the MPG figures, shortening the stopping distance and better off the line acceleration. Although, having said that the 2021 Jeep Gladiator is no slouch as it offers great built quality, rugged off-road capabilities, powerful engine and better range when compared to the 2021 Honda Ridgeline. Overall, it can be safely said that the Honda Ridgeline and the Jeep Gladiator appeal to different sections of the consumer, looking to get different levels of output from their trucks.

Jeep Gladiator crew cab vs Ford Ranger crew cab

The 2021 Ford Ranger comes at a cheaper price as compared to Jeep Gladiator. The 2021 Ford Ranger edges out the Gladiator with higher transmission speeds, more torque, faster sprinting, efficient braking system, and fuel economy. The Jeep Gladiator fights back with more range, churning out a higher power, fuel capacity and dimensions. The trustworthiness of the Ford trucks combined with the feature rich and powerful nature.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Final Verdict

The price of the 2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab is yet to get officially released by Jeep. But looking at the past price trends and the upgrades in this model year. We can say that the price will certainly stay close to the 2021 model, which comes in the range of $ 35,000 to $45,000.

Now coming to the release date, no tentative dates were announced by the carmaker officially. So we have to wait for some time to get a clear idea of this.

Okay-okay

Pros - Bed size, 4WD, tall gearing ratio, styling

Cons - Chugs fuel like there is no tomorrow, noisy cabin and engine, turning radius should be smaller

Average at best If I were to sum up my experience with Gladiator in one word I’d say it is Okay! It is like any other vehicle with some good and some good aspects to it. The 4WD comes in handy during bad weather conditions, the bed size is big and helps in hauling stuff, love the design and how it looks like both a Jeep and a truck. On the other hand, it chugs fuel like there’s no tomorrow, the cabin is noisy and uncomfortable at times especially when the road is bad.

Should be more powerful

Pros - Handling is good, keyless entry is handy, mpg is great

Cons - Lacking towing capacity, not very comfortable to drive, needs more power

Add more power and it would be perfect If anything Gladiator needs more power. Needs a little more performance focussed tuning. Why? Because it is a TRUCK! The downshifts always end up with a hesitance to ensure the occupant’s comfort I guess but they go against the very being of a truck. A truck needs to have power, torque and should be able to tow. And Gladiator has nothing of the before-mentioned things.

Pros - "Excellent off-roader Removable top and doors Two rows of comfortable, adult-friendly seats"

Cons - "Below-average predicted reliability rating Sluggish engine High price tag"

Makes a good choice! I love the look and stance of my Jeep. I was able to get a Jeep and have a truck bed for my needs as well. I love my Gladiator! Everyone stares at us and when I’m at the gas station someone always asks about it. University CDJR of Rome gave me one of the best car buying experiences ever! The process was quick and easy. I would recommend them to my grandmother! Fast, competent, and overall amazing customer service. Thank you University CDJR
