The-New 2021 Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Introducing https://youtu.be/vOn_LLB9rp0

Having only been on the scene for a single model year, you might not expect many changes for the 2021 Jeep Gladiator, and well, you'd be right. That doesn't mean that the midsize do-all pickup based on Jeep's venerable Wrangler SUV is returning for its sophomore season empty-handed. On the contrary, there's a new diesel engine for the Gladiator, plus two new model trims, including the 80th Anniversary Edition and Willys.

Headlining 2021 Jeep Gladiator developments is the availability of the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine that joins the existing 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. This is the same diesel V6 that was wedged in between the Wrangler's flat fenders last year, and unsurprisingly, it conjures up an identical 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque when paired to a mandatory 8HP75 eight-speed automatic. For comparison's sake, the VM Motori diesel built in Cento, Italy, has 25 fewer ponies than the gas version, but a whopping 182 more pound-feet of twist than the Pentastar.
As is true with its torque, the EcoDiesel's fuel economy increases precipitously, moving from the Pentastar's 17 miles per gallon city, 22 highway and 19 combined (automatic transmission) to 22 mpg city, 28 highway and 24 combined for Sport and Overland models. The Rubicon's bigger tires and other changes result in a lower 20/25/22 rating. Despite being slightly lower than the equivalent (lighter) Wrangler Unlimited Sport or Overland's 22/29/25 ratings, these are impressive efficiency increases. With an 18.3-gallon tank, the EcoDiesel should be able to outlast your bladder, going around 500 miles between fill-ups.
