After 28 years of absence on the pick-up market, Jeep arrives with its Gladiator equipped with a large V6 Diesel on the French market. The truck is displayed at a high call price: no less than €70,900 including tax or €59,083 excluding tax. Like the Wrangler or other American specialties whose price increases drastically when crossing the Atlantic, this novelty therefore seems to be mainly reserved for enthusiasts.
The Jeep Gladiator will appear in French dealerships this September 2021 in the Overland Launch Edition version, a limited series created for the launch of the vehicle in France. No gasoline engine, hybrid powertrain or even rechargeable hybrid under the hood of the American pick-up, but a single V6 3.0 Diesel MultiJet engine in the catalog, with its 264 hp and 600 Nm of torque. Despite appearances, this unit meets the Euro 6-D Final standard with its Stop&Start system and its association with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Gladiator's Selec-Trac 4x4 all-wheel drive with two-speed transfer case allows it to climb anywhere, while benefiting from four seats on board and a spacious rear cargo bed.

The latter, made of steel, is covered with a PVC protection and offers a payload of 613 kg. With this metal protrusion, the total length of the vehicle is 5.59 m, or 70 cm more than a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The wheelbase reaches 3.48 m on its side (+40 cm compared to the long Wrangler). The Gladiator, only available in a 4-seater version, is equipped with a hard-top which can be removed, just like the doors. Utility in spirit, it can also tow up to 2,721 kg.
Sold as a limited edition, the Jeep Gladiator “Overland Launch Edition” is fully equipped, to partly justify its high price. It comes standard with LED lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, dark-tinted rear windows, steel spare wheel, and heated seats and steering wheel.
