Jeep has introduced the 2021 Gladiator Willys which features additional off-road capability.
Based on the Gladiator Sport and Sport S, the Willys Edition has a unique exterior with a gloss black grille and black 17-inch aluminum wheels that are wrapped in 32-inch BFGoodrich KM2 mud terrain tires.
The truck has also been equipped with Rubicon rock rails and shocks as well as a limited-slip rear differential. There are also Willys hood decals and a retro four-wheel drive badge on the tailgate.
Interior changes are minor, but include all-weather slush mats. However, the Sport S variant is equipped with the Convenience and Technology packages. They add an automatic climate control system, a universal garage door opener, and an 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
Like the standard Gladiator, the truck has a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that produces 285 hp (213 kW / 289 PS) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual and a four-wheel drive system, but an eight-speed automatic is available for $2,000.
Customers can also opt for a $4,000 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 with 260 hp (194 kW / 264 PS) and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. The diesel is available exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Jeep still charges an extra $2,000 for it.
Pricing starts at $35,490 for the Gladiator Willys Sport and $39,240 for the Gladiator Willys Sport S – excluding a destination charge of $1,495. The models are currently available and you can configure them here.
