Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Mopar atelier offered its Jeep Gladiator pickup. Using components and accessories from the Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) company catalogs, the atelier specialists created, in their opinion, a truly “right” Gladiator, equipped with everything necessary for the most extreme trips.
The basis of the project was the Rubicon version – a top-end modification with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, a manual gearbox and Command-Trac all-wheel drive with a rigid front axle connection. The pickup was equipped with an elevator suspension kit that increases ground clearance by 51 mm, with tubular doors and additional lighting units from the JPP catalog. Also, the “right” Gadiator got power bumpers, steel engine and battery plates and 17-inch wheels.
Inside, there are leather Katzkin seat covers and all-weather floor mats. On the loading platform, cross members from the Ram 1500 are installed with the Trail Rail system for mounting a bike or kayak from the Mopar catalog. For particularly valuable items, a lockable box was also installed in the cargo compartment there.
The new generation Jeep Galdiator debuted introduced two years ago. The car is equipped with third-generation Dana 44 reinforced bridges, in the Rubicon version – 33-inch off-road tires, a switchable front stabilizer and a power rear bumper. In the engine range, the gasoline 3.6 V6 Pentastar (289 hp, 353 Nm) and the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel (264 hp, 599 Nm). “Diesel” is paired with an eight-speed “automatic”. The same “automatic” or six-speed “mechanics” are offered in a pair of gasoline engines.
