Another Gladiator has entered the arena.

The 2021 Jeep Gladiator range opens with a new Sport S variant, priced at $65,450 before on-road costs.

That brings the cost of entry into a Gladiator down by over $10,000.

It’s available to order now, arriving in dealerships this month.

It’s visually distinguished from the previous base model, the Overland, through its use of black fender flares and a black removable roof and smaller, 17-inch alloy wheels.

It shares the Overland’s Selec-Trac on-demand four-wheel drive system with heavy-duty Dana front and rear axles.

Like the Overland, it also includes standard autonomous emergency braking blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, and a reversing camera with front and rear parking sensors.

Inside, it uses a smaller, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that lacks satellite navigation but still includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while the Overland’s leather upholstery is substituted for cloth.

It’s available with two option packages, including a $2950 Lifestyle and Adventure package that adds a roll-up tonneau cover, spray-in bedliner, and a wireless bluetooth speaker.

For a full list of features, scroll down to the Standard Equipment section.

Pricing

  • 2021 Jeep Gladiator Sport S: $65,450

Engines

All 2021 Jeep Gladiator models use a naturally-aspirated 3.6-litre petrol V6 engine. It produces 209kW of power and 347Nm of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

All Gladiators are four-wheel drive but there are two different systems. The Sport S and Overland use Jeep’s Selec-Trac on-demand system while the Rubicon upgrades to the Rock-Trac on-demand system.

Rock-Trac adds locking front and rear differentials, Fox Performance shocks, and a 4.10 rear axle ratio, plus the ability to electronically disconnect the front stabiliser bar.

Fuel Economy

The 2021 Jeep Gladiator consumes 11.2L/100km on the ADR combined cycle in Sport S and Overland trim and 12.4L/100km in the Rubicon.

It uses 91RON regular unleaded fuel.

Dimensions

The 2021 Jeep Gladiator measures 5591mm long, 1905mm tall (1909mm in the Rubicon) and 1894mm wide.

It has an approach angle of 40.7 degrees, breakover angle of 18.4 degrees, and a departure angle of 25.1 degrees.

Braked towing capacity is 2721kg and unbraked is 750kg, with a towball download of 272kg.

Servicing and Warranty

The 2021 Jeep Gladiator requires servicing every 12 months or 12,000km, whichever comes first.

In addition to a five-year, 100,000km warranty, Jeep offers five years of capped-price servicing. Each service costs $399.

Safety

The Jeep Gladiator has a three-star rating from ANCAP with a 2019 date stamp. ANCAP gave the Gladiator the same rating and category scores as the Wrangler due to the two models’ close relation.

The Gladiator and Wrangler received an adult occupant protection score of 60 per cent, child occupant protection score of 80 per cent, vulnerable road user protection score of 49 per cent, and a safety assist score of 51 per cent.
