The new 2021 Jeep Gladiator outperforms the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado with a much stronger standard engine.   Rumbling under the hood of the Gladiator is a 3.6-litre V6 motor from Pentastar. Boasting Stop-Start technology, it delivers 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. While this unit can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission, every trim level includes the Command-Trac part-time shift-on-the-fly 4x4 system.
