Delivering a maximum of 285 horsepower, the Pentastar engine propels the 2021 Jeep Gladiator. Receiving widespread acclaim in the auto industry, this V-6 gasoline powertrain unleashes 260 pound-feet of torque. When enhanced with the Max Tow Package, this six-cylinder powerhouse delivers a class-leading towing rating of 7,650 pounds in compliance with the latest SAE J2807 criteria. Rated at 280 hp and 262 lb-ft, a 3.5-L engine is standard under the hood of the 2021 Honda Ridgeline. This V-6 gas engine isn’t designed to pull a trailer that’s loaded with more than 5,000 pounds. Assembled according to the EcoDiesel architecture, a 3.0-L engine with a turbocharger is optional on the 2021 Jeep Gladiator. This signature diesel engine delivers a best-in-class torque output of 442 lb-ft. Delivering a fuel economy of 28 MPG on the highway, the EcoDiesel V-6 powerplant has a towing capacity of 6,500 pounds. You may buy the Jeep midsize pickup truck with a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Operating on a shift-by-wire mechanic, a nine-speed auto transmission propels the Honda model, which achieves a maximum fuel economy of 24 MPG on the highway.
Employing a two-speed transfer case, the Command-Trac 4×4 drive system gives the 2021 Jeep Gladiator plenty of leverage on rugged terrains. Under certain driving conditions, this patented driveline may create a 2.72:1 ratio for smooth off-road handling. Having a part-time design, the Command-Trac 4WD system is available for this Trail Rated Jeep pickup truck. Some other advanced components that supplement this drivetrain include the Dana 44 axles, rock rails, and skid plates. You may also opt for the Rock-Trac 4×4 drive system that works in sync with the Tru-Lok differentials, which may be engaged and disengaged through toggle switches on the instrument panel. Controlling the Selec-Speed Control and other mechanical systems, the Off-Road+ Mode is another utility at your disposal. Additionally, you may disconnect the Jeep Gladiator’s front sway bar by pushing a single button. Despite having an AWD with the Intelligent Variable Torque Management, the 2021 Honda Ridgeline doesn’t challenge the Trail Rated capabilities of the Jeep pickup truck. Of course, the Desert Rated Mojave edition also beats the Honda model in terms of performance on sand and mud. Off-road enthusiasts will surely appreciate the class-leading water-fording, ground clearance, and articulation of the Jeep model.
Measuring 8.4 inches diagonally, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator’s Uconnect 4 infotainment center integrates SiriusXM Guardian, Android Auto, Wi-Fi, GPS navigation, and lots of other digital technologies. You just won’t find as many high-tech amenities in the 2021 Honda Ridgeline’s standard multimedia console that has an 8.0-inch electrostatic touch screen. Facing the road ahead, the TrailCam Off-Road Camera is another class-leading technology that’s optional on the Trail Rated Jeep pickup truck.
