2021 Jeep Gladiator Price And Specs

  • 2021 Jeep Gladiator pricing and specifications
  • Improved payload ratings across the range
  • New Night Eagle variant announced
  • Rubicon gets standard luxury updates
  • Available from June 2021, with entry-level pricing starting from $68,450 MSRP.

It’s out with the old and in with the new at your local Jeep dealer, with the previous entry-level Gladiator offering the ‘Sport S’ being ousted in favour of the Night Eagle. Not only does it sound sexier, it is sexier, thanks to some dipped in black bits and a more feature-laden spec than the model it replaces.

Priced from $68,450 the Night Eagle comes standard with Jeep’s 8.4” Uconnect touchscreen, Satellite Navigation and Apple Car Play and Android Auto, as well as a security alarm, remote start system and a 4.10 final drive ratio. Jeep says it provides a ’20 percent customer advantage over the Sport S’, which might mean you’re getting more, or it’s better off-road or it just makes you a better customer. Whatever it means, it will be 20 percent easier telling your mates you drive a ‘Night Eagle’ rather than a ‘Sport S’, and they’re going to think you’re some kind of ninja.

Gladiator Night Hawk replaces the Sport-S as the entry-level Gladiator.

The Night Hawk, like the superseded Sport S, is fitted with Jeep’s Selec-Trac four-wheel-drive system featuring a 47.8:1 crawl ratio and Dana differentials, with the vulnerable bits being protected by rock sliders and three underbody protection plates.

Jeep hasn’t left the top-spec Rubicon untouched, adding standard fitment heated leather seats and a heated steering wheel.

In other news the Gladiator range has received an official payload increase of 73kgs, taking the total payload for both the Night Eagle and Rubicon to 693kg. That’s enough the see the Gladiator reclassified from an off-road passenger vehicle to a light-goods carrying vehicle, but not enough to see it challenging the one-tonne dual-cab utes for ‘work truck’ duties, which was never the point of the Gladiator, to begin with.

“After a year of being on the market in Australia, we’ve listened to our customers and have invested in improving the payload capacity of the Jeep Gladiator, elevating its capability and adventure-ready stance,” said Tom Noble, Marketing and Communications Director, Jeep Australia.

“We’re constantly looking at ways to improve customer value with our vehicles, and the Jeep Gladiator Night Eagle ensures customers can buy into the Jeep Gladiator range and gain premium equipment as a standard,” continued Mr Noble.

The easiest decision you’ll have when buying your new Gladiator will be which engine to choose. There remains just the one, Jeep’s venerable 209kW/347Nm 3.6-litre petrol V6 teamed with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

As part of its 80th birthday celebration, Jeep has introduced the ‘Jeep Wave’ program for new Jeep owners, which includes capped-price servicing, lifetime roadside assistance (if your Jeep is serviced through the Jeep dealer network), and a five-year/100,000km warranty.

The refreshed Jeep Gladiator range will be available in Dealerships from June 2021, starting from $68,450 MSRP.
