Jeep Gladiator Horsepower

2023 Jeep Gladiator Interior View of Man on Beach

 

If a new Jeep Gladiator is on your must-have list this year, now is a great time to dive into the specs and find out which configuration is right for you in Hood River! You already know that this one-of-a-kind off-road pickup truck has everything you need for serious off-roading—from increased ground clearance to skid plates—but it’s just as great at towing, hauling, and efficient highway driving. The guide below from CH Urness Motor Company breaks down the Jeep Gladiator horsepower, towing capacity, engine options, and other key specs.

 

 

2023 Jeep Gladiator Horsepower, Torque, & Engines

The Gladiator is available with two stout engine options: a 3.6L V6 or a 3.0L diesel V6. The Jeep Gladiator 3.6 horsepower output, at 285 hp, is higher than the diesel’s output of 260 hp. That means you’ll get slightly stronger acceleration and a bit more oomph out on the highway in Goldendale, WA with the gas engine. When it comes to towing, the diesel engine’s higher torque output gives it an edge over the higher Jeep Gladiator 3.6 horsepower. Here’s a look at the detailed specs for both engines:

Standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6

  • 285 hp
  • 260 lb-ft of torque
  • EPA Estimated 16 MPG City and 23 MPG Highway
  • Variable Valve Timing
  • Engine Start/Stop technology
  • Towing capacity of 6,000 pounds

Available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6

  • 260 hp
  • 442 lb-ft of torque
  • EPA Estimated 22 MPG City and 28 MPG Highway
  • Variable Geometry Turbo technology
  • Towing capacity of 6,500 pounds

2023 Jeep Gladiator Payload, Efficiency, & MPG

Opting for the diesel engine also allows you to load more heavy equipment into the Gladiator’s bed. 2023 models configured with the 3.0L diesel engine have a payload maximum of 1,200 pounds, compared to a maximum of 1,150 pounds for models with the 3.6L gasoline engine.

If you’ll be traveling long distances between trailheads or job sites, you may also be comparing fuel economy specs for the two powertrains. Portland buyers should note that the turbodiesel engine delivers better fuel efficiency numbers on the highway:

  • 2023 Gladiator MPG with 3.6L gas V6, manual, and 4WD – 16/23 mpg city/highway
  • 2023 Gladiator MPG with 3.6L gas V6, automatic, and 4WD – 17/22 mpg city/highway
  • 2023 Gladiator MPG with turbodiesel, automatic, and 4WD: -22/28 mpg city/highway

2022 Jeep Gladiator Engine Options

Each of the Gladiator’s two engines offer a different kind of driving experience. The 3.6L Pentastar® V6 is a time-tested powerhouse, designed to deliver a balance of power and perseverance. The EcoDiesel V6 employs the latest fuel-saving diesel technology while generating exceptional levels of torque. See the specs here:

Standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6

  • 285 hp
  • 260 lb-ft of torque
  • EPA Estimated 17 MPG City and 22 MPG Highway
