The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Willys, engineered to be the most off-road capable Jeep truck ever, builds on the brand’s rich combined heritage of utility functionality and versatility.

Equipped with the proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and a versatile cargo box, all Gladiator models are Trail Rated with a badge indicating the vehicle is designed to perform in five key consumer-oriented performance categories: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording.

Jeep Gladiator Willys: Joins Jeep Lineup

“Building on the widely popular Wrangler Willys, we’re thrilled to announce the Willys model is joining the Gladiator lineup as another way for Jeep to connect with our customers,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – North America. “Gladiator Willys models harken back to the original Jeep lineup while offering an aggressive look and additional increased capability.”

The Gladiator Willys edition features a limited-slip rear differential, Rubicon cab rock rails and shocks, and 32-inch BFGoodrich KM2 mud-terrain tires. These features, combined with Jeep’s Command-Trac 4×4 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, bolster the Gladiator Willys’ off-road capability.

This added capability is highlighted by a rugged appearance. Special exterior design cues feature a Willys hood decal, heritage 4WD tailgate decal, unique black 17-inch aluminum wheels with gray pad print and a gloss black sport grille. All-weather slush mats are also standard. The Sport S based Gladiator Willys also includes standard Technology Group with 7-inch radio with connective services and Convenience Group.

The Gladiator Willys edition is available in eight colors: Black, Granite Crystal, Sting Gray, Billet, Firecracker Red, White, Hydro Blue and Snazzberry.

The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Willys has a starting MSRP of $35,265 (plus $1,495 destination) and is now available.
