Jeeps Trail Rated models are made out of rocks. The American off-road specialist is now adding a Mojave version for the Gladiator to its specifications. This should enable the pickup to travel particularly quickly on unpaved roads and in the sand.
Jeep as a manufacturer of SUV cars with strong character plans to present a new model from the Gladiator lineup. The variant took the shape of a pickup model, but with the ability and off-road terrain performance inherent in the Jeep brand.
This time Jeep launched the Gladiator Mojave, it had a “desert rated” emblem. This means that the car has the ability to devour any desert terrain in high performance.
The 4×4 capability has always been the main pillar of the new Jeep and the Jeep Gladiator Mojave is a natural extension of the well-known capability of the legendary Trail Rated 4×4.
The engineers pimp the chassis of the Gladiator Mojave with Fox high-performance shock absorbers and hydraulic impact buffers that can withstand strong impacts and are protected against overheating. The front axle is raised by 2.54 centimeters.
There is also an underride protection plate at the front. The entire frame and axles, as well as the steering knuckles, are reinforced, the track grows by 1.3 centimeters. As with the production model, the rear axle can be locked for better grip on slippery surfaces.
The Jeep Gladiator Mojave packed a 33-inch falcon wild peak off-road tires that sit on the 17-inch rims. The ground clearance measures 29.5 centimeters while the front slope angle is clocked at 44.7 degrees, while the rear is at 25.5 degrees.
The Mojave specification can currently only be combined with the 3.6-liter V6 engine capable of producing maximum power of 285 hp and engine stop-start (ESS) features as standard equipment.
This engine is designed to provide a broad torque band with a focus on low-end torque, an important property required for extreme off-road. There are two choices of transmission, namely 6-speed manual, and 8-speed automatic.
Deliveries of the Gladiator Mojave will begin in the second quarter of 2020 – Jeep will announce the prices shortly before. The new Gladiator is a success for Jeep snd what the carmaker is up to is now clearly focusing on growing into a major player in the extremely lucrative pickup market in the USA.
