2021 Jeep Gladiator Features

There are four main trim levels available for the Gladiator, and each one is packed to the brim with features. The Sport comes with cruise control, an eight-speaker audio system, a 5-inch central display, a folding soft top, removable doors, and a fold-down front windshield. A few sub-trims are available for the Sport, such as the Willy's and the 80th-anniversary edition that gets you some luxury and tech upgrades. Up next is the Overland, which adds automatic headlights, heated power mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic climate control, and a 7-inch central display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the mix. If you're looking for some premium off-road features, the Rubicon gives it to you with 33-inch all-terrain tires, fenders with increased clearance, and locking front and rear differentials. Also standard for the Rubicon are FOX shock absorbers, rock rails, skid plates, and an electronically disconnectable front stabilizer bar. Rounding things out is the Mojave, as it has a reinforced frame, FOX internal bypass shock absorbers, and a 1-inch lift for the front suspension.

Does the Rubicon come with premium safety features?

You bet it does! While we are suitably impressed with the power, we are just as impressed with the safety systems. Available is the spectacular Forward Collision Mitigation system, which will warn you of an impending collision and will even apply the brakes in certain situations. There is also an Adaptive Cruise Control System that will allow the driver to maintain a pre-set distance between the pickup and the vehicles in front of it. Finally, there is a Blind Spot Monitoring System that will monitor your surroundings and allow you to make better lane changes.
