Discover the Power of the Diesel Jeep Gladiator

Diesel trucks are a common sight, but spotting a diesel-powered Jeep Gladiator out in the wild is rare.

While certainly not as common as the V6-powered Gladiators, these elusive diesel-powered trucks are a sight to behold. With their powerful, roaring engine and tremendous off-roading capabilities, these Gladiators are ready to conquer!

Diesel engines have numerous benefits, but one of the biggest is the massive amount of torque. The 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 on the Gladiator delivers 442 lb.-ft. of torque, which dwarfs the 260 lb.-ft. of torque on the stock 3.6L Pentastar V6. Another advantage of the diesel engine is the minimal repairs and increased durability compared to gas-powered vehicles. Because there are fewer moving parts in a diesel engine than in a gas engine, so they usually require less maintenance.


Another advantage of the EcoDiesel engine is the improved fuel economy. With 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway, the diesel Gladiator is one of the most fuel-efficient trucks on the market. The diesel engine also has a longer range than the gas-powered Gladiator, which means you can venture further into the wilderness without worrying about running out of fuel. So spend more time exploring and less time at the gas station!


The EcoDiesel Gladiator has all the benefits of a diesel truck, but it also has all the outdoorsy features you would expect from a Jeep. Go exploring with the Gladiator’s outdoorsy four-wheel drive system and unbeatable off-road capabilities. All Gladiator trucks come with the special trail-rated badge, meaning it was put through vigorous off-road testing. The badge symbolizes Jeep’s commitment to producing vehicles that can handle harsh off-road conditions.


Unlike other trucks on the market, every single Gladiator trim is geared towards leaving the pavement. The diesel engine is available on the Willys Sport, Overland, Rubicon and High Altitude trims.

Do you love the sound and smell of a diesel engine? If so, you can take off the doors, remove the top and even fold down your Gladiator’s windshield to really enjoy the diesel experience! How many diesel trucks gives you the open-air experience of a Gladiator? The answer is none; the Jeep Gladiator is truly a truck like no other.

The EcoDiesel has also available on the Jeep Wrangler SUV, but you better hurry because Jeep will stop producing them in 2023. The final diesel-powered Wrangler will be the 2023 Rubicon FarOut edition, following a growing trend of automakers removing diesels from their lineups. But don’t worry, the diesel-powered Gladiator is here to stay! So, rev up that diesel engine and explore the great outdoors!


The diesel-powered Jeep Gladiator is the perfect combination of power, fuel economy and off-roading capability. Whether you’re looking to tackle tough trails or just hit the open road, this truck will get you where you need to go.
