Driving and Handling
The 2022 Gladiator is a beast on the road and it drives smoothly and efficiently through the city, however, it takes the stage in a different light when it leaves the regular road behind. It comes alive in its off-roading capabilities, as it doesn’t simply just drive through tough terrain, it thrives in them. The Gladiator has earned the first-ever Trail Rated badge thanks to the legendary traction, water fording capabilities, impressive maneuverability, high levels of articulation, and incredible ground clearance. Its capabilities are showcased even further depending on the trim that is chosen, as each trim is designed to handle different and unique environments and circumstances. The Rubicon, for example, shines on the rocks, while the Mojave shines within the desert sands. Each trim drives effortlessly through each terrain no matter how tough or simple.
