Jeep drivers know what they want in a 4×4, and the company keep up their end by delivering a strong hardcore off-road vehicle that is capable of many things others simply cannot do.

The Jeep Gladiator Rubicon delivers legendary off-road capability courtesy of two advanced 4×4 systems. The Jeep Gladiator Rubicon model features the Rock-Trac Active On-Demand 4×4 system.

The Rubicon variant also offers improved articulation and total suspension travel with help from a segment- exclusive electronic sway-bar disconnect.

The Gladiator Rubicon is a truck as it is long, wide and what it cannot move out of its way, it can go over. It boasts a rugged, distinguished design aesthetic that is immediately recognizable due to its traditional Jeep design cues.

The Rubicon comes with LED headlamps and fog lamps and features daytime running lights with forward turn signals positioned on the front of the trapezoidal wheel flares.

At the rear, traditional square tail lamps also feature LED lighting as standard, giving way to a wide tailgate opening for unobstructed loading of cargo into the bed.


The three-piece hard top roof and doors can be removed, providing a segment-exclusive open-air option.

The 3.6-litre V6 Pentastar engine is across the range and the engine delivers 209kW and 347Nm of torque. The 8-speed ZF-Automatic transmission is also standard across the range.

The interior combines authentic Jeep styling, versatility, comfort and intuitive features, high-quality materials found throughout the cabin.

On the road the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon does everything needed but when off-road, it is a beast. It did not matter what was thrown at it, the Jeep did not slow down. With all the different controls and options there was something to suit every situation.

Jeep models are definitely not purchased to be good on fuel because highway driving was in the 12-litres per 100km. We wont event talk about off-roading as that is simply crazy. But fuel use is not what is import here, the fun factor is, and you cannot put a price on fun. Well, I guess you can because Jeep have done it.

The Jeep Gladiator Rubicon is priced from $87,250.
