2022 Jeep Gladiator review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Jeep Gladiator?

The Jeep Gladiator is a mid-size crew-cab pickup truck with room for five people. It has a standard 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. An optional 260-hp, turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 pairs with an eight-speed automatic. Part-time four-wheel drive is standard, and competitors include the Ford Ranger, Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma. You can see how the Gladiator scored in our Car Seat Check here.

What’s New on the 2022 Jeep Gladiator?

A 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system is now standard, and Jeep says the cabin air filter can remove 95% of particulates.

Which Features in the 2022 Jeep Gladiator Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • Folding soft top
  • Fold-down windshield
  • Removable doors
  • Push-button start
  • Cloth seats
  • Cruise control
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity 

Available features include:

  • Three-piece hard top
  • Spray-in bedliner
  • Household power outlet in cargo box
  • Adjustable cargo tie-downs
  • Power locks, mirrors and windows

Should I Buy the 2022 Jeep Gladiator?

The Jeep Gladiator is a unique entrant in the mid-size pickup truck class. The off-road Rubicon version has the rock-crawling ability of a muscled-up mountain goat, but the Gladiator’s poor straight-line tracking is a problem when driving on paved surfaces. It’s also expensive — especially uplevel trims.

Stay away from Chrysler & Jeep

I bought it with 800 miles on it, I think it was a lemon law car. The dealer had it most of the first month. The check engine light kept coming on ! They were working with engineers from Chrysler as to why it was happening! First Oxygen sensor then fuel injectors then something else! For a month then they finally figured out it needed a new computer!! I just got the congratulations on 1 year anniversary of owning it in an E-mail from the dealer and a light came on the Gismo that starts and stops the engine at redlights or stop signs!! I called but they could get me in for 10 days so I made the appointment Told me it was a 3 hour appointment it was one of the batteries! I told them I only had one. "Oh no you have a Large one under the one you see!" The service rep tells me. It was under warranty but endend up being the small one! I tried trading that day Cost me close to $50,000 a year before they offered $30,000 I went to another dealer and traded it! Lost my A_ s! but got a Chevy I can count on!

Don’t buy it

Since we have had our gladiator we have not found it to live up to what we were told. First issue was a problem with the fuel tank vent causing fuel to spill out and poor gas mileage TOOK 6 months to get the problem resolved! Unacceptable! Second issue is the rear and front windshields. Our rear windshield busted out and we have no Idea how. Talking with the repair people it’s very common both are very weak because there is no frame so it breaks very easy. Third this underpowered turd cannot tow with any kind of tolerable gas mileage. Cost us a fortune to tow our small 22’ RV trailer.

What’s Not to Like

This is a.rock solid vehicle that defines “utility” better than all the rest. You have tons of ways to configure the vehicle every day. Open air roof, doors off, entire top off, pick-up truck uses, off roading, climbing, travel, snowshoeing, skiing, snow driving, trails and dirt roads, hiking, carry bed loads, trailering, ATVs, etc, etc, etc. No way to ever find it boring. Plus, the extra bonus of the culture, friendliness, the wave, jeep groups, and the way it promotes and nurtures getting outdoors and getting active. No issues. Alpine stereo is great. Nav is great. Heat is great. comfort great, carrying fun loads great, towing to 4K lbs great. No complaints.
