The 2022 Jeep Gladiator will inherit the brand’s reputation of rugged and skilled off-roading. From iconic 7-slot grille design to removable body panels, from round headlights to massive fender flares, the Jeep Gladiator is nearly identical to aggressive Wrangler and it too can reach out to beaten tracks for ascertaining adventures. Coming in an almost similar package as last year, the 2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab will once again go head-on against the likes of Ford Ranger SuperCrew, Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab, and Toyota Tacoma Double cab.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Features

7.0/10

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator will be available in four main variants namely Sport, Overland, Rubicon, and Mojave. Other than these main trims there are several special editions and anniversary edition trims available too. A few of them worth mentioning are the Sport S, Willys, and 80th Anniversary Edition trim all based on the base Sport trim and come with their unique exterior design and offers a bevy extra features on the inside, usually seen on higher trims. 

The entry-level Sport trim is expected to carry a sticker price of above $35,000, and the range-topping Mojave trim is expected to be priced over $47,000. While a fully loaded Jeep Gladiator in the top two trims could easily breach the sixty grand figure.  All the variants come with a 5-foot cargo bed and four-wheel drive as standard. The V6 gasoline engine comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, while an eight-speed automatic is optional.

The V6 turbo-diesel engine is available as an option on all except Mojave trim. Although going for the turbo-diesel V6 also necessitates adding the eight-speed automatic transmission. Other than the standard features listed below Jeep also offers a wide range of optional features either standalone or bundled in the form of packages. Optional features include a premium Alpine sound system, Class IV tow hitch, leather-trimmed seats, LED headlights, etc.

While optional driver assistance features available on the 2022 Gladiator include rear parking sensors, forward collision mitigation, blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, etc.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator will continue to sport a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 as standard, and the block punches out 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, which is mated to a 6-speed manual that sends power to the 4WD system. 8-speed automatic transmission is available as an option for $2,000 extra. Apart from the optional transmission, there is another 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 engine available as an option, for more on this read our Jeep Gladiator Diesel Crew Cab review.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab Engine Bay

Those looking for a torquey engine can surely opt for the turbo-diesel V6 but the highest tow rating is of the gasoline V6 powered Gladiator. The gasoline V6 powered Gladiator boasts a towing capacity between 4,000 to a maximum of 7,650 pounds when equipped properly.  Being a Jeep and that too based on the Wrangler, the Gladiator is very capable off-road but out on the tarmac, it isn't the smoothest riding or handling pickup.

The Gladiator and its standard engine punch out best-in-class power. The most impressive block is the Ford Ranger’s 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-4 motor doing the fastest 0-60 MPH in just over six seconds. While the hefty Gladiator does the same feat in a little over eight seconds. The 2022 Jeep Gladiator is a tough competitor to all the rivals, with the Honda Ridgeline being the nearest rival in terms of power and torque.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Fuel Economy

7.0/10

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator carries forward the same engine as last year so we expect the EPA ratings of the 2021 Jeep Gladiator to continue this year too. The Gladiator when had with the manual gearbox returns 16 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highways While when had with the automatic gearbox it returns 17 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway. This Jeep pickup gets a 22-gallon fuel tank that delivers the practical range to go over long off-roading sessions or haul loads through inter-state travels.

If the economy is the priority while buying a new pick-up, then the Ford Ranger delivers impressive figures along with balanced power and performance. The other rivals are not far, yet the Jeep Gladiator comes in the last spot in terms of economy.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Interior

9.0/10

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator isn't expected to get any significant changes to the rugged interior styling. The Gladiator will carry over the same subtle styling along with great functionality and convenience. The interiors will feature sturdy and build to last materials used and at the same time offer, impeccable creature comforts to match leading rivals. The cabin is spacious and roomy, and one can easily remove the door and roof panels to have an open-air cabin experience.

 2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab dashboard

The infotainment system will remain unchanged, which means it will feature a 5-inch screen as standard, which gets upgraded to an 8.4-inch screen with UConnect 4C on the Overland and above trims. The standard infotainment is a pretty basic unit while the 8.4-inch unit is the best in the segment. With easy to navigate menu and intuitive interface. The UConnect 4C unit comes with navigation and also features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, SiriusXM, and more.

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator being based on a proper SUV has the most spacious and roomy cabin among all the pickup trucks here. The closest to it in terms of space is the Honda Ridgeline followed by the Ford Ranger. As for the cargo space in the bed, the Ford Ranger offers the best 43.3 cubic feet followed by the Gladiator offering 35.5 cubic feet of cargo volume.

 2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab Cargo Bed

2022 Jeep Gladiator Exterior

9.0/10

The Jeep Gladiator was introduced as a fresh design that instantly grabbed the spotlight. The 2022 Jeep Gladiator will retain the same rough and rugged styling which is majorly inspired by the Wrangler sibling. The front will feature the same round headlights and the iconic 7-slot grille, muscular front fenders, and burly front bumper. The side stance will reflect the Wrangler stance with an extra cargo bed stuck to the rear.

 2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab 

Like the Wrangler, the 2022 Jeep Gladiator will also allow the buyers to remove the door and roof panels as well as fold down the front windshield. The tailgate has a big “Jeep” brand emblem with big rear bumpers and integrated footsteps. We are expecting Jeep to introduce more options to personalize the Gladiator.

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator will retain its robust and aggressive styling and the buyers that’d be looking for the Wrangler resemblance will be able to enjoy the added versatility of hauling loads. As the table shows, the Gladiator offers the best ground clearance and a class-leading wheelbase, but it’s also the heftiest in the lot.

Exterior Features:

  • Convertible Hardtop & Softtop
  • 33-inch Falken all-terrain tires
  • High Strength Steel Frame
  • DANA 44 Solid Axles
  • Heated and power side mirrors
  • Power Retractable Running Boards 
  • LED headlights and taillights

2022 Jeep Gladiator Safety

9.0/10

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator hasn’t been announced with any addition to the safety feature, and it will remain unchanged as the previous model year. It will also carry over the same platform and chassis as the 2021 model. Although the same hasn't been fully crash-tested by NHTSA while IIHS hasn't tested it at all. The 2021 Gladiator scored a 4 out of 5 stars rating in the frontal crash test and a 3 out of 5 stars rating in the rollover mitigation test of NHTSA. The same ratings are expected for the 2022 Jeep Gladiator.

Safety Features:

  • Automated emergency braking
  • Blind-spot monitoring system
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Forward collision warning with active braking
  • Rear cross-path detection
  • Park-sense rear park assist
  • Parkview rear backup camera
  • Trailer sway control system

2022 Jeep Gladiator Competition

7.0/10

2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab vs 2021 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator offers outstanding power and performance and is reputed for being rugged and impressive on beaten tracks. But the Toyota Tacoma is no different in capabilities and prowess but it's still underwhelming in comparison to the Gladiator. The Tacoma with a V6 is quicker than the Gladiator (Tacoma being significantly lighter than the Gladiator).

2021 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab

The interiors of the Jeep pickup are more spacious and roomy, especially in the rear. The Gladiator is rough and rugged while the Tacoma can be equipped with extensive soft-touch materials for more premium attire.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab vs 2021 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab

The 2022 Honda Ridgeline is competitively priced and offers neck-to-neck rivalry in power aspects. But the buyers will find the Ridgeline more upscale and comfortable, while the Gladiator attracts eyes with its clean yet rugged styling.

2021 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab

The Ridgeline has less ground clearance, so it won’t permit tackling steep boulders or rocky tracks as easily as the Gladiator.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Crew Cab vs 2021 Ford Ranger SuperCrew

The Ford Ranger and its puny turbo engine block offer challenging figures, and it’s one of the quickest pickups in the segment. The Ranger is also empowered with the better towing capacity to the Gladiator and offers impeccable fuel economy.

2021 Ford Ranger SuperCrew

But the Ranger fails to be as airy as the Gladiator is, but the shorter wheelbase makes it more maneuverable than the Jeep’s rugged pickup. Overall the Ranger is a well-rounded pickup which can be had as a daily driver too.

2022 Jeep Gladiator Final Verdict

7.5/10

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator is an exclusive choice in the pickup segment, for its unmatched power, generous cabin space, and Jeep pedigree. No other rival in the segment can boast of a better off-roading capability, at least in its base form. But Gladiator isn't without its set of cons and the first one being its brawny engine offering the least gas mileage which keeps its running costs on the higher side. Also, there is only one body and cab configuration, which means a lesser suite of features and options. So one might need to sort out the priorities and make sure the pros weigh more than the cons before going for the 2022 Jeep Gladiator.

Pros - Tough industrial design Great off road ability.

Cons - Water leaks around the door Only a 5ft bed Underpowered.

Has great presence I wouldn’t say the Gladiator has a great practicality compared to other trucks as the Jeep only comes with a 5ft bed for storage and that’s even shorter than most humans. The Gladiator has the genes from the Wrangler and has great off road skills but its seriously underpowered and a supercharger would do wonders to this truck. I’ve also had water slip through the driver door but it was only drops and was was fixed by the professionals at Jeep. I had mentioned about the water leak near the door whi...
