Every time a carmaker names its model with a huge name, we have big expectations. This model will have two huge words in its name, so you may presume how excited we are about this pickup truck. the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules is about to be a really hi-performance truck. It will come with upgrades in all aspects. We won’t just see a more powerful engine, but various other upgrades as well. The interesting thing is that this will be an upgrade of a model that already features impressive off-road performances, so you may presume how this model capable could be.

The new engine has been rumored, with plenty of power. However, we also expect to see a lot of novelties in terms of aesthetics. The new 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules should come with loads of exclusive styling details that will emphasize its capable character.

2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules Engine

One of the most interesting features about 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules should be its engine. The current model comes with a couple of quite capable units, but FCA wants to bring everything to the next level. Therefore, this may be a perfect occasion for a new turbo-six engine to debut. According to moparinsiders.com, the new truck will come with FCA’s brand-new turbocharged inline-six engine. The exact details are still unavailable, but the same source suggests a max output of around 525 horsepower, which sounds really impressive. This clearly indicates that Gladiator wants to challenge Raptor, in terms of off-road performance. This amount of power will be more than enough, but we count on upgrades in other aspects as well, particularly in terms of the chassis setup.

Mechanical Upgrades

For an off-roader, chassis modifications are even more important than a powerful engine. Therefore, we expect a lot from the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules. The new pickup truck is already pretty capable in all variants. Moreover, the Rubicon trim is already one of the best off-roaders on the market. It comes with loads of off-road upgrades. Some of the things that come to mind are front and rear locking differentials, a sway bar, rock rails, and a brush guard. It also comes with 33-inch tires and unique rims.

They will bring even more things to the table. Besides the aforementioned off-road goodies, we count on various chassis reinforcements, as well as on completely new suspension setup, with new components and even higher ground clearances. It’s not hard to conclude that 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules won’t compete with Tacoma TRD Pro and similar models, it will challenge the currently undisputed F-150 Raptor.

2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules Styling

Naturally, this version will come with loads of interesting styling details as well. The camouflage Gladiator has been spotted on the road and we believe that’s a new Hercules. The interesting thing about this mule is that it is completely camouflaged, which isn’t a quite common thing for a model that has been launched just a year ago. This clearly indicates that the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules is about to feature a lot of distinctive details, which will emphasize its off-road character.

Of course, we will see all those typical upgrades like more rugged front face, new fenders and similar things. Still, the most interesting detail about the test mule is that it wears a complete camouflage. That means we could easily see completely new sheet metal, maybe even with military-grade aluminum and similar heavy-duty materials.

One of the rare things that can be obviously noticed under the camouflage, is a bigger hood. A new engine may be the reason, or it may be just that the company wants to make this truck more muscular.

The new 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules should come with exclusive color schemes as well, but we also count on some interior upgrades. At this point, it’s hard to talk in details but we may presume upgrades in terms of new sports seats and new interior color schemes. It is possible to see some revisions on the dashboard, particularly in terms of new materials. Finally, count on a pretty exclusive list of standard equipment.

2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules Release Date and Price

According to most reports, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules will hit the market in the next year. When it comes to the price, it is hard to tell the exact sum at the moment. Some reports even suggest figures like 80.000 dollars or so.

Before the new Hercules, we will see another interesting novelty. A new, diesel version is about to come for the  2020 model year. It will feature a 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel with around 240 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, which promises some pretty amazing performances, particularly in terms of towing and hauling.
