The Jeep brand of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in Auburn Hills has introduced the Willys models for the 2021 Jeep Gladiator available on Sport and Sport S models.
The Gladiator Willys features a limited-slip rear differential, Rubicon cab rock rails and shocks, and 32-inch BFGoodrich KM2 mud terrain tires. These new features, combined with Jeep’s Command-Trac 4×4 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, creates a new appearance combined with Jeep’s off-roading capability.
“Building on the widely popular Wrangler Willys, we’re thrilled to announce the Willys model is joining the Gladiator lineup as another way for Jeep to connect with our customers,” says Jim Morrison, head of Jeep brand in North America. “Gladiator Willys models harken back to the original Jeep lineup while offering an aggressive look and additional increased capability.”
The new capabilities of the Gladiator Willys is accompanied by a rugged appearance. The company says the models are the most capable off-road Jeep truck ever. Some of the exterior design features include a Willys hood decal, heritage 4WD tailgate decal, black 17-inch aluminum wheels with gray pad print, and a gloss black sport grille.
They’re also equipped with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and a versatile cargo box, while the Sport S models include standard Technology Group with a 7-inch radio that offers connective services and Convenience Group.
All Gladiator models are trail rated with a badge indicating the vehicle is designed to perform in a variety of off-road conditions.
Pricing for the Gladiator Willys starts at $35,265, not including a $1,495 destination charge, and are available in eight colors. The new models are being featured in Jeep showrooms now and are also available for online ordering here.
