Engine Specs of the 2021 Jeep Gladiator EcoDiesel Engine

Within the press release, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator EcoDiesel specs were announced. Each model equipped with the 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel engine provided up to 260 horsepower and 442 ft-lbs. of torque. Available in the Sport, Overland, and Rubicon trims, the engine will have standard Engine Stop-Start technology. To combat the intense amount of torque, the model will be connected to a TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission which will be optimized for low RPM shifts you’ll have in both on- and off-road experiences.

What Will the Fuel Economy Estimates Be for the 2021 Jeep Gladiator EcoDiesel?

One bit of information that was not disclosed was the overall fuel economy estimates of the model. Despite this, 2021 Jeep Gladiator models with the EcoDiesel will receive the highest range on a single tank of fuel for any Gladiator in history. Numerous changes were made to the engine to make it both lighter and more efficient. If we look to the Wrangler for its EcoDiesel addition, the new Gladiator engine will receive a slightly significant boost. Its estimated fuel economy from the 2020 model was up to 17 City, 22 Highway MPG.
