Texas is the nation’s largest truck market, and many automakers offer special editions in the state to attract potential buyers. Ram did. Nissan did. Chevy too. And now Jeep is joining them with its 2021 Gladiator Texas Trail. It’s a special edition truck that adds a host of signs and visual clues related to the state of Lone Star. However, the upgrades do not include any performance improvements.
The Special Edition pickup comes with 17-inch black aluminum wheels wrapped in 32-inch muddy-terrain tires. It also comes with the selected model’s towing package. Other visual upgrades include a unique Texas Trail hood and tailgate decals that feature a nod to the Texas Declaration of Independence of 1836. Inside, black leather seats are embossed with the Texas graphic Trail. Standard pickup features include side steps, black hardtop, Technology Group package, and more.
The tech pack adds a 7.0-inch touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the brand’s latest Uconnect infotainment software. Buyers can get the truck with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 or the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. The diesel produces 260 horsepower (193 kilowatts) and 442 pound-feet (599 Newton-meters) of torque, while the gasoline engine produces 285 horsepower (212 kW) and 260 pound-feet (352 Nm) of curvy material. It is also available in 10 exterior colors.
The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Texas Trail is now available at Texas Dealers. It has a starting price of $ 40,435, which is a bit more than the starting price of the regular Sport S trim which starts at $ 38,400 (prices exclude the destination charge of $ 1,495). The truck arrives along two Texas trails added to the brand’s Jeep Badge of Honor mobile app that lets off-road enthusiasts play the wrestling trails by earning badges. The two trails are the Black Gap 4×4 in Big Bend State Park and the Northwest OVH Park in Bridgeport, Texas.
