2021 Jeep Gladiator Blazes New Trails in Texas

Liz Kim | Apr 13, 2021

Texans are not shy about boasting that the Lone Star state is their home. In order to appeal to the proud citizens of the second biggest and second most populous state in America and to commemorate the biggest truck market in the country, Jeep announces the 2021 Gladiator Texas Trail special edition.

Based on the Sport S trim level, the new 2021 Jeep Gladiator Texas Trail adds side steps, a Trailer Tow Group with a Class IV trailer hitch, a black hardtop, leather upholstery, a Technology Group, and a Convenience Group. It’s got plenty of equipment for the price. 

Under the hood, the Gladiator Texas Trail offers a choice between a 260-horsepower 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 or a 285-hp 3.6-liter gasoline V6. Riding on 17-inch aluminum wheels with 32-inch mud-terrain tires, the Gladiator Texas Trail is ready for regular use of the part-time 4-wheel-drive system with its 2-speed transfer case. The truck’s low-range gearing measures 2.72:1. 

Jeep’s Badge of Honor program allows off-road trekkers who drive specific trails in their Jeeps to earn badges through its owner app. Jeep says it recently added two Texas trails, making it easier for Gladiator Texas Trail owners to earn badges in their home state. The new trails include the Black Gap 4x4 trail in Big Bend National Park and the Northwest OHV Park in Bridgeport, Texas.

Jeep applies this Gladiator’s glaringly apparent Texas Trail logos to the hood and on the back of the truck and embosses them on the black leather upholstery inside the cab. Additionally, Jeep showcases the year 1836 in different places, when Texas’ Declaration of Independence asserted itself as the Republic of Texas. 

Gladiator Texas Trail colors include black, white, Snazzberry, Granite Crystal, Sarge, Nacho, Hydro Blue, Firecracker Red, Billet Silver, and Sting-Gray. This midsize pickup truck is available now, sold exclusively in Texas dealerships. The starting price is $41,930 (including a $1,495 destination charge).
