The Jeep brand has introduced the new 2021 Gladiator Texas Trail. Based on the Gladiator Sport S trim, the Texas Trail is launching exclusively for the state of Texas and features personalized content for a distinct appearance combined with legendary Jeep 4×4 capability.
“The Jeep brand recognizes that Texas and America’s southwest are the center of the truck universe,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President Jeep Brand North America. “Special editions allow us to connect with our passionate customers, and the Jeep Gladiator Texas Trail further broadens the appeal of the most capable Jeep pickup yet.”
The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Texas Trail also celebrates the addition of two Texas trails to the Jeep Badge of Honor program. The Jeep Badge of Honor mobile app allows off-road enthusiasts to conquer trails and earn trail badges for their Jeep vehicles. Texas is now home to two Badge of Honor trails, including Black Gap 4×4 trail in Big Bend National Park and Northwest OHV Park in Bridgeport, Texas.
The new Texas Trail marks the first time Jeep is offering a truck that pays homage to Texas. The Gladiator Texas Trail features 17-inch Mid-Gloss Black Aluminum wheels wrapped in 32-inch mud-terrain tires. These features, combined with the Jeep Command-Trac 4×4 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, enhance the Gladiator Texas Trail’s off-road capability, Jeep said.
The truck is outfitted with unique Texas Trail hood and tailgate decals that include the year 1836 as a nod to the Texas Declaration of Independence. The Sport S-based Gladiator Texas Trail also includes standard side steps, Trailer Tow Group, black hardtop, black leather seats embossed with the Texas Trail graphic and Technology Group with 7-inch radio and Convenience Group.
The Texas Trail edition is available with a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine, rated at 260 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque, or the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, rated at 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Gladiator Texas Trail is available in 10 colors: black, white, Snazzberry, Granite Crystal, Sarge, Nacho, Hydro Blue, Firecracker Red, Billet Silver and Sting-Gray.
