Jeep Philippines adds another Gladiator variant to local lineup
After introducing the Sport and Rubicon trim levels of the Jeep Gladiator two years ago, Jeep Philippines (Auto Nation Group) proudly welcomed the third and most appointed member of the marque’s pickup family, the Overland.
This latest Jeep Gladiator variant still sports the familiar four-door, five-passenger pickup truck body, including design cues borrowed from the Wrangler JL. What sets it apart is the posher equipment it has, inside and out.
The front fascia of the Jeep Gladiator Overland has the same seven-slot grille, but bigger to increase airflow to the engine compartment for better cooling and platinum silver lining for better aesthetics. Top features include LED premium reflector headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, LED fog lamps, sidesteps, LED taillights, body-color fenders, and a hard top.
Like all Gladiators, the Overland comes with open-air configurations and multi-door options. Customers can order it with half doors or fully removable doors for a richer outdoor adventure. It also has a segment-exclusive fold-down windshield, a three-position tailgate, smart features like tie-down loops, an adjustable tonneau, and an available Trail Rail System and spray-in bedliner.
Getting in the cabin requires Jeep’s keyless Enter ‘n Go system. It has an 8.4-inch touchscreen monitor with eight speakers running on Jeep’s Uconnect system, dual-zone automatic temperature control, multi-function steering wheel, and available heated front leather bucket seats. It gets a leather dashboard, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, and multiple USB ports.
The power driving the Standard Full-Time Selec-Trac 4x4 System of the Jeep Gladiator Overland comes from a 3.6-liter V6 with 24 valves and variable valve timing. The 285 horsepower and 352 Nm of torque it makes go through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Safety features include Blind-Spot Monitoring, Rear-Cross Path Detection, ParkSense Rear Park Assist, ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera, and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, among others.
