Jeep Gladiator pickup truck converted to camperAugust 13, 2020
Jeep has revealed a new prototype based on the Gladiator pickup truck.
Kemper acquired the name Gladiator Farout and, in fact, anticipates the replenishment of the engine line with a new engine – the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6. This unit will be offered for versions such as Sport, Overland and Rubicon from the 3rd quarter of this year.
The show car from the American company plays on the favorite theme of US carmakers – overlanding. The main part of the pickup truck is a nearly 5-meter tent for four people.
In the Gladiator salon it is worth noting the presence of a refrigerator, stove, several chairs and a table. Leather and flannel were used for the upholstery of the chairs. The prototype received accessories from the Jeep Performance Parts catalog, such as 17-inch wheels with off-road tires and a modified bumper from the Rubicon variation with a winch.
The Gladiator Farout is powered by a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 264-horsepower engine. In suburban mode, the car consumes 8.4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. Sales of pickup trucks with a similar engine will begin soon.
In addition, it was recently noted that the Jeep brand will release a completely new electric vehicle. According to assumptions, the new product in the brand’s lineup will be located one step lower than the Renegade model. The new model should debut by the end of 2022.
