For a long time, we speculated about the name of jeep’s truck. Wrangler and Scrambler are two names we expected, Gladiator is what we got. It hasn’t been too much time and the first speculations about the new versions appeared. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules is a fan’s rendering based on the Rubicon trim, which managed to draw a lot of attention, even from TLF Trucks.
Definitely, Jeep will need an off-road truck to compete with Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. Well, the mid-size truck is still a pretty capable thanks to the EcoDiesel unit under the hood. The Hercules package would make it even meaner.
Leaking sources are confirming the FCA is looking to upgrade the offer with a performance version of Gladiator. Well, it didn’t take too long before fans created their model. On the other hand, the truckmaker is yet to deliver Ram Rebel TRX. Having this on the mind, we wouldn’t rush with the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules.
Under the hood of the standard truck is a Pentastar V6 engine, the same one the Wrangler is using. In the aftermarket, you can enhance the SUV with a V8 unit. That made the company consider the big powerplant for the Gladiator Hercules. One of the V8 mills the FCA is offering would do the job and make the truck the most capable model in the mid-size segment.
2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules Design
It is not hard to guess where fans found the inspiration for the Hercules pickup. It is the same truck as the Rubicon model. Well, the graphics are replaced with the new sign. Still, the official details are still missing. Well, the company is not coming out with any updates until chiefs give a green light to the performance truck. Well, it might not be called Hercules. The public already made a bad prediction with the name of the base pickup… so, this time, we will wait for an official announcement.
The renderings are showing what would fans like to see from the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules. Definitely, we can spot off-road accessories that will make a ride more interesting. There are all-terrain tires, hard rooftop, and skid plates. We are sure that the off-road truck is also getting special tuning of the drive system, including new suspension and shocks. A two-tone hood with scoops makes the Hercules more aggressive. Well, this concept doesn’t have to be the same as the production model, but it shows the direction where the FCA is heading.
When Will 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hercules Be Available?
The new truck is not confirmed yet. Still, the company needs an off-road unit to compete with other companies. Soon, Ford is going to bring the Raptor version of Ranger. That will make an impact on the market where Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and Chevy Colorado ZR2 are dominating in the last few years. If Jeep steps into the segment before the Blue Oval company, the Gladiator Hercules will have more space to prove itself.
