The latter produces 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque from its 3.0-litre diesel V6. It is only available with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Right now, the Gladiator is available in Canada in three trim levels including Sport S, Overland and Rubicon. Pricing starts at $47,245 and the standard engine is a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6.
