Just last week, a new Jeep Gladiator was unveiled – but not from Jeep.
This badass Gladiator 6×6 was instead designed and built by Next Level, a boutique car brand that has plans for other 6×6 rigs like the Ford Bronco and the Ford F-150.
So is this a legit 6×6 or just a show truck that’s an empty shell? Let’s find out!
This Jeep Gladiator 6×6 is a True Off-Road Rig
Yes, this is a legit 6×6…
It has full-time 4WD and on-demand 6WD when needed. You can select from multiple engine options to power this thing, from a 4-cylinder that puts out 270-horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque up to a 3.0-liter turbodiesel that gives you 375-horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. There is also a 285-horsepower V6 option that puts out 260 pound-feet of torque.
Along with various engines (and two extra wheels), Next Level has outfitted this unique Jeep with lots of other goodies:
- 20-inch wheels
- 37-inch tires
- Fox suspension
- 4.88 gear ratio
- Optional steel front bumper (with winch)
- Retractable step sides
- Optional roof-mounted LED light bar
And, of course, to accommodate the extra axle, this Gladiator 6×6 has an eight-foot bed.
What About the Interior?
While the outside of the Jeep Gladiator 6×6 screams “doomsday truck,” the inside is anything but.
Not only do you get hand-stitched Napa leather seats with suede inserts and bolsters to give you the support you need on tough roads, but you can also choose from multiple styles and colors of leather.
There’s also Next Level badging to highlight that this is a very special Gladiator as well as typical features you’d expect like a touchscreen infotainment center and a digital compass.
Where Can I Get a Jeep Gladiator 6×6?
This bad boy is available for a starting price of $132,000 directly from Next Level, or you can pick one up at select Jeep dealerships in California, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina.
The price tag is hefty, to be sure – about $100,000 more than the base Gladiator. But from the looks of it, Next Level has definitely taken this thing to, well, the next level!
Would you dole out $132,000 for a Jeep Gladiator 6×6?
