The base cost of the new item will be 132 thousand dollars in the US.
California-based Next Level has unveiled its version of the Jeep Gladiator six-wheeled pickup truck. The new Next Level Jeep Gladiator 6×6 retains the design of the production model, while the pickup adds large wheels with an outer diameter of 37 inches and electric retractable footpegs. In addition, the developers have extended the cargo compartment of the vehicle from 1.5 to 2.4 meters to accommodate the third axle.
By default, the Next Level Jeep Gladiator 6×6 pickup has a 6×4 wheel arrangement, and an additional third axle is included in the work only in the most extreme conditions, when traction is needed on all 6 wheels. The gear ratio of the main pairs was increased to 4.88 instead of 4.1 for the factory version of the Rubicon and 3.73 for the standard Gladiator. The track was widened, the ground clearance was increased, and instead of the standard shock absorbers, Fox components were installed, which are designed for increased loads.
It is noted that Next Level offers a three-axle Jeep Gladiator 6×6 pickup with three engines to choose from, while the original model has only two. You can choose the 2.0 petrol turbo four (274 hp, 393 Nm), which is available in the Jeep Wrangler SUV, but not available for the Gladiator. There is also a naturally aspirated V6 3.6 engine (289 hp, 353 Nm) and a forced V6 3.0 turbodiesel, which develops 380 hp. and 637 Nm of torque.
The three-axle version of the Next Level Jeep Gladiator 6×6 was priced at a minimum of $ 132,000, which includes the upholstery in nappa leather. Recall that a standard Jeep Gladiator, even with maximum equipment, costs no more than $ 60,000 in the United States.
