News Rumours About a Jeep Gladiator "Hercules" Sound Good To Us

Rumours About a Jeep Gladiator “Hercules” Sound Good To Us

FCA’s recent recipe for hype has involved dialing attitudes to 11 or higher. The hot new Wrangler and fantastic Gladiator might be next!

It would seem as though Jeep is working on a pumped-up version of its recently released Gladiator pickup. For those not aware, Jeep has finally decided to take a Wrangler Unlimited, stretch it and put a pickup bed out back.

Much like building the Gladiator, creating a “Hercules” version makes too much sense for FCA to pass it up. The Mopar/Jeep/Wrangler parts catalogue is loaded with parts that will be ordered by Gladiator owners anyhow so why not create a juiced-up version in house? All it needs are a lift kit, beadlock wheels, larger tires, steel bumpers, skid plates, and a few other items and the job is done.

The only real question is what will Jeep shoehorn under the hood? We pray that FCA will endow this vehicle with a HEMI, if mostly for noise and Raptor-fighting power.
