One of America’s greatest and most revered off-roaders, the Willys Jeep, now serves as the inspiration for the 2021 Jeep Gladiator‘s “Willys Edition” trim spec.

Jim Morrison, head of Jeep Brand in North America, says, “Gladiator Willys models harken back to the original Jeep lineup while offering an aggressive look and additional increased capability.” What this means is that Gladiators based on the Sport S trim can now be upgraded to include special Willys capabilities, which include 32-inch BFGoodrich KM2 mud terrain tires, a new limited-slip differential, and rock rails and shocks that are borrowed from the off-road-spec Jeep Rubicon.

The Jeep Gladiator “Willys Edition” is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 285 HP and 260 lb-ft of torque, and is paired to a six-speed manual transmission as standard. New details such as a blacked-out grille, matching rims, and other black elements including the special-edition decals, make this Gladiator stand out among the rest.

Lastly, a host of optional extras including an upgraded 8.4-inch Uconnect system, adaptive cruise control, Jeep’s Active Safety Group, Cargo Management Group, Cold Weather Group with heated seats and steering wheel and the trailer-tow package are also available.

The Jeep Gladiator “Willys Edition” starts at $36,760 USD. Take a closer look at the model above, and head to your nearest Jeep showroom or to the Jeep website for more information.
