Jeep Gladiator MultiJet V6 engine the most powerful, all new
The 4 × 4 Jeep Gladiator pick-up is available in the set-up Overland and in the exclusive Launch Edition limited edition, all equipped with motorization MultiJet V6 3.0 liter 264 hp of power and 600 Nm of torque, a MultiJet Euro 6-D Final, the most powerful and performing in its category in Europe. This engine was designed and built in the Cento plant in Ferrara. It uses a low friction bearing turbo and is paired with a eight-speed automatic transmission also excellent on off-road tracks and for motorway speeds.
This diesel engine is a jewel loaded with technology:
- Water-cooled turbocharger with variable turbine geometry (VGT) and low friction bearings
- Redesigned cylinder head intake ducts that increase performance and reduce fuel consumption;
- Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system updated with a dual circuit system (low and high pressure). This new low pressure recirculation system draws the gases downstream of the diesel particulate filter, thus limiting the energy losses of the turbocharger and reducing fuel consumption;
- Compression ratio has been optimized from 16.5: 1 to 16.0: 1
- Redesigned diesel injectors on high pressure direct injection (29,000 psi / 2,000 bar)
- Lightweight, redesigned aluminum alloy pistons with thinner rings and a low-friction DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating on the piston pin and piston compression ring to reduce parasitic leaks;
- The NVH has been improved by moving the pin of the pistons by 0.3 mm with respect to the central axis;
- The bottom of the oil pan is made of two parts with a lightweight polymer / metal laminate material which further reduces NVH.
This 3.0 V6 MultiJet engine has double overhead camshafts (DOHC) with four valves per cylinder and a 60 degree angle between the cylinder banks. The monobloc is made by casting in ductile cast iron, a lighter material than the gray cast iron, but able to offer the necessary resistance to dampen vibrations. A compacted cast iron plate increases the rigidity of the block.
All-wheel drive, Jeep Gladiator transmission system
The new Gladiator uses “shift on the fly” technology that allows you to go up to 72 km / h from two-wheel drive (2WD) to four-wheel drive (4WD High). Under normal driving conditions, the Selec-Trac system provides for two-wheel drive (2WD) and transmission of 100% of the torque to the rear axle.
The traction system on the Jeep Gladiator features four driving modes (plus Neutral mode),
- 2H (High – two-wheel drive);
- 4H AUTO (High – four-wheel drive Full-Time Active On-Demand);
- 4H Part-Time (High – four-wheel drive Part-Time);
- N (Neutral);
- 4L (four-wheel drive with reduced gears).
