There were already some talks about Jeep possibly working on a Jeep Gladiator model that would come powered by a V8 engine and while Jeep has not confirmed anything yet, some spies now believe that the vehicle that they spotted getting testing out in the open could be it.
The prototype was spotted with a whole bunch of black plastic in front as well as around the engine compartment and they believe that the huge bulge in the hood could be hiding the rumored V8 engine.
It was noted that the vehicle could be running on a diesel engine based on the sticker and the wheels and package fitted on this prototype is not the same as what we saw on the standard Gladiator.
Of course, there is no way to be certain now but we do not that most automakers are choosing not to offer the V8 on their midsize truck so Jeep could be doing something right or completely wrong for the market. What do you think?
