Diving Into the Off-Road Jeep Gladiator With Ruge's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

Rhinebeck is the kind of place that has something for everyone, including people who are a little adventurous and need a vehicle like the Jeep Gladiator. This automaker has always been on the cutting edge of off-road driving and the features in the Gladiator show just that.

What to Expect From the Gladiator?

You never know what you are going to encounter once you leave the roads of Kingston and drive off into the unknown. The following are some reasons explorers should consider the Gladiator:

The Traction

One thing you can definitely count on when it comes to the Gladiator is traction. Off-roaders know that traction is important because it helps the vehicle keep pushing forward, no matter the road conditions. You will have no issue getting to Margaret Lewis Norrie State Park in a Jeep Gladiator.


It is hard to drive on a rocky road with a regular vehicle but the Gladiator was built for this.

Water Fording

Another thing some adventurers could face during an off-road situation is getting around water. With regular vehicles, it would be hard to access some bodies of water without getting stuck.

The Gladiator doesn't want you to get stuck but rather continue conquering so it added features to help you; for example, it comes with a high air intake that makes it hard for water to reach, provided the body of water is not too deep. The vehicle is also sealed against water and that should protect it from damage. Go ahead and get through those creeks or streams with your Gladiator.

Precision Steering

Driving through the unknown sometimes means dealing with obstacles that require precision steering. The Gladiator can give you that because it has been optimized in a number of ways; for example, the vehicle comes with a precision steering feature.

This little feature also makes driving down U.S. 9 in Rhinebeck much better, even if you are in a relatively large vehicle, and that's good news, too. It should also be pointed out that the Jeep Gladiator comes with wheelbases made to help you get around narrow gaps, rocks, or other tight spots on your way to Ferncliff Forest.

Road Control

Keeping all four wheels on the ground is always a challenge when it comes to off-road vehicles.

Thankfully, the Gladiator has a few systems in place to help keep your vehicle fully grounded, like the traction mentioned earlier and the high articulation system. You get a lot more control this way and it keeps you safe. You also get about 11.1 inches of ground clearance so that you can get through various terrains without damaging the underbody of the Gladiator.

Great Tech

The Gladiator comes with a few tech features you are going to love to have when you are driving off road. Yes, some of those features involve a little entertainment since you can connect smart devices to this vehicle.

No one should have an adventure without good off-road music and you probably have a great selection on your smart phone. The Gladiator gives you all of that and has a forward-facing TrailCam. The cam shows the image on your screen along with gridlines that can help you navigate the path a little more effectively.

The trail cam shows you what is in front of your wheels, which helps you make better decisions. Do not worry about your camera getting a little dirty because it comes with an integrated washer to keep images clear throughout your adventure.

The Jeep Gladiator is not only for off-road situations. It is an adaptable vehicle that can handle the roughness of the off-road adventure and the precision-driving required in the city. You can do it all in the Gladiator, but you should stop by for a test drive to see what the Gladiator has to offer you. Our dealership is conveniently located on U.S. 9 in Rhinebeck, just down the road from the Museum of Rhinebeck History.
