The wait is over. After years of hyping up their reintroduction into the midsize truck segment, Jeep has finally officially announced the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. This is a truck that has been a long time coming, and the end product is absolutely worth it. The Gladiator is the perfect combination of the unmatched rugged utility of a Jeep, with clever functionality and the truck bed of your dreams. Jeep understands why people keep coming back to their brand, and to honor that legacy, they've created the Gladiator to mirror the very best of their model lineup, with all of the innovation that you need. Not only will you be having off-roading fun in the Gladiator, but you'll also get best-in-class towing, the most reliable passenger safety, and on-the-road driving dynamics that will make you question if you're even in an off-roading king. There are no limits for the 2020 Gladiator, and we can't wait to share more about this highly-capable midsize pickup truck!

Can you tell me about the premium technology and features that come with the Gladiator?

With all of the hype that was built around the Gladiator, Jeep only put the very best materials and technology into this truck. The interior can be described as versatile, authentic, intuitive, and comfortable. This goes along with a precise kind of craftsmanship, which means every part of the Gladiator was purposefully designed and nothing was overlooked. The center console alone is the picture of functionality as it houses the parking brake, transfer case, and gear shift selection. Even the infotainment screen in the center console manages to stand out with construction methods that can only be described as genuine. As for the seating, both cloth and leather-contoured seats are available, which feature lumbar support and accent stitching. Added comfort comes in the form of optional features like heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Looping back around, there are two touchscreens available with the Uconnect system. These touchscreen options include a 7-inch or an 8.4-inch, along with the 5-inch touchscreen which comes standard on the Sport model. If you opt for the Rubicon model, then you'll be getting an off-road camera that faces forward, which makes it easier to see the trail. Multimedia is taken care of with the Gladiator, as there are two USB ports and even a USB-C port in the front. 

 

Can you tell me what powertrain options come with this truck?

The Jeep Gladiator is a truck that demands a powerful engine, and it most definitely gets it. The standard engine in this pickup is the Pentastar 3.6-liter V6, which can create up to 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This system works with Engine Stop-Start and is engineered to focus on low-end torque with a broad torque band. This kind of torque is essential for anyone looking to have some extreme off-roading fun. The standard transmission is a 6-speed manual, but you can instead opt for an 8-speed automatic. There is another available engine, which you can start to find in 2020. This engine is an EcoDiesel 3.0-liter V6, which can pump out 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission comes standard with this engine and is perfectly designed to deal with the increase in torque output. 

What kind of off-roading capabilities does the Gladiator have?

One of the biggest draws that always brings people to a Jeep vehicle is the off-roading capabilities. No other automotive company is as synonymous with off-roading as Jeep, and because of this, the Gladiator continues that tradition. Two advanced 4x4 systems are available with the Gladiator, starting with the Command-Trac 4x4 system. This system is standard on the Sport and Overland models, and comes with a 2-speed transfer case with 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, and 3rd-generation Dana rear and front axles with a 3.73 rear axle ratio. A higher model, like the Rubicon, comes with a Rock-Trac 4x4 system. This system comes with Tru-Lok locking differentials, a 4.10 front and rear axle ratio, and 3rd-generation Dana 44 front and rear axles. Both of these systems offer full-time torque management, which helps to further enable optimal grip whenever you're in low-traction conditions. The Sport, Overland, and Rubicon have all been given a Trail Rated badge. This means that they include features like skid plates, front and rear tow hooks, a towing capacity of up to 7,650 pounds, up to 30 inches of water fording, and either a Command-Trac or Rock-Trac 4x4 system.

 

This is the midsize pickup truck that we have all been waiting for--and it absolutely delivers. Jeep understands their consumer base, and with off-roading capabilities, impressive amounts of power, and the latest in premium features, there is nothing the 2020 Jeep Gladiator cannot accomplish. The entire family will love this truck, and you'll love it for its iconic Jeep styling. As we wait for the Gladiator to head to dealerships, be sure to check out our new Jeep inventory!
