2020 Jeep Gladiator Review Sandy

What to Expect in the Upcoming 2020 Jeep Gladiator

A new Jeep pickup truck has been rumored ever since the Jeep Comanche was discontinued back in 1992. But now it's finally happening--a new Jeep pickup truck based off of the Jeep Wrangler will arrive this spring.

The new mid-size pickup truck will be known as the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Unlike previous Jeep trucks like the Comanche and the Scrambler, this latest model will offer extremely versatile class-leading pickup truck capabilities, as well as the expected Jeep off-road abilities. This hardy new pickup is set to be the vehicle that can handle everything from family life to service calls to wilderness excursions.

Jeep Performance

The new Jeep Gladiator comes equipped with the time-tested and trusted Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine, which offers up 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Jeep's diesel engine may join the Jeep Gladiator options list in the future as well. The Pentastar is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission, offering a powerful performance both on pavement and off.

Of course, the Gladiator offers iconic Jeep four-wheel-drive performance with two established 4x4 systems: The Command-Trac 4x4 system in the Jeep Gladiator Sport, Sport S, and Overland, and the Jeep Rock-Trac 4x4 system on the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. Jeep Gladiator Rubicon models are further specialized for off-road use with an upgraded suspension, improved off-road shocks, all-terrain tires, Tru-Lok differentials, and other 4x4 equipment.

Jeep Capability

The Jeep Gladiator doesn't just blend off-road ability and midsize pickup versatility, it excels in both. Towing is the top of its class with up to 7,650 pounds of towing strength, and payload strength is right there next to it with a best-in-class rating of 1,600 pounds. The Trail Rated Gladiator boasts true off-road ability with 30 inches' water fording depth, a 43.6-degree approach angle, a 20.3-degree breakover angle, and a 26-degree departure angle. You'll get a massive 11.1-inch ground clearance as well, so roads are totally optional.

Jeep Construction

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is inspired by the new Wrangler Unlimited, sharing many of its iconic Jeep SUV features and much of its styling. The Gladiator is on an extended wheelbase for improved utility but measures only 19.4 inches longer than the Wrangler Unlimited to preserve maximum maneuverability.

The Gladiator stays true to the Jeep look and feel with removable soft and hard tops, a folding windshield, and easily removable doors. The five-foot long truck bed gives you 35.5 cubic feet of cargo room to work with, offering a good amount of space for bikes, a quad, tools, gear, and materials.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is available in Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon configurations with a wide range of vibrant color choices, including Billet Silver, Black, Bright White, Firecracker Red, Gator Green, Gobi Tan, Granite Gray, Hydro Blue, Punk'n Orange, and Sting-Gray.

Jeep Cab Equipment

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator's cab is fitted with a wide range of features modern drivers demand, like an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite navigation system, surround sound speakers, power heated seats, and Bluetooth connectivity.

Jeep Safety

Unlike many utility and off-road vehicles out there, the Jeep Gladiator has a focus on safety features. The 4x4 offers dozens and dozens of advanced safety technologies that keep you safe and secure on the road and on the trail, including Blind-Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, and multiple camera systems.
