What is the Jeep Gladiator?

January 31st, 2019 by

2020 Jeep Gladiator
The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator combines the legendary off-road capabilities of the classic Jeep Wrangler with the towing power and capacities of a mid-size pickup. Drivers who choose the Gladiator will enjoy best-in-class towing power, best-in-class payload capacity, and the ability to depart from the beaten path whenever the mood takes hold. It’s the only open-air pickup truck in the industry, and drivers from Midwest City to Del City have been quick to take notice.

A New Jeep Truck Arrives at Last

The original Jeep Gladiator truck ran from 1962 to 1988, and for 2020, and Jeep has revived the name for a new truck platform based on the Wrangler. There was also the Jeep Comanche, which was in production from 1986 to 1992 — but since that model went into retirement, there hasn’t been a Jeep pickup available to drivers in the Chandler region!

Although the main body and drivetrain of this pickup was developed from the Wrangler, the Gladiator truck adds a 5-foot truck bed, an available roll-up tonneau cover, an available 115-volt in-bed power outlet, and a three-position tailgate for easy cargo loading. Drivers will have four Jeep Gladiator trim levels to choose from:

  • Sport
  • Sport S
  • Overland
  • Rubicon

2020 Jeep Gladiator Towing Capacity

As we noted above, the Jeep Wrangler offers best-in-class towing capacity and best-in-class payload ratings compared to other vehicles in the mid-size 4×4 crew cab segment. When properly equipped, the Gladiator’s capabilities distinguish it from all competitors:

  • Maximum Towing Capacity: 7,650 pounds
  • Maximum Payload Capacity: 1,600 pounds

2020 Jeep Gladiator Performance

The only 2020 Jeep Gladiator engine option that will be offered at launch is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 that can generate 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, drivers who plan to do a lot of heavy lifting should note that Jeep has plans to offer a 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine that will produce 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque.

No matter which you end up equipping in your Jeep Gladiator, you’ll enjoy Trail Rated® 4×4 Capability thanks to the following array of standard and available performance features:

  • Heavy-Duty Dana 44 Axles
  • High and Low Range 4×4 System
  • FOX Shocks
  • 17-inch tech silver aluminum wheels on Sport S
  • 33-inch all-terrain tires on Rubicon
  • Available Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning
  • Electronic Disconnecting Front Sway Bar
  • Tru-Lok Electronic Locking Front and Rear differentials
  • Exclusive TrailCam Off-Road Camera mounted on the Jeep Gladiator grille
  • High-Clearance Fender Flares offering 11.1 inches of ground clearance on Rubicon
