What is the Jeep Gladiator?

February 12th, 2019 by

2020 Jeep Gladiator
The new Jeep Gladiator is a midsize pickup truck based on the Jeep Wrangler. Needless to say, truck fans in the Rice Lake area have been thrilled with the news of this latest addition to the Jeep lineup, which we expect to arrive in the showroom here at Don Johnson Motors sometime in Spring of 2019. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator will be the only open-air pickup on the market, and will feature the superior off-road capability for which Jeep is famous. Learn more about what the exciting new Gladiator will have to offer, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

What Will the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Look Like?

This new Jeep truck will look a lot like the Jeep Wrangler. It will have the same iconic styling, spacious dimensions, and will feature a fold-down windshield and removable roof panels and doors. The rear window will also be removable, so you’ll be able to fully enjoy the open air when you hit the trail at Pipeline. The Gladiator also has a 5-foot truck bed with an ample number of tie-downs and a tailgate that can be locked halfway open, making it easier to carry longer items.

What Are the Jeep Gladiator Performance Specs?

Okay, the Gladiator will look rugged enough, but what kind of performance can you expect? We’re certain that you won’t be disappointed with the engine options and capabilities:

  • Standard Engine: 3.6L V6 with 285 hp and 26 lb-ft of torque.
  • Transmission: 6-speed manual, or 8-speed automatic.
  • Payload Capacity: Best-in-class 1,600 pounds.
  • Towing Capacity: Best-in-class 7,650 pounds.
  • Available Engine: A 3.0L diesel 6-cylinder with 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque will be offered later in 2020.

In addition, every 2020 Jeep Gladiator configuration will feature Jeep’s legendary 4×4 capability.
