If you take a look at the 2020 Jeep Gladiator dead on, you might mistake it for a Jeep Wrangler. That mistake will become radically apparent as you move to the profile of Jeep’s first truck in years. Designers at Jeep have created a truck that truly speaks to the off-roading community. While trucks like the Chevrolet Colorado and Ford Ranger might do ok on the trails, you know the Jeep Gladiator would outdo them any time. This champion of off-road trucking starts at $33,545.*
The Perfect Ride For…
The functional adventurer. While your standard off-road vehicle may only shine on rocky mountain trails, the Jeep Gladiator finds as much function in everyday life as it does on the weekends. With towing capability, water fording, great suspension articulation, and technology to keep you safe and connected, the Jeep Gladiator is the answer to almost every question.
Drive and Handling
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is equipped with a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine that produces up to 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Translated, that means this truck is equipped with a powerful engine that won’t break the bank in terms of gas, but can still tow up to 7,650 lbs. when properly equipped without breaking a sweat. Available bed accessories like tie-down loops, spray-in bed liner, a 115-volt power outlet, and the Trail Rail™ System make it easy to pack the essentials and then some when you want to go camping in your favorite remote location.
The Jeep 4x4 System is intelligent enough to send power to the wheels with the most traction. Take on creeks and streams up to 30 inches deep, thanks to the high air intake and water sealing that keeps water out of the important parts of your vehicle. The suspension movement provides great articulation, which means obstacles are easier to cross. With 11.1 inches of ground clearance and steel skid plates, the Gladiator is prepared to go where no truck before it has ventured.
Uconnect® offers tons of options for staying connected. With Voice Command, you can control your infotainment system and answer your smartphone, without taking your eyes off the road, or your hands off the wheel. The available Uconnect 4C NAV features an 8.4-inch touchscreen, which can help you find points of interest, for those rare moments when you and your Gladiator are on the pavement. An available weatherproof Bluetooth® speaker can recharge while you drive and make sure the party doesn’t end when you get to your destination. With Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, you can use some of your favorite smartphone apps, seamlessly integrated with the Uconnect system. With the available SiriusXM Guardian™, you have remote access to your truck, allowing you to do things like lock the doors and start the engine, all from your phone.
While the Jeep Gladiator is incredibly capable and confident, Jeep thought it could still use some of the most innovative driver assistance features in the industry, to provide an extra level of safety. With the available Blind Spot Monitoring, sensors detect when there is a vehicle in your blind spot and will alert you of their presence. Available Adaptive cruise control with Full Stop has never made driving long distances so easy. Enjoy reduced fatigue and spend more time concentrating on the journey ahead, thanks to Jeep. Parking assistance comes in the form of the available ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System and ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera, which take the guesswork out of parking.
If the style and off-road capability of the Gladiator speak to you, but you’d prefer an SUV, the iconic Jeep Wrangler might be a better fit. For something a little more refined, take a look at the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This luxurious vehicle offers remarkable capability with added comfort and features for the everyday adventure.
