The Upcoming 2020 Jeep Gladiator: Jeep's New Pickup Truck

Since the last Jeep pickup, the Jeep Comanche, ended its production in 1992, drivers have waited for the return of a new Jeep truck option. Coming in spring 2019, the wait comes to an end with the 2020 Jeep Gladiator - a modern reincarnation of the original Jeep Gladiator SJ pickup. Stylish, robust and equipped with the latest in Jeep engineering and technology, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator upholds a legacy of performance and craftsmanship with stylish ease.

The Latest Evolution of the Jeep Pickup Legacy

For years, Jeep enthusiasts have anxiously awaited the return of a Jeep pickup model. While the original Jeep Gladiator pickup spanned two and a half decades, from the 1960s to the 1980s, and the smaller Jeep Comanche was produced from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, since the latter's end of production in '92, drivers have been without a new Jeep pickup truck model. In spring of 2019, for the 2020 model year, Jeep drivers anxiously awaiting a new pickup model will finally have their wishes granted with the 2020 Jeep Gladiator.

Performance and Capability

While exact engine specifications have yet to be released, drivers can expect both the tried-and-true 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 (standard), available with either an eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission, and an 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission coming in 2020. Equipped with either a Command-Trac® or Rock-Trac® 4x4 system, the upcoming 2020 Jeep Gladiator stands poised to outstrip the competition - providing drivers from Tifton to Valdosta, Albany and beyond with the impeccable performance they seek.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator boasts a variety of best-in-class accolades, including unmatched crawl ratios and a segment-exclusive electronic sway-bar disconnect. For drivers looking to fully utilize their Jeep Gladiator's abilities, the new truck offers best-in-class towing and 4x4 payload with 7,650 pounds of towing capacity and 1,600 pounds of payload capacity. Further equipped with Tru-Lock® electric front and rear-axle lockers on select trims, the Jeep Gladiator confidently adventures off-road with confidence.

Interior Design

The upcoming Jeep Gladiator incorporates both utilitarian and luxury features for a uniquely versatile driving experience. Standing as the only vehicle in its class capable of being open-air with its removable top and doors, the Jeep Gladiator takes a page from its brother, the Jeep Wrangler, in creating a unique and exhilarating driving experience. With numerous rear seat configurations for improved storage capacity, including under-seat storage bins, drivers throughout Moultrie and Fitzgerald receive the ability to accommodate both passengers and any accompanying cargo with ease.

Technology

Available with a largest-in-class 8.4-inch touchscreen with the Uconnect® 4C NAV infotainment system, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator incorporates Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and even offers an industry-exclusive removable Bluetooth® wireless speaker - further integrating your Jeep Gladiator during your adventures. Available with leather-trimmed seats, the interior of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is as innovative as it is rugged, as comfortable as it is spacious.

Trims and Configurations

The Jeep Gladiator will feature four unique trim levels:

  • Sport
  • Sport S
  • Overland
  • Rubicon®
Typical of Jeep brand models, the Sport and Sport S trims are expected to provide straightforward equipment and capability, while the Overland bridges the gap between the more affordable and straightforward base trims, and the off-road optimized Rubicon® trim.
