The 2020 Jeep Gladiator: A Rising Champion Seeks to Win the Crowd's Approval

"I was the best because the crowd loved me. Win the crowd and you will win your freedom" Those words were first coined in the 2000 epic film Gladiator and were once again repeated when the 2020 Gladiator debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Much like Russel Crowe's character Maximus in the film, the new Jeep Gladiator works to set itself apart from the others and dominate the competition of midsize trucks on the market today. While this new midsize pickup has yet to hit the streets fully, it is clear to see that the new jeep Gladiator does an exceptional job of standing out, thanks to its striking and unique look, its versatility, its best-in-class towing capacity, and the adventurous experience it provides. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator will soon become readily available and promises to deliver an adventure like no other! This midsize pickup will come available in four different trim levels:

  • Sport
  • Sport S
  • Overland
  • Rubicon

Feel the Charge of the Engine

In terms of powertrain, the Jeep Wrangler aims to be a real crowd-pleaser and is expected to deliver the best payload and towing capacity of any midsize truck of its class, with 7,650 pounds of towing and 1,600 pounds of maximum carrying. These outstanding performances are attributable to the standard Pentastar V6 engine under the hood, which delivers 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of engine torque. The Pentastar engine also features Engine Start-Stop technology to help save fuel in the long-term by capping the excess fuel that is often wasted when the truck is left idle. If you enjoy the feel and performance that diesel engines command, then you might not be disappointed come 2020 when another engine is released for this truck: a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 model delivering 260-horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque.

The engine typically comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission, but this truck will also come available with an eight-speed automatic transmission with Selec-Speed Control. If you are familiar with Jeep SUV models, then you will recognize this extra clutch handle, which maximizes off-roading performance without requiring throttle or brake input, instead allowing the driver to concentrate on steering.

Standing Out from the Competition

One of the most distinct differences that the 2020 Jeep Gladiator has to offer over its contemporaries is its unique style, which combines elements of the Jeep Wrangler and is the only open-air midsize pickup truck on the market currently. The main cabin of the Gladiator is modeled after the Wrangler and features your choice of either hard top or soft top roof material, both are simple and easy to collapse to help you feel the wind in your hair as you drive. If you wish to enjoy the ultimate open-air experience, as so many Wrangler drivers enjoy daily, the doors and front windshield are detachable as well. All trims of the Gladiator feature lightweight aluminum wheels and durable off-roading tires, to help you glide through terrains with the greatest of ease. In fact, the truck itself is made from similar aluminum materials, making it more lightweight, agile, and even more fuel efficient than many of its midsize truck contemporaries.

The Jeep Gladiator is yours to enjoy in one of many different exterior colors: Gobi, Punk'n, Bright White, Fire Cracker Red, Black, Sting-Gray, Hydro Blue, Gator, Billet Silver, and Granite Crystal.

Take to the Trails and Find Your Adventure!

The robust powertrain and frame of the Jeep Gladiator are only the first parts of what makes this midsize pickup truck such a dependable choice for most terrains, the other part comes from its standard 4X4 four-wheel drive systems. The Command-Trac 4X4 system lowers crawl ration to help maximize adaptability on a variety of surfaces, while the Rock-Trac 4X4 system offers locking differentials to help ensure the wheels on either axle spin together to maximize their potential regardless of their level of traction. The Gladiator will also come available with an Electronic Disconnecting Front Sway Bar, controllable from right behind the wheel, enabling you to let the front wheels drop further to improve the adaptability of the suspension. If you are driving through a particularly rocky ravine, you will now the difference that these 4X4 systems can make over conventional front-wheel or even all-wheel drive models.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator allows you to successfully ford streams up to 30 inches deep with a ground clearance of 11.1 inches, making this midsize truck one of the more towering choices among modern-day pickup trucks.

Dependable Safety Through Dependable Technology!

Sometimes you might want to put the adventures on hold for a bit to head to work or just head out for a night on the town. Well, the Jeep Gladiator is one truck that can be enjoyed in so many different settings and offers over 80 available safety features to help keep you and your passengers well-protected. Many trims even offer some helpful driver-assist technologies, utilizing special cameras and sensors to help give you a clear view of the pathways ahead. Available active safety features include:

  • Blind-Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Cross Path Detection
  • ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic gridlines (standard)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

The Gladiator is also the first of its class to introduce a forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera, giving you the most enhanced line of sight on the ground in front of you.

Information and Entertainment at Your Fingertips

Looking to get some updates on new traffic patterns? Want to crank up the bass in your truck? Maybe you just want to listen to your favorite talk radio host on your daily commute? Well, all of these and so much more are possible in the new Uconnect infotainment system which comes available as the Uconnect 7.0 or Uconnect 8.4NAV. Both of these infotainment systems offer Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, allowing you to integrate your smartphone in easily and access your applications through the standard touchscreen.

"Are You Not Entertained?"

In the movie Gladiator, after being told he must win the crowd, Russel Crowe's character Maximus handily bests his opponent in combat, then turns to the audience and defiantly asks them "Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?" Jeep asks a similar question to its customers in the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, though it is pretty clear that you will find much entertainment and excitement to be had in this returning champion to the midsize pickup truck lineup. Stay tuned for the upcoming release of the all-new Jeep Gladiator
