The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Set To Slay All Challengers
The 2020 JEEP Gladiator being the brand’s first truck in over 25 years could be considered a late start in the super-hot pickup segment. However the surge in pickup truck demand is certainly linked to the rough and ready adventure lifestyle that JEEP pioneered in the consumer car market 50 years ago.
The JEEP Gladiator, in 4 trims from $33,545 to $43,545, borrows the best engineering for dual purpose on-road and off-road duties from the Wrangler and its cousin the vaunted RAM 1500 pickup. Aside from some bearable wind noise from the upright cabin design, the interior is very civilized for regular driving with stylish stitched sport seating, and the latest Apple Car Play and Android Auto connectivity ready infotainment center with a choice of 5”, 7” or 8.4” screens
Vanquishing steep grade, rock strewn, mudslide conditions, dramatically showcases JEEP Gladiator prowess. Powered by a 285 horsepower, 260 lb feet of torque 3.8 liter V6 Pentastar engine with a standard 6-speed manual transmission, the Gladiator has plenty of muscle on the road and incredible low-gear crawling skills. Notably the 8-speed automatic trans is a $2,000 option.
