Jeep® Gladiator Pickup Coming This Year
In the 1980s, the Jeep® Scrambler was a popular pickup built on the CJ platform. The Cherokee-based Comanche followed shortly after in the early ‘90s. Production ended for both of these models by 1992, but many Jeep® fans have been yearning for something similar ever since. The long wait is finally over with the announcement that the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator pickup will be arriving later this year.
Upgrade Your Adventures
“Unquestionably a truck and instantly recognizable as a Jeep, the all-new 2020 Gladiator is the ultimate vehicle for any outdoor adventure,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Jeep Brand, North America. “There is tremendous demand for this unique vehicle from our loyal Jeep customers and pickup truck buyers everywhere. Born from a rich and proud heritage of tough, dependable Jeep trucks, Gladiator combines rugged utility, versatility and functionality resulting in the most capable midsize truck ever.”
Straight to the Top
According to Jeep®, the Gladiator will be the most capable midsize truck ever built. The Gladiator will boast best-in-class max towing capacity at 7,650 pounds and best-in-class payload at 1,650 pounds. With its initial release, the Gladiator will only be available with a 285-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. Later in the model year, there will be a 3.0-liter diesel option.
Like every other major Jeep® product, the Gladiator will be available with a range of Mopar® products to improve its off-road capabilities and durability. Set to arrive in the second quarter of 2019, the Gladiator will be available in four trims: Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon.
