Finally, Jeep finished their masterpiece in the cars pickup section, The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator has been introduced to the public at the 2018 LA Auto Show. This Sports SUV brings more comfort features inside that will make you feel like a high-class limo when you rock the road. So let take look more detail to The Next 2020 Jeep Gladiator Edition.
The new Gladiator is built on an all-new lightweight, high-strength steel frame and rides on a 19.4 inches longer wheelbase compared to Jeep Wrangler 4-door. At the exterior, the Gladiator looks like every other Jeep, with an oversized keystone-shaped grille, round headlamps, and square tail lamps, both featuring LED technology.
The Gladiator in crew cab configuration comes with a five-foot steel bed with the covered external power source and strongly integrated tie-downs. Jeep plans to make the pickup the only true open-air 4×4 on the market, offered in one soft-top and two hard-top configurations, complete with a fold-down windshield. The high-strength aluminum doors, the removable top, and the windshield can be configured by buyers in dozens of different ways to create their own unique machines.
Technology & Interior Styling
Inside, the Gladiator is much the same as the Wrangler in most respects—even down to rear-seat legroom. The rear bench flips upward to reveal small storage bins and its backrest can fold flat as well. The Gladiator’s standard fabric top flops back for open-air driving. An optional hardtop made from composite materials features removable panels or can be pulled off entirely. Like the Wrangler, the Gladiator’s doors are removable with an included Torx screwdriver and its windshield can be folded flat. All Gladiators can be carefully hosed out after a day of mud-plugging.
Gladiator Sports are basic with roll-up windows and a 5.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment, although air conditioning is (finally) standard fare. Options include a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, power windows, heated seats, alloy wheels, and an Alpine audio system. A removable Bluetooth speaker is optional, too.

Much of those features are standard on the Gladiator Overland, a trim level that’s new to Jeep’s body-on-frame off-roaders. The Overland isn’t exactly lavish, but it can be optioned up with a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warnings, leather upholstery, and a body-color three-piece removable hardtop.
The 2020 Gladiator will be powered with two engines, one of which will be available from the start at the other will join the range later in 2020. The already available engine is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that develops 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque when paired with the standard six-speed manual transmission. An optional eight-speed automatic transmission is available.
From 2020, the Gladiator will also get a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V8 paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This unit will develop 260 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque. The pickup comes to the market with a best-in-class towing capacity of up to 7,650 pounds and a towing capacity of up to 1,600 pounds.
Off-roading at its finest is made possible through the use of Command-Trac and Rock-Trac 4×4 systems, Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited-slip differential, electronic sway-bar disconnect, and 33-inch off-road tires. The suspension has been tuned to handle both loads and extreme off-roading.
