Don’t even try to tell us you aren’t excited about this. The much-anticipated and highly talked about (we’re talking years in the works) 2020 Jeep® Gladiator is finally becoming a reality. In fact, the Los Angeles Auto Show, which is going on now, revealed the all-new Jeep Gladiator to the masses.
Essentially, the Jeep Gladiator is a Jeep Wrangler from the rear seats forward. Plus, it offers all the adventurous capability you’ve come to love from Jeep SUVs. It features both Command-Trac and Rock-Trac as available 4×4 systems that let you take it wherever your heart desires. A soft-top and hard-top are available options, along with a fold-down windshield.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is available in four trim levels: Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon. It comes equipped with either a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine that pumps out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard, with an eight-speed automatic transmission as an available option. In 2020, it’s set to debut a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 as a second engine option, which generates 220 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque.
In terms of capability, this new Jeep truck renders a maximum 7,650-lb towing capacity and a maximum 1,600-lb payload capacity. Both of which, by the way, are best-in-class ratings.
