Get ready for the return of the Jeep Gladiator truck!

Jeep fans tend to know their brand history, so even if you weren't around a few decades ago, you probably know about Jeep trucks, like the Jeep Gladiator. The Gladiator was in production from 1962-1988, and after a very long hiatus, it's coming out of the retirement! During the second quarter of this year, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup will start arriving at our dealership, and it's set to shakeup the midsize pickup segment.

Off-Road Chops

The Jeep Wrangler is the ultimate off-roader in the lineup, and that's good news for the Gladiator, as a lot of its underpinnings are based off the Jeep Wrangler; except for the truck bed and a few smaller details, the Gladiator is basically a Wrangler. For that reasons, you'll be able to take on some challenging trails in the Gladiator and easily go up against other midsize trucks and their off-road trims and leave them in the dust.

The Truck Bed

The 2020 Gladiator has a five-foot truck bed, and through our Mopar Parts and Accessories center you can further customize it with racks or a cargo management system. Style wise, we love the boxy and squared-off profile that gives this midsize truck a more rugged and militaristic look than any of its competitors.

Towing Performance

You might think that since the Gladiator is an off-roader that it won't be able to tow. Well, you thought wrong, and that's a good thing! Engineers made sure this truck was well-rounded, and with the 3.6L V6 engine you'll be able to tow up to 7,650 pounds and carry a payload of 1,600 pounds! Once the 2020 calendar year arrives, you can opt for a late-arrival EcoDiesel engine, and we'll be sure to divulge the specs once they're official.

Technology

One of the big changes the Wrangler went through was becoming more tech-savvy for the newest generation, so on the Gladiator you'll get those excellent Wrangler features. There are three different touchscreen sizes, the option to get Apple CarPlay™/Android Auto™, more advanced safety features to help with parking, driver assistance, and collision avoidance, and tech that makes off-roading easier.

If you're interested in taking home a 2020 Jeep Gladiator, don't be afraid to stop into our dealership before inventory arrives to learn more.
