Go Far and Beyond with the 2020 Jeep Gladiator

September 12th, 2019 by

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator was designed to perform on nearly any terrain available as the most off-road-capable mid-size pickup truck ever. The Jeep Gladiator earns this recognition through its collection of high-quality equipment that expands the functionality of its standard, rugged 4×4 systems. The Gladiator’s exceptional off-road ability enables it also to become the only pickup ever earning the Trail Rated badge, given to vehicles that complete various grueling tests over the most challenging terrain to prove their off-road acumen. 

So how does the Gladiator’s equipment work to earn these prestigious honors and give owners the freedom to explore the unknown. The superior off-road ability needs a tailor-made engine. To satisfy the necessity, the Gladiator is equipped with a proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that has the punch owners will need to withstand the harsh surfaces. It delivers 285 horsepower, up to 260 pounds-feet of torque and up to 7,650 pounds of towing capacity.

The engine also utilizes stop-start technology which maximizes its efficiency. It has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 16/23 city/highway mpg. This vehicle brings more on every adventure that drivers go on thanks to the best-in-class available 7,650-pound towing capacity. There’s also the available 1,700-pound payload, and there are multiple ways to help keep it all secure. 

The traction and suspension articulation are vital components for successful off-roading, and the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will deliver unmatched performance through its variety of features. The Rock-Trac 4×4 system, which has a 4:1 low-gear ratio, is designed to enhance the driver’s control and to generate the massive torque to its wheels, conquering steep inclines or any obstacles that they may find on their way. There’s an electronic disconnecting sway bar that helps keep the driver moving through an aggressively uneven terrain by keeping all four wheels in contact with the ground, and the fox aluminum-bodied shocks also provide predictable off-road handling to help drivers navigate through harsh conditions.

The Gladiator also crafts innovative measures for off-road durability and protection so drivers can confidently take the Gladiator on the road less traveled. These include steel rock rails to armor both the cab sills and pickup bed, high-strength steel skid plates which avoid the damage to the fuel tank and transfer case. The extra-thick tubes and forgings to strengthen the standard heavy-duty Dana 44 axles.

Technology Puts Drivability Enhancements at Your Fingertips:

The Jeep Gladiator comes with a high-tech system that modernizes the off-roading experience when assistance is needed. The front and rear Tru-Lok electronic locking differentials help keep the Gladiator moving forward even when any of the wheels lose grip. There is an available TrailCam Off-Road Camera which displays gridlines on the path ahead which guides drivers in steering through the steep terrain and the obstacles ahead.

To prevent the dirtiness that comes from off-roading produces, the TrailCam has an integrated washer that lets drivers clear the dirt or mud from the lens by merely pressing the dashboard button. Drivers can transform their off-road adventures with a 2020 Jeep Gladiator. With a legendary 4×4 system and several terrain-oriented features, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator takes the off-roading experience to another level. 


The Gladiator Rubicon is engineered to leave payment behind. It’s the most off-road capable midsize pickup truck ever. Thanks in part to the combination of the impressive equipment like the front and rear Tru-Lok locking differentials. It has an available forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera.
