While the engine in the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is quite impressive, it is important to keep in mind that its performance is so much more than just the engine – it is all about intelligent design. The engine itself is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 that offers up to 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque for great overall power and performance. There is no need to worry about looking for upgrades to get the best performance possible – it is all right here right from the start.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator also gets excellent fuel economy for a pickup truck thanks to the engine’s stop-start technology that helps boost efficiency. The Gladiator gets an estimated 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with a six-speed manual transmission. That makes this a great choice for long road trips or a weekend of going off-road, conquering challenging trails, and doing some camping.
What really sets the 2020 Jeep Gladiator apart, however, and establishes it as a force to be reckoned with among similar pickups, is the amount of muscle it has for getting work done. Among mid-size trucks, there is no better option out there since the Gladiator offers best-in-class availability in terms of both towing capacity and maximum payload. You can haul up to 7,650 LBS behind the Gladiator and it has a maximum payload of up to 1,600 LBS. This is an unmatched option for going on adventures and taking everything you need with you, whether you prefer camping, tackling an off-road trail, or just want to go on a road trip.
What’s exciting, and revolutionary, about the 2020 Jeep Gladiator concept is the idea of marrying an open-air 4x4 cab design with a truck bed. The front end of the Gladiator design features Jeep Wrangler’s black soft top or three-piece Freedom Top hardtop with two lightweight panels positioned over the front seats. The Gladiator’s easily removable Freedom Panels can be conveniently stowed in a storage bag, and the rear seat storage in the cab is lockable, for an open-air midsize truck driving experience like no other. Doors can also be removed for that truly distinctive 4x4 Jeep experience. There’s simply nothing like it.
The functional back end of the long-awaited 2020 Jeep Gladiator design features a dependable steel bed, with optional spray-in liner, and an easily-lowered, three-position tailgate. This design feature makes the Gladiator an ideal choice for outdoor enthusiasts planning to take it off-road and camp, or utilize the bed for both work and play. Even tailgating before the game takes on an edgy personality. Trend-setting 17-inch x 7.5-inch full face steel wheels come standard, combining urban and off-road design attributes to the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Also available for the truck’s versatile bed is a roll-up tonneau cover and 115-volt power outlet, preparing you for most anything life throws at you.
