2020 Jeep Gladiator in Owego, NY
We haven’t seen the name Jeep® Gladiator since 1971. There hasn’t even been a Jeep® truck since the early 90s. But the Gladiator is back, and it’s already turning heads. This new model has the distinctive look of a Jeep® with a classic Wrangler-like grille, but the capabilities of a pickup with a 5-foot bed and crew cab.
Power and capability
Off-roading is a priority for the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator, which comes with the legendary Command-Trac and Rock-Trac 4x4 systems, third-generation Dana 44 axles, Trac-Lok limited-slip differential, and 33-inch off-road tires. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 dishes out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. New for 2020 is the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, which churns out 25 less horsepower while almost doubling the torque and offering better fuel economy.
With towing capabilities comparable to the HEMI® V8 Cherokee, the Gladiator earns its title as truck: up to 1,600 pounds of payload capacity and up to 7,650 pounds of towing capacity. Features in the bed include under-rail lighting and an available covered external power source.
Technology and interior features
Despite its classic feel, the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator is full of the latest safety features and technology. The Uconnect® system syncs Apple and Android smartphones with ease and the instrument cluster sports a full-color LED display. Safety is a key factor in the design of the Gladiator, with more than 80 available features including blind-spot monitoring, a backup camera, and rear movement detection. There’s even a forward-facing off-road camera that allows the driver to see obstructions ahead while traversing difficult terrain.
The 2020 Gladiator is the only truck available to indulge in Jeep’s® open-air freedom. All models have manual rear-sliding windows and fold-down front windshields. The lightweight aluminum doors are easily removable, as is the hard top, and the Gladiator even offers soft-top options like its Wrangler cousin.
