The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator is breaking out the big guns with best-in-class towing capability and an off-road-ready performance. The highly anticipated 2020 Jeep Gladiator is a four-door, five-passenger midsize truck based on the Jeep Wrangler body and frame. It’s set to be the most capable midsize truck on the road, whether you’re looking to tow best-in-class loads or take a tour of some seriously rugged terrain.
What is the Jeep Gladiator?
You’ll find four 2020 Jeep Gladiator trims at the dealership: Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon. Each gets the same 5-foot cargo bed and capable 3.6-liter V6 engine. That V6 comes straight out of the Wrangler, giving you a sturdy output of 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. That’s some pretty serious muscle for moving heavy loads and plowing through uncut terrain. And each of these trucks comes standard with four-wheel drive, which means they’re more than ready for off-road action.
2020 Gladiator Sport
In the Gladiator Sport, you get everything you need for off-road fun. That means all-season tires, removable doors, and a convertible soft top. Its standard Class II bumper hitch is good for towing trailers weighing up to 4,500 pounds—that’s equal to a pretty big boat or a even a small Airstream.
2020 Gladiator Sport S
Upgrade to the Sport S for the usual list of power accessories, like windows, door and tailgate locks. This Gladiator even adds a little luxury, with an auto-dimming rearview mirror and heated power mirrors to keep visibility at max levels. Add the Max Tow package to this trim and you’ll be towing best-in-class loads.
H3: 2020 Gladiator Overland
The Overland is the stylish one of the bunch. It’s decked out in 18-inch alloy wheels, tinted rear side and rear windows, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Its LED ambient footwell lighting is another luxurious touch, helping you into the cabin after dark.
Inside, the Overland steps up your infotainment game with the 7-inch touchscreen interface. The Overland even adds USB charging ports for your backseat passengers. When you’re deep in the wilderness, the 110-volt power outlet comes in handy for recharging laptops and LED camping lanterns.
2020 Gladiator Rubicon
If you’re familiar with the Wrangler lineup, you already recognize the Rubicon, whose name is synonymous with rugged performance. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon is loaded with off-road-ready hardware—everything you need to explore the wild, from its 33-inch all-terrain tires to its Fox shock absorbers.
Why choose the 2020 Jeep Gladiator?
It’s probably more practical to wonder why you wouldn’t choose the Gladiator. With its off-road prowess and best-in-class towing capabilities, this midsize truck is already like no other.
But the fun doesn’t end there. The Gladiator is the world’s only convertible truck, increasing your fun quotient with its removable top and doors. As with the Jeep Wrangler, you get to choose your top. The soft top comes at no extra cost, but you can always select the three-piece hardtop with removable roof panels. The Overland and Rubicon are available with body-colored hardtops for a sleeker look.
In rugged terrain, the Gladiator obliterates boundaries. Its Wrangler underpinnings make the Gladiator the most capable truck in off-road terrain, whether you’re weathering desert runs or muddy riverbeds. As with the Wrangler, the Gladiator Rubicon is the line’s toughest trim model. The Rubicon is ready for all-out action with its standard 33-inch all-terrain tires and disconnectable front stabilizer bar.
What’s the 2020 Jeep Gladiator max towing capacity?
Want the Gladiator with the strongest towing capabilities? Properly equipped, the Sport S is the trim model that tows best-in-class loads—up to 7,650 pounds. If you’ve got a boat that’s bigger than most, the Gladiator is the only midsize pickup truck for you.
When will the 2020 Jeep Gladiator be available?
America’s only convertible truck is here. The Gladiator arrived at dealerships and became available to order on April 4, 2019. If you’re ready for a test drive, the 2020 Gladiator is waiting.
