The New 2020 Jeep Gladiator
Jeep has unleashed one of its greatest innovations ever in its the new 2020 2020 Gladiator. Practicality meets adventure in this magnificent piece of machinery. If you’re one of the growing numbers of off-road enthusiasts, you have to check out The All New 2020 Jeep Gladiator!
The Total Package
The All New Jeep Gladiator 2020 has everything you want in a pickup and a Jeep. From the towing package to the gigantic bed to the beefy engine, this beauty has everything. In this Jeep, you have a vehicle that can take you to work during the week and to the trails on the weekend.
Towing Package and Capacity
The Jeep Gladiator has a hefty towing package. The truck has a towing capacity that can pull up to 7,650 pounds. It also can carry up to 1,600 pounds. So, if you’re looking for something that can tow or carry a heavy payload, the Gladiator is your best choice.
Jeep worked hard to design the All New 2020 Jeep Gladiator with the necessary muscle to tow without burning out its engine. The wider grille on the Gladiator allows a higher level of intake, thid allows the engine to cool down more quickly.
Truck Bed and Tail Gate
The Gladiator sports a five-foot bed made of high-strength steel. Plus, the bed has lighting built in so you can see your cargo. The heavy-duty bed also has four heavy-duty tie-downs, two of which pivot. You also have the option of an external power source and a spray-in bed liner. Upon request, you can also get a customizable cargo management system. The bed has a damped tailgate which you can set to three different positions. You can have the gate shut, closed, or halfway open on purpose. Thus, Jeep created a vehicle that you can haul long loads like plywood or a ladder without worrying about losing your cargo.
Off-road enthusiasts have long recognized Jeep as the go-to vehicle for off-roading. The Gladiator fits well into the Jeep family because it has comparable off-roading capabilities to the Wrangler. Jeep’s Command-Trac 4×4 system comes in every Gladiator on the market. Each truck has a 2-speed transfer case and Dana 44 front and rear axles. Jeep made these axles hearty by wrapping them in tubes that are 10mm thicker than what they use on a Wrangler. The Jeep Gladiator Rubicon exists as well. It also has the same Rock-Track 4×4 system. It also has the Dana 44 axles.
The Rubicon differs, though, in that it has locking differentials. Jeep also fitted the Rubicon with an electronic sway-bar disconnect feature. So, the Rubicon can handle tougher terrain a bit better.
Handling the Obstacles
Many truck enthusiasts question whether the Jeep Gladiator can handle the same terrain as its cousin the Wrangler. After all, it is 31 inches longer than even the 4-door Wrangler. It has 19.4 more inches on its wheelbase. That typically does not translate well in off-roading. But both your basic Gladiator and Rubicon have proven themselves more than capable in handling large obstacles and deep mud well. Meaty tires and weighty torque along with a ground clearance of 11.1 inches give the 2020 Jeep Gladiator the muscle it needs to handle small boulders, tricky trails, and thick mud.
While the Gladiator does not come with a winch, it does come winch ready. The front bumper can handle a sturdy winch thanks to the standard skid plates on both the front and rear tow hooks.
Regular trucks come with cruise control. The Jeep Gladiator, upon your request, comes with its special form of speed control called Selec-Speed control. This works like cruise control for off-roading, keeping your speed between one and five miles an hour. So, you can focus on steering rather than working a throttle or break. Your loose downhill rides will go more smoothly because the speed control prevents your wheels from slipping.
The Jeep Gladiator currently comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine. It creates 285 horsepower and has 260 lb-ft of torque. It also has a 6-speed manual transmission. Upon special request, you can purchase a Gladiator with 8-speed automatic transmission. Jeep have stated that they may eventually offering a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 with 260 hp and 442 lb-ft torque.
On the Road Ride
Jeep created a truck in its Gladiator that can handle the terrain of off-roading while still providing you with a smooth highway ride to work. The suspension system features a 5-link coil both in the front and back. It also has different control arms and dampers that create a smoother ride on the highway. Jeep used the same rear suspension they used on the 2019 Ram 1500. This measurement makes the break-over angle on the Gladiator better. You end up with this cushioned, smooth ride because of these changes.
Jeep keeps improving its highway ride. The Gladiator has little vibration thanks to its thoughtful suspension and tire size. The Overland and Sport models have 32-inch tires, and the Rubicon has 33-inch tires. The Gladiator has the same on-road safety feature as any on-road vehicle. It has blind-spot warnings, cruise control, a forward-collision warning, and rear cross-traffic warnings.
You can also listen to your favorite tunes or podcast in the Jeep Gladiator. It features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in every vehicle along with a 7 or 8.4-inch screen.The 7-inch screen comes standard in both the Overland and Rubicon and is an option in the Sport. An 8.4-inch screen is something Overland and Rubicon owners can choose.
