2020 Jeep Gladiator Pickup Truck

Originally based on the Wagoneer platform, the Jeep Gladiator (and later the Jeep Truck) was a legendary pickup that, much to the chagrin of fans everywhere, went the way of the dodo in the late 1980s. Since then, concepts and rumors have abounded, laying the groundwork for a potential return. And today, it’s finally happened with the 2020 Jeep Gladiator.

Unlike previous iterations, this new version is actually based on the Wrangler, which is undeniably Jeep’s most reliably popular platform. It also boasts many of the same features, including the ability to take off the top, doors, and drop the windshield — making this the industry’s one and only open-air pickup truck. It also offers the same (or better) off-roading capabilities as its shorter siblings, courtesy of an 11.1″ ground clearance, heavy-duty Dana axles, and a FOX suspension — affording it the ability to ford waters up to 30″ deep and making it the most capable midsize pickup ever made. It can also haul up to 1,600 pounds worth of gear, tow up to 7,650 pounds, and has loads of modern tech (like Bluetooth connectivity and onboard navigation) in the beautifully-appointed cabin. The 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar version, with 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, will be available at launch with a diesel option coming shortly thereafter. Pricing has yet to be announced.
