A modern take on authentic Jeep design
The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator boasts a rugged, distinguished design aesthetic that is immediately recognizable with traditional Jeep design cues. The pickup features a modern design that is instantly recognizable as a Jeep with its iconic keystone-shaped grille, a fold-down windshield, easy-to-use premium soft top, and two hardtops.

The Jeep design team kept the legendary seven-slot grille seen on Wrangler, but widened the grille slots for additional air intake to assist with the increased towing capacity. The top of the keystone-shaped grille is gently swept back to enhance aerodynamics.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is available in these different trim configurations: Sport, Sport S, Overland and Rubicon.

Gladiator Overland and Rubicon models share an available three-piece body-color hardtop option, offering a unique, premium appearance, while a black three-piece hardtop, available on all models, provides even more options for open-air driving. The two Freedom panels and quick-release latches enable a fast removal and installation of the hardtop. All hardtops feature a manual rear-sliding window.

Dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations allow for endless configuration possibilities.

Most capable midsize truck ever without compromise
The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator also delivers unmatched off-road capability and advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, up to 7,650 pounds of towing capacity and up to 1,600 pounds of payload capacity in the five-foot steel bed. Legendary off-road capability comes courtesy of the Command-Trac and Rock-Trac 4×4 systems, third-generation Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited-slip differential, segment-exclusive sway-bar disconnect, and 33-inch off-road tires.

Inside the bed, there’s available under-rail bed lighting, an available covered external power source, and strongly integrated tie-downs. Inside of the cabin, and exclusive to Gladiator, the rear seats feature segment-leading rear legroom and utilize a unique design that can be locked in place to provide secure storage behind the seat back. The rear seats can also be folded flat to access cab-back storage.

More than 80 available advanced safety and security features
Safety and security were paramount in the development of the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator, which offers more than 80 available active and passive safety and security features. Available features include Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, forward-facing off-road camera, standard ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines, Adaptive Cruise Control and electronic stability control (ESC) with electronic roll mitigation.

While the Gladiator offers the latest in capability, design and technology, it also carries on a more than 40-year legacy of tough, dependable Jeep trucks. This dates back to 1947 with the first Willys Overland Jeep pickup, continued through 1963 when the original Gladiator pickup was introduced and stretched through the Jeep Comanche in the early 1990s.

Built in Toledo, Ohio, the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator arrives in showrooms in the second quarter of 2019.
