Jeep releases the online configurator for the upcoming 2020 Gladiator pickup truck, but there is a catch. There are no prices available yet. You can pick your trim level and options, but we still don’t know exactly how much it will cost.
You can build your own Gladiator.
2020 Jeep Gladiator
As previously described there are four main trim levels: Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon. While we saw examples of the Overland and Rubicon at the 2018 LA Auto Show, this is our first official look at the base Sport and the Sport S models.
There is one engine option, but two transmission choices. It’s the 3.6L V6 from the Jeep Wrangler and a choice between the standard 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic. The engine is rated at 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The Gladiator is offered in ten color choices (see configurator link above for the colors).
The Gladiator truck comes only as a crew cab with 4×4. It is rated at a maximum 1,650 lbs of payload capacity and 7,650 lbs of towing. Originally, Jeep told us that an integrated brake controller is not available from the factory, but the online configurator offers it as a separate option.
The base model comes with 17-inch steel rims and a basic infotainment system. Three-piece hardtop, trailer tow, auxiliary switches, spray-in bedliner are some of the optional items. The Gladiator Sport is the model that is rated at maximum 7,650 lbs of towing.
The Sport S adds 17-inch aluminum rims and remote keyless entry. Seven-inch infotainment touchscreen and cold weather package are on the list of available options. The Sport S is also rated to tow 7,650 lbs.
The Overland trim level is meant to be more of a luxurious Gladiator model. It offers 18-inch rim, leather interior, multiple top options, optional driver assistance technologies and an 8.4-inch infotainment system.
While the Overland model is more about luxury, the Rubicon is the ultimate off-road capable version. It includes a 4:1 low-range transfer case and Rock-Trac 4×4 system. It is riding on all-terrain or mud-terrain 33-inch tires. The Rubicon is not short on luxury features either. You can get body-color fenders, LED lights, front-facing camera, steel bumpers, several top options, and more.
