Here is an image of a new 2020 Jeep Gladiator truck at a dealership in Kaneohe, Hawaii. This is at the Windward Dodge / Hyundai store.
Is this just one of manufacturer promotional vehicles, or is this new Gladiator already available for sale? It appears to be a promotional vehicle, as the dealership does not list any Gladiator trucks in its inventory as of this writing.
Pricing, fuel economy, and first driving impressions of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will be available in about one week (at the end of March).
The truck launches with just one engine option – a 3.6L V6 with 280 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. The engine can be mated to an 8-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmissions.
The Jeep truck (JT) rides on a frame that is much longer than that of the new Jeep Wrangler (JL). The Gladiator only comes in a crew cab short bed 4×4 configuration. It’s rated at 1,600 lbs of payload and 7,650 lbs of towing capacity.
Here is a detailed look at the Gladiator’s design. Please stay tuned for more driving videos with the new Gladiator coming soon.
