2020 Jeep Gladiator

Designed to perform on nearly any terrain, the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator is the most off-road-capable mid-size pickup truck ever 1, allowing you to leave the paved road in your rearview mirror.

The Gladiator earns this accolade through its repertoire of high-quality equipment that maximizes the functionality of its standard, rugged 4×4 systems. In fact, the Gladiator’s exceptional off-road ability enabled it to also become the only pickup to ever earn the Trail Rated® badge, which is given to vehicles that successfully complete a series of grueling tests over the most difficult terrain to prove their off-road acumen. Here’s how the Gladiator’s equipment works tirelessly to earn these prestigious honors and give you the freedom to explore the unknown.

Superior off-road ability requires a tailor-made engine under the hood. To satisfy this necessity, the 2020 Gladiator is equipped with the proven 3.6-liter Pentastar® V-6 engine that packs the punch you need to withstand tough surfaces:

  • 285 horsepower
  • Up to 260 pounds-feet of torque
  • Up to 7,650 pounds of towing capacity2

The engine also utilizes stop-start technology to maximize its efficiency. As a result, it has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 16/23 city/highway mpg.3

Undercarriage Features Empower Unsurpassed Maneuverability and Advanced Protection

Traction and suspension articulation are other vital components for successful off-roading, and the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator delivers unmatched performance through a variety of features:

  • The Rock-Trac® 4×4 system, with a 4:1 low-gear ratio, is designed to enhance your control of the 2020 Gladiator and generate massive torque to its wheels to conquer steep inclines or any obstacles in your way.
  • An electronic disconnecting sway bar helps keep you moving through aggressively uneven terrain by helping to keep all four wheels in contact with the ground.1
  • Fox aluminum-bodied shocks provide predictable off-road handling to help you navigate through harsh conditions.

Additionally, the Gladiator crafts innovative measures for off-road protection and durability so you can confidently take on the road less traveled. These include steel rock rails to armor both the cab sills and pickup bed, high-strength steel skid plates to avoid damage to the fuel tank and transfer case, and extra-thick tubes and forgings to strengthen the standard heavy-duty Dana® 44 axles.

Technology Puts Drivability Enhancements at Your Fingertips

Finally, the Jeep® Gladiator comes with handy high-tech systems that modernize the off-roading experience when you need some assistance:

  • Front and rear Tru-Lok® electronic locking differentials can help keep the Gladiator moving forward even when three out of four wheels lose traction.
  • An available TrailCam Off-Road Camera displays gridlines on the path ahead to guide you in steering through obstacles and difficult terrain.

And to counteract the inevitable dirtiness that off-roading produces, the TrailCam includes an integrated washer that lets you clear dirt or mud from the lens by simply pressing a dashboard button.
