The 2020 Jeep Gladiator: Where Truck Capability Meets Off-Road Adventure

2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon

The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator couples truck capability with the brand’s iconic off-roading reputation to deliver a unique, exhilarating driving experience.

To put this uniqueness into perspective, the 2020 Gladiator is the most off-road capable mid-size pickup truck ever1, while also providing an ultimate open-air experience through removable doors, roof and windshield. Its combination of best-in-class available towing2 and payload capacities2, exceptional off-road maneuverability and exterior transformability, along with the modern technology to tie everything together, makes the Gladiator truly unlike any of its competitors.

High-Strength Utility to Transport Just About Anything

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Overland shown above can tow up to 6,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Boasting an available best-in-class 7,650-pound towing capacity2, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator unlocks an abundance of trailer-hitching possibilities. Additionally, the truck carries a 1,600-pound payload capacity2 with its rugged, all-steel 5-foot cargo bed, which can be coated with an available spray-in bedliner for maximum protection and durability. Enjoy the freedom to bring your gear along with you wherever you’re going regardless of whether you need to tow or load it.

Along with that freedom comes worry-free relief in the form of cargo security and towing control. The bed offers a three-position tailgate, four integrated tie-down loops, an available Trail Rail tie-down system that’s both adjustable and customizable, and an available roll-up tonneau bed cover. For towing, the available integrated trailer brake controller generates adjustable braking power to your trailer’s electric brakes so you can confidently reduce your speed and come to a stop when necessary.

Superior Capability to Take on Nearly Any Terrain

The standard heavy-duty Dana® 44 front and rear solid axles on the Gladiator have extra-thick tubes and forgings for exceptional strength, rigidity and durability.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is the only pickup truck to ever earn the Trail Rated® badge, which denotes a vehicle that has completed a series of demanding tests over the toughest terrain to prove it can perform in harsh conditions and deliver high-quality off-road capability. The Gladiator excels in the following abilities that fueled this achievement:

  • Traction: The 4×4 system helps distribute traction to the proper tires when necessary3.
  • Maneuverability: Precise steering and optimized wheelbases enable agile movement around gaps and objects3.
  • Articulation: Higher articulation levels help keep each tire grounded, stable and engaged3.
  • Ground clearance: Generous space helps you navigate through obstacles while avoiding underbody damage3.
  • Water fording: High air intake and special water sealing permit driving ability through bodies of water up to 30 inches in depth4.

Which trim levels and styles of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator get the Trail Rated® badge? All of them.

Modern Technology to Maximize Towing and Off-Roading Potential
