The New Jeep Gladiator: The Highly Anticipated Next-Generation Jeep Pickup

The Jeep Gladiator was originally conceptualized and produced between 1962 and 1988, losing its "Gladiator" name in 1971 to the less-inspiring "J-Series" designation. Officially reintroduced as a concept for the 2005 model year, the newly reimagined Jeep Gladiator immediately captured the hearts and minds of Jeep and automotive enthusiasts alike across the globe.

Built on the Jeep Wrangler platform (JK), the 2005 Gladiator spurred enthusiasm that a Wrangler-based pickup would eventually come to fruition once more - on November 28th, 2018, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is released to the world, offering the capability, utility, style and rugged durability drivers yearned for decades. From Tamaqua to Hazelton, drivers seeking the next generation of Jeep pickup truck innovation and the latest in sought-after Jeep models will have their desires fulfilled with the 2019 model year Jeep Gladiator.

The Jeep Gladiator's History

Originally built on the iconic Jeep Wagoneer platform, the first iteration of the Jeep Gladiator offered the robust off-road capability drivers sought from within the Jeep brand, with the added utility of a pickup bed and an easily modified platform. Utilizing legendary Dana axles since its first generation, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is likely to include a similar layout and construction to its predecessors. Available in two-wheel or four-wheel drive in its earlier evolutions, and likely to include both options on the 2020 model, the Jeep Gladiator is likely to boast surprising efficiency alongside exceptional off-road capability. Drawing upon its earlier iterations and upholding its rugged performance legacy, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is slated to impress newly enamored fans and long-time Jeep enthusiasts alike.

The Next Generation: The 2020 Jeep Gladiator

With four doors, a front grille taken directly from the new Wrangler (JL) platform, and reportedly a choice of two engines ( a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6, and a new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 option), the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is poised to impress. With undoubtedly an array of off-road equipment to satisfy the adventurous drivers throughout Pottsville and Shenandoah, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will offer the utility desired by hardworking individuals and drivers requiring additional cargo capacity, alongside the iconic off-road capability drivers seek.

Why Buy A Jeep Pickup Truck?

While the additional utility of a cargo bed is immediately apparent, other aspects of a Jeep pickup truck may appeal to a particular driving style. The longer wheelbase and rugged construction offers drivers additional capability when traversing slick surfaces and difficult terrain like mud and snow. Additionally, the body-on-frame construction method provides impressive durability and strength - allowing for navigation over rocks and boulders with confidence not found on competing trucks of similar stature.

Furthermore, the new diesel powertrain reportedly offered for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will provide drivers with high torque output - ideal for off-road enthusiasts, or individuals likely to tow and haul large payloads frequently. Efficient and powerful, the various powertrains likely offered for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator ensures the satisfaction of a variety of drivers.
