The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Specs: Breaking Down by Trim

Posted by

I think we’ve pretty well covered the fact that the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is a force to be reckoned with. This is particularly so when compared with the traditional midsize pickup truck market.

It’s ruggedly handsome with a modern twist, all thanks to its boxy Wrangler aesthete and removable-door configuration. It’s built with unforgiving terrain in mind, as proven by an electronically locking rear differential, heightened ground clearance and—heck—even a TrailCam. It’s made for the adventurer, whether they be entrenched in the dirt-bike game, camping scene or both. And it can tackle the work site alongside the rest of the midsize pickups, a claim set in stone with serious capability specs.

By now, the Gladiator has shown itself off at many an auto show, and audiences are only continuing to flock. We would even go so far to say that this truck is one of the primary pulls for auto enthusiasts across the continent (if not the globe) as they head to these events.

Not All Trims Are Created Equal

Now, as you are likely aware, the upcoming Gladiator is going to be available in four trims. Jeep has strategically engineered each one to offer unique benefits. That way, the diverse pickup lovers of the world would be able to choose a truck that fits the bill, whether it be in the hauling category or budget department.
