Chris Benjamin has an enviable title. He’s the Head of Interior Design at Jeep, working under FCA North America. And he’s basically the one that ran the show when it came time to design the 2020 Jeep Gladiator interior.
FCA North America ran a quick profile of Benjamin on their Youtube channel, where he spoke about some of the motives behind the design of the Gladiator interior.
“We think that all of the thoughtfulness that we put into the interior offers the customer something that they’ve always wanted in a pickup truck but has never been available to them.”
“The Gladiator’s about functionality. It’s about how you use it. It’s about your lifestyle.”
Throughout the profile, Benjamin refers to the unique open-air nature of the Gladiator pickup truck. He also mentions the variety of rear seat configurations and lockable storage solutions. From the big details to the minutiae, Benjamin proves that the Gladiator interior designers really thought of it all.
