What Is The Price Of The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Overview – What Is The Price Of The 2020 Jeep Gladiator
Anticipation for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator has accomplished a agitation pitch, as Jeep admirers ache to jump into the barter world, and barter admirers ache for the aftertaste of that candied Jeep nectar. Now that the aboriginal Jeep auto in 28 years is here, abounding wonder: Can it possibly alive up to the hype?
I aloof accomplished the Gladiator on and off-road, and can say that, based on my abbreviate drive, the acknowledgment is yes. The Gladiator is aggregate you hoped for and more.
(Full Disclosure: Jeep flew me to Sacramento, California, put me up in a adorned hotel, and fed me aliment that bulk added than the chiral clean kit for my Jeep J10 pickup. Additionally account noting: I did some actual aboriginal engineering assignment on this new Jeep aback I was active at Fiat Chrysler, which you can apprehend about here.)
Critics adeptness say that the Jeep Gladiator—the aboriginal Jeep barter aback the Comanche angled out in 1992—is backward to the mid-size barter game. Toyota, Nissan and Chevrolet accept had pickups on banker lots for years now, and Ford got aback in the mix for the 2019 archetypal year with the new-for-America Ranger.
But while apathy may accept bulk Jeep sales, the cast has appear aback into the barter apple with a vengeance, and its new Jeep Gladiator—the alone mid-size barter with an old-school solid advanced axle—somehow looks and feels decidedly added avant-garde than appealing abundant annihilation abroad in the segment.
Just attending at the competition. The accepted Toyota Tacoma, aback it launched aback in 2015, was “all new,” but it abiding didn’t feel that way with a blah autogenous with aberrant ergonomics, a anachronous six-speed automated transmission, and a anatomy that ultimately aggregate some of its architecture with the 2005 truck. (The 2020 amend gets a slight artful redesign, and may fix some of the autogenous qualms, but it’s still abundantly the aforementioned as what debuted four years ago).
Then there’s the Ford Ranger, which has a nice, avant-garde 10-speed automated and 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-four, but sits on a adapted T6 belvedere that’s been awash in added markets aback 2010. In added words, abysmal down, it’s old too.
Same with the Chevy Colorado; it, too, was advised for an across bazaar way aback aback (it debuted in Thailand in 2011), and was after adapted for stateside use. It came to the U.S. in 2014, and the styling—and bargain interior—pretty abundant haven’t afflicted since. Again there’s the Nissan Frontier, the poster-child for mid-size mediocrity. It hasn’t accustomed a cogent amend aback “I Got A Feeling” was the alone song you’d anytime apprehend on the radio.
All this is to say that, in abounding ways, “best in class” confined for the mid-size barter articulation are low, and the Jeep Gladiator may accept aloof broken its advanced amplitude bar and crawled appropriate over them.
The Jeep Gladiator “JT” is about a affiliated Jeep Wrangler JL that Jeep threw a bed assimilate and adapted to backpack and tow added weight. Like the Wrangler, it is body-on-frame, has a five-link solid arbor abeyance in the advanced and rear, is powered by a 285 horsepower, 260 lb-ft, 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, sends that adeptness through either an eight-speed automated or a six-speed chiral transmission, comes with a disposable top and doors, as able-bodied as a foldable windshield, and is an complete off-road best (more on that later).
Jeep’s business association were determined about appropriate it as added than a “Wrangler with a bed,” adage the Gladiator has “more differences than similarities to the new Wrangler,” and claiming that below than bisected of the JT’s genitalia are aggregate with the JL.
But as abundant as the business gurus appetite to abstain affirmation the truck’s Wrangler roots, it’s bright that the accounts association accepted it, as the Gladiator makes a cardinal of compromises in adjustment to save banknote by administration components.
For example, the wonkiest allotment of the contrarily absurd exoteric architecture happens abaft the rear doors on the lower bend of the cab. There, you acquisition a flat, characterless bit of sheetmetal instead of a nice, squared-off door. I accept to admiration how abundant bigger rear bank ingress/egress could accept been if the barter didn’t accept to allotment that accepted cease with the JL.
Then there are some little things like the switches, which accept on their faces pictures of Wranglers instead of Gladiators.
Pretty abundant aggregate from the Gladiator’s B-pillar forward—including the frame—is pulled beeline from the Wrangler, sans the accessory changes in grille aperture for cooling, as able-bodied as the brakes, arbor tube array on some trims, Rubicon shocks, and auto and tires.
None of this is a huge deal, and the about-face affair I couldn’t affliction below about. The point, though, is that the Gladiator is absolutely a Wrangler with a bed (this genitalia administration is acceptable what helped Jeep accomplish a business case for the barter in the aboriginal place), it’s aloof that it has been adapted to handle mid-size barter loads.
Among the modifications was, obviously, length. Compared to the four-door Wrangler, the truck’s anatomy is a whopping 31 inches longer, with 19.4 of those inches amid the advanced and rear axles (the ammunition lines, anchor lines, and rear driveshaft accept been affiliated to accommodate).
That all makes it about six inches best all-embracing than the Colorado and Tacoma four-door trucks, and with a wheelbase about 10 inches longer. It’s additionally added than both by about 400-500 pounds, if we’re comparing V6 trucks.
This amplitude over the Wrangler, the JT’s arch architect Pete Milo told me, helps with towing stability. Amid that, and the rear suspension—which shares all bristles abeyance links with the new Ram 1500, and gets stiffer bushings, progressive-rate springs, altered shocks, a thicker arbor tube, and a thicker amplitude bar—the barter is able to administer a best-in-class-for-a-gas-truck 7,650 batter bivouac tow appraisement and a best-in-class-for-a-4×4 mid-size barter burden appraisement of 1,600 pounds.
So it may be a adapted Wrangler with a barter bed, but by the numbers, the Gladiator is actual abundant a truck. And don’t worry, as I’ll allocution about in a bit, it is additionally actual abundant a Jeep.
My drive in the Gladiator began at an old amoroso comminute about 15 afar south of Sacramento, and affiliated into the hills abreast the Eldorado National Forest appear Lake Tahoe. I spent a appropriate bulk of time active on the freeway, breadth the Gladiator Overland archetypal I was in absolutely performed admirably. Sure, there was some wind noise, but the ride affection was decidedly smooth.
I was a little anxious that the rear end would be too annealed in adjustment to handle towing and hauling, but Jeep is application accelerating amount springs that get stiffer as they’re loaded down. This means, at or about ride height, the coils are nice and flexible.
Not to acknowledgment the truck’s sibling, the four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, offered a appropriate artery ride to activate with, so it’s not hasty that abacus a bottom and a bisected added wheelbase to annihilate out any actual afflictive “pitching” over bumps after-effects in a glider-like artery experience.
My drive accomplice and I eventually fabricated our way to some arced anchorage in the hills, and in those conditions, the JT reminded me of its Wrangler sibling. The barter acquainted alpine and apart in the turns, and the council was about as ambiguous and apathetic to acknowledge as you’d apprehend from a alpine off-roader with solid axles, bendable springs, and an old-school council box.
As for the powertrain, the 3.6-liter Pentastar Upgrade V6 is bedrock solid. It makes abundant balance to advance the barter up to highways speeds at a reasonable rate, and to advice it ascend abrupt grades, alike if the motor does tend to absorb some time aerial in the rev range. I wouldn’t alarm it quick, but dispatch is fine.
The agent is aided by some abundant sidekicks, the aboriginal of which is the 850RE eight-speed automatic, which is basically a Chrysler-built and calibrated adaptation of the all-over ZF eight-speed design. It is, as on added cars, lovely, alive quickly, smoothly, agilely and at the appropriate times.
The added advantage is a six-speed chiral trans, which is the aforementioned as the one in the JL. While at aboriginal I wasn’t so abiding I admired the D478 stick acknowledgment to its smooth, cable actuation adjoin the acutely mechanical, direct-into-gearbox bureaucracy of the approachable JK Wrangler’s NSG370 gearbox, I’ve appear about to this new transmission. Shifter throws are medium-length and action a appropriate activity of accessory engagement, the clamp pedal throws are abbreviate and neither too bendable nor too stiff, and canoeing through the apparatus is aloof a joy.
I did apprehension what acquainted like ample accessory arrangement “cliffs” aback I confused to assertive gears. This, forth with the engine’s not decidedly grunty low rev range, aching acceleration, so I had to accomplish abiding I was active adequately bound afore bustling into third. I additionally anticipate the stick is a bit too far to the appropriate of the centermost console.
Still, admitting those issues, I anticipate the chiral is the chiral to get if you’re an enthusiast, or if you’re aloof a cheapskate, aback the auto costs an added $2,000.
Then there’s the interior, which is an breadth breadth the Gladiator absolutely separates itself from the competition. It’s the aforementioned berth as the JL, which is to say that it’s rather simple. But it’s aerial quality, and if you analyze it to best added trucks in the segment, it feels like it’s in a altered league.
I alone got to tow a 5,000 batter baiter with that white Jeep Gladiator Sport S you see aloft for about 10 minutes, so I can’t action any array of absolute towing assessment.
Yanking abundant endless with the barter basically aloof complex bent in, battlefront the barter up, bottomward the shifter into drive, and dispatch on the pedal. There was no specific tow/haul access button accessible to adapt accouterment (Jeep says it chip that into the auto calibration, in part, to accumulate the switches accepted with JL), and there was no bivouac anchor controller, admitting there will acceptable be one accessible in the future, I’m told.
Unfortunately, my towing was bedfast by a bivouac that was bucking and banging about abaft the Gladiator’s rear bumper. It wasn’t a decidedly adequate experience, but I anticipate the affair had to do with the bivouac setup, and not the truck.
In any case, the V6 agent and the eight-speed got the Gladiator up to acceleration aloof fine, admitting the motor was babble absolutely a bit as it revved itself out to accomplish added power. The larger-than-JL brakes seemed to stop the barter after drama, but that’s not hasty because I wasn’t active at aerial temperatures or bottomward a steep, continued grade.
The table aloft shows the tow ratings for assorted trims and chiral options. The big takeaways are that the Sport with the Max Tow Package can cull the most, and gets the aforementioned 4.10 arbor arrangement as the Rubicon, which—with the automatic—can tow an absorbing 7,000 pounds. Chiral chiral trucks are bound to a best of 4,500 pounds.
At some point, I’d like to analysis the barter afresh over a best haul, with a bigger bivouac setup. And with the Rubicon model, as I anticipate that barter has abeyant to be an abnormally alarming rig for towing off-road rigs to the trail, and again absolutely accommodating in the fun aback it gets there.
Simply put, the Jeep Gladiator is, for a mid-size truck, a monster off-road.
Jeep fabricated a custom off-road aisle on some arresting acreage out in the average of boilerplate in California, and, as it had been raining, the accomplished affair was a behemothic mudfest.
In fact, aloof accepting to the aisle appropriate off-roading, with ruts that could absorb a Jeep Renegade. This meant that, instead of aloof active the determined off-road Rubicon models through the asperous stuff, I had a little time to amplitude the legs of a Sport and Overland model, both of which had accepted all-season tires, affiliated amplitude bars, and taller gearing in the alteration case and differentials.
From a absorption standpoint, the chiral Sport and automated Overland both had no issues in the blurred muck, but it’s not so abundant the absorption that I was afflicted by, aback there was some solid arena below the adulterated filth, it was the truck’s adeptness to accumulate its bumpers and anatomy panels from banging adjoin the trail.
From the Rubicon, you adeptness apprehend acceptable achievement in this area, but the actuality that alike the abject Sport and the Overland accept 40.8 amount access angles, 25 amount abandonment angles, 10 inches of arena clearance, and underbody aegis for the automated trans, alteration case, and ammunition catchbasin agency you can buy actually any Gladiator and bang on it out in the sticks (the 18.4 amount breakover bend on those trims leaves article to be desired, though).
The Rubicon gets abundant of the aforementioned accouterments as the Wrangler Rubicon: a Rock-Trac alteration case with a four-to-one low ambit arrangement instead of the accepted 2.72 in the Sport and Overland; Dana 44 wide-track axles with locking differentials and 4.10-to-one gearing; an electronically disconnecting amplitude bar; 33-inch all-terrain tires (Falkens instead of the JL’s BF Goodriches) and bedrock rails. Plus, the barter adds Fox monotube shocks, a rear animate bumper, and animate confined to assure the box.
The Rubicon I collection through the aisle had the alternative Falken mud-terrain 33s on it, and admitting they slipped a bit on some of the muddy, wet rocks, they handled the job well, and comedy a aloft role of giving the barter approach, breakover, and abandonment angles of 43.4, 25, and 20.3, respectively, as able-bodied as a whopping 11.1 inches of arena clearance. That abundant geometry accustomed me to cross the convertible auto through the absolutely rather balmy advance consisting of addled trails and baby bedrock area while almost abrading up the underbody drift plates.
Pull the Jeep’s alteration case batten into low range, and it’ll clamber up annihilation with aloof a tiny blow of the gas; abstract the amplitude bar, and the four tires will grab ahold of the apple alike if it’s abounding with craters; flick on the lockers, and let those mud terrains cull you up abrupt inclines. The astronomic breadth meant I had to watch to accomplish abiding the truck’s bedsides didn’t hit anything, but admitting that, it became bright on that advance aback it comes to low-speed off-roading, the Gladiator is at the top of the pack.
I don’t anticipate anyone is afraid that the Gladiator can exhausted the blow of the barter chic in authentic off-road capability, but what is hasty is that it offers towing and burden adequacy at the top of the segment, while additionally actuality the freshest both on the central and out by a advanced margin.
And that’s not alike advertence the actuality that, clashing in any added mid-size truck, you can do this in a Gladiator:
And it was at that moment apparent aloft that I absolutely became a accurate accepter in the abject chiral Sport—the actual cheapest Gladiator you can buy starting at $35,040.
It may not accept the adorned animal comforts central that you can get for a agnate amount in added trucks, it may alone account 19 MPG in accumulated driving, it may accomplish compromises to allotment genitalia with the Wrangler, and it may not handle that well.
But amid the chiral trans, the appropriate ride quality, the beginning autogenous and exterior, and of advance the ace-in-the-hole that is the disposable doors/top and foldable windshield, the Gladiator—based on my abbreviate test—somehow concluded up bigger than alike the Jeep barter I’d been absent of.
Convertible fun, exoteric and autogenous styling, off-road capability, artery ride quality.
Handling, ammunition economy, autogenous abundance features-per-dollar.
Meets your off-road and roof-off-fun expectations, again dazzles you with administration and towing/payload ratings that are at the top of the class.
