Posted on August 5, 2020
The Jeep is an all-American vehicle, and sales show no signs of slowing down. In the last decade, it's exploded in popularity in Canada, going from 37,000 sales in 2010 to over 71,500 in 2018. Whether you're a lifetime Jeep fan or are just recently coming around, it's always a good idea to have one of these in your garage. If you're thinking of purchasing a new car for either yourself or a loved one, then consider the 2020 Jeep Gladiator.
In this article, we'll tell you all about the specs, benefits, and available trims of this vehicle.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is based on the Jeep Wrangler, which is a renowned vehicle by this brand. However, the Gladiator is much bigger, considering it's a mid-sized pickup truck.
This vehicle is built from the ground up to give you a truly wonderful off-roading experience whenever you desire. What makes it a spectacular truck is it's Jeep's first pickup truck they've released in almost 3 decades! This is how you know they've carefully crafted this pickup truck to give you the best in performance and safety.
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler comes in 4 available trims: Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon. Read on to find out more about each one.
This is the most basic trim and prices start at around $35,000.
With this trim, you'll enjoy the Uconnect 3 infotainment system, a 5-inch touchscreen, and 8 speakers in your sound system.
Next up is the Sport S, which starts at around $38,000.
This car comes with All Sport trim features, automatic headlights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and 17-inch Tech Silver aluminum wheels.
The third trim option is the Overland, which starts at around $41,000.
Features include All Sport S trim features, the Uconnect 4 infotainment system, and a 7-inch touchscreen. You'll also enjoy 18-inch Granite Crystal aluminum wheels and Overland-exclusive upholstery that has intricate embroidery.
Last, but not least, we have the Rubicon. This trim's prices start at around $45,000.
You'll enjoy All Overland trim features, LED lighting on the inside, and Rubicon-exclusive upholstery with intricate embroidery. You'll also get the 4:1 Rock-Trac Heavy-Duty Part-Time 4-wheel drive system and 33-inch all-terrain tires.
With all the trims of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, you'll get a 3.6 L V6 engine with 285 HP and 260 pound-feet of torque. You can choose either the standard 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic.
It does take a little bit of effort to go from 0 to 60 mph (around 7 seconds), but considering you probably won't be using a pickup truck to do some racing, this shouldn't matter too much.
What you probably care about is the truck's towing capacity. Most people use pickups to get their cargo around, after all.
This vehicle comes with a cargo bed that's 5-foot long. While it may be slightly shorter than you're used to, it's super easy to get things on and off. It even has a special tailgate position that lets you carry longer items safely, such as plywood.
You'll be pleased to know that if you choose the Max Towing Package, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator can tow up to 7,650 pounds with up to 1,600 pounds in the cargo bed. This makes it highly competitive to other mid-sized pickup trucks in its class.
As expected, the fuel efficiency for this pickup truck is alright. In the city, it gets around 16 mpg, while it gets 23 mpg on the highway. Combined, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator gets 19 mpg.
Considering it needs lots of power to carry and tow cargo, the Gladiator's fuel efficiency isn't too bad. It also has an engine start/stop button, which is convenient when you're conscious about your fuel consumption.
Considering this vehicle is noticeably bigger than the Wrangler, you'll have plenty of space inside for both the driver and passengers. In the back, your passengers have around 41 inches of legroom.
When you're just driving around on your own and need more cargo space, you can always fold down the bench in the back and lock the seatbacks into space to store more items.
Earlier, we mentioned this pickup truck was designed for off-roading. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator comes standard with part-time 4-wheel drive! Also, it has very light steering, which lets you handle any rough roads you encounter.
The Gladiator has a folding soft top that's similar to the Wrangler. Not only can you take the top off, but the doors come off and the windshield folds down as well. So if you want to take this vehicle off-roading, you can get the best experience possible.
Every trim comes with a standard touchscreen; if you want bigger displays, then you'll have to upgrade. And if you want a better sound system, you can get the optional subwoofer and portable wireless speaker in your backseat.
For those of you who are bound to technology, you'll be pleased to know that in the front, there are 2 USBs and a USB-C port, as well as a 115 V outlet.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator doesn't currently have an overall safety rating.
However, it's received a 4 out of 5 for its overall frontal crash rating. It received a 4 out of 5 for the front driver side and 5 out of 5 for the front passenger side.
It's also gotten a 3 out of 5 for its rollover rating, with a rollover risk of 26.7%.
