2020 Jeep Gladiator Price Australia – The new (and long-awaited) ute based on Wrangler has been presented, with the 2020 Jeep Gladiator finally revealed in Los Angeles. It was the subject of several leaks, and it seems that all were affected by the money, with the Jeep incursion into the boom of the pick-up segment that promised a solid payload and towing specifications, as well as solid all-terrain credentials.

“Without a doubt, a truck and instantly recognizable as a Jeep, the new 2020 gladiator is the best vehicle for any outdoor adventure,” says U.S. Jeep chief Tim Kuniskis.
“There is a great demand for this unique vehicle by our loyal Jeep customers and pick-up pickup buyers everywhere. Gladiator, born of a rich and proud legacy of rugged and reliable Jeep trucks, combines a robust utility, versatility and functionality that result in the most capable midsize truck.
“This is the answer to what happens when Jeep manufactures a truck. It is the most anticipated Jeep product in recent history; It’s a 100% truck, a 100% Jeep and an original 100% “.
The Gladiator is not the first Jeep attempt on a truck, with a ute based on Wrangler (or one of his former ancestors) launched in the 1940. So why bring him back now? Because medium-sized ute sales have doubled in the U.S. In the last month (the results are largely reflected in Australia), and Jeep wanted a portion of that lucrative pie.
First, let’s take a moment to just look at it. The Jeep square icon for all-terrain vehicles is clearly suited to a unique design, so the FCA team has stuck a tray on the back of a four-door Wrangler Unlimited with a hard or soft roof option.
Internationally, the Gladiator will arrive at three levels of equipment (sport, sport S, Overland and Rubicon) and will be available with two engine options, a 3.6 litre V6 of petrol for 209 KW and 353Nm, combined with an automatic eight-speed transmission or Six-speed Manual: While a 3.0-liter diesel V6 will be released later, scheduled for 2020.
The wheels measure 17 inches and the Gladiator extends 5539 mm in length, 1875 mm wide and up to 1907 mm in height.
The towing capacity is indicated in “up to ” 7650 lbs, or about 3.5 tonnes, and payload capacity at 1600 lbs, or 725 kilograms, with manual transmission. But that number drops to about 500 kg if you opt for an automatic transmission.
Like the Wrangler on which it is based, the off-road adventures should be a breeze. Even the cheapest Sport model obtains the Command-Trac 4×4 system, with a two-speed transfer box and front and rear axles Dana 44. But the Rubicon model will be the hardest of all, with a Rock-Trac 4×4 system with “4LO” and Tru-Lok blocking differentials and anti-roll bar disconnection.
And it should also be able to operate the Gladiator, thanks to a tray that extends over five feet or 1531 mm, and is equipped with a covered power supply and mooring points.
American cars also come with the collapsible windshield, though that unlikely to reach Australia. On the technical front, a selection of touch screens of 5.0, 7.0 or 8.4 inches (depending on the level of equipment) is equipped with Apple display and Android Auto.
The release date in Australia of the Gladiator remains unclear, although it is confirmed for our market. But as a launch is expected in the U.S. In the middle of the new year, we would be surprised to see a gladiator here before the end of next year.
