2020 Jeep Gladiator aboriginal drive
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is one of the best advancing agent launches of the year. Jeep hasn’t fabricated a auto barter aback 1992, aback the Cherokee-based Comanche accomplished production. Fans accept been clamoring for a new Jeep barter anytime since, and Jeep itself has teased the abstraction of a auto based on the accepted Wrangler aback 2004, aback it apparent a abstraction car called, you estimated it, Gladiator (the name was aboriginal acclimated on a Jeep barter in 1963).
Now that the Gladiator is assuredly here, was it account the wait? Can Jeep’s new Wrangler-based auto attempt adjoin accepted midsize trucks like the Chevrolet Colorado, Ford Ranger, and Toyota Tacoma? We went to California’s wine country to acquisition out.
When it goes on auction afterwards this year, the Gladiator will be accessible in four trim levels: abject Sport ($35,040), Sport S ($38,240), Overland ($41,890), and off-road-focused Rubicon ($45,040). All prices board a binding $1,495 destination charge. Jeep provided an Overland archetypal for on-road alive and a Rubicon for off-roading during our test.
At aboriginal glance, the Gladiator looks like a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a auto bed, which is fine. The bed, with its aboveboard taillights and simple “Jeep” lettering, adulation the accustomed Wrangler advanced end nicely, giving the Gladiator a cool, awakening look. From abaft the wheel, the Wrangler-like exoteric pays assets in accomplished apparent visibility. The square, cocked windows and chubby advanced end accomplish action in bound spaces easy, both on alley and off. The Rubicon model’s front-view camera (active alone at low speeds due to regulations) additionally helps.
Jeep additionally kept the fun actuality from the Wrangler, including a fold-down windshield, disposable roof (soft top standard, adamantine top optional) and disposable doors. But beneath the skin, the Gladiator deviates decidedly from the Wrangler.
“We couldn’t aloof booty a Wrangler, put a box on it, and say it’s truck-capable,” Pete Milosavlevski, arch architect for the Gladiator, told Digital Trends. The auto appearance a different anatomy and rear suspension, as able-bodied as bigger rear brakes, beefed up axles, and a bigger cooling arrangement compared to the Wrangler.
The autogenous will be accustomed to anyone who has spent time in a current-generation Wrangler. It sports an cocked dashboard meant to actor best Jeeps, while still all-around the binding avant-garde touchscreen. Jeep was quick to point out a scattering of absolute metal trim, as able-bodied as a rugged-feeling elastic abstraction about the touchscreen, but artificial seemed to be the best accepted trim material. The architecture makes up for that, though, as do abundant Easter Eggs like the angel of a Jeep ample up a bend of the windshield, and a backyard on the bend of the bed with the cardinal 419 and a affection — referencing the breadth cipher of Jeep’s hometown of Toledo, Ohio.
The Gladiator has a acceptable bulk of autogenous amplitude for a midsize truck, decidedly in the back.
Jeep additionally fabricated some Gladiator-specific changes inside. The rear seats are new, and absorb a lockable under-seat accumulator box so disciplinarian and cartage accept a defended abode to accumulate backing while alive about with the doors off. A water-resistant Bluetooth apostle lives in the bulkhead amid the cab and bed. It unplugs to board a carriageable antecedent of music wherever the Gladiator goes.
The Gladiator is 31 inches best than a Wrangler Unlimited with a wheelbase continued 19.4 inches. That translates into a acceptable bulk of autogenous amplitude for a midsize truck, decidedly in the back. Alone the Honda Ridgeline, addition midsize auto barter based on an absolute SUV (it’s basically a Honda Pilot with a bed) comes abutting in all-embracing autogenous space. Note that the Gladiator’s adamantine top roof does appear with a cogent allowance amends over the bendable top.
Most added automakers (Honda actuality the exception) action their midsize trucks with a four-door cab and abbreviate bed, or a two-door cab and continued bed. Jeep alone offers the former, a move that fits with the automaker’s accession of the Gladiator as primarily a affairs vehicle, rather than one for bodies who use their trucks for work. The Gladiator is accessible alone with a 5.0-foot auto box, with a burden accommodation of 35.5 cubic feet, according to Jeep. That’s a appropriate bulk of room, but not as abundant as a Ford Ranger able with a box of the aforementioned length. Ford claims its barter can authority 43.3 cubic anxiety of cargo.
The Gladiator uses the Uconnect infotainment arrangement advanced apparent in abundant cartage from Jeep and added Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) brands. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, forth with bristles USB ports (three front, two rear) are standard. The abject Gladiator Sport gets a 5.0-inch touchscreen as accepted equipment, but 7.0-inch and 8.4-inch screens are additionally available. A 3.5-inch TFT affectation (7.0-inch on college trim levels) sits amid analog gauges in the apparatus cluster.
Jeep offers adaptive cruise ascendancy and dark atom monitoring, but the closing can’t awning an absorbed trailer, as the Ford Ranger’s arrangement can. The Gladiator Rubicon archetypal does get a forward-facing camera that detects obstacles that are up to two anxiety advanced of the vehicle, which comes in accessible on the trail. It additionally appearance activating gridlines that appearance breadth the agent will go based on the accepted council angle. Normally begin on rear-view cameras, that affection absolutely comes in accessible aback acrimonious your way through mud and boulders off-road.
The Gladiator additionally appearance Jeep’s Selec-Speed Ascendancy system. It’s basically off-road cruise control, administration dispatch and braking while the disciplinarian steers. The disciplinarian can additionally baddest a acceleration amid 1 and 5 mph (that’s about as fast as you appetite to go during absolutely abstruse off-road driving). While the Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma feature agnate systems, Jeep’s is abundant added capable. It guided us over a accumulation of mud-slicked rocks at 1 mph effortlessly, befitting the Gladiator affective over these boxy obstacles with the chain of a zombie.
At launch, the Gladiator will be accessible alone with Jeep’s accustomed 3.6-liter gasoline V6, bearing 285 application and 260 pound-feet of torque. Six-speed chiral and eight-speed automated transmissions are available, and the Gladiator is the alone midsize barter with accepted four-wheel drive. The Rubicon gets a model-specific four-wheel drive arrangement with locking advanced and rear differentials and 4.10 low-range accessory arrangement for bigger off-road capability.
Jeep will add a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel to the agenda during the 2020 agenda year. Accessible alone with the eight-speed automatic, the six will accomplish 260 hp and a stout 442 lb-ft of torque. Aback it won’t be accessible until abutting year, we didn’t accept an befalling to sample this engine. Jeep hasn’t discussed affairs to action the Wrangler’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, or the accessible constituent amalgam powertrain, in the Gladiator.
The Gladiator kept affective over boxy obstacles with the chain of a zombie.
With the gasoline V6, the Gladiator offers added application than any added midsize barter agent except the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon twins, which accomplish 308 hp with their shared, another 3.6-liter V6. However, torque achievement is back-of-the-pack stuff. That will change aback the agent goes on sale. It will concealment alike the 369 lb-ft of the Colorado/Canyon agent – the torquiest agent currently accessible in a midsize truck.
Lack of torque doesn’t stop the gasoline-powered Gladiator from putting out some absorbing figures. Jeep claims it will tow up to 7,650 pounds aback appropriately equipped, with a burden accommodation of 1,600 pounds. Both abstracts put the Gladiator abreast the top of its class, but the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon diesels can tow hardly added (7,700 pounds), while the Ford Ranger offers added burden accommodation (1,860 pounds), according to their corresponding makers.
The Gladiator is additionally a accurate Jeep off the baffled path. The Rubicon model’s locking differentials, 33-inch tires (aired down, per accepted off-road practice), and disconnecting amplitude confined fabricated quick assignment of an off-road advance that featured abysmal mud and rocks fabricated glossy by contempo rainfall. Given Jeep’s off-road reputation, we accepted the Gladiator to handle this. We didn’t apprehend it to be so easy.
All Gladiator models accept four drift plates to assure the underside, while the Rubicon adds bedrock balustrade beneath the doors and at the bed corners to assure the bodywork from damage.
The Gladiator was congenital for the trail, but will apparently see added pavement than clay in chump hands. That’s a botheration because, clashing the current-generation Wrangler, the Gladiator’s on-road amenities could use some polish.
The ride affection is poor alike for a acceptable body-on-frame truck, and abnormally bad because how able-bodied the analogously complete Ford Ranger and Chevy Colorado ride on pavement. Jeep best arced anchorage for the drive to the off-road course, including a amplitude of California’s acclaimed Pacific Coast Highway. This is a abundant abode to choke out a sports car, but the Gladiator acquainted out of place. It’s not all bad, though: the adamantine top archetypal acquainted as annealed and solid as a agent with a permanently-attached roof, and wind babble was subdued.
Jeep alone had ammunition abridgement estimates for the 3.6-liter gasoline V6 accessible in time for publication. It’s accepted to get 19 mpg accumulated (17 mpg city, 22 mpg highway) with the automated transmission. The accumulated amount charcoal the aforementioned with the chiral transmission, but burghal and artery estimates are 16 mpg and 23 mpg, respectively. Those numbers are aloof beneath boilerplate for the segment. The fuel-economy champ of the Gladiator agenda will be the accessible diesel.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator joins the baby but aggressive midsize-truck segment. These are its rivals.
Chevrolet Colorado (base price: $21,495)/GMC Canyon (base price: $22,095): The General Motors twins action added V6 horsepower, and you can get both with a agent agent appropriate now, instead of accepting to delay for Jeep to add that advantage to the Gladiator. Both trucks are nicer to drive on the road, and the Chevy Colorado ZR2 offers austere off-road capability.
Ford Ranger (base price: $25,395): The Ranger is based on a archetypal advanced awash overseas, but has been heavily revamped for the U.S. It has added burden accommodation than the Jeep, as able-bodied as bigger on-road administration and ride. The Ranger can’t bout the Gladiator’s off-road capability, but it performs adequately able-bodied in the dirt. The Ranger Raptor Ford sells in added markets would be a afterpiece battling to the Jeep.
Honda Ridgeline (base price: $31,035): Honda is the contrarian of the midsize barter world. The Ridgeline is based on a car-like unibody platform, alms above ride affection and clarification to the body-on-frame Gladiator and other, added traditionally-designed trucks. However, the Ridgeline can’t bout the Gladiator’s towing and burden numbers, or its off-road capability.
Nissan Frontier (base price: $20,035): The current-generation Frontier dates aback to 2005 so, not surprisingly, it lags abaft the Gladiator and added competitors in tech, ammunition economy, and all-embracing refinement. But the Nissan is a bargain, and it offers an honest artlessness that can’t be begin in newer vehicles.
Toyota Tacoma (base price: $26,795): The Tacoma has a well-reserved acceptability for reliability, and has bigger on-road amenities than the Gladiator. However, the cab acquainted awkward and anachronous compared to the Jeep, and the Tacoma’s burden and towing abstracts are alone average. Toyota is rolling out some updates for the 2020 archetypal year, including a new infotainment arrangement accordant with Android Auto.
Jeep offers a three-year, 36,000-mile new-car assurance and five-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Because the Gladiator is a new model, crash-test ratings are not available. That additionally makes it difficult to adumbrate approaching reliability, although FCA cartage accept an all-embracing poor acceptability in this area.
We would go beeline to the top and adjustment a Rubicon. While $45,040 is a lot for a midsize truck, and best towing accommodation is bargain to 7,000 pounds, the Rubicon gets the off-road upgrades that accompany out the Gladiator’s accurate potential. The 4:10-ratio Dana 44 axles and bedrock balustrade are items any austere off-road enthusiast will appetite to fit to their Gladiator, so why not get them beeline from the factory?
The Rubicon comes banal with 33-inch tires, but Jeep acclaimed the fenders could board tires up to 35 inches in bore afterwards modification. So our aboriginal stop afterwards the dealership would apparently be a annoy boutique for some beyond rubber. Jeep will additionally action a 2.0-inch lift kit and tube doors through the Mopar genitalia catalog. Finally, we would fit a winch to get us unstuck from any agitation spots on the trail.
It’s hasty that Jeep took so continued to barrage the Gladiator. The aggregate of Wrangler adequacy and auto barter account is an accessible one. It’s additionally adamantine to exhausted the air-conditioned agency of a barter with a convertible top and disposable doors. It may be advised added for comedy than work, but the Gladiator is a aboveboard another to acceptable midsize trucks like the Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma.
