The Jeep® Brand began its 80th year by reflecting the different needs of adventure lovers, bringing back a classic and introducing future-facing technology. The 2020s started with a bang, setting the tone for a decade that had much more in store.
A KING IS CROWNED
In 2020, the Jeep® Brand made a huge impact on the pickup truck market, reintroducing the Gladiator after 32 years. Revolutionizing the look and capability of a truck, this vehicle took its class to new heights and destinations. 2020 included the release of an available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine and the announcement of Jeep 4xe, the Brand’s first-ever vehicle hybrid technology. Coming December 2020.
2020-PRESENT JEEP® GLADIATOR (JT)
Upon its release, the Gladiator immediately threw down the gauntlet, challenging every other pickup truck in its class with its incredible towing and hauling capacity.
The Gladiator broke new ground in the midsize pickup truck class in 2020 with legendary off-road capability. Featuring an available forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera, the Jeep® Brand’s first-ever Trail Rated® truck made navigating tough terrain easy with helpful gridlines that displayed a path for the front tires to follow.
Off-road trails weren’t enough for the Brand in 2020. Soon, the all-new Gladiator Mojave took unmistakable Jeep® Brand design deep into the dunes with its first-ever Desert Rated vehicle. Adding a truck that could handle the intense heat and invasive sand of the desert meant there weren’t many places in the world the Gladiator couldn’t play.
The Gladiator interior was built to make adventure happen. With precision-crafted details and high-quality materials, it offered comfort that invited drivers to take the scenic route wherever they traveled. Plus, it offered a suite of intuitive technology features, helmed by an advanced Uconnect® system and an available 8.4-inch touchscreen.
Uncharted territory never felt this safe and secure thanks to a collection of over 80 standard and available safety and security features. Whether traversing open highways or remote off-road trails, the 2020 Gladiator offered active and passive technology that put drivers in ultimate control of their journey–no matter the road.
