Meet the all-new Jeep Gladiator
The first Jeep pick up dates back to 1947, when Willys Overland introduced the one-ton truck with four-wheel drive based on the CJ-2A. Today, after 27 years the Jeep brand returns to the pickup segment.
A one-of-a-kind vehicle, the new Jeep Gladiator evolves the iconic Wrangler formula by adding increased levels of versatility, freedom and superior on-road driving dynamics to its unmatched all-terrain capability. Its unrivalled off-road prowess comes courtesy of the Command-Trac and Rock-Trac 4x4 systems, third-generation Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, segment-exclusive sway-bar disconnect and 32-inch off-road tires.
The Jeep design team kept the legendary seven-slot grille seen on Wrangler but widened the grille slots for an additional air intake to assist with the towing capacity. The top of the keystone-shaped grille is gently swept back to enhance aerodynamics.
The all-new Jeep Gladiator engine range offers the proven 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine - available only in markets outside Europe including the Middle East.
The FCA US 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine delivers 285 horsepower and 347 Nm of torque and features Engine Stop-Start (ESS) as standard equipment. It is engineered to provide a broad torque band with a focus on low-end torque – an essential trait needed for extreme off-roading.
The new Jeep Gladiator offers an eight-speed automatic transmission, enabling the vehicle to optimize engine output while on the trails or enjoying smooth, efficient power delivery at highway speeds.
Built in Toledo, Ohio, the new Jeep Gladiator is offered in three different trim levels: Sport, Overland and Rubicon. It will arrive in Middle East showrooms in the first half of 2020.
