Jeep Gladiator 2020 review – How good is the Jeep's latest pickup off-road? | Autocar
Jeep Gladiator 2020: Exterior
Looking at the Jeep Gladiator 2020, you’ll notice that it shares many styling cues with the Wrangler; it’s very muscular and angular for that utilitarian look.
Like the Wrangler, the Gladiator can go anywhere
The same goes for the interior, with the flat dashboard and surfaces dominated by tough plastic, consistent with projecting an image of robustness.
Despite the toughness it exudes, the Gladiator also has sophisticated features like voice command and a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. US-spec models also offer remote engine start capability.
Despite having a sizable cargo bed, the Gladiator didn't compromise on passenger capacity
Beyond appearances though, the Jeep Gladiator 2020 shares the same platform as the Jeep Wrangler JL, even offering the same transmission choices: a six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic gearbox
The lone engine option is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, rated at 285 horsepower and 352 Nm of torque. Complemented by a robust frame, powerplant enables the Gladiator to tow more than 3,000 kgs.

Jeep Gladiator 2020: Pricing Speculations
As of this writing, Jeep Philippines has yet to release pricing details for the Gladiator. Note that the pickup is actually more expensive than the Wrangler in the U.S. market. But with our current tax laws favoring pickups, there’s a chance that the Gladiator will be priced more competitively when it's released here.
