Blurred footage shows jeeps announced Wrangler with cargo area: The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is probably the most off-road pick-up on the market. He should come in 2020.
26 years ago, Jeep built the last production vehicle with the cargo area. Since the end of the Comanche, there were pickups at the American SUV farmer only as concept cars. An aged study has been particularly frequent in recent months by brand fans: The Gladiator from 2005 was an extended version of the then Wrangler (TJ). And served as an orientation for those who created renderings to a pick-up version of the current Wrangler model.
Few were not – at the latest since the Wrangler was officially confirmed with cargo area, fan platforms are full of it. But now appeared in a forum for the first time official graphics. Whether they are guaranteed to be real? The fanboys are sure. Also in terms of the name: The presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show end of November Wrangler derivative is called 2020 Jeep Gladiator – just like once the study. But no one argues with historical consistency.
Rather with the fact that Jeep itself has published optics and initial information. Unintentionally and only for a moment. On the press page, the pictures shown here should have appeared, as well as the nomenclature, including a reference to a market launch in 2020. When Jeep noticed the early start, footage and information were already backed up to private hard drives. One of the first consequences was the renaming of the platform in “Gladiator Forum”. The operators originally counted as much of the industry with the name Jeep Scrambler.
In any case, the model will probably tower over the 4.88-meter long Wrangler with five doors – the shorter three-door anyway. Until the end of the passenger compartment, it largely corresponds to the model. As in the Wrangler, there should optionally be a folding roof
2020 Jeep Gladiator Performance; THE MOST POWERFUL PICKUP ON THE MARKET
The inscription on the side of the model in red reveals: The Gladiator will give it with veritable climbing ability. Finally,” Rubicon ” refers to the off-road equipment line. The all-wheel-drive Wrangler then includes transverse locks and a second, shorter gear reduction ratio to the scope of equipment. In this configuration, the gladiator would be the most off-road pickup in the German market. Although the main sales (the late FCA boss Sergio Marchionne once called the goal of 100,000 annual copies) will be accounted for by the US, the model could appeal to many Europeans.
2020 Jeep Gladiator Engine Specs
We expect the same range of engines for the old continent as in the Wrangler: Here is a 200-hp 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel entry. There is also a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with 273 hp. Starting in 2020, a plug-in hybrid variant will be sufficient, theoretically enough early for the proclaimed launch of the gladiator.
