The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is a vehicle that intends to shake up what it means to be a truck. Pairing the off-road capabilities you expect from Jeep with the towing and truck bed that you want from a mid-size truck, the Gladiator is a special kind of vehicle. Here are our five favorite features of this epic Jeep that you just have to check out.
5 Favorite Features of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator
1. A Truck Bed on a Proper Jeep
Our favorite part of this Jeep is the most obvious difference between it and every other Jeep that you know: the truck bed. The Jeep Gladiator has a 5-foot truck bed that can handle 1700 lbs of payload. So you can haul what you need when you need it in your Gladiator.
2. Real Off-Road Capabilities
Some people might fear that Jeep has forsaken its off-road pedigree to cash in on the lucrative truck market, but luckily this is not the case. The Jeep is still a more than a capable off-road vehicle, especially when compared to anything else with a truck bed.
Inside the Gladiator, expect to find all of the tools that you will need to have your off-road fun. This includes locking front and rear differentials, a disconnecting front sway bar, and different situation modes to handle every off-road eventuality.
3. Class-Leading Towing
One might expect that Jeep has had to do a lot of compromising to get this Jeep turned into a truck. But in many ways, it manages to beat its other truck competitors as a truck as well. The most impressive figure that belongs to the Jeep Gladiator is its class-leading 7,650 lbs towing power. So whether it’s a boat or a trailer, your Jeep can get the job done.
4. Easy to Live With
One Achilles heel of many off-roaders is their driving ability on proper roads. Although the Gladiator is not going to win many races, it is still an incredibly comfortable drive when it’s on the pavement. This makes the Gladiator more than just a great off-road vehicle, but also a fantastic day-to-day car as well.
5. Impressive Tech
The Gladiator also comes with a bit of tech to help you get the most out of your Jeep. This includes features that make your life a little easier, like blind-spot monitoring and a navigation system. It also has things that can make your drive more fun, like connected CarPlay and AndroidAuto. They might not be the most necessary parts of your Jeep, but their inclusion helps sweeten an already excellent offer from Jeep.
The Jeep Gladiator is the kind of truck we have all always secretly wanted. It offers us the freedom to go where we want and to take whatever we need with us.
