Summary

Jeep Gladiator (JT) is a pickup truck based on the JL Jeep Wrangler. Like the Wrangler, the Jeep Gladiator uses a traditional body-on-frame construction with solid front and rear axles for uncompromised offroad capabilities. Also like the Wrangler, the Gladiator is a convertible, with both a soft top and a hard top on offer.

The Gladiator has just gone on sale in the States. Jeep hasn't committed to bringing the Gladiator to the UK. But, with right-hand drive models confirmed for other markets – and a 257bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel arriving in 2020 – the omens are good. So, should Jeep UK lobby hard for the Gladiator?

  • V6 diesel arrives in 2020

Gladiator Mojave gets Jeep's Off-Road Plus setting, which is also available on the Rubicon. Up front, there's a 1-inch lift compared with a Gladiator Rubicon, as well as a hydraulic Fox jounce shock. The Mojave's four-wheel-drive system is upgraded to handle higher off-road speeds.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent off-road manners

Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The Jeep Gladiator pickup gets a new diesel engine option for 2021. It's the same 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 you'll find in the Jeep Wrangler and Ram 1500. With its $6,000 premium over the standard powertrain, is it good enough to warrant that extra cost?

Pros[**]
  • Excellent off-roading performance
  • Good off-road capability
  • Lots of standard equipment
Cons[**]
  • Fuel economy isn't great

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is one of the most anticipated vehicle launches of the year. Jeep hasn't made a pickup truck since 1992, when the Cherokee-based Comanche ceased production. The Gladiator is available only with a 5.0-foot pickup box, with a cargo capacity of 35.5 cubic feet.

Pros[**]
  • Lots of interior space for a midsize truck
  • Good off-road capability
  • Lots of standard equipment
Cons[**]
  • Hard top roof can be a bit stiff
  • Not available in four trim levels
