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.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
Gladiator is no taller or wider than a Wrangler – and at 5,539mm long, it's only 200mm longer than the Mercedes X-Class. That length means there's a 1,531mm load bay, as well as plenty of room inside for five people to travel long distances in comfort. Unladen, it doesn't have the uncomfortable bounce of many pick-ups, with a ride that's compliant over all but the very worst surfaces. The 3.6-litre V6 isn't there for its sprinting abilities, but it's whisper-quiet.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The Gladiator Rubicon EcoDiesel is rated to return 22 miles per gallon combined. Diesel engines are great for towing, but due to some engine cooling issues, Jeep recommends pulling a maximum of 6,000 pounds. The Gladiator has no problem handling just about any off-roading scenario, including rocks and ruts.

  • Excellent fuel economy
  • No automatic transmission

Sentiment Score[*] 47%
Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator joins the small but competitive midsize-truck segment. Jeep only had fuel economy estimates for the 3.6-liter gasoline V6 ready in time for publication. The 4:10-ratio Dana 44 axles and rock rails are items any serious off-road enthusiast will want to fit.

  • Excellent off-road capability
  • Good on-road manners
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Cramped and dated cabin
  • Poor ride quality
