There’s hardly another truck on the market that looks as cool, fun, and approachable as the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Part of that uniqueness is on its top; the Gladiator is the only convertible truck you can get today.
An all-new model for 2020, the Gladiator may look like a Wrangler Unlimited with a bed, but it rides on a unique frame and with a longer wheelbase. It shares one of the Wrangler’s powerplants, the 3.6-litre V6 with start-stop technology, making 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Like the Wrangler, the Gladiator comes apart. You can take off the doors, fold down the windshield, and take off the roof. It tows up to 7,650 pounds and hauls up to 1,600 pounds, but it’s more about lifestyle than commercial workhorse.
Jeep Gladiator Rubicons are made for off-road driving, with part-time four-wheel-drive and solid, heavy-duty front and rear axles, but the Rubicon adds a wider front and rear track, Fox monotube shocks, front and rear locking differentials, an electronically disconnecting front sway bar, and a 4.10:1 ratio. If you’re already very familiar with Jeep, here’s pretty much all you need to know.
If you’re new to Jeep and have never been in one, you also need to know that it performs just like the Wrangler. That means the ride is springy; there is road and wind noise. It also wanders on the highway, so you’re always making corrections to keep it in a straight line. But all of that isn’t meant as criticism — rather, it’s just reality. No vehicle can do everything. The Gladiator can climb a mountain without breaking a sweat, but to do that, it has live axles and off-road tires that don’t translate into super-smooth performance on asphalt. That’s the trade-off.
The Gladiator also has a true 4×4 system, meaning it can’t be driven in four-wheel-drive mode on hard or dry roads, which can damage the driveline if it binds up. There’s a lever for four-wheel drive and you have to pull hard on it because it’s mechanical; there’s no electronic dial here. And it’s a bit of work to get the roof and doors off — don’t think it’s a conventional convertible, where you simply push a button to raise or lower the top if the weather suddenly changes. Once the roof’s off, you’re committed. All of this is exactly what Jeep fans mean when they stick on a decal that says, “It’s a Jeep thing, you wouldn’t understand.”
And if you can accept all that, you likely will be very happy with it.
TRU -LOK DIFFERENTIALS – Front and rear electronic-locking differentials deliver maximum torque to both wheels, maintaining forward momentum for the ultimate in 4WD traction. An instrument panel-mounted rocker switch can lock either the rear or both axles.
ROCK-TRAC 4×4 SYSTEM – Rubicon rides with this extreme 4WD system. Its 4:1 low-gear-ratio transfer case allows Gladiator Rubicon to crawl at a low speed for greater control and increases the amount of torque available at the wheels.
OFF-ROAD+ – This advanced system will automatically adjust performance parameters for the terrain Gladiator is travelling on, whether you’re driving in 4HI (Sand/Mud) or 4LO (Rock Crawling). The system allows Gladiator to drive at high speeds in high range with the rear axle differential locker engaged. Press the Off-Road+ button, and the system communicates with the vehicle to identify the terrain you’re travelling over and then modifies ride specs so you’re travelling at optimum levels.
FOX SHOCKS – Race proven and factory-tuned precision valving provides a comfortable on-road ride and predictable off-road handling in even the toughest conditions.
UNDER ARMOUR – Heavy-gauge steel rock rails provide additional rocker panel and bed protection on Rubicon, while up to four skid plates/bars, made from lightweight high-strength steel, protect the underbody.
NO TOY LEFT BEHIND – Those who aspire to truly do more now have the means to make it happen with Best-in Class 4×4 towing of 7,650 lb. Bring along your family camper, loaded-up trailer or boat. This versatile truck bed is built to carry everything to every place you dream of reaching, thanks to its Best-in-Class 4×4 payload of 1,600 lb. The spray-in bedliner, tonneau cover and 115-volt power outlet all add more function to your fun. Lower the gate and take advantage of a 81.3 x 44.8-inch load floor (with tailgate down) that can accommodate a whole lot of ATV fun. Well-positioned tie-downs help secure your load. LED bed lighting illuminates nighttime on- and off-loading.
EASY-TO-REMOVE FREEDOM TOP 3-PIECE MODULAR HARDTOP – Lightweight and easy to take off, you can remove just the two front panels or all three sections. The rear glass incorporates a defroster and manual sliding window. Also comes with a Freedom Panel insulating headliner panels.
Every MotorTrend judge gave the Gladiator high marks for its unique design. With a wide body and an upright design, this Jeep’s proportions make it handsome from every angle. “Nothing else is like the Gladiator, and in a crowded market where brand allegiances ain’t what they used to be, I think standing out is a big plus,” senior features editor J. Lieberman said. Having a Jeep means you’re getting excellent off-road capabilities, and the Gladiator is no exception. Despite its long wheelbase, the Rubicon was the only truck that made it through most of our off-road course in two-wheel drive, showing impressive articulation and traction. Whether it was going through the moguls, up a set of stairs, or on a rocky hill climb, the Rubicon didn’t stop short. Talk about performance of intended function—the Gladiator hits the mark.
