The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator is unlike anything that has come before it. In this car review, we want to show Rapid City, Sioux Falls, Belle Fourche, and Bismarck shoppers how it can transform your drive.

We'll cover this midsize pickup truck's performance, towing capacity, and even the trim levels you can choose from. Engineered to leave the pavement behind, the Gladiator is ready for some rough terrain. If you want to learn more about this legendary ride, drop us a line at Liberty CDJRF today!

2020 Gladiator MPG

Under the hood of the 2020 Gladiator, you'll find the tried-and-true 3.6L Pentastar® V6. This engine kicks out up to 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque-perfect for the trails and towing alike.

That powerplant comes equipped with Engine Stop-Start technology to boost your efficiency. It works by shutting your engine off when the vehicle comes to a complete stop. Take your foot off the brake pedal, and the engine will roar back to life, ready to power you forward.

How efficient is this Jeep truck? The Gladiator earns an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 16 city/23 highway MPG with the standard manual transmission. Upgrade to the smooth-shifting automatic and see up to 17 city/22 highway MPG.

Jeep Gladiator Towing Capacity

The Jeep Gladiator breaks the mold in many respects, but it still feels like a traditional truck in other ways. One of those ways is towing-that muscular engine is quite capable. It can tow up to 7,650 pounds when properly equipped. You can trailer a boat or small camper with ease when you have that kind of power.

Of course, we must mention this truck's incredible off-road abilities. The Gladiator is the only Trail Rated® pickup truck ever, and it's ready to conquer the toughest trails.1 Heavy-duty Dana® 44 axles, skid plates, and tow hooks add to the Gladiator model's monster capability.

Rubicon trim levels get up to 11.1 inches of ground clearance, so you can drive over all sorts of obstacles. A high air intake and special sealing help you ford through streams and creeks of up to 30 inches deep.

Jeep Gladiator Trim Levels

Which Jeep Gladiator trim level is perfect for you? The Gladiator comes in four trim levels: Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon. Each has its own appeal. The Sport offers all the basics, including a Uconnect® 3 infotainment system. Upgrade to the Sport S for more available options.

The Overland takes things up a notch with trim-exclusive premium cloth seats, as well as optional leather. Uconnect® 4 comes standard with a larger touchscreen, and a navigation system is available as well.

As you might expect, the Rubicon is the top of the line for off-roading ability. While every Gladiator can tackle the trails, the Rubicon takes it to the next level. Rock rails and front/rear locking differentials help you conquer the most challenging terrain.
