The Los Angeles Auto Show is an exciting event for the automotive industry with automakers showing off their upcoming vehicles. While there were exciting debuts all around, we think it’s safe to say that Jeep® stole the show. Next year, here at Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT of Plymouth, you will be able to drive an all-new Jeep pickup truck—yes, pickup truck—the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. We couldn’t be more excited.
The last time you could head into a dealership and test drive a Jeep truck was more than 15 years ago with the Jeep Comanche. After spending such a long time away from the pickup truck segment, you’d think Jeep would make a splash with their return—and you’d be right. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator will sport up to 1,600 lb of payload capacity, and a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 7,650 lb.
Tim Kuniskis, Head of Jeep Brand – North America, didn’t mince words when he talked about this upcoming pickup powerhouse: “There is tremendous demand for this unique vehicle from our loyal Jeep customers and pickup truck buyers everywhere. Born from a rich and proud heritage of tough, dependable Jeep trucks, Gladiator combines rugged utility, versatility and functionality resulting in the most capable midsize truck ever.”
The Jeep engineers have ensured that the Jeep Gladiator will deliver more than just pure power. The suspension has been tuned to deliver optimal on-road handling and ride comfort, while maintaining incredible off-road capability. Fuel-efficient powertrains will help Jeep drivers travel farther, and more than 80 available advanced safety and security features will help provide peace of mind along the way.
