The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is shaping up to be one bad ass pickup truck. We just learned that the Gladiator will feature a diesel engine in 2020. Hell yeah!
26 years ago Jeep offered a truck and we are ecstatic they are bringing back a pickup into their lineup.
We have aggrigated some of the best videos and pictures of the new Jeep Gladiator. Check it out!
“Propelling this chassis initially will be the 3.6-liter gasoline V6 from the Wrangler with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. It makes 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
In 2020, Jeep will start offering a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 that is a thoroughly redesigned version of the engine found in the outgoing Ram EcoDiesel. It’s down in power compared to the gas engine at 260 horses, but it more than makes up for it with 442 pound-feet of torque. The only other diesel in this small to midsize truck segment is the Colorado and Canyon diesel trucks. Their diesel four-cylinder engines only make 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
All Gladiators with either engine send their power through a selectable part-time four-wheel drive system. Fuel economy for either engine option has yet to be announced.
On the subject of capability, the Gladiator has some impressive towing and payload numbers. Maximum towing capacity is 7,650 pounds.”
