2020 Jeep Gladiator Review – Video

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is one of the most highly anticipated vehicles to launch in years.

It melds the off-road capability of a four-door Wrangler with the versatility of a midsize pickup truck. Now you can do some hardcore rock crawling while carrying a load of friends and all their gear. Really, this product is a no-brainer; it’s a better combination than chocolate and peanut butter.

People have been clamoring for Jeep to build a pickup ever since their last offering, the Comanche, was discontinued in 1992. Even though this legendary automotive brand has been out of the game for nearly 30 years, Gladiator is the latest in a long line of Jeep trucks reaching all the way back to the ‘40s.









<h2>More Than Just a Wrangler with a Bed</h2>



Even though this rig is essentially a Wrangler with a bed, engineers did far more than just tack weld a cargo box on the back and call it a day. In fact, the vehicle’s frame, its very foundation is all new. This critical component had to be reworked to meet the towing and hauling requirements of the midsize-truck segment.

Compared to a Wrangler Unlimited, the new Jeep Gladiator is nearly 30 inches (75.2 cm) longer, clocking in at 218 (553.7 cm) from bumper to bumper. Accordingly, the wheelbase has been stretched significantly, spanning an extra 19.4 inches (49.3 cm), totaling 137.3 (34.9 cm).

Long overdue.

Unfortunately, based on the 4-door and with an improved frame, its no longer what a pick-up truck should be. We need a pick-up that is designed for actual work. A vehicle that can be abused and can handle the abuse. A vehicle we don't mind scratching and denting. When the price is north of $35K, nobody is going to risk using for actual work.

In my case I just got a utility trailer, roughly 4x10. It can haul furniture, lawn 'tractor', or brush to the dump. It cost about $34,500 less than the Gladiator. With my Wrangler pulling it, it will go anywhere the Wrangler will go. Now what will I do with all that money I saved? (As Dagwood said to Blondie, "Show it to me.") LOL
