Interested in a Jeep Gladiator?
    Let us help you take the next step

    The Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux are about to get more competition from the USA.

    The Ram 1500 is already on hand to offer buyers something bigger and V8-powered, now the Jeep Gladiator is here with looks from a Wrangler, a raft of off-road kit, and the availability of a folding soft top.

    The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is available only as a dual-cab ute, with one powertrain (for now) and three trim levels. Prices range from $75,450 before on-road costs for the Overland to $86,450 before on-road costs for the Launch Edition.

    The Gladiator is the first ute from Jeep since it discontinued the XJ Cherokee-based Comanche in 1992 and the first ute sold in Australia since the brand retired the J10 in the early 1980s. It’s also the only convertible ute currently on sale in Australia.

    All 2020 Jeep Gladiator models use a naturally-aspirated 3.6-litre petrol V6 engine. It produces 209kW of power and 347Nm of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    All Gladiators are four-wheel drive but there are two different systems. The Overland uses Jeep’s Selec-Trac on-demand system while the Rubicon and Launch Edition upgrade to the Rock-Trac on-demand system.

    Rock-Trac adds locking front and rear differentials, Fox Performance shocks, and a 4.10 rear axle ratio, plus the ability to electronically disconnect the front stabiliser bar.
