The 2020 Jeep® Gladiator has been named North American Truck of the Year by 50 automotive experts from across the United Stated and Canada in the 26th year of voting. The evaluators looked at design, features, safety, technology, value and the quality of the ride to make the decision.

The Power and Capability of a Truck

The Gladiator has a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine that delivers 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. The Gladiator can tow a maximum weight of 7,650 pounds when a tow package is installed, and it earns a respectable 23 mpg on the highway and 16 mpg in the city.* It also has Uconnect® technology, so you can access the entertainment, navigation, communication, and emergency services you need from just the touch of a button.

The Off-Road Expertise of a Jeep®

The wilderness is where the Jeep® Gladiator really shines. It is descended from the classic Jeep® Wrangler and has removable doors and windshield, lockable axles and an easy disconnect sway bar, as well as, 4×4 capability. A full complement of safety features protects you on the road or off. A back-up camera aides with parking, and blind spot and collision alerts keep you in touch with surrounding traffic.

Experience the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator for yourself when you stop by Ken Nelson for a test drive.
