The 2020 Jeep® Gladiator Altitude edition will be available to customers soon. With the same off-road capability as the Gladiator Sport S model, the Altitude has a “blacked-out” appearance that customers have been asking for.
Black accents for flair
The Altitude offers many black accents including headlamp rings, badging and hard top, as well as seats, stitching and instrument panel. This dark edition starts at $40,340.
The Jeep®quality that the brand is known for
The Gladiator is a pickup truck with the iconic Jeep® look that is far more than skin deep. Altitude will feature a fold-down windshield and removable top and doors, as well as a reinforced body, heavy-duty axles, extended-life brakes and tough rear suspension that make the Gladiator the only Trail-Rated pickup truck available.
Power and convenience on every drive
A 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine delivering 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque with an eight-speed automatic transmission provides the Gladiator with plenty of power. Some of the convenient options are a detachable Bluetooth speaker located in the rear seat, a 5-foot, reinforced cargo bed featuring a tailgate that can be configured in three different positions and a 115-volt/400-watt power outlet and LED lighting system. The Gladiator is great for weekend trips to the mountains or tailgating at the game, and a tonneau cover is available to keep everything dry in case of rain.
U.S. News & World Report recently named the 2020 Ram 1500 as one of the best new cars in 2020 to be equipped with Apple CarPlay®. The editors appreciated the truck’s well-appointed cabin and innovative infotainment system.
The 2020 Ram 1500 comes standard with wireless phone connectivity and six speakers for listening to your favorite music. Its available Uconnect® 12.0 system with Navigation has a large 12-inch touch screen, which you can easily see from the driver’s seat. The system also features split-screen capability and full-screen Navigation so you can more easily get to your destinations.
Through the system, you can utilize Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. These features allow you to call a family member, respond to a text message, put on a playlist and access your favorite smartphone apps on the go.
The 2020 Ram 1500 packs tons of other smart technologies too, like the available active noise cancellation system, which makes for a quieter ride. Plus, opt for the 7-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display to stay up to date on key information.
The Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited is not only great for your next outdoor adventure, but this model is also designed to reduce your carbon footprint. The latest generation of the Wrangler Unlimited comes with an available 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, which reduces emissions by an impressive 15 percent compared to previous model years.
This 2.0-liter powertrain generates 270 horsepower, and it’s now offered on vehicles other than the Wrangler, such as the Jeep® Cherokee. The 15 percent reduction in emissions is enough to account for the “carbon sequestration” of 16.5 acres of U.S. forest over an entire year. In short, the Wrangler Unlimited is perfect for those who love the environment, whether you’re off-roading near Dixon, IL or driving on the highway.
“This is the outcome we expect when we launch a new vehicle,” says Mitch Clauw, FCA Vice President and Head of Global Pre-Programs and Program Management. “In all our processes, the mitigation of environmental impact is a baked-in consideration.”
Whichever version of the Jeep® Wrangler you prefer, you’re sure to find the right model to suit your lifestyle and preferences here at Ken Nelson Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram. Stop by to test-drive the current Wrangler models we have in stock.

you and your kids can use to build towers and houses. Maybe together you can
make a whole city!
Kids, especially the younger ones, are easily
fascinated by simple magic tricks. Teach yourself a few and put on a show, then
show your young audience how it works.
Games & Puzzles
These can be a bit “basic” to us adults, but I
think we take things like card games and puzzles for granted. To a kid, these
can be major mind-benders that help their brains develop.

As you plan a spring filled with wilderness treks and road
trips, follow these Jeep®
cleaning tips to freshen up your ride and get it ready for a season of
Wash the underbody:
Whether you’ve been driving on salty slush, mud, or sand, the underbody of your
is probably filthy from winter. If you let this grime hang around, it can
easily cause rusting and other long-term damage. Thoroughly spray the underbody
with a power washer so your muddy spring outings don’t just add an extra layer
Protect the exterior:
Give the exterior of your Jeep® a good spring cleaning, and don’t
forget to scrub the tires while you’re at it. Consider adding a coat of wax afterward
to help shield your paint job from the elements.
Clean the floors and
cargo area: The floors and cargo area of your Jeep® have probably accumulated plenty of
dirt and debris over the winter. First, get rid of any trash or litter that’s
piled up. Then, take out the mats and clean them. Make sure you give the floor
a good vacuuming before putting the mats back in. To protect your floors, you
can also purchase a variety of Mopar® accessories like slush mats and cargo
With these cleaning tips, your Jeep® will be in great shape to go wherever you want to take it. For even more spring readiness, bring it to the service department here at Ken Nelson and we’ll help you get caught up on scheduled maintenance.
