With standard heavy-duty Dana® 44 axles, skid plates and tow hooks, every 2020 Jeep® Gladiator proudly wears the Trail Rated® badge. To earn the badge, a vehicle must conquer a series of grueling tests over the toughest terrain to prove its ability to withstand harsh conditions and deliver incredible off-road capability.
Traction is key when off-roading so that every wheel works to drive the truck forward. Jeep® Brand 4x4 systems help to ensure the right tire has traction when it’s needed.
The Trail Rated® Jeep® Gladiator features a high air intake and special water sealing to help get you through creeks, streams and depths of up to 30-inches.
Thanks to precision steering and optimized wheelbases, Gladiator can swiftly veer around narrow gaps and maneuver around rocks, logs or tight spots.
Higher levels of articulation help keep all four tires on the ground to help ensure they remain stable and engaged.
Rubicon models get up to 11.1-inches of ground clearance between the underside of the truck and the terrain so you can drive over obstacles without underbody damage.
The Segment-Exclusive available forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera aids in off-road Navigation. Helpful gridlines display the path in front of the tires to help you pick the best line for any obstacle and an integrated washer lets you clean any mud splatter from the camera with the simple push of a button.
Fine-tune your adventure with Off-Road+. With a push of the button, you can adjust throttle, transmission shift points and traction control for peak performance on higher speed passes on sand dunes or low-speed rock crawling.
The standard heavy-duty Dana® 44 front and rear solid axles on the Gladiator have extra-thick tubes and forgings for exceptional strength, rigidity and durability.
Standard off-road necessities like heavy-duty forged front and rear tow hooks are perfect for helping less capable trucks get out of trouble.
High-strength steel skid plates help protect key components like the fuel tank and transfer case from damage caused by challenging trails.
The proven 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine brings 285 horsepower and maximum torque of 352 Nm ideal for the trails or hauling and towing cargo–plus Engine Stop-Start technology to maximize efficiency.
