    Jeep Gladiator leaked ahead of LA Autoshow

    UPDATED

    2020 Jeep Gladiator leaks online ahead of LA Auto Show debut
    We have images, specifications, and a whole lot more

    This is it! At least, we think this is it. According to a posting on JeepGladiatorForum.com, these images and texts for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck were briefly posted on Fiat Chrysler's media site, and at least one enterprising individual managed to snag them before they were taken down. And, while everything is pretty much as we (and everyone else) have been expecting, it's also extremely big news and confirms some important information.

    According to the leaked document, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that can be mated to an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. We'd wager it'll offer the same 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque as in other Wrangler applications. Bigger news is the optional 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6. If it's in the same state of tune as it is in the Grand Cherokee, the Gladiator's diesel will spin out 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.

    ORIGINAL POST

    Jeep pickup truck apparently will be named Jeep Gladiator
    Scrambler sounded like a breakfast sandwich, anyway
    GREG RASA
    Nov 9th 2018
    autoblog.com

    For months we — we, meaning the automotive world in general — have been operating under the assumption that the Jeep pickup truck would be named Scrambler. For those of us who always thought that sounded like a breakfast at Denny's, vindication: According to Jeep Scrambler Forum — yes, they were so sure, they named themselves that — the truck will carry a different name: Jeep Gladiator.

    Gladiator, we salute you.

    Jeep Scrambler Forum says it'll roll with the changes: "Stay tuned as we'll be making the switch to JeepGladiatorForum.com in the coming days (smiley face, thumbs up)."

    Looks good, especially with the hardtop.

    As for the name, it's arguably more fitting name for the brand (though I'm sure there will be people who will be upset at the switch).

    I wish the bed was shorter and more proportional. It could have been so awesome.

    Chrysler is so far superior to FoMo or GMC regarding naming of vehicles.

    Gladiator. Oh!! Oh, how frightening!!!!

    This critter will sell like free money.

    This thing will sell like hotcakes with it being a combination of two hot sellers: pickups and Wranglers.

    I think it looks pretty good for what it is, a Wrangler pickup.

    Agreed, the truck looks good. The name just moves to a smaller vehicle in their lineup. Not really any different than when they went from naming a full-size SUV a Cherokee & then applying the name to the downsized 1984 model.

    Re: Jeep Gladiator leaked ahead of LA Autoshow

    Powertrain options were also leaked, and they will fall in line with the JL Wrangler. That means you’ll be offered either a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or possibly the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 that will be made available in 2020.

    Both engine options can be coupled to an eight-speed automatic, while only the gasoline one can accept the six-speed manual.

    That means solid Dana axles front and back with available locking differentials, optional electronic sway-bar disconnect, and the ability to ford up to 30 inches of water. Regular models will come with Jeep's Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system, while the Rubicon (yes, there will be a Rubicon model) gets the advanced Rock-Trac setup, plus forward-facing off-road cameras.


    This will make Jeepster Persons as happy as bugs in rugs.

    Not feeling it either; AEV (which is only a couple miles from my house) has been making these things for the better part of a decade, no?
