What are the Engines Available? 
At first, there will be a single-engine option available for the Gladiator, a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque paired to a 6-speed manual transmission, with an 8-speed automatic transmission available if you choose. Eventually, there will be the option of a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 that makes 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. The 8-speed automatic transmission will be the option for the V6. Towing and payload capacity are where the Gladiator shines as the powerful pickup can tow 7,650 pounds while having a payload capacity of 1,600 pounds. 

How Does the Gladiator Handle? 
With a 5-link coil suspension system at both front and back, the Jeep Gladiator also provides control-arm setups, with dampers working hard for a smoother ride on pavement. On the highway, the rhythmic drive doesn't give a ton of vibration. The Sport and Overland provide 32-inch Bridgestone tires while the Rubicon comes with 33-inch tires with Falken all-terrain design. Also includes on the Sport and Overland models is Jeep's signature Command-Trac 4x4 system which is standard and delivers a 2-speed transfer case and heavy-duty Dana 44 front and rear axles. The top-level Rubicon provides you with the Rock-Trac 4x4 system, which includes those Dana 44 axles but also locking differentials and an electronic sway-bar disconnect feature, making it perfect for off-roading. The low torque systems are as good as they are on the Wrangler and with the firm grip of the tires and a stout torque the powerful Rubicon makes easy work of even the most challenging terrain. 

There is so much more you can add to the 2020 Gladiator to make it even more powerful. For instance, the Sport S trim and above gives you the option of a Trailer Tow or the even more capable Max Tow package that includes 4.10 axle ratios. The Gladiator also gives you the option of a Class II bumper hitch with a 4,500-pound tow capacity, anti-sway trailer control, and a combination of four-and-seven-pin trailer plug. This only scratches the surface of what you can do with the Jeep Gladiator!
