In Leaked Pics, a Gladiator Enters the Arena

This, apparently, is it. The Jeep Wrangler pickup, which we simply discovered will resurrect the Gladiator identify from the dustbin of Jeep’s previous.

Particulars and really pleasing pictures of the mannequin, scheduled for an L.A. debut at the finish of the month, have been apparently posted to Fiat Chrysler’s media website for a temporary time, throughout which the now-renamed JeepGladiatorForum secured screenshots.

The pictures pull the string on the camo that’s coated the mannequin’s pre-manufacturing predecessors for nicely over a yr. Driving on a lengthened body borrowed from the Wrangler Limitless, the Gladiator is just about as we anticipated it: a 4-door Wrangler with a 5-foot mattress aft of the cabin.

The pictured showcase two trim ranges: prime-flight Rubicon and what seems to be a Sahara mannequin, shocking us with its full-size operating board. Aspect steps appeared extra possible. As this vehicle carries its personal improvement prices above and past the Wrangler JL line, Jeep isn’t more likely to supply a base Sport mannequin. The Gladiator is supposed to bolster FCA’s backside line and elevate the Jeep model to new heights, not supply truck lovers a enjoyable, low-priced truck runabout that excels in off-street circumstances. Jeep aficionados, who chomped at the bit for years hoping for a Wrangler pickup, will little question flip the Gladiator into a full-scale cash-printing machine.

One factor made clear by these photos is that, sure, you’ll have the ability to personal a convertible pickup when the Gladiator goes on sale subsequent yr as a 2020 mannequin. A convertible pickup with an obtainable stick, no much less. Take into consideration that for a second. Doorways and windshield fold or unbolt in the similar method as its non-pickup siblings, too.

As for specs, it’s reported that the pickup will include a standard three.6-liter V6 mated to both a six-velocity guide or eight-velocity automated. Optionally available is a diesel V6/eight-velocity combo. No point out of the Wrangler and Wrangler Limitless’s non-compulsory turbo 4. To be clear, that’s the second-era EcoDiesel engine, the output of which stays a thriller. Digital cease-begin shall be a feature of this engine when it turns into obtainable a while after the Gladiator’s launch.

Additionally on supply are the similar four×four methods present in different Wranglers, together with third-era Dana forty four axles, a restricted-slip diff, and an digital sway bar disconnect. Particulars scrounged from the now-disappeared webpage cites a towing capability of seven,650 kilos and a payload capability of as much as 1,600 kilos. FCA boasts of “unmatched” crawl ratios and as much as 30 inches of water fording functionality.

One factor that is still unknown is the mannequin’s beginning price. A Wrangler Limitless Sahara carries a pre-vacation spot MSRP of $38,295, with the Rubicon mannequin going for $forty one,445. Whereas the new pickup is predicted to hold a premium, opinions differ on simply how excessive the factor may begin. The mid-40k range appears doubtless.
