It is based on the 2019 Jeep Wrangler, primarily designed as a rival for Toyota Tacoma, Ford Ranger and Chevrolet Colorado. Of course, significant rivals include Nissan Frontier, GMC Canyon and Honda Ridgeline.

Exterior and interior design
Body design is a combination of a high-strength steel frame with lightweight materials, while a cargo box is complete of steel. As the main newspapers we highlight a two-inch lift kit, a spray-in bed liner and a truck bed storage system. Built-in is a seven-slot grille with larger air intakes, a revised rear bumper and a wider tailgate. In addition to the fixed roof, we offer three cloth options, while the spare wheel is below the cargo bed. Also, there are round front and square taillights (optional LED lighting). In the cabin are cloth or leather seats and telescopic steering wheel, air-conditioning or automatic climate control. In front of the driver is a 3.5 or 7 inch screen, while the center console has a 7 or 8.4 inch touchscreen, with the fourth generation UConnect infotainment system.

In any case, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will be more expensive than the 2019 Jeep Wrangler SUV. We expect an initial price of around $ 30,000, while the most expensive model will cost around $ 60,000. It will be available at the beginning of next year, after which the first models will be in sales outlets.
