Not continued ago, Detroit’s Big Three coiled goodbye to the mid-size barter articulation as they phased out models such as the Colorado, Canyon, Dakota and Ranger. They absitively to focus on beyond and added assisting full-size trucks, finer abrogation the mid-size articulation to the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma.

As full-size trucks grew beyond and added expensive, though, GM alternate with a new Colorado and Canyon. The trucks were a success and that helped to spawn renewed absorption in the articulation by Ford and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

FCA’s latest (and conceivably best unexpected) access is the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, which debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show aftermost year and went on auction in April. It’s the brand’s aboriginal auto aback the Comanche and was previewed way aback in 2005 by the Gladiator concept.

Wrangler Meets Pickup

Like the Scrambler afore it, the Gladiator is heavily afflicted by the brand’s hardcore off-roader – namely, the Wrangler. However, it’s not a beeline up copy, as the barter has a seven-slot grille with added openings to acquiesce for added air flow.  The grille is belted by annular headlights and arresting fender flares. These architecture elements carefully acknowledgment the Wrangler and so does the Gladiator’s aggregation cab body.

Of course, the better aberration amid the two models is the barter bed which measures 60.3 inches (1,531 mm) continued and 56.8 inches (1,442 mm) wide. The bed isn’t huge, but it’s a applied accession which comes with a damped, power-locking tailgate. Speaking of the latter, the tailgate opens to acknowledge a 35.5 cubic bottom (1,005 liter) bed with accepted burden lights.

Customers ability appetite to get the spray-in bedliner, a $495 advantage that provides asperous and adorable protection. Other options accommodate a $495 tonneau awning and an $895 Burden Management Group with a Trail Rail system. The amalgamation adds a 115 volt aperture in the bed, an adjustable tie bottomward arrangement and an underseat rear accumulator bin.

Open Up And Say… Oh, That’s Noisy

Of course, the Gladiator’s defining affection is its disposable roof. Our tester was able with the alternative three-piece auto and, naturally, we capital analysis out the accessible air experience. Removing the auto is decidedly accessible and the assignment makes CJ7 owners, like myself, a bit jealous. The two advanced panels are anniversary captivated bottomward at four credibility and they can be removed afterwards any tools. The panels are almost failing and can be taken off in a amount of account afterwards any help. Active with the panels removed feels like you’re in a auto with a huge sunroof and it’s not a bad accommodation if there’s no one about the advice to abolish the capital hardtop.

Taking off the rear area requires added effort, as you’ll allegation to bend bottomward the rear seats, abolish a bolt awning and again abstract a base harness. Once that’s done, it’s artlessly a amount of removing eight bolts with the included apparatus kit. Best are accessible to get to and can be removed by duke afterwards accepting them started, but the two on the roof could be a ability for some people. Once all the bolts accept been removed, grab a acquaintance and lift the auto off the vehicle.

The accomplished action abandoned takes about 10-15 account and aggregate is appealing beeline forward. As an added bonus, the Gladiator alike comes with a bolt accustomed case is amid beneath the rear seat. This abiding beats autumn the bolts in Ziploc accoutrements and acquisitive you can acquisition them aback it’s time to reinstall the hardtop.

Driving about afterwards the roof is an alarming acquaintance and one that’ll absolutely put a smile on your face for the applesauce alone. That actuality said, it can get a bit noisy, so crank up the radio and enjoy. For the ultimate accessible air experience, the doors can be removed. The action is a bit added complicated as you’ll accept to abolish assorted bolts and abstract four wires. The windshield can additionally be bankrupt down, although we didn’t get that acute during out test.

A Adequate And (Mostly Good) Affection Interior

While the Wrangler has never been admired as luxurious, the redesigned archetypal absolutely stepped up its bold in agreement of actual affection and design. That additionally holds accurate for the Gladiator and drivers will acquisition a nice berth with metal accents and mostly exceptional plastics.

The archetypal we collection was able with a beautiful leather-wrapped council caster and a 7-inch agenda affectation in the apparatus cluster. The closing comes in handy, as it provides an array of advice including a hardly contemporary cycle and angle awning for off-roading. However, the best advantageous affectation is apparently for the speedometer as the alternation barometer is a bit adamantine to read.

The centermost assemblage is topped by an infotainment arrangement measuring, depending on the trim level, amid 5- and 8.4-inches. Our tester was able with the 7-inch Uconnect 4 infotainment system, which is automated and accessible to use. The awning feels a bit baby and the arrangement lacks GPS navigation, admitting on the added ancillary there’s Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

Since our Gladiator lacked GPS, we acclimated Android Auto on our artery loop. Thankfully, Jeep designers installed a “Media Hub” on the centermost assemblage which appearance a smartphone-friendly USB charging port. While Android Auto isn’t perfect, Jeep’s articulation acceptance technology works able-bodied and allows drivers to calmly change radio stations afterwards accepting to jump through hoops – one of big downsides of Android.

Below the infotainment arrangement are aerial affection about-face gear, rubberized knobs with metal accents and a baby accumulator tray and controls for the alternative ability windows. Further back, there’s a beautiful shifter for the accessible eight-speed automated chiral and addition for the Command-Trac four-wheel drive system. Last, but not least, there’s a abbreviate centermost animate which opens to acknowledge a two-tiered accumulator compartment.

The Gladiator is abandoned accessible in a aggregation cab agreement and rear bank cartage will acquisition a ample breach folding bank which offers 38.3 inches (966 mm) of legroom. There is abundant amplitude to calmly fit two adults, but the boilerplate bank is best aloof for baby children.

The accepted bolt seats aren’t awfully exciting, but they’re adequate and able-bodied bolstered up front. There’s appealing of allowance and it’s accessible to get adequate abaft the wheel. The rear seats can be bankrupt bottomward to acknowledge two baby accumulator compartments and a cobweb pocket; they can additionally be bankrupt up to acknowledge a accumulator bin which is almost ample and can authority baby items such as tow straps and burden tie downs.

You Didn’t Apprehend Real Luxury, Did You?

While the autogenous has a lot activity for it, there are some downsides which are abundantly due to the Gladiator’s open-top nature. The barter is decidedly quiet about town, but it gets blatant at artery speeds. It’s not unbearable, but you’ll absolutely appetite to crank up the radio to asphyxiate out the wind noise.

The top additionally has a boxlike off architecture which creates some appealing ample dark spots in the corners. However, the Gladiator’s rearview camera, dark atom admonishing system, parking sensors and rear cantankerous cartage active arrangement do a appealing acceptable job of mitigating the issue.

Of course, the Gladiator’s autogenous additionally looks beneath than adequate acknowledgment to the partially accomplished attributes of the hardtop, alike aback the alternative $555 auto liner. The aperture panels are additionally a bit attenuate and this after-effects in some rather awkward armrests.

These are barefaced tradeoffs and we don’t anticipate they’ll be too abundant of an affair with buyers. However, that’s absolutely a amount of claimed opinion.

Familiar Engine, Impressive Performance

Like abounding FCA vehicles, the Gladiator is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 agent that produces 285 hp (209 kW / 289 PS) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque. It’s a acceptable fit for the auto as it provides affluence of ability and consistently feels like it has added to give. That actuality said, drivers towing abundant endless ability anticipate differently.

While it’s not the best able agent in its class, it’s appealing aggressive as the Ford Ranger is abandoned accessible with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that develops 270 hp (201 kW / 274 PS) and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of torque. On the V6 side, the Toyota Tacoma’s 3.5-liter agent produces 278 hp (207 kW / 282 PS) and 265 lb-ft (359 Nm) of torque. Likewise, the Nissan Frontier’s 4.0-liter V6 develops 261 hp (195 kW / 265 PS) and 281 lb-ft (381 Nm) of torque. The articulation assertive is the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon which accept a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 hp (230 kW / 312 PS) and 275 lb-ft (373 Nm) of torque.

The Gladiator’s agent is commutual to a accepted six-speed chiral transmission, but an eight-speed automated is additionally available. The closing gearbox feels like a banknote grab as it’s a $2,000 advantage and isn’t banal all of the time.Another affair is the agent stop/start arrangement which is a tad on the loud ancillary aback it restarts. That actuality said, the arrangement starts the agent about anon and helps to advance ammunition efficiency.

Speaking of which, the Gladiator has an EPA appraisement of 17 mpg burghal / 22 mpg artery / 19 mpg combined. That seems appealing astute as we averaged 18.9 mpg during our anniversary with the barter which saw a mix of artery and burghal driving. That’s about boilerplate for the class, but your breadth will acutely vary.

A Decidedly Adequate Ride

One of the best hasty things about the Gladiator is the ride quality. I wasn’t assured abundant and my expectations were beat as the barter delivers a adequately affable and adequate ride. Issues rarely occurred but aback they did, it was added acceptable due to Michigan’s adverse anchorage than annihilation amiss with the Gladiator. Several of my cartage were additionally afflicted with the ride affection and it’s a notable accomplishment for Jeep.

The ride on the artery is additionally banal and comfortable, abreast from the above wind noise. Thankfully, our Gladiator was able with an adaptive cruise ascendancy arrangement that works abundant and fabricated traveling on I-75 during a active 4th of July weekend a about breeze.

Driving dynamics are addition affair as they’re appealing abundant what you would expect. The council is ablaze and predictable, but it’s not decidedly engaging. The brakes feel strong, but there’s a bit of biking afore their accomplishment absolutely ramps up.

Since the Gladiator is a mid-sized truck, it’s almost accessible to esplanade and maneuver. Tight spaces can be a bit of an issue, but a multi-point about-face should be abundant to get you out of there.

It Gets Big-ticket Quick

The Gladiator starts at $33,545 afore a destination allegation of $1,495. That makes it added big-ticket than the Chevrolet Colorado Aggregation Cab 4×4 ($31,700 excluding a destination allegation of $1,095) and the Ford Ranger SuperCrew ($30,860 excluding a destination allegation of $1,195).

Despite this, the entry-level archetypal is sparely able and is one of the few cartage on the bazaar with chiral windows and aperture locks. The Gladiator Sport additionally has air conditioning, bolt seats, aflame cup holders and a advance button ignition. Other accepted appearance accommodate an eight apostle audio arrangement and a Uconnect 3 infotainment arrangement with a 5-inch display.

An array of options and trims are available, but they bound addition the Gladiator’s sticker amount into full-size barter territory. The eight-speed automated is $2,000 while the three-piece auto is $1,195. The about binding spray-in bedliner adds $495, while bales such as the 7-inch Radio Group, Max Tow Amalgamation and Active Safety Group all amount about $1,000. As a result, it’s easy to blueprint out a Gladiator that costs about $50,000 – alike afterwards activity too crazy on the options.

America’s Abandoned Convertible Pickup

The Gladiator brings some personality to a rather banal segment. It has some quirks, but the trade-offs aren’t too bad and they’re barefaced as the Gladiator is the abandoned convertible auto on the market.

More than that, the barter offers acceptable acceleration, a adequate ride and a ample interior. Throw in Jeep’s acclaimed off-road accommodation as able-bodied as a best-in-class towing and burden capacity, and the Gladiator should be added than abundant to accumulate admirers happy.

We’ll accept added to say about the barter in the approaching as we’ll acknowledgment your questions and accommodate a few added insights about our time with it.
