    The Jeep Gladiator is a pickup truck that was originally introduced in 1962 for that model year. Although it would be rebranded as the Jeep J10/J20 in 1971, the pickup remained in production until 1988. After teasing a series of concepts throughout the 2000s, the Gladiator made its return in April of 2019 for the 2020 model year. The new Gladiator is essentially a JL-generation Wrangler that has been turned into a pickup truck. As such, the only real technical differences between the Wrangler and the Gladiator are its longer wheelbase and pickup bed. Currently, the sole engine offered is the naturally-aspirated DOHC 3.6L Pentastar V6; with the turbodiesel DOHC 3.0L VM Motori A630 EcoDiesel V6 rumored to be coming sometime next year. Transmission choices are the 6-speed Aisin AL6 manual and the 8-speed Torqueflite 850RE automatic. All models use exclusively 4 wheel drive. The Gladiator is offered in Sport, Sport S, Rubicon, Overland, and limited Launch Edition (2020 model year only) trim levels. Seen on the lot of a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram dealership in Prescott, AZ.

Looks pretty cool. I'm thinking about using this truck in a crossover story using some of my OCs.


If they existed IRL, they'd say,


Kaoru Ibaraki

"This looks impressive. It's about as sleek and sexy as my long and shiny boots." - Kaoru Ibaraki


Operation K.A.O.R.I. - Kasumi

"I'm not much for big cars, but it looks like something I could use in a tough spot." - Kasumi Fujiwara


Operation K.A.O.R.I. - Erica

"Excellent. Perhaps I can use this whenever I travel cross country." - Erica Matthews



Operation K.A.O.R.I - Mikaela

"Sweet ride. Maybe I can use it to carry my rifles." - Mikaela Crawford


Operation K.A.O.R.I. - Yukari

"This looks wonderful. It's big and tough, so it'll protect me." - Yukari Futaragi



Also, these quotes show a fair bit of what their individual personalities are like.

The Gladiator is a damn solid truck for sure.

I honestly really like how this truck looks, especially the Rubicon trim. I don't understand all of the hate it gets.

What? People actually hate this?

Come the fuck on, it's looking like one of 2020's best releases by far. In a world dominated by fake SUVs and pseudo-fastbacks, it's nice to see such a breath of fresh air.

YES. I know plenty of people who are like "Ugh, the Gladiator is just a Wrangler with a bed" when it's so much more than that.

Definitely one of the better releases. Especially considering the crap we got from Ford.

Those people are just ignorant millenials that don't know what the Jeep Scrambler or Honcho is.
BRO1717's avatar

Lol. I'm happy that even though I'm a millennial I know what both of those are.

GermanIdolGod's avatar
Yeah. It might share a lot with the Wrangler, but it is still a damn good truck for what you get.

Oh god don't even fuckin remind me of.....the fake SUV that shall not be named....
BRO1717's avatar
