First 2020 Jeep Gladiator Videos Are Out, Reviews And Prices Due Tomorrow

The long wait for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is almost over, as customers will be able to place the first orders from the first half of April, which is basically just around the corner.

On Saturday, March 30, Jeep will officially release pricing and fuel economy numbers for the JT truck and will also lift the media embargo for driving impressions of their pickup truck that is scheduled to hit U.S. dealerships in June.

What that means is that tomorrow we shall publish the first 2020 Jeep Gladiator reviews. However, if you really can’t wait one more day, the folks from The Fast Lane Truck have released two videos shot at the media launch event last month that show a number of things about the midsize truck — save, of course, for driving impressions, fuel economy figures, and pricing.

While they can’t talk about how the Gladiator drives, they can show footage of the truck as it drives and that’s more than enough — especially when it comes to off-road performance. The fact that all Gladiators feature solid axles allows for maximum articulation, which is a key ingredient when it comes to off-roading capabilities.

Recently, the Gladiator Rubicon (which has a disconnecting sway bar) was awarded a class-leading 623 RTI (Ramp Travel Index) score, blowing away the competition. Second place went to the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro with an RTI rating of 492, with the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 scoring 489 in third place.

Okay, now we know you are really anxious to see the first proper reviews because we can’t wait for them either.

    Is it still as horrible in a crash and prone to sudden suspension and steering failure as the regular one?

    • Lol, so true.

      You mean death wobble? Yep most certainly.

    • SgtBeavis

      Death wobble is an issue can happen on any Jeep. It’s something inherent to solid front axle steering. The JL has had a slight wobble on some models, but it isn’t close to Death Wobble. There is a new TSB that appears to resolve this with a new track bar that has beefier bushing at the ends. They’ve also changed the alignment settings.

      There was also an issue with some early JLs having bad steering stabilizers. Some had the wrong calibration settings too.

    Go look at Motor Trend on Apple News+ They have an article saying the base price of the Gladiator Rubicon is $44K and the price as tested was $56K

    • Alduin

      Thats ridiculous for a Jeep. You have to be an absolute moron to buy a jeep for $56,000. FCA’s reliability is crap.
