2020 Gladiator Military Edition | Is it for sale in Toronto?
Marching to a Historic Beat
Left, right, left, right left. The Jeep Gladiator Extreme Military Grade Truck has marched onto the scene, armed and ready to serve with its bevy of tactical technology. First seen in the Annual Meeting and Exposition of the Association of the U.S. Army in Washington, DC it has left the military market to the north on tender hooks. Originally designed for use in World War II this ancestor of the 2020 Jeep has been tinkered with by FCA and AM General, who created the military HUMVEE for the military. In its original incarnation in 1944 this vehicle was intended as a reconnaissance and command car. Now it is sporting new design, up to date specs and a new attitude!
For the men and woman who serve their country the 2020 Gladiator Military Edition as a Jeep Wrangler descendant has been outfitted with improved off-road capabilities, and military grade parts i.e. skid plates, hooks to tow and 4X4 systems as well as equipment for tactical and communication, should the soldiers need to contact home base. This heavy hitter boasts the ability to haul up to 7,650lbs of equipment equipment In terms of the payload capacity it can carry 1,600 pounds of whatever you want, be it a platoon of soldiers bound for the mess hall or a rowdy cadets singing a constant chorus of the “are we there yet” symphony. However if that is just too much for one commander to take consider the question, will the Jeep Gladiator release a two door version? The short answer is yes, they will! In fact it will be offered in the same trim levels Sport, Overland and Rubicon.
What are the design specs for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator? This military vehicle has both custom built and commercially available military standard parts so they can truck down the highway or take the mission off road. It has been given It has 4 doors, capacity for 5 passengers, four-wheel drive, 16/23mpg city/highway (est), V-6 engine, 285hp, 260lb-ft and a 6-speed manual transmission. It also is available in both gasoline or diesel powered versions. In addition to that AM General also plans to further modify the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Military Edition so it is even more suited as a personnel carrier as well as a command truck. Heck, I wouldn’t say no to a tour of the base on that! It is easy to see why this vehicle has created so much excitement and it is my hope that our own armed forces will get their chance to get their hands on some of these military beauties.
This historically high performance will be a incredibly functional and versatile Jeep that can definitely get the platoon where they want to go, safely, with style, precise breakover and departure angles and military precision. So to all the brave men and women who have ridden this vehicle to honour and glory we thank you and we carry you with us in this historical nod to the Jeep that started it all.
