The best place to start, the engine. Of course the fact that we are dealing with a diesel is a great jumping off point. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator will be available in two different powertrains. An automatic 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with Engine Stop-Start (ESS) or an eight-speed automatic. This kick ass engine produces 285 horsepower, 260 lb-ft (353 N·m) of torque and features ESS as standard equipment. It is also engineered to provide a broad torque band with low-end torque. This is something that is definitely necessary if you want to travel the more beaten path. The lower gauge allows the 2020 Jeep Gladiator to really pull when you hook up the trailer or have a bit of cargo to transport.
In manual they offer a six-speed transmission; and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 with ESS. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on all Gladiator models equipped with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, and the eight-speed automatic transmission is optional. The six-speed transmission has been designed in a new way using optimized gear ratios for boosted crawl ratio performance and is also cable-operated, which takes care of that nasty shifter vibration sound. The shift pattern features a comfortable shifting position and bolsters shift accuracy. A 4.41 ratio spread offers improved fuel economy while letting you pick up speed, accelerate like lightening but without the rock and roll happening inside the vehicle.
In fact the types of options we have come to expect from Jeep, as they have been creating award-winning engines since 2010. In that time they have put out more than 8.6 million 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engines. They have really made a name for themselves when it comes to sophistication, strength, capability and flexibility. This particular anticipated 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine is now available and in the 2020 Gladiator models the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine is rated at 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft (599 N·m) of torque, with ESS standard. An eight-speed automatic transmission has no problem with the increased torque. In fact it engineers re-jiged to fulfil NAFTA region’s regulatory requirements.
The EcoDiesel V-6 engine was built for low-end and transient performance enabled buy its sophisticated turbocharger technology and low-friction bearing. The EcoDiesel V-6 engine also features a number of beneficial features.
Functions of an EcoDiesel V-6 Engine
- Low-friction pistons improving fuel economy
- Reduces greenhouse gas emissions
- Provides an enhanced combustion system
- Combustion system includes an injector nozzle, piston bowl and glow plug
- Integrated combustion pressure sensor to optimize combustion
- Low Pressure Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR)

For the Gladiator Rubicon in particular the eight-speed automatic transmission creates a 77.2:1 crawl ratio. The towing and 4x4 performance is also boosted from a 4.7:1 first gear ratio coupled with a 4.1:1 final drive delivers unbeatable competence. When it comes to the exterior the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is designed with a body-on-frame using new age material that is light yet rigid yet durable on a super strong steel frame. It also has a five-link suspension system.
When in comparison to Jeep Wrangler 4-door, Gladiator’s has literally been extended. The frame is 31 inches longer than the Jeep while the wheelbase is now 19.4 inches. This plus the bed’s positioning centre aft of the rear axle centre line makes for better weight distribution and smoother ride when hauling a trailer. It also been rated best-in-class towing and play lode capacity for a 4X4. The prop shaft, brake, fuel lines and exhaust system were likewise extended to make room for necessary changes to allow the body-on-frame design to work. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator also possesses great driving dynamics and passenger safely you can count on.
The light strong aluminium closures, doors, door hinges, hood, fender flares, windshield frame and tailgate eases things up to improve fuel economy. The hollow track and stabilizer bars, aluminium engine mounts and steering gear also don’t hurt. Neither do the tried and tested five-link coil suspension front suspension with lateral control arm and four longitudinal control arms. Full-width steel track bars control lateral movement of the axle with reduced angle change during suspension. However the 2020 Jeep Gladiator has something it can brag about as well, the back five-link coil suspension with two upper and two lower control arms and a track bar for lateral axle control. The control arms have been put located under the frame rails and the rear shocks are forward facing, which is to created damping for ride comfort and load management.
This ride will get you comfortably around town as well as through the woods with an approach angle of 43.6 degrees, breakover angle of 20.3 degrees, departure angle of 26 degrees and a ground clearance of 11.1 inches. While in the bush you will have no water worries, it can deal with up to 30 inches of fording, up to 1,600 pounds of payload and up to 7,650 pounds of towing capacity. The over eighty active and passive safety features on this bad boy are a big deal. They include the following.
