As a Jeep® dealership in the Portage-Vicksburg area, we like to keep our customers updated with all of the new car news about our brand. We were very excited when we learned about an upcoming Jeep truck model. Now that we have some details, we want to tell you about the 2020 Jeep Gladiator.

Just debuted at the LA Auto Show earlier this month, the Jeep Gladiator is the best of both worlds – the power and appeal of a truck combined with the iconic style and off-road reliability of a Jeep SUV. Legendary 4×4 meets best-in-class towing – up to 7,650 pounds. The two engine options are a 3.6-liter V6 with an eight speed automatic or six speed manual transmission OR the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel® V6 paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission.

This model has unmatched crawl ratios and up to 30 inches of water fording, plus a special suspension system made for off-road fun. The crew cab configuration helps with this by including a covered external power source and strong integrated tie-downs.

When it comes to looks, picture those signature round headlamps, keystone-shaped grille, and square tail lamps. The Jeep Gladiator is the only true open air 4×4 thanks to a convenient fold-down windshield, plus your choice of hard or soft top. There are dozens of different door, top, and windshield combinations.

We can’t wait to see this model, and its more than 80 available advanced safety and security features, in person after the new year. We also have plenty of 2019 Jeep models if you’re ready to begin shopping now. Come see our wide new and pre-owned selection, and we know you’ll go home happy. Visit our dealership in Vicksburg today!
