Jeep Gladiator pickup becomes reality after years of teasing

Jeep презентовала пикап Gladiator

As was unofficially revealed, the new Gladiator brings the Wrangler's famous off-road prowess and open-topped body to the ute market; giving Jeep a unique selling point.

With the rapid growth in the midsize truck segment and new competitors are what seems like daily, if the Gladitor is a hit, FCA will be ready to meet production demand. This is a great feature that will helps buyers the hefty price tag attached to the Rubicon edition of the Gladiator (we expect it to hover around $65,000).

Revealed overnight at the LA Auto Show, the Gladiator is set for arrival in the second quarter of 2019 and will be available in Sport, Sport S, Overland and top-of-the-range Rubicon trim.

Jeep has also given the Gladiator a few necessary truck features, such as an optional spray-in bed liner and trail box storage units.

Indeed, at the front you'd be forgiven for mistaking the Gladiator for a Jeep Wrangler.

These celebrities posed as high school students who gossip about their stories related to Ariana Grande . In several photos , she's dressed as the leading ladies from all three of those movies.

The Gladiator has been created to marry the Wrangler's off-road ability with the practicality of a pick-up, with Jeep boss Tim Kuniskis saying that it combines "combined rugged utility, versatility and functionality", and was developed due to "tremendous demand" from customers. Jeep and truck fans, what do you think of this new Jeep Gladiator? But is there perhaps another reason Jeep is using a model name last affixed to a version of the Wagoneer?

From a design standpoint, the Wrangler-design inspiration is clear with the circular headlights, seven-slot grille and square taillights.

The Gladiator's bed will be available with a factory-applied bedliner, cargo partitions, a power outlet, and a tonneau cover-all for an extra cost, of course. As in the Wrangler, the Rubicon trim includes wider Dana 44 axles with electronic differential locks, 33-inch all-terrain tires wrapped around 17-inch alloy wheels, and sway bars that disconnect at the tap of a button for better axle articulation. The windscreen can be folded down by undoing four bolts, leaving a header bar between the A-pillars to ensure the rear-view mirror remains in place. Jeep hides the Gladiator's full-sized spare tire and mount under the bed. A lockable storage bin with removable dividers is available as an option. The doors are also removable, while the windshield can fold down as well. Lightweight aluminium doors feature the Torx bit size stamped directly onto the hinge (to eliminate guessing which size bit is needed to remove the doors, says Jeep). Cloth or leather-contoured seats feature accent stitching and adjustable bolster and lumbar support. Engine stop/start and push-button start are both standard.

It might look rugged on the outside, but on the inside, the Gladiator offers 7- or 8.4-inch tactile displays and a 7-inch LED driver information display. Its dashboard holds a standard 5.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment and 7.0- and 8.4-inch touchscreens with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are optional. The fourth-generation Uconnect system enhances the user interface and system performance with quicker startup times and improved screen resolution.
