The Jeep Gladiator May Be the Name Of Your New Wrangler Pickup



It’s almost official. Most automotive insiders in the know now concur that Jeep’s new Wrangler-based pick-up truck will be called the Jeep Gladiator. For several months it was believed the Scrambler was the name Jeep would call the new pick-up. Recently, however, an automotive grapevine ‘long-time trusted source’ revealed a screenshot they saw of the company’s website had the new pick-up being called the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Apparently, Fiat-Chrysler’s media site had the name up long enough for the insider to view it on both their computer browser and their iPhone. The listing was reportedly taken down soon afterwards.

A Logical Choice

Jeep had used the Gladiator name on one of its vehicles during the 1960s. So, the revelation the company was calling the new Wrangler-based pick-up the ‘Gladiator’ was embraced as a great choice by long-time Jeep enthusiasts. They also point to the dramatic 2005 Wrangler concept pick-up that was called the Jeep Gladiator. Another reason many knowledgeable people believe Gladiator and not Scramble will be the name Jeep chooses for its new pick-up, is the Ducati brand, which is owned by Audi, has a sub-brand of off-road, retro-styled bikes that has been using the Scrambler name for years.

What To Expect

Insiders say the new Jeep Wrangler-based pick-up truck will be available in three trim level in the United States. They are the Sport, Overland and the Rubicon. Currently, the Overland trim isn’t offered on vehicles in the Wrangler range. Many expected it would be reserved for use on an off-road camping version. In terms of what features to expect on Jeep’s highly-anticipated and hotly debated new pick-up, insiders say an FCA dealer presentation teaser revealed a photograph of the pickup covered in camouflage said it has “next-generation advanced safety systems”, “15 class-exclusive innovations”, along with the latest infotainment systems featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
