Only a Jeep pickup could deliver an interior so unique like the one found on the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator. There are exclusive rear seats complete with a secure storage design, a center stack that screams heritage-inspired nostalgia, and even the ability to enjoy open-air freedom the way only a Jeep vehicle can. The Gladiator is innovative, functional and intuitive – and it’s ready to hit the road!
In fact, the Gladiator is such a unique midsize truck that it was recently named one of Wards 10 Best Interiors for 2019. Its mix of high-quality materials and precise craftsmanship are to be revered. Ralph Gilles, Head of Design at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), said “The Gladiator’s rugged interior styling is a subtle balance of premium materials, must-have features and technology that turns the basic daily drive into an adventure. The truck encompasses the spirit of the Jeep brand while checking all the boxes our customers desire.”
And talk about Jeep spirit – the Gladiator offers owners the ability to remove both the doors and the top – an unprecedented feature in a midsize pickup and absolutely unique to the Gladiator. There’s also a push-to-start button, a weatherproof interior, a drain plug and a 7- or an available 8.4-inch touchscreen display equipped with the fourth-generation Uconnect infotainment system.
Chris Benjamin, head of Jeep engineering design, recently stated “We think that all of the thoughtfulness that we put into the interior offers the customers something they’ve always wanted in a pickup truck, but was never available to them. The Gladiator is about functionality. It is about how you use it. It is about your lifestyle. One of the most versatile features of Gladiator is the rear seat, which offers a number of different storage solutions. The rear seat is divided into a 60-40 configuration and can be folded up into “stadium” position to reveal a standard open storage bin. There’s also an optional lockable bin to provide secure storage space when the top or doors are removed. The available lockable storage bin features two different sized doors that correspond to the 60/40 split rear cushion, and use the same lock as the glove box and center console. Removable dividers can provide up to five separate compartments to allow for storage of items ranging from fishing rods to backpacks, yoga mats, food and other dear in the storage bin. The great thing about it is that the seat is lockable. When you are out exploring and you’ve the doors off and you’ve got the roof off, you can still have your items in there and they are secured and you don’t have to worry.”
Jeep has clearly put a lot of thought into the Gladiator as the brand offers features that current midsize truck owners probably didn’t even realize they needed. We are sure to hear much more about the Gladiator’s prowess and comforts as it makes its way from dealer lots to customers’ driveways. Benjamin is convinced that the Jeep Gladiator is the latest vehicle in the Jeep lineup that’s slated to become as iconic as the Wrangler and be part of the Jeep vehicles “that inspire people to take adventures and try new things.” We’re sure that Jeepers will soon come to know the Gladiator as a functional and individualistic midsize pickup that meshes with their lifestyles just fine.
