2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup to be known as Gladiator

A leak from the company’s press site has revealed the 2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup will be known as the Jeep Gladiator, not the Scrambler as initially thought.

The slip up was revealed by Jeep Scrambler Forum, which quickly renamed itself as the Jeep Gladiator Forum.

The new Gladiator will debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show on November 26. It will then go on sale in the middle of 2019.

It will be available initially with 3.6L Pentastar V6, a crew cab body, and the choice of soft or hard tops. A 3L turbo diesel will become available in 2020.
