FCA/Stellantis Announces Their New Midsize Truck: 2020 Jeep Gladiator

FCA/Stellantis has developed an addition to the Jeep family that will be available in 2019, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. This vehicle uses Jeep’s traditional body on frame design, with many other Jeep trademarks added into the overall look of the vehicle. Though the Gladiator may sport many of Jeep’s famous features, it brings some new materials and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for collision repair technicians to be aware of.

To help with weight reduction, the Gladiator uses an aluminum hood, doors, tailgate door hinges, fender flares, and windshield frame. There are two different trim packages available, the Overland and the Rubicon. The Gladiator Rubicon has a forward-facing off-road camera that has the ability to spot obstructions in the path. The front camera is located in the middle slot of the traditional Jeep grille. Other ADAS features include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, back up camera, and adaptive cruise control.
