2019 Jeep Gladiator comes as the first Jeep’s model offered this year, and as a result of long planning how to make a rough truck on the Wrangler’s platform. Some buyers thought that those are just rumors, but this truck is true and we will be able to see it very soon.
It is for sure that 2019 Jeep Gladiator will be designed for off-road challenges, implying the higher position of the car and many additions in order to protect the car and allow better maneuver. The front end has a metallic bumper with two hooks below small body colored mesh grille and rounded front lights. The rear end has simple rear lights and many hands and hooks for cargo and heavy load. It is obvious that Gladiator will have a removable roof, but the manufacturer has not shared yet which type of it will be. The car is made of aluminum and possible elastic metallic sheet.
The cabin in 2019 Jeep Gladiator is highly functional and comfortable, with quality fabric on the seats and rich technology incorporated. The more interesting is how the manufacturer resolved the space for passengers. Even though the truck is planned to be a two-seat car, it has additional space on the cargo which could be used to add another row of the seats. However, it will be tight and small and can be used only in special circumstances. Besides that, the seats are simple and rough, but with enough space for driver and one passenger.
There are high chances that 2019 Jeep Gladiator gets 2.0-liter petrol engine as current Wrangler has since the truck is made of Wrangler’s platform. However, there could be found a slightly stronger 2.8-liter four-in-line petrol engine with 160 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This is maybe weak for the class of the trucks which includes much stronger vehicles made in Ford and Chevrolet, so it could be the reason for weaker sales. That is why we expect a 3.5-liter V6 model with 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, at least in higher trims. Whatever engine it is, it should get an eight-speed automatic transmission with optional manual one.
2019 Jeep Gladiator Release Date and Price
Even though buyers could presume Chevrolet, Ford or Toyota trucks as a possible competitor to 2019 Jeep Gladiator, it will be completely different. The rough shape and design allow driving on all types of roads, including rough ones, while the size of the truck provides large cargo space. However, the price of only $19,000 for base model promises better position on the selling lists.
