As if it were planned, weeks before the unveil of the much anticipated Jeep Pickup, the FCA Media site has accidentelly leaked images and specs for the upcoming model!  And even though we ewre all expecting the Scrambler name, it looks like it’s going to be called Gladiator!

Check out this video to get my take on the specs that were leaked.

Here are the specs as I’ve been able to find them.  Obviously, this isn’t a full spec sheet, but it’s what was leaked.

 

All-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator: The Most Capable Midsize Truck Ever

Legendary 4×4 Capability, Authentic Design Builds on Rich Jeep Truck Heritage, Best-in-class Towing and 4×4 Payload, Clever Functionality and Versatility, Advanced Fuel-efficient Powertrains, Open-air Freedom and Loaded with Safety Features and Intuitive Technology

Unmatched capability with Command-Trac and Rock-Trac 4×4 systems, third-generation Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited-slip differential, segment-exclusive electronic sway-bar disconnect and 33-inch off-road tires

Unmatched crawl ratios
Up to 30 inches of water fording
Best-in-class towing and 4×4 payload:
Up to 7,650 pounds of towing capacity
Up to 1,600 pounds of payload capacity
Crew cab configuration features a durable five-foot steel bed with covered external power source and strong integrated tie-downs, providing versatility for flexible cargo options
Modern, authentic design instantly recognizable as a Jeep:
Iconic keystone-shaped grille, round headlamps and square tail lamps
Rugged-yet distinguished design bolsters aerodynamics
Convenient fold-down windshield for off-road purists
The only true open-air 4×4 pickup truck with easy-to-use premium soft top and two hardtops
Dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations
Lightweight, high-strength aluminum doors, hinges, hood, fenders, windshield frame and tailgate help curtail weight and boost fuel economy
Suspension tuned to optimize on-road handling and ride comfort without sacrificing off-road capability, payload or towing capability
Advanced fuel-efficient powertrains:
3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with Engine Stop-Start (ESS)
Eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission
3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 with ESS and an eight-speed automatic transmission available in 2020
Fourth-generation Uconnect system includes Apple Carplay, Android Auto and the choice of 7.0- or 8.4-inch touchscreens with pinch-and-zoom capability
Forward-facing off-road camera available on Rubicon allows obstructions on the trail to be easily seen
Packed with more than 80 available advanced safety and security features

Most notable to me.

  • No 4-cyl engine is listed, the Diesel of course is
  • I’m surprised by the mention of ESS on the diesel engine.
  •  8-speed automatic transmission, but no mention of a manual?
