The Capability of a Truck

Minnesota is truck country; that’s no secret. Even though the Gladiator is new to town, it’s keeping up with the more established truck brands on the market.

Housed within the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is the powerful 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with capabilities that include:

  • 285 horsepower
  • 260 lb-ft. max torque
  • 7,650 lbs towing capacity
  • 16/23 mpg city/hwy

Pretty powerful, right?!

Additional handling technology includes heavy-duty Dana® 44 front and rear solid axles with extra-thick tubes and forgings for exceptional strength, rigidity, and durability. 

Want to take the Gladiator off road? It’s high-strength steel skid plates help protect key components like the fuel tank and transfer case from damage that can be caused by challenging trails. 

Speaking of trails …

The Only Trail Rated® Pickup Truck Ever!

One of the biggest reasons drivers choose a Jeep in the first place is because of its outstanding off-road capability, proudly denoted by the Trail Rated® badge. In order to earn this badge, a vehicle is put through a series of grueling tests over rough terrain and harsh conditions. 

This is where the Jeep Gladiator stands out among other trucks for sale in St. Cloud. The Gladiator is the only existing pickup truck that has earned the prestigious Trail Rated® badge

When you take this one-of-a-kind truck off-roading, you can feel confident taking on nearly any road condition thanks to the following capabilities:

  • Traction: Jeep Brand 4x4 systems help to ensure the right tire has traction when it’s needed.
  • Water Fording: High air intake and special water sealing to help get you through creaks and streams of up to 30 inches. 
  • Maneuverability: The Gladiator isn’t as bulky and box-y as other trucks. It can maneuver its way around narrow gaps and tight spots. 
  • Articulation: Higher levels of articulation will keep all four tires on the ground to keep your driving safe. 
  • Ground Clearance: Driving over rocks or logs? Do it without worrying about damage to the underside of your vehicle with the Gladiator’s 11.1 inches of ground clearance.
