According to the latest reports, new pickup truck from Jeep will come late next year, probably as 2018 Jeep Gladiator Pickup. Although many expected to see new model a little bit earlier, that won’t happen. Company prepares this new model with great attention, and works on it with no rush. When it is about base details of new vehicles, it is worth to mention that this will be a first pickup truck from Jeep for so many years. It will come based on legendary Wrangler SUV, sharing most of the parts. Also, we will see some new design solutions from Jeep, new engines and many other novelties. We expect its arrival in about a year.
2018 Jeep Gladiator Pickup design and features
The 2018 Jeep Gladiator Pickup will be a completely new model from this Chrysler’s brand. We will see a pickup truck that will ride on the same platform as new Wrangler, which is coming soon. When it is about base characteristics, new truck will features a classic body on frame platform, with big use of advanced technologies. Most of the parts will be shared between this truck and Wrangler. New SUV will come redesigned soon and it will feature new styling, which will include some new solutions, but still follow Wrangler’s classic manner. The 2018 Gladiator Pickup will follow this manner and it will come with the pretty much same front end as popular SUV. When it is about body style, we expect to see new truck in some kind of double cab configuration, but some bigger variant is possible too. Regular cab doesn’t sound so likely.
2018 Jeep Gladiator Pickup engines
The 2018 Jeep Gladiator Pickup will rely on Chrysler’s proven variants when it comes to powertrain. We will see familiar and proven units in offer. Expect two petrol units in offer. First one should be a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder unit, while optional V6 Pentastar should come as optional. There are also reports about diesel engine, but we don’t have more precise information at this moment. Company’s new automatic transmission should come as standard, while manual transmission could be an option.
2018 Jeep Gladiator Pickup release date and price
Latest reports suggest that 2018 Jeep Gladiator Pickup should come somewhere in the second half of next year. Exact price is still hard to predict, but we are pretty sure that base models won’t go over 30.000 dollars.
