As seen in last week’s leak, the Gladiator is a current-generation Wrangler from the nose to the C-pillar. But it features a five-foot bed behind the cabin, a revised tailgate, and a few more unique design cues here and there.

We already know that power will come from FCA's iconic 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, here rated at 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.

Both six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic gearboxes will be offered. A diesel mill, shared with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, will be introduced for the 2010 model year.

The new leak also confirms four trims: Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon.

The latter will feature aluminum-bodied shocks, full-length sidebars, 33-inch mud-terrain tires, and optional steel bumpers. The Gladiator will have a 7,650-pound towing capacity in its strongest setup and a 1,600-pound payload rating. Find out more about Jeep’s new truck on and make sure you stay tuned for the official unveiling.
