Gobi Finish Is The Perfect Paint For The Gladiator And Wrangler
Gobi - named after the desert in Asia - joined Gladiator’s exterior color palette for the first time in 2020, and it has now returned for the 2022 model year. Also, the same finish is being offered for the 2022 Wrangler for the first time.
Priced at $495, the new Gobi finish joins other exclusive colors like Tuscadero, Gecko, or Nacho.
Stock Jeep Trackhawk Takes On The Venom 775 F-150 By Hennessey Performance
Hennessey Performance was out at the Pennzoil proving grounds in Sealy, Texas once again, with their Venom 775 taking on an equally aggressive Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Let’s look at the numbers on these two machines to see how they stack up against each other, shall we?
Stellantis And Mopar Had Some Pretty Darn Sweet Concepts At The 2021 SEMA Show
The SEMA Show plays host to hundreds of vehicles from automakers and aftermarket companies from all across the globe. One of the most consistent groups to take part at the show is Stellantis with Mopar. Most of its brands – especially Jeep – always turn heads with some fantastic concepts. This year was no exception as the auto group brought seven different concepts from Jeep, Ram, and Dodge to the recently concluded event at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
This Jeep Gladiator 6x6 Looks Armageddon-Ready
There are a lot of 6x6 trucks in the market today. You’ve got iterations of the F-150 Raptor, and Ram 1500 TRX that have been given an extra axle and a pair of wheels. However, Jeep Gladiator seems to be a popular option amongst aftermarket companies for this mod. We’ve seen builds from Apocalypse Manufacturing,So-Flo, and even the Rezvani Hercules, and now we have another entry to this Gladiator-based 6x6 truck by Next Level Offroad.
The California-based company has come up with a build of its own. It doesn’t look as monstrous as the others and is actually one of the cleanest builds we’ve seen.
This ’Possessed’ Jeep Gladiator Has An 850-Horsepower Dodge Demon V-8 Under The Hood!
Jeep Gladiator needs no introduction. It was one of the most anticipated products and it didn’t let anyone down. What makes it even more special is that being an FCA product, or should I say Stellantis product, there is no dearth of customization options. But, here’s one example that probably sets the benchmark for Gladiators.
Presenting to you, courtesy of AutotopiaLA, the Jeep ‘Possessed’ Gladiator. It is big, brawny, and comes with mods that can make purists go weak in the knees
2021 Jeep Gladiator Diesel - Driven
The Jeep Gladiator was one of the most anticipated vehicles for a very long time. Jeep had revealed the Gladiator concept back in 2005 but took almost 14 years to roll out the production model. But, we finally had a Jeep-branded truck after three long decades. The truck was launched with much pomp and show and it caught a lot of attention. The truck comes in a wide number of trims with uncountable packages and accessories to complement it. The automaker keeps the Gladiator fresh by launching special editions, too.
However, Jeep hasn’t been able to sell the Gladiator in big numbers. One reason could be the high pricing, and the other was offering it with just a single engine option – the old but reliable V-6 Pentastar. Jeep probably figured this out soon and launched an EcoDiesel engine as an option. A Gladiator dressed in the Overland trim with the new diesel mill under the hood arrived at TopSpeed, and here are our impressions of it.
2021 Apocalypse Hellfire 6x6
There’s no way 6x6 trucks can sneak away without catching any attention. There are quite a few aftermarket 6x6 creations like the VelociRaptor and the Mammoth by Hennessey, Gladiator by So-Flo, and some 6x6s that are built from the scratch, like the Rezvani Hercules. While Rezvani may have taken a different approach, a company called Apocalypse Manufacturing has developed a 6x6 based on the Jeep Gladiator called the Hellfire. Apart from the six-wheel-drive layout, it comes with massive tires, an active suspension system, and a cabin filled with modern tech features. The asking price for this beast runs into six digits.
2020 Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept by Mopar
The SEMA Show is turning out to be quite exciting. Jeep is taking part, obviously, and has come with a concept targeted at hard-core mountain bike enthusiasts. The automaker, along with Mopar, has transformed the 2020 Gladiator pickup truck into a fun concept vehicle for serious mountain bikers. But, what’s catchier about this concept is the number of storage spaces in the customized truck bed. Oh, and also, there’s a built-in hot dog machine. How about that!
2021 Jeep Gladiator Willys
While special editions are a nice thing to have, an overdose of them isn’t taken too well. Not long ago, Jeep introduced anniversary editions on many of its vehicles, and now, it has come up with another one for the Gladiator. This one is called the Gladiator Willys. Willys models in Jeeps have a different fan-base altogether, so we’ll let Jeep off the hook for this one. The pickup truck comes with a lot of off-road equipment in this edition, and it will be an exciting one for the folks who found the standard Gladiator a little too plain-Jane as per Jeep’s standards. Will this qualify to become a standard trim in the future?
2021 Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Edition
Jeep has introduced 80th Anniversary Edition on a few of its vehicles, with the Gladiator being one of them. This special edition brings about new additions on the outside and inside the cabin, but things are the same under the hood. The Gladiator hasn’t been a runaway success for Jeep, despite the hype it garnered before its launch. Will this edition shake-up the Gladiator and bring in sales for the automaker?
Watch the Old Land Rover Defender Keep Up with the New Defender and Jeep Gladiator
Land Rover brought back the 2020 Defender after a four-year hiatus and it is quite impressive. But, the new body and feel gave it more of an urban vibe than the classic off-roader pizzazz that the Defender is generally known for. So, to see how it weighs in the present scenario, the folks at TFL decided to take it off-roading along with the old Defender and the rugged Jeep Gladiator. Can it match its rivals as an off-roader, or has the new Defender become an urban commuter with a just little off-roading DNA left in it?
2020 Jeep Gladiator 6x6 by So Flo Jeeps
We’ve seen plenty of Jeep Gladiator aftermarket builds, but this is one of a kind. South Florida Jeeps, aka So Flo Jeeps, has created a monster out of this simple-looking truck from Jeep. Called the SF 6x6G, the company has transformed every single nook and corner of this Gladiator. It rides much higher than the stock model, sits on bigger tires, comes equipped with a lot of additional accessories, has an extra axle, and the best part – packs a Corvette engine under the hood. Can a build get any better?
2020 Jeep Gladiator - Driven
The Gladiator was the most anticipated launch of 2020, right alongside the Chevrolet C8. Jeep had revealed the pickup truck concept back in 2005, but it took the company 15 years to bring out the production version. This was going to be Jeep’s first pickup truck in 30 years, so it was natural for enthusiasts to be hyped up for it. Jeep even introduced five different Gladiator concepts at the 2019 Eastern Jeep Safari and gave the Wranglers a miss; which is some sort of a record in Jeep’s history.
The company launched the Gladiator with four trims plus a limited Launch Edition trim, but it expanded the lineup with three more trims within a year. The Gladiator was a true-blue Jeep, but it isn’t bringing in volumes for the automaker, perhaps because of its slightly-higher pricing. But, a year post its launch with new trims in line and price discounts to lure the customers, can the Gladiator rake in sales numbers for Jeep?
Here’s How the $225,000 Hennessey Jeep Gladiator Maximus 1000 Makes the Desert Its Bitch
The Maximus 1000 might arguably be the most popular product from Hennessey today. The truck is a beast in Jeep Gladiator’s clothes. It is plonked with the Hellcat 6.2-liter, supercharged V-8 engine under the hood and given the Hennessey treatment. On paper, the Maximus 1000 checked all the boxes that you’d expect from a truck of this demeanor. But, we have yet to see it prove its mettle in tough terrains or tracks or anywhere in the real world for that matter. However, Hennessey decided to show the world the Maximus’ might and took it to the desert to play with it. Is it still impressive? Hell yeah!
The Best Pickup Trucks for 2020
There’s no denying that pickup trucks are America’s favorite vehicles. Ford F-Series has consistently topped the sales charts for 42 consecutive years now.

There is a different variant or a different model altogether in every $1,000 bracket. To help you with this dilemma, we’ve compiled a list of 10 best pickup trucks, ranging from midsize trucks, to full-size, and to heavy-duty ones.
