Experience the Jeep Gladiator

Published on Jun 14, 2023 by Dylan Weiher

Is it a truck or a Jeep?… The answer is yes! Jeep Gladiator is an exciting midsize truck that can satisfy the needs of the traditional truck owner, while maintaining the legendary off-road capability that Jeep has built its reputation on for so many years. When Jeep announced the return of the Gladiator namesake in 2018, many were excited to see a truck that once again donned the Jeep badge. Almost four years later, Gladiators are a common sight on local roadways and are popular with off-road enthusiasts. 


We decided to jump in a new Jeep Gladiator SCA Performance with a Black Widow upfit and see what is truly possible with the Gladiator model. Similar to a Jeep Wrangler, the Gladiator has a lot of potential for upgrades and customization. The one we test drove included features like tube steps, upgraded tires, winch, remote start, and an upgraded interior. The Gladiator really combines the classic Jeep Wrangler feel with the utility of a pickup truck.


It is the perfect ride for someone who is ready for adventure and wants a truck that can handle whatever is thrown at it. The Gladiator shines in functionality and style, while sticking to the classic Jeep mold of rugged simplicity. 


Many people love what Jeep has done with the Gladiator, and it is easy to see why. Owners have a perfect platform for customization and off-road enhancements. We tested a Black Widow Gladiator and it proved that the possibilities are endless. The Gladiator is ready for battle, whether it’s on your city commute or in the off-road arena.
