Jeep is planning to introduce a back-to-basics Gladiator pickup with a canvas roof that
rolls partway back or can be removed entirely.
There will be two doors on the passenger
side and a cargo hatch for easy access on the driver’s side. Gladiator’s cargo bed measures
5.5 feet in length. If you stow the rear seat, the rear bulkhead moves forward into the
two-row cab, stretching the bed to an even 8 feet.
Power comes from a 2.8-liter,
four-cylinder turbodiesel-rated 163 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque mated to a manual
transmission with four-wheel drive.
