The Return of the Jeep Pickup Truck in Waynesboro
There once was a time when the Jeep® pickup truck was just a thing of the past, now a revitalized model is gracing showrooms across the country, Buchannan Auto Park of Waynesboro, PA included. Known as the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, we’re excited to show you just how this new Jeep truck is shaking up the Jeep family.
For about a decade, the Jeep family lineup was exclusively made of SUVs, and great ones at that. The Jeep SUV is iconic, and yet, many drivers longed for the days when a Jeep pickup graced the lineup. Well, the Jeep truck has returned and it’s making waves in the auto industry. At first glance, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is a near-identical clone of the flagship Jeep Wrangler, but with a five-foot truck bed slapped to the back. As a result, the Jeep Gladiator is one of the most rugged, utility ready, pickups on the road today.
Visit our Jeep dealership and you’ll find three different trims to choose from the Sport, Overland, and Rubicon. Each model utilizes a 285-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 engine to propel this rugged pickup forward. With the choice of either an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission, you can expect some pretty consistent handling on either pavement or dirt. Speaking of dirt, the Jeep Gladiator comes tooled with Jeep’s famous part-time four-wheel-drive system, giving it a level of versatility that other pickup models struggle to compete against. Partner this four-wheel-drive system with the Jeep Gladiator’s ability to tow 7,650 pounds and the upcoming 3.0-liter turbo diesel V-6 and you get the full package when it comes to utility, power, and practicality.
While we’ll have to wait a little while for the turbo diesel version, you can test-drive the new 2020 Jeep Gladiator today at Buchannan Auto Park. Our auto dealers can show you how the latest Jeep pickup truck squashes the competition whether hauling cargo or venturing across rugged off-road terrain.
