A limited-run version of the Jeep brand’s return to the pickup truck market-the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition-has sold out. The unique Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition was offered for pre-order to the general public on Jeep 4×4 Day, April 4. The pre-order process, including selecting a Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition and connecting with a dealer, allowed buyers to start the ordering process online through a dedicated Jeep Gladiator Concierge.
“There has been significant interest in the all-new Jeep Gladiator since it was first revealed late last year,” said Tim Kuniskis, head of Jeep Brand North America. “This was made further evident by the incredible response of the 4,190 soon-to-be Gladiator Launch Edition owners, who pre-ordered their vehicles yesterday. The response has inspired both us at the Jeep brand and U.S. Army veteran Noah Galloway. So, while the details are still to come, we plan to ‘pay it forward’ together in a special way with Noah in May during Military Appreciation Month.”
The Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition will feature unique wheels and interior accents, as well as a One of 4,190 forged aluminum tailgate badge. The number is a tribute to Toledo, Ohio, and its 419 area code where both Gladiator and the Jeep Wrangler are assembled.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator arrives in Jeep showrooms this spring.
The Gladiator Launch Edition features a forged aluminum tailgate badge, 17-inch mid-gloss black aluminum wheels, 33-inch Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires, a wrapped instrument panel mid-bolster painted in Monaco silver and black leather seats with red accent stitching. Available in black, bright white, Billet Silver Metallic, Firecracker Red and Granite Crystal Metallic, the Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition features a body-color hardtop and fender flares.
The Launch Edition features a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, rated at 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. of torque, and a six-speed manual transmission or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission.
