The Jeep Gladiator Experience

Published on Jul 14, 2022 by Talia Mushinsky

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.  The Jeep Gladiator is a midsize pickup truck that can satisfy the needs of a traditional truck owner while maintaining Jeep's legendary off-road prowess. Now, almost four years later, Gladiators are a common sight on your local roadways and are favored by 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. As with a traditional Jeep Wrangler, the Gladiator has a huge potential for upgrades and customization. The one we test drove included features like tube steps, upgraded tires, winch, remote start, and an upgraded interior. As mentioned above, the Gladiator has the feel of a classic Jeep Wrangler with the utility of a pickup truck.


This ride embodies a free spirited person who is ready for adventure and wants a truck that is ready to handle whatever is thrown its way. The Gladiator is a great combination of functionality and style, while staying true to the Jeep tradition of rugged simplicity. 


It is easy to see why many people love what Jeep has done with the Gladiator. Owners have a perfect platform for customizing and enhancing off-road features. The Black Widow upfitted Gladiator we test drove has proven that the possibilities are endless. Whether it's commuting in the city or off-roading, the Gladiator is ready for battle.
