Truck Tuesday: Jeep® Gladiator made for winter weather

Cold, snow and inclement weather are just some of the challenges drivers face in the winter, and all are less daunting with the Jeep® Gladiator.

The 2020 North American Truck of the Year offers a combination of rugged utility, available features and clever design elements to help the Gladiator conquer whatever Mother Nature may throw in its way.

The ‘most capable midsize truck ever’ includes standard four-wheel drive on all models powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, which delivers 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque standard, to better navigate snow-covered roads with power and confidence.

If those roadways are covered with increasing amounts of snow, the Gladiator has a maximum ground clearance of 11.1 inches to allow it to be driven confidently over whatever accumulates.

As the drivetrain does its work to get the Gladiator through the white and drifted snow, passengers inside the truck are protected from the elements while staying comfortable with available features like heated front seats and steering wheel.

While the Gladiator offers many features to conquer winter driving, age-old driving tips, such as having extra patience, increasing stopping distance between vehicles and avoiding sudden acceleration and deceleration, will help make the trip safer.

Hello from the Motor City! I’m Edward Cardenas and I’m multimedia editor for FCA US. As a lifelong Detroiter, I have been surrounded by the automotive industry. I’ve had members of my immediate and extended family work in the industry. I’ve covered it as a journalist and advocated for it as a communications professional. I have also experienced the thrills of the industry while riding in a race car at nearly 200 miles per hour. Having this breadth of experience, I look forward to drawing upon my experiences to bring a wide range of stories, photos and videos about Chrysler, FIAT and Alfa Romeo to FCA Digital Media. When I’m not covering my brands, I’m spending time with my wife and two boys.
