There has been a lot surround the all-new 2020 Jeep® Gladiator Mojave – the first Jeep vehicle to carry the new “Desert Rated” badge. While the Jeep brand has told us the basics on the suspension, powertrain, and what it takes to make the new Mojave – “Desert Rated”, they have yet to talk about the availability and options of the new tough midsize pickup.
Our spy photographers have been hovering around the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan when they happened to spot a trio of new Gladiator Mojave pickups (red, white, and blue in fact – how patriotic is that?) with some interesting new features – mainly a new set of wheels that have yet to be seen.
Yes, a new set of five-spoke aluminum wheels that are painted black with machined facing on them are a welcome addition to the Mojave lineup. All of the models, that the Jeep brand has been showing thus far has featured the blacked-painted six-spoke wheels that were originally seen on the original prototypes running around Metro Detroit, this past summer.
We also see that the Mojave should mimic some of its Rubicon sibling’s options list, like the ability to equip the Mojave with standard black fenders or the ability to check the option box with body-colored fenders. With its standard hood scoop, the Mojave definitely stands out compared to other Gladiator pickups on the street and if you can’t see the big hood scoop, the orange-painted tow hooks front and back, as well as the orange-outlined badging will tell you, this isn’t a Rubicon model.
Gladiator Mojave models will arrive in Jeep showrooms in the second quarter of 2020.
