The MoparInsiders team is currently in Toronto, Ontario at the 2020 Canadian International Auto Show, where Mopar just rolled out another Mopar-Modified 2020 Jeep® Gladiator. The Jeep brand’s new midsize pickup has been racking up the awards as of late, but can’t seem to gain traction in sales against Chevrolet’s Colorado or Ford’s new Ranger.
Could it be the fact that the Gladiator is more expensive, but features more standard equipment like four-wheel-drive? More than likely. However, it isn’t stopping Jeep diehards from buying the new Gladiator and looking to the aftermarket to modify their pickups. That isn’t stopping Mopar from showcasing more than 200 custom parts for the new Gladiator and its customer base, as the Gladiator is quickly becoming one of the most modified Jeep nameplates.
Mopar’s choice to demonstrate its available portfolio at the 2020 Canadian International AutoShow is the Trail-Rated 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. The vehicle features a wide array of Mopar modifications that include a Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) 2-inch lift kit, JPP tube doors, JPP heavy-duty rock rails, a combination of JPP 5-inch and 7-inch off-road LED lights, while unique JPP badges have been added to both sides of the vehicle. The exterior also features a blacked-out grille and winch guard hoop, windshield tie-down straps, a Warn winch, as well as 35-inch tires mounted to Mopar 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels.
In the rear of the Mopar-Modified Gladiator, the custom pickup features the new Mopar truck bed storage system. This system enhances the utility of the truck’s box with lockable and dual sliding drawers. Two Jeep-branded bicycles are features upright on the Mopar utility rails, while a new Mopar ramp system makes it easier than ever to load up and is a carryover from Mopar’s Ram 1500 portfolio.
Under the hood, the Mopar-Modified Gladiator features a Mopar cold-air intake that features the Jeep brand logo and draws in fresh air from the hood cut-out to increase engine performance.
Inside, the truck features a special set of Katzkin leather seats that are embroidered with a distinctive Jeep grille logo in Tungsten stitching. Giving the interior a much more upscale look, than the standard Rubicon seat covers. Mopar grab handles feature Jeep grille logo and is hard-secured, offering increased grip for passengers who are out on the rocky trails of the Rubicon. While a set of durable, all-weather mats fit like a glove and feature a graphic design inspired by rugged Moab trails. Mopar has also included a Mopar mesh and solid sun bonnets, to enhance UV-tested protection when the hardtop is removed.
