Jeep® Brand Expands Gladiator Lineup With Altitude Model
  • New 2020 Jeep® Gladiator Altitude features unique “blacked out” exterior accents and 18-inch Granite Crystal wheels
  • Jeep Gladiator Altitude based on Gladiator Sport S
  • Gladiator Altitude available in Jeep showrooms early in third quarter
July 1, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The Jeep® brand is introducing a new edition of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator in the form of the Altitude model, delivering a new level of personalized content for a distinct appearance that is combined with legendary Jeep 4x4 capability.

“Our Jeep Gladiator Altitude model is a direct response to customers who ask for a ‘blacked-out’ look directly from the factory. The Jeep Altitude models continue to resonate with customers and adding Gladiator completes this lineup,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA North America. “We are thrilled that the popular Altitude model joins the Gladiator lineup and is another way for Jeep to connect with customers.”

Gladiator Altitude models will be available in Jeep showrooms early in the third quarter.

Jeep Gladiator Altitude
Based on the Sport S model, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Altitude’s exterior highlights include a body-color grille with Dark Gray throats and headlamp rings, body-color fender flares, black Jeep and Trail Rated badging and 18-inch Granite Crystal aluminum wheels wrapped in 255/70R18 Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain tires. A black Freedom hardtop is standard on Gladiator Altitude while the dual top is an available option.

Inside, the Gladiator Altitude features standard black cloth seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel with black stitching, Wizard Black instrument panel mid-bolster and bezels.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator, engineered from the ground up to be the most off-road capable Jeep truck ever, builds on a rich heritage of tough, dependable Jeep trucks with an unmatched combination of rugged utility, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, clever functionality and versatility.

Equipped with the proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and a versatile cargo box, Gladiator is built to handle the demands of an active lifestyle while delivering an open-air driving experience in a design that is unmistakably Jeep. Combining traditional Jeep attributes with strong truck credentials, the Jeep Gladiator is a unique vehicle capable of taking passengers and cargo anywhere.

All Gladiator models are Trail Rated with a badge indicating that the vehicle is designed to perform in a variety of challenging off-road conditions identified by five key consumer-oriented performance categories: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording.

Gladiator Altitude is available in Black, White, Firecracker Red, Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Sting Gray, Hydro Blue, Gator and Gobi.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Altitude Edition is priced at $40,340 (plus $1,495 destination).

So an Overland without any of internal bits upgraded. The only difference I see between the base overland and this is the upgraded electronics (stereo, speakers, power ports, color screens and electronics), side rails and seat heaters with lettered stitching. Are people really asking for this package? 2 grand more gets you a lot more options in a base overland.

wish I could have gotten a more blacked out look on my Sport S; value aside I like the cosmetics (plus I really wanted a white JT but that wasn't in the cards)

Trailer Brake Controller suggestions must've been "misplaced"

It looks the same to me. It's just an Overland without some "stuff"?

Any idea what the controller looks like? Or the cost? I optioned one in a Ram 2500 that looked about as basic as could be, but man it was nice and super functional when you needed it.

I spotted this package on the Jeep website a little while ago. I find this one quite appealing- HT and AT standard (extra cost on the Overland) comes with the larger wheels and AT tires, it alos appears to lack the little fender/bumper aero-bits on the Sport. I never liked the Overland running boards and I don't want leather seats. Optioned out with the extras I want, which I'd need to add to Overland anyway, it comes out a few grand cheaper

Jeep's website is a little confusing as it shows towing capacity at 7650 same as Sport S, but it also says Max tow not available (but standard on Sport S?)

And blacked out emblems. I hated my chrome and silver Overland emblems.

Same. They look awful. Luckily, mine was ordered with the Mopar Black tubular side steps instead. They look considerably better. My dealership located mine for me and I didn't even realize it had those until it got there. Nice surprise.

I tried to place a 2020 Gobi on Monday, but they said I just missed it by Friday. Was about to place a 2021 Hydro, but now I think I may wait...
