Just one look at the 2020 Jeep Gladiator and anyone who has seen a Jeep Wrangler before will identify it as a Jeep. It’s rugged and angular like the classic SUV, but it has a bed on the back of it. Plenty of drivers on the road today are too young to remember Jeep ever making a pickup truck, but the Gladiator is here to make people think twice about what a Jeep can be. Read on for information on how much the 2020 Jeep Gladiator can carry.
How Much Weight Can the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Carry?
The Jeep Gladiator is a mid-size truck, so it’s not built to carry or tow as much as large or heavy-duty class trucks. That being said, each trim level is rated for different payload limits. As with many trucks, the lowest trim level can carry the most weight due in part to having fewer features and accessories loaded on it from the start. The Sport trim is approved for a total payload of 1,600 lbs. which translates to 725.7478 kg.
Higher trim levels are limited to lower payloads. For example, the medium level Overland trim is rated for 1140 lbs. or 517.0953 kg. High trim levels like the Rubicon are similarly rated, allowing for 1200 lbs. in the bed, or about 544.3108 kg. Basically, as long as you remember not to exceed 500 kg in your 2020 Jeep Gladiator, you shouldn’t have any problems.
How Big is the Bed of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator?
For the first shot at a Jeep pickup truck in more than two decades, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator may have a slightly small bed for some people’s needs. If the tailgate is closed, the floor of the bed measures 60.3 in., or 1.53162 meters. The bed is slightly longer than it is wide, as the bed is only 44.8 in. or 1.13792 meters wide between the rear wheels. The opening to the tailgate itself is 50 in. or 1.27 meters. Overall, it’s a nearly square bed, but the Gladiator is a mid-size truck, it’s not designed to be a workhorse like a large size truck.
