The Gladiator: An Unexpected Interior
The name Jeep is synonymous with performance, and their Gladiator truck is a force to be reckoned with. While their head-turning pickup truck boasts incredible work capability and Jeep’s off-roading athleticism, drivers and critics have been pleasantly surprised by its high-quality interior. Let’s take a look at what sets the Gladiator’s cabin apart from the competition.
Space for Everyone
The Gladiator’s tall, angular frame not only evokes the iconic profile that Jeep is known for, but it also allows for a generous amount of interior space. Even your taller passengers will enjoy ample space overhead, and both rows provide plenty of legroom to relax and enjoy the ride. The driver’s seat presents an unobstructed view of the road ahead, and up to five people can ride in refreshingly plush, well-cushioned seating with abundant bolstering and posture support. Your youngest passengers can also ride along securely thanks to the back row’s two sets of LATCH car-seat connections.
While the durable interior is ready for action, it’s by no means spartan in style or function. Jeep has fitted the Gladiator with handsome materials from front to back, and smooth cloth upholstery comes standard. The base model also sports a folding soft top with a sunroof, and the truck’s dynamic trim range offers a variety of features to customize your cabin. Jeep’s optional interior upgrades include premium cloth upholstery or rich leather with embroidered seatbacks, light Tungsten or Rubicon Red stitching, and platinum chrome bezels. You can also opt for a wrapped dashboard, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as heating in the front seats and steering wheel. In true Jeep fashion, you can detach the doors, remove the top, and even lower the windshield to embrace the great outdoors any time you hit the road.
Technology at Your Fingertips
The truck’s dash comes equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system, and the Gladiator can be equipped with some cutting-edge tech for entertainment and assistance. A rearview camera comes standard, and Jeep also offers available features like a navigation system, smartphone connectivity, automatic emergency braking, and satellite radio. Other available safety systems include rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning.
