2020 Jeep Gladiator Safety Review

2020 Jeep Gladiator

If you’re like many drivers in the greater Chicago area, then you’re probably excited about the launch of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck. You may also be curious to know about how this truck keeps you safe around Skokie, Park Ridge, and Forest Park.

In fact, this vehicle comes with a whole host of safety technologies! To tell you all about them, the team at Marino Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram put together this 2020 Jeep Gladiator safety review.

2020 Jeep Gladiator Driver-Assist Features

2020 Jeep Gladiator Payload

The 2020 Gladiator features several available driver-assist systems that are designed to help you be even more aware of your surroundings. These features include:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Rear Cross Path Detection (RCPD)

It also comes with available ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System, which can help you safely and conveniently dock your truck when you reach your destination by providing an audible alert if you’re getting too close to the object behind.

Infotainment and Safety Technology for the 2020 Gladiator

In addition to its driver-assist features, the Gladiator can keep you safe with its many infotainment technologies, which you can access through a 5-inch, 7-inch, or 8.4-inch touchscreen display.

When you’re in reverse, this display can transform into a live video feed of the area directly behind your vehicle. This is called the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera and can add an extra layer of safety and convenience when parallel parking or backing out of a parking space in a crowded lot.

If you’re on the move, you can take advantage of Bluetooth® smartphone connectivity as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration to make hands-free phone calls from behind the wheel. With available voice commands, you can safely place or answer important calls without taking your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road.

Handling and Off-Road Safety: Jeep Gladiator

When you head off-road in your Jeep Gladiator, you’ll have the security of knowing that this truck earned the Trail Rated® badge for its off-road readiness. This distinction includes many safety features, like the enhanced traction control of a Jeep 4X4 system.

These 4-wheel drive (4X4) systems are known for helping drivers keep a firm grip and maximize handling capabilities in even the most extreme of conditions. For example, the available Rock-Trac® 4X4 system has a super low gear ratio to help you crawl over rocks or travel over loose dirt roads.

With the available forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera, you can plan ahead and use the gridlines on the display to chart the best path through the obstacles on your path.

If you do run up against something tough, the high-strength steel chassis and skid plates can help to keep passengers and your powertrain safe.

2020 Jeep Gladiator Towing

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator has a maximum towing capacity of 7,650 pounds when properly equipped, and it features several safety systems to help you stay in control while hauling all that weight.

For example, it comes with an available integrated trailer brake controller. This allows you to control your trailer’s brakes via a knob on the dashboard.

It also comes standard with Trailer Sway Control. If this system detects that your trailer may be moving too much, it’ll provide strategic braking and engine power adjustments to help you keep everything steady.
