  • Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter concept

    It wouldn't be the Jeep Moab Easter Safari without at least one restomod concept vehicle, and the M-175 Five Quarter concept carries on the tradition in an imposing manner. The M-175 Five Quarter concept, a nod to Jeep's past 1 1/4-ton pickups, is one of the six concepts Jeep produced for the 53rd annual Moab Easter Safari and one of the coolest. Aside from the J6 concept, which previews a potential production two-door Gladiator pickup truck, it's our favorite. But we digress. The restomod concept is based on an original 1968 Gladiator pickup produced for the U.S. military. Jeep entirely...

    Jeep boss says Hellcat engine fits in Wrangler and Gladiator, but there's a problem

    Jeep has admitted the Wrangler and new Gladiator pickup can stuff parent automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobile's supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V-8 under the hood, but there's a rather large roadblock. Head of the Jeep brand in North America, Tim Kuniskis, said the Hellcat engine "fits like a glove,"...

    Gladiator concepts to star at 2019 Easter Jeep Safari

    Jeep will once again use the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, to roll out a bevy of wild concepts—concepts that typically hint at what's coming down the line, either directly from Jeep or through the Jeep Performance Parts and Mopar catalogs. Naturally this year the focus is on the...

    7 ways the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is more than a Wrangler pickup truck

    A 5-foot pickup bed bolted behind the rear seat should clue even the least-keen observers that the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is not a Wrangler. As Motor Authority learned during a day with the 2020 Gladiator on muddy, rocky roads at the base of the Sierra Nevadas in California, Jeep’s first pickup...

  • 2020 Jeep Gladiator

    The 2020 Jeep Gladiator mid-size pickup truck has been priced from $35,040, including destination, Jeep confirmed on Saturday. That's about $2,000 higher than the base price of the related 4-door Wrangler, though we should point out that the Gladiator comes standard with the beefier Dana 44 axles found on the Wrangler's range-topping Rubicon trim. The Gladiator is also quite a bit more expensive than other contenders in the mid-size pickup truck segment, though once again it's worth mentioning that the Gladiator's off-road capability—the vehicle is essentially a Jeep Wrangler with a...

Oh, and for good measure, they tacked on a...

A forum staff member published what he calls inside information about Jeep looking into a high-performance Gladiator Hercules along the lines of a Ford Ranger Raptor. In addition, the forum website created renderings of the speculative model. Before enthusiasts get too excited, the forum claims such a model has not been given a green light for production...

    Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can be switched to RWD in minutes

    The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk benefits from a four-wheel-drive system to put its power down more effectively, but that means smokey burnouts are off limits. Or are they? It appears it only takes a few minutes to turn the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk into a burnout machine. The Drive first reported...

  • 2019 Jeep Renegade

    Jeep has plans for another model smaller than the current Renegade, and it appears an Italian plant will produce the vehicle. Automotive News (subscription required) reported Monday that the Pomigliano factory near Naples will be home to the unnamed Jeep model. The facility currently builds the Fiat Panda, and we surmised earlier this year the new Jeep could share quite a bit with a new Fiat Panda Cross. Don't expect to see the tiny Jeep make its way to North America, though. Its small size will keep it out of North American showrooms and the Renegade will remain the smallest offering. The...
