The Gladiator, Jeep's long-awaited Wrangler-based ute, has finally made its debut at the 2018 Los Angeles motor show.
Riding on a 3500mm wheelbase, the Gladiator is 493mm longer between the axles than a five-door Wrangler. Its frame is also 787mm longer than the largest Wrangler. In other words, it's going to be big.
The Gladiator's tray bed is about 1500mm long, with inbuilt tie-downs and an under-floor spare wheel mount capable of holding rolling stock up to 35 inches in diameter.
