Jeep Gladiator Mojave Ultimate High Performance

Jeep Gladiator Mojave Ultimate High Performance

Brought to you by St. Clair Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

The Gladiator is an all-new vehicle introduced by Jeep for the 2020 model year, and at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, we got to see the pickup truck in two new variants known as the High Altitude and the Mojave. While the High Altitude focuses primarily on luxurious features, the Mojave, which is sporting the brand's first-ever Desert Rated badge is ready to venture deep into the Sahara desert and come out on top. The new model was tested to handle intense heat and invasive terrain. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave, which we are expecting to see in the second quarter of 2020, is spanned from almost 80-years of legendary 4x4 capability by Jeep. We know you want to learn more, so sit back and relax as we dive headfirst into what the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave is made of.

What does the Desert Rated badge mean?

Great question! You're probably used to seeing Jeep's Trail Rated badge on the likes of the Gladiator, Wrangler, and Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, but the Desert Rated badge is brand new and as of right now only on the Gladiator Mojave. Desert Rated 4x4 Jeep vehicles have been put through the wringer in five grueling tests to make sure the vehicle can handle the harsh conditions and terrain of desert and san environments. The five categories Desert Rated vehicles are tested in are Traction, Ride Control and Stability, Maneuverability, Ground Clearance, and Desert Prowess.

What does the Desert Rated badge mean for the Gladiator Mojave?

So let's go over what each of the five Desert Rated categories means for the Gladiator Mojave. The Traction category ensures the Mojave is capable of conquering surfaces such as loose dirt, sand, and gravel. Maneuverability means the Mojave has responsive handling that allows the driver to navigate extreme angles and desert terrain with ease, while Ground Clearance means the Mojave is at a height that allows the Gladiator to crest dunes and floor it through the sand easily. You want to be comfortable when you're trekking over desert terrain, which is where the Ride Control and Stability category comes in. The new desert-tuned suspension in the Gladiator Mojave lets you ride in comfort. If you're going to adventure into the desert, you need to be able to handle the heat, and the Mojave has proven it can do just that in the Desert Prowess category, which has the Gladiator dealing with loose gravel, intense heat, and coarse sand.

The Jeep Gladiator Mojave uses new specially-tuned FOX 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks with external reservoirs, which features industry-exclusive Fox front hydraulic jounce bumpers. The Gladiator Mojave also takes advantage of a one-inch front suspension lift with a silver front skid plate, a reinforced frame, and stronger axles with cast-iron steering knuckles. The Mojave rides on 33-inch Falken Wildpeak All-Terrain tires while you'll be riding in aggressive front seats with integrated upper bolsters.

What does the Gladiator Mojave use for a 4x4 system?

The Gladiator Mojave tears it up through the desert with a Command-Trac 4x4 system that utilizes a two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, along with heavy-duty third-generation Dana 44 front and rear axles with a 4.10:1 axle ratio. That's not all either, the 4x4 system also takes advantage of the standard electronic-locking rear differential. The 4x4 system exceeds in challenging desert terrain and climbing sand dunes. When climbing sand dunes or anything else in the Mojave you can expect a 44.7-degree approach angle, a 20.9-degree breakover angle, a 25.5-degree departure angle, and a 11.6-inch best-in-class ground clearance.
