2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Plenty of Fun, Even without a Desert

2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Plenty of Fun, Even without a Desert
When the Jeep Gladiator came out last year, it marked the first time Jeep had made a pickup truck in decades. Until now, the most capable version you could buy has been the Rubicon. That’s still the case if you’re planning on crawling slowly over rocks and steep grades, but if you’re looking for a Gladiator that can tackle sand dunes, undulating hills, and dirt roads as fast as possible, the Mojave is the better choice, and overall, I think it’s the best Gladiator model you can buy at the moment. I’ll start out by saying that I didn’t actually drive the Gladiator Mojave in the desert, since options for that are pretty limited here in the Chicago area, and my usual off-road trails in the state were closed due to COVID-19.

I am a big Jeep Wrangler fan, but I really wish they offered a V8 option. As it is now only a V6 is available. If you want a V8 in your Wrangler, you have to go aftermarket.
