Jeep adds Altitude trim to Gladiator lineup for 2020 model year
"Our Jeep Gladiator Altitude model is a direct response to customers who ask for a 'blacked-out' look directly from the factory. The Jeep Altitude models continue to resonate with customers and adding Gladiator completes this lineup," said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA North America. "We are thrilled that the popular Altitude model joins the Gladiator lineup and is another way for Jeep to connect with customers."

The Gladiator Altitude joins the newer Gladiator High Altitude and Gladiator Mojave in the Jeep trucks lineup. The High Altitude model is more refined than the Altitude while the Mojave delivers desert terrain-conquering prowess.
The new 2020 Gladiator Altitude is based on the Gladiator Sport S. On the outside, it features a body-color grille with Dark Gray throats and headlamp rings, body-color fender flares, and black Jeep and Trail Rated badging. The truck rides on 18-inch Granite Crystal aluminum wheels wrapped in 255/70R18 Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain tires.
A black Freedom hardtop is standard on Gladiator Altitude while the dual top is available.
The truck has standard black cloth seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel with black stitching and Wizard Black instrument panel mid-bolster and bezels.
Jeep equips each Gladiator Altitude with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard. An eight-speed automatic transmission is available.
Gladiator Altitude models will be available in Jeep showrooms early in the third quarter.
Gladiator Altitude is available in Black, White, Firecracker Red, Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Sting Gray, Hydro Blue, Gator and Gobi paint jobs.
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Altitude Edition is priced at $40,340 and comes with an additional $1,495 destination charge.
