Late in 2018, Jeep® finally revealed the 2020 Gladiator, a ruggedly handsome pickup truck that offers best-in-class capabilities. We here at Transwest Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram didn’t think it could get much better than the Gladiator – until now. Recently, the rumor mill has been turning and it looks like there might be a high-performance version of the Gladiator in the works – and it will be called the Hercules.
Previously, during the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, Mark
Allen, Jeep®‘s head of design, mentioned that a high-speed off-road
vehicle would be on the brand’s agenda for its future lineup. While the Jeep®
Gladiator Hercules model hasn’t officially been signed off just yet, it
looks like prototypes of the performance pickup truck are being built for
If the Hercules does come to life, we can only speculate at
its power. It will have to offer more power than the Gladiator’s standard
3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which currently puts out 285 horsepower and 260
lb-ft of torque. The Gladiator Hercules will also probably utilize a variety of
Mopar aftermarket parts to give it even more aggressive styling.
Should this vehicle come to market, it will compete with the
Ford Ranger Raptor.
Few auto brands are as quintessentially American as Jeep®. Its name recognition surpasses that of companies like Ford or Chevrolet, and traces its origins to a military all-terrain vehicle. Since its inception, Jeep® models have been designed to take on any climate, with a capacity for off-road and on-road performance that people can depend on.
While most people think of the Jeep® Wrangler when Jeep®first crosses their minds, the brand’s lineup has only expanded to include other modern and upscale SUVs and crossovers. The family-friendly Jeep® Grand Cherokee, for example, comfortably accommodates all your needs with plenty of space, and models like the Compass and Renegade provide all the versatility and convenience of a small, smart crossover.
However, if the iconic Jeep® Wrangler is more your speed, then good news: it was just redesigned for the next generation for the 2018 model year, giving it more modern comforts and amenities.
A good introduction to Jeep® is certainly to get behind the wheel of one, and here at Transwest CDJR, we have plenty. Make sure to come and visit us soon for a test drive!
