These advanced materials can be found from bumper to bumper on the all-new midsize truck.
The Gladiator features a body-on-frame design that uses advanced materials and engineering to be lightweight, yet stiff and durable, with an all-new lightweight, high-strength steel frame.
Lightweight, high-strength aluminum can also be found throughout the Gladiator.
The doors are made from lightweight, high-strength aluminum, along with the hinges, hood, fenders and windshield frame. At the rear of the Gladiator, the tailgate is also made from aluminum.
Other ways the Jeep engineering team looked to manage weight included using hollow track and stabilizer bars, aluminum engine mounts and steering gear.
These innovations help curtail weight and boost fuel economy.
