2020 Jeep Gladiator Docs Leaked Online

2020 jeep gladiator (1)

Images and texts for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator were briefly posted on Fiat Chrysler’s website before they were taken down. Luckily, one individual was able to save the docs before they were removed from the media site. Everything we expect the Gladiator to be was confirmed. These are all extremely important information since many are waiting for the launch of the Gladiator.

According to the leaked document, the 2020 Gladiator will come with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that can be paired to either an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. We expect for this pairing to offer the same 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque as in the other Wrangler vehicles. Jeep would be naught to leave Wrangler behind and create something more powerful than its most iconic vehicle.

But there’s also an option for those who want more power from the Gladiator. There will be an optional 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 and if the current configuration for the Grand Cherokee will be the basis, then Gladiator’s diesel engine might be able to cough up 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.

The spec sheet, which was thankfully salvaged, lists the Gladiator’s maximum towing capacity at 7,600 pounds (probably using the diesel engine) and a payload of up to 1,600 pounds. There are two kinds of four-wheel-drive systems that will be available, as well as Dana 44 axles joined with electronic lockers front and rear. There’s also the expected electronic swaybar disconnect and 33-inch tires. All of these should transform the Gladiator into a functional and efficient off-roader.

Here’s another thing that separates the Gladiator: it has an open-air ride capability. That’s something no competitor of Gladiator can offer. We expect that the standard roof would be a soft top and that looks to be what Jeep is planning. The document, however, showed that two hard tops will also be part of the equation.

The new Gladiator will have a five-foot bed and a fold-down windshield which purists will absolutely love.

2019 Ford Ranger Pickup Starts At $25,395

2019 ford ranger

Following a configuration tool leak last week, Ford officially announced pricing for its 2019 Ford Ranger. The base price is priced a little higher at $25,395 compared to the leak, but it’s just a $300 difference so that should not cause a problem.

The official report from Ford revealed that there would be no regular-cab model available, which may disappoint some customers who are fans of simple trucks. Then again, the Chevy Colorado, the GMC Canyon, the Nissan Frontier, and the Toyota Tacoma are not available with a regular cab either. This decision should not come as a surprise for Ford fans.

The $25,395 price tag was for the entry-level XL with an extended cab and two-wheel drive. The old price is still available, but you will have to get the chassis cab version of the XL SuperCab, which no regular customer would be looking for. The higher trim levels, of course, are priced higher but you’ll get a lot more gorgeous specs and tech features.

Here are all the prices of the trim levels, including the destination charge: $25,395 (XL SuperCab 2WD), $29,555 (XL SuperCab 4WD), $27,615 (XL SuperCrew 2WD), $31,775 (XL SuperCrew 4WD), $29,035 (XLT SuperCab 2WD), $33,035 (XLT SuperCab 4WD), $31,210 (XLT SuperCrew 2WD), $35,210 (XLT SuperCrew 4WD), $33,305 (Lariat SuperCab 2WD), $37,305 (Lariat SuperCab 4WD), $35,480 (Lariat SuperCrew 2WD), and $39,480 (Lariat SuperCrew 4WD).

Among the current crop of small pickup trucks, the Ranger has the highest base price. The Nissan Frontier starts at $19,965, the Colorado at $21,590, the Canyon at $22,095, and the Tacoma at $24,740. All of these come with naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines. The Ranger’s base model comes with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder, which is the same one in the EcoBoost Mustang and the Focus RS.

For the V6 models, the Ranger is only beaten by the Colorado at $25,345. The Frontier starts at $26,195, the Canyon at $27,630, and the Tacoma at $31,365.

 

2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible Images Leaked

The new 2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible isn’t due for a reveal until the middle of next year, but we’re lucky enough to see its spy shots. The car was without its camouflage and was being driven around Loch Assynt in Scotland. Clearly, this was a secret photoshoot that would be used for marketing purposes later.

Regardless, we love to see the BMW 8 Series Convertible in all its glory. The drop-top version has a large kidney grille, chiseled front bumper, and slim LED headlamps similar with the coupe version revealed at the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race last month. At the back, the wide taillights and gaping chrome exhausts also remain. All these point out to one thing: the model we see here is the range-topping M850i.

The model will be using a fabric roof to save on weight, which is essential because of the extra weight that comes from strengthening the flanks to make up for the “reduced structural integrity” due to the loss of the fixed roof. Overall, this drop-top version will weigh around 2,000kg.

The engine lineup will be similar with the coupe. The base model BMW 8 Series Convertible would be a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel motor that can make 320 horsepower. The range-topping M850i variants will get a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 530 horsepower and can go 0 to 62mph in 4 seconds. That is slightly higher than the coupe’s 3.7 seconds because the convertible is on the heavier side.

All of the models will use BMW’s xDrive four-wheel-drive system, as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission. The M850i will also have an active rear-wheel steering, a sports exhaust, and a limited-slip differential on the rear axle.

Before the 8 Series Convertible makes it full debut, however, the German automaker will first unleash the all-new 3 Series Saloon, the Z4 roadster, and the X7 SUV.

3 Things We Need To Know About The 2019 Volvo S60

2019 Volvo S60

Volvo already presented the V60 before critics and car enthusiasts at this week’s 2018 Geneva Motor Show. This means that the Swedish automaker is gearing for a reveal of both the S60 and the V60 sometime soon. We’re particularly hoping that it will happen during the New York International Auto Show at the end of this month after all, both cars are tagged as 2019 models due to the showrooms later this year.

Now, Swedish website Teknikens Varld posted a photo of the new S60 from the rear, contrary to the front-facing photo that Volvo released a week ago. This means we have more info on how the 2019 Volvo S60 will look like.

1. Scaled-down S90

Just like before, the new S60 will look like a scaled-down version of the S90. This makes sense since the V60 also happens to be a miniscule V90 in design and style. The interior of the S60 should be very near what we saw in the V60’s cabin.

2. Longer model

Much like the V60, which is five inches longer than the model it replaced, the S60 will also be lengthier over the current generation S60. There’s no word yet on the size difference, but we’re expecting somewhere along the same lines of the difference between the current V60 and the new V60—yes, a whooping five inches. The extra length, at least 3.75 inches, will be distributed to the wheelbase that will increase the legroom for rear-seat passengers.

3. T5 and T6 engines

The S60 will arrive with T5 and T6 engines that will be able to produce 250 and 316 horsepower, respectively. Plug-in hybrid models are to be expected and these will use twin engines to power them up. The T8, in particular, is already in the schedule, but it won’t be available for US customers.

The new 2019 Volvo S60 will be the first model produced at Volvo’s plant in Charleston, South Carolina.
