The Jeep Gladiator arrives in Australia and it’s now available for test drives at dealerships nationwide.

The vehicle described as the one and only convertible lifestyle truck as landed. Yep, that’s right, the Jeep Gladiator arrives in Australia.

At launch the Jeep Gladiator will be available in Overland, Rubicon and Launch Edition variants, the latter limited to just 100 units, and they’re now available for test drives at dealerships across the country.

We got our hands on a Gladiator at the vehicle’s press launch in New Zealand and will bring you a full Aussie review as soon Jeep Australia hands us the keys.

“Thousands have indicated their interest in the Jeep Gladiator over the past few months and our dealers are excited to add such a unique vehicle to their product line-up,” Kevin Flynn, Jeep Australia Managing Director said. “The Gladiator builds on Jeep’s iconic character and renowned merits, creating the one-of-a-kind convertible truck with unparalleled 4×4 credentials.”

“The past few months have been tough on Australians and with COVID-19 restrictions beginning to slightly ease, there is no better time to jump in your vehicle and explore what this beautiful country has to offer,” Flynn said.

All Gladiators are powered by Jeep’s 3.6-litre petrol V6 engine mated to an eight-speed auto transmission.
