AM General and FCA to co-develop Jeep Gladiator XMT


AM General, the people who made the Humvee and its civilian variant Hummer, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have partnered to develop the Jeep Gladiator Extreme Military-Grade Truck (XMT).

Apparently, AM General found the 2020 Gladiator with its 7,650 pounds (3,470 kg) of towing and up to 1,600 pounds (726 kg) of payload capacity as the ideal platform on which to develop the XMT concept.

The Gladiator XMT has been upfitted by AM General with both custom-built and commercially available military-grade parts to create an even more rugged truck that is ready to meet varied military customer requirements, the company said. It can also be customized based on the requirements.

The Jeep brand has an important military heritage, so we couldn’t be happier that AM General expressed interest in creating the Gladiator XMT. The all-new Jeep Gladiator boasts unmatched functionality, versatility and especially capability, including two advanced 4×4 systems, locking differentials, skid plates, tow hooks, and incredible approach, breakover and departure angles – the perfect foundation for this ultra-capable military concept vehicle. – Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand, North America

“We’re proud to partner with AM General, we look forward to gauging interest and gathering feedback on the Jeep Gladiator XMT, and we’re excited about potential future opportunities,” Morrison added.

Production is expected to begin in the second half of 2020. In addition to the gas model, Gladiator XMT would be offered to military customers as a diesel version too.
