Jeep is known for building some of the most capable off-road vehicles on the face of the Earth, and modern offerings such as the classic Wrangler, and mountain-conquering Gladiator prove that the brand has not gone soft on its promise. The Gladiator is more capable than ever thanks to a new full-time four-wheel-drive system, and the introduction of the EcoDiesel V6, but as always, Jeep vans have found a way to turn this off-road warrior into an absolute animal. Barrett-Jackson recently sold a Demon-powered 2020 Jeep Gladiator, and it looks like it's ready to get down and boogie.
Hiding behind the iconic seven-slot grille of this Gladiator is an 850-hp 6.2-liter Demon crate engine boosted by a 2.7-liter supercharger. All that power is channeled to all four wheels via a reinforced 8HP75 8-speed automatic transmission. The engine features a duel-fuel pump system that is capable of handling 1,000 horsepower. Cooling is handled by a massive Griffin radiator and air-to-water intercooler system, and the rest of the driveline has been strengthened to cope with the excessive power with an Adams driveshaft, custom-built 1350 front and rear drivelines, Pro Rock Hardcore Plus XD60 front, and rear axles, and a 72.5-inch wide-track Eaton E-locker. This beast rolls on a set of 20-inch Fuel Zephyr wheels wrapped in 40×15.50×20 Toyo MT tires.
The bold exterior of this Demon Gladiator features a spotless black paint job highlighted by red accents on the wheels and body trim. The word "Possessed" is splattered on the side of the hood, and could be a reference to the classic American death metal band founded in 1983 in California. On the back, there's a JCR bed-mounted spare tire carrier, and at the front sits a Mopar stubby steel bumper and WARN Zeon 10S winch. This glorious monster sold for an astounding $198,000. You could buy six base model Jeep Gladiators for that price.
