The 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon has been named 2020 Pickup of the Year by Four Wheeler magazine.
"The new Jeep Gladiator is the truck many buyers have been waiting years for," Four Wheeler Editor Ken Brubaker said in a press release. "After a week of testing in a variety of challenging environments, the Gladiator proved that it is all truck and all Jeep, which is a formidable combination. Mix in the impressive Rubicon package that includes Tru-Lok differential lockers, Rock-Trac transfer case with 4-to-1 low range, front disconnecting stabilizer bar and full skid-plating, and it's clear the Gladiator is at the front of the class."
Jeep also won this year’s SUV of the Year designation from Four Wheeler, published by MotorTrend Group.
"When the Gladiator was first announced there was concern that it would be too much truck and not enough Jeep, or too much Jeep and not enough truck," MotorTrend Group Content Director Sean Holman said in the release. "If anything, our testing has proven that Jeep has hit the sweet spot with the Gladiator, giving customers one of the finest off-road-capable midsize trucks on the market."
