Until this year, Jeep hadn’t built a pickup since 1992. That year, its Comanche was discontinued and the brand concentrated on its popular SUVs like the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. But the mid-size truck market has heated up over the last half-decade, and Jeep has finally brought another pickup to market. And it’s a good one.
The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator shares much of its design and components with the Wrangler Unlimited, and as a result, it’s packed with Jeep’s legendary off-road capability, as well as high levels of practicality and comfort. Recently, the Gladiator was named North American Truck of the Year award and claimed a spot on Car and Driver’s 10Best list. It’s also the only convertible pickup offered by any brand, and like the Wrangler, its doors are removable. It competes with the Ford Ranger, Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier, Honda Ridgeline, and the sales leader of the segment, the Toyota Tacoma.
