“The Jeep Gladiator is not only the world’s most capable midsize pickup, it’s now the North American Truck of the Year as well,” Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA North America, said in a press release. “This honor is a testament to our customers who demand the very best and the Gladiator delivers with all of the 4×4 capability and versatility expected of a Jeep vehicle.”

There are several reasons why a vehicle winning this award is important to its manufacturer. The overall difficulty in winning North American Truck of the Year honors lies in how it is determined. Most automotive awards come from a single publication or website. The North American Truck of the Year is based on evaluations from 50 experts that come from all parts of automotive journalism based in the United States and Canada.

Some of what is loved by the group of award jurors include the performance and capability provided by the 3.6-liter, Pentastar V-6 engine as well as its versatile cargo bed and its array of available cutting-edge technology that includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Finally, no discussion of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator would be complete without talking about its off-road capability. Every 2020 Gladiator trim grade is ‘Trail Rated’ that shows buyers the midsize pickup truck can handle just about anything. In particular, the Gladiator Rubicon is equipped with red tow hooks, Rock-Trac® 4×4 system and heavy-duty axels.
