Balancing exceptional power, capability, and style is no easy feat, but the all-new 2020 Jeep® Gladiator manages to do just that. This anxiously awaited pickup truck is sure to make a splash when it’s released this year, and it’s raking in awards in the meantime. This past April, the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator was awarded a spot on the Wards 2019 10 Best Interiors list.
It’s uncommon to see pickup trucks on this highly competitive list, but the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator definitely earned its place among the very best. The WardAuto managing editor sang the praises of the new truck, stating that “The all-new Jeep® Gladiator is much more than a Wrangler SUV with a bed attached.” Although the truck does feature a removable top — it’s the only mid-size pickup to have one — the Gladiator also features “loads of clever storage options,” making it the perfect vehicle for both the worksite and while out adventuring.
The Gladiator features a distinctly Jeep® design inside and out, and Ralph Gilles, the Head of Design, FCA is quite proud of it. As he states, “The Gladiator’s rugged interior styling is a subtle balance of premium materials, must-have features, and technology that turns the basic daily drive into an adventure.”
The Gladiator’s cabin is both durable and smart, featuring tough materials without sacrificing comfort or convenience. To keep you connected while traveling off the beaten path, the Gladiator features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration technology.
To determine the winner of the awards, Wards evaluated 33 vehicles across various criteria. All vehicles considered were either new or significantly redesigned for the upcoming model years, 2019 and 2020.
