For the 2020 model year, Jeep® introduced the world’s most capable off-road truck: the Gladiator. But the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator is more than just a rugged off-road warrior; it is also a sophisticated truck with an upscale and comfortable interior laden with the latest technology. As a testament to that fact, the Gladiator earned a spot on WardsAuto’s Wards 10 Best Interiors list for 2019, announced earlier this year at the New York International Auto Show.
Specifically, WardsAuto editors praised the Gladiator for its “clever storage options,” which include second-row seats that can fold down for more storage, seat bottoms that lift up to access storage beneath, and lockable storage bins, “which is important in the wilderness for those who will leave their vehicles unattended perhaps for days.”
And that’s not all. WardsAuto’s managing editor, Tom Murphy, also marveled at the Gladiator’s convertible capability: “Did we mention that every Gladiator is convertible? How many midsize pickups in the U.S. have removable tops? Only the Jeep® Gladiator.”
In total, WardsAuto considered 33 vehicles for the award and narrowed the list down to 10 based on comfort, material quality, ergonomics, fit-and-finish, and aesthetics.
“The 2020 Jeep® Gladiator is a modern take on authentic Jeep® design combining versatility and function in a manner that is clearly inspired by our legendary heritage,” remarked Ralph Gilles, Head of Design, FCA. “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 truck encompasses the spirit of the Jeep® brand while checking all the boxes our customers desire.”
