Motoring Research Says Jeep Gladiator Rubicon Is a Top Choice for Summer Travel
Although the experts at Motoring Research recently rounded up the 15 top family SUVs for summer road trips, they couldn’t resist including the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, an attention-getting pickup truck that’s all Jeep.
“It combines the abilities of the Wrangler SUV with a dose of extra practicality from the lengthy load bed,” according to Motoring Research writer John Redfern. “The attention the Gladiator has gained makes it hard to ignore.”
The Jeep Gladiator Rubicon is the top trim and is equipped with the standard 3.6-liter V6 paired to a six-speed manual transmission to generate 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It features a steel rear bumper, body-color grille with accents, dual vented hood embossed with “Rubicon” hood decals, cab and bed steel rock rails, and molded-in-color fender flares. The exterior also boasts a red “Trail Rated” badge.
“It offers a leftfield choice for those seeking the ultimate vacation vehicle, given the endless customization offered by the Gladiator. Remove the doors, lose the roof, and stick whatever lifestyle accessories you need in the load bed. Standard four-wheel drive will let you take the adventure almost anywhere,” Redfern reports.
Inside the Gladiator Rubicon distinguishes itself with bright interior accents. Rear compartment assist handles and coat hooks outfit the interior.
