Jeep Gladiator Named ‘Truck of the Year’

One hundred per cent Jeep®, 100 per cent truck and 100 per cent a winner, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator has been named ‘Truck of the Year’ in the annual DoubleClutch.ca Awards.


The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator is the most capable midsize truck ever, built on a rich heritage of tough, dependable Jeep trucks with an unmatched combination of rugged utility, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, clever functionality and versatility, and best-in-class towing and 4×4 payload.

About the 2020 Jeep Gladiator

Available with three different powertrain combinations and equipped with a versatile cargo box, Jeep Gladiator is built to handle the demands of an active lifestyle while delivering an open-air driving experience in a design that is unmistakably Jeep.

Combining traditional Jeep attributes with strong truck credentials, the Jeep Gladiator is a unique vehicle capable of taking passengers and cargo anywhere. A multitude of technology features, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and safety features, such as Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, adaptive cruise control and Forward Collision Warning-Plus, further Gladiator’s appeal.

All Gladiator models are Trail Rated with a badge indicating that the vehicle is designed to perform in a variety of challenging off-road conditions identified by five key consumer-oriented performance categories: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording.

Gladiator Rubicon models are equipped with signature red tow hooks, Rock-Trac® 4×4 system, featuring a two-speed transfer case with a 4:1 low-range gear ratio, front and rear heavy-duty Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lok® electric front- and rear-axle lockers, segment-exclusive electronic sway bar disconnect, cab and bed rock rails and standard 33-inch Falken Wildpeak All-Terrain off-road tires.

“Jeep Gladiator continues to rewrite the definition of what makes a compelling and capable midsize pickup,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, FCA Canada. “On- or off-road, towing or hauling, top down or doors off, it’s a truck that has earned the praise of the Jeep faithful and critics like the editors at DoubleClutch.ca.”

‘Truck of the Year’

This year is the seventh that the DoubleClutch.ca Awards have been handed out. Seven editors road test over 250 vehicles a year and vote on each according to more than 50 factors – everything from powertrain, refinement and fuel efficiency, to curb appeal, infotainment and advanced driver assist features are considered.

This Canadian award for ‘Truck of the Year’ comes less than a month after Jeep Gladiator was also named to Car and Driver’s 10Best, amongst other recent accolades.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
