The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator is picking up another award! It has been named the Official Winter Truck of New England. The truck picked up the title at the 2020 New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA) winter vehicle competition. This was the Gladiator’s first year of eligibility at the event.
For the competition, NEMPA members examined a wide variety of vehicles in several categories from multiple automakers. The winners were picked by a jury of journalists from Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
John Paul, the president of New England Motor Press Association, said: “The Jeep Gladiator is the Swiss Army knife of Jeep, it is a serious off-road vehicle, useful pickup truck, comfortable passenger vehicle, competent highway cruise that easily dominated winter in New England. The Jeep Gladiator proves itself as the best all-around pickup truck and makes it the clear choice as the 2020 New England Motor Press Association Winter Pickup Truck of the Year.”
The 2020 Gladiator was engineered to be the most off-road capable Jeep truck ever. This awesome truck is famous for its rugged capability and strong performance. It can handle nearly any kind of terrain and almost all weather conditions. It brings back the classic cargo bed, so there’s plenty of room for all your belongings. There’s also a lot of interior cargo space, and plenty of room for all your passengers.
The Gladiator is built with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s equipped with an all-new high-strength steel frame, heavy-duty axles, new coil rear suspension and the largest brakes in its class. It also has a Best-in-Class 1,700-pound 4×4 payload, and an available Best-in-Class 7,650-pound gas towing capacity. You can haul boats, campers, oversized toys, and almost anything else on your next adventure.
It’s Trail Rated, which means it has great traction control, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording. The Mojave trim is also Desert Rated, which means it has high-speed off-road capability and performance, and it can handle grueling desert and sand environments. It’s the first Jeep brand vehicle to earn the Desert Rated badge.
The Gladiator is packed with standard and available features that will make any drive easier and keep you connected along the way. These include a touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a fold-down rear seatback, heated front seats, keyless entry, push button start, a rechargeable Bluetooth speaker, and a lockable storage bin.
There are also over 80 safety and security features, so you and your passengers will always be protected on the road. These include a rear back-up camera, tire pressure monitoring system, electronic stability control, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning.
The Jeep Trackhawk also won the Driver’s Choice Award at the NEMPA winter vehicle competition. The Trackhawk is a trim level of the Grand Cherokee. It has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, and it can reach 60 MPH in just 3.5 seconds. The 2019 Ram 1500 won Official Winter Truck of New England last year.
