Ford Maverick Wins 2022 North American Truck of the Year

2020: Jeep Gladiator
Jeep has not offered a pickup in its lineup for nearly 30 years, but for 2020 the truck returned in the shape of the new Gladiator. This was not an easy win for the Jeep pickup truck, given the tough competition. The all-new Gladiator beat two strong finalists: the Ford Ranger and the Jeep’s distant cousin, the Ram Heavy Duty. Gladiator is the second Jeep to win this coveted award, the first being the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The new truck still carries the attributes and standout features of the Wrangler — including its legendary off-road capability, open-top driving, and even the removable doors and folding windshield. But it is also a properly modern pickup truck with the utility and equipment to match or exceed all other midsize trucks on the market. For truck shoppers seeking the capability of a Wrangler and the utility of a pickup truck, the Gladiator manages to combine these qualities without diminishing either of them.
