The Rocky Mountain Automotive Press (RMAP) has named the all-new Jeep® Gladiator its 2020 “Truck of the Year”. RMAP is a professional association comprised of 95 automotive media members in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico, Arizona, Nebraska, and Kansas. This year marks the 14th annual Rocky Mountain Vehicle of the Year awards event. The goal is to recognize trucks that are all-new or significantly revised for the 2020 model year. In order to be eligible for the award, vehicles must be in the Rocky Mountain regional press fleet and available for RMAP members to test.
“As the voting finished up for the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press vehicle of the year, we were thrilled to have the 2020 Jeep Gladiator come out on top,” said RMAP President Craig Conover. “When it comes to an iconic name, Jeep has to be one of the top in the industry and we at RMAP definitely felt the new Gladiator was worthy of this award. We are thrilled to have it as our Truck of the Year in the Rocky Mountain region.”
For RMAP’s Truck of the Year award, the vehicle nominating committee considered a number of attributes, including performance, fuel economy, value, and vehicle features, to narrow down the field to three finalists. After voting by the entire RMAP membership was tallied, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator was voted the winner.
The win adds another award to the already impressive first model year showing of the midsized Jeep Gladiator. Gladiator has taken home some of the biggest honors in the automotive world this year, winning FOUR WHEELER Magazine’s “2020 Truck of the Year” and the “North American Truck of the Year” titles.
