The all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator, of course. What—was this a private conversation? Sorry for butting in. We just thought you’d like to know that Jeep’s Wrangler-like pickup truck is quite an amazing specimen. An open-air cabin. A five-foot bed. Class-leading towing of 7,650 lbs. Off-road equipment galore. Yep, the Gladiator is a real marvel.
Ah! Sweet home Alabama. The Heart of Dixie. The house of Longleaf. The Yellowhammer State. Yet with so many gorgeous sights to see, Alabama rarely graces the covers of travel and road-trip magazines.

Hey, we’re not complaining, and neither should you – the 2019 Wrangler may sport a more retro look, but it remains one of the most capable off-road SUVs you’ll find anywhere.
Making its long-awaited debut at the 2018 Los Angeles
Auto Show, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator – not a new Scrambler, as it was rumored
to be called – is everything you love about the Wrangler, just in a rugged
truck mold. Yes, the doors come off. Yes, the rooftop pops back. Yes, even the
windshield folds forward. To put it simply, the upcoming Jeep Gladiator will
make every other pickup in the segment green with envy once it finds its way to
your local Jeep
After replacing the beloved Liberty in 2014, the Jeep Cherokee certainly had to grow its devoted fanbase from the ground up—and so it did. Now, five model-years later, the 2019 SUV is giving those devout Jeep Cherokee-ers something more to cheer about after a mid-cycle refresh.
