The Gladiator pickup truck from Jeep has been a long time coming. The-based pickup had been rumored and teased ad nauseam before finally -- finally! -- debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show last year.

The 2020 Gladiator uses a completely different frame than the Wrangler, and while the front suspension hardware carries over unchanged, a more sophisticated five-link setup is fitted at the rear for better on-road handling and drivability. You can only buy a Gladiator with four doors -- unlike the Wrangler, which can be had with just two -- and there's only one, 5-foot bed option available.
The Good The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is currently the best off-road truck you can buy with class-leading towing of 7,650 pounds.
The Bad Utility comes with a long wheelbase, lowering the breakover angle.
The Bottom Line The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is über-capable in the dirt but it can still tow and haul with the best of them.
Only 24 will be built, and each will cost $200,000.

A two-door Gladiator is totally awesome, but it’s not a “shut up and take my money” affair just yet.
Jeep creates six gnarly Gladiator-based pickup trucks for its annual pilgrimage to Utah.
Not bad for a midsize truck with a $61,000 price tag.
April 4 is the only day you can order this special-edition, $60,815 Gladiator.
Jeep's long-awaited Gladiator stomps the competition with utility and off-road capability.
