No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. That is a truck bed on a Jeep.

Meet the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, the latest midsize truck to join the fray with the Ford Ranger and the Toyota Tacoma.

Up front it looks like a Wrangler, and sports the same 3.6-liter V6 engine, good for 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.

But out back there is a 5-foot bed, capable of handling up to 1,600 pounds of payload.

Maximum towing is 7,650 pounds. That's best in class, for those keeping score.

Every Gladiator is four-wheel drive, but Sport, Sport S and Overland trims do not have locking differentials.

You'll have to move up to the Rubicon if you want lockers and a front sway bar disconnect.

The departure angle of the Gladiator is 26 degrees, another best-in-class feature.

That long wheelbase is a killer, stunting the breakover angle to 20 degrees.
