April 18, 2019 , New York - The all-new 2020 Jeep® Gladiator has been named one of Wards 10 Best Interiors for 2019.
 
“The all-new Jeep Gladiator is much more than a Wrangler SUV with a bed attached,” said Tom Murphy, WardsAuto managing editor. “Gladiator’s second row is completely new, with loads of clever storage options. The second-row seats were redesigned to fold down for storage behind, and for seat bottoms to lift up for storage below. The storage bins can be locked, which is important in the wilderness for those who will leave their vehicles unattended perhaps for days.
 
“Did we mention that every Gladiator is convertible?,” Murphy added. “How many midsize pickups in the U.S. have removable tops? Only the Jeep Gladiator.”
 
The Wards editorial staff selected the 10 winners after evaluating 33 vehicles. All contenders for the annual award were completely new or significantly redesigned for the 2019 or 2020 model years. Wards editors scored the vehicles on aesthetics, comfort, fit-and-finish, material quality and ergonomics. 
 
“The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is a modern take on authentic Jeep design combining versatility and function in a manner that is clearly inspired by our legendary heritage,” said Ralph Gilles, Head of Design, FCA. “The Gladiator’s rugged interior styling is a subtle balance of premium materials, must-have features and technology that turns the basic daily drive into an adventure. The truck encompasses the spirit of the Jeep brand while checking all the boxes our customers desire.”

Wards announced this year’s winners at the New York International Auto Show.
