"Truck of the Year."
“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.
