Just how hot is the mid-size Truck market? Well, it’s so hot that even Hyundai is hard at work developing a mid-size pickup. Already, there are seven entries in this highly competitive class. Most have been around a while, but two new trucks recently entered the ring: all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator, which is based on the exceedingly popular Jeep Wrangler, and the 2020 Ford Ranger, which debuted a year ago and will share its chassis with the coming 2021 Ford Bronco.

Few vehicles were as highly anticipated over the last year as the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. The brand’s first pickup since 1992 has won the North American Truck of the Year award and quickly became a sensation. Demand outstripped supply, causing some overeager buyers to pay an extra $10,000 to jump to the front of the line. Jeep dealers weren’t complaining. Gladiatormania has leveled off, however. It’s still a very popular truck, but there’s no longer a need to pay a king’s ransom to get your hands on one. And that’s good news for anyone looking to buy Jeep’s new pickup. Let's take a closer look at the 2020 Gladiator and see how it stacks up against its rivals.
