The 2020 Jeep® Gladiator Rubicon and the Ram Power Wagon are among the top trucks on the market, offering bold exterior designs, capable powertrains, and the latest high-tech features. These two models also recently earned the Gold Winch award from the editors at The Fast Lane Truck, which puts trucks through a series of tough tests to determine the best models available.
The Gold Winch awards are given to trucks that perform best over a 12-month period of real-world testing. A team evaluates factors including fuel economy, capabilities, handling, and comfort. The editors at TFLtruck also score vehicles based on an off-road index, which determines how well models perform on difficult trails in Colorado and Ontario, Canada. The Jeep® Gladiator Rubicon won in the Best Midsize Off-Road truck category, while the Ram Power Wagon won the Best Heavy-Duty Off-Road truck segment.
“The competition was very tough this year. In the end, the Jeep® Gladiator Rubicon stood above the rest based on its raw off-road capability and the fun aspect of top-down doors-off adventure driving. The final decision was unanimous,” said Andre Smirnov, managing editor at TFLtruck.com.
The editors noted that the Gladiator Rubicon did so well because this model has a certain open-air freedom, impressive capabilities, and unmatched off-road performance. The Ram Power Wagon won thanks to its two-inch factory lift kit, a 12,000-pound winch for off-road driving, and a tuned suspension with locking differentials.
