All-New Jeep Gladiator Gets Muddy

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator has been dubbed the most capable midsize truck ever. Recently, it rolled up its wheel wells and got a bit muddy.

The 25th Annual Mudfest Competition

Well, more than just a bit muddy, actually. The site was the 25th annual Mudfest competition. The renowned event, hosted by the Northwest Automotive Press Association, saw 25+ auto journalists test out 20+ high-performance vehicles.

“The 2019 NWAPA Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year competition featured the most diverse group of vehicles we’ve seen in its 25-year history,” NWAPA President John Vincent said.

Vehicles were driven on paved and off-road routes at The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Washington over the course of two days.

And as tests go, one thing became absolutely certain: the Gladiator passed with flying colors.  

2020 Jeep Gladiator Dominates

Journalists tested 22 vehicles from 14 different manufacturers in order to determine winners across 6 categories: Subcompact Utility, Compact and Mid-size Utility, Family Utility, Premium Utility, Trucks and Extreme Capability. There was also a top overall winner.

The Gladiator took home the top spot in the following categories:

  • Top Overall Vehicle
  • Pickup Trucks (2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon)
  • Extreme Capability (2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon)
  • NW Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year (2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon)

New Jeep Gladiator Performance Specs

With the Gladiator’s long list of performance specs, is its Mudfest domination really all that surprising?

All Gladiator models are Trail Rated with a badge indicating that they are designed to perform in a variety of challenging off-road conditions.

These performance categories include traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording.

And remember, the Gladiator is the first ever open-air truck in the industry.

Don’t just push boundaries—Erase them!
