The 2020 Toyota Tacoma and 2020 Jeep Gladiator are closely rated mid-size pickups. The Tacoma is the established rival and the longest continuous mid-size pickup on sale stretching back to the 1980s—before it was called a Tacoma. The Gladiator, by contrast, is the newest mid-size pickup on sale, even though Jeep is hardly a newcomer.
The Tacoma and Gladiator serve broad, and growing (older) audiences. Aging Millenials or Zillenials like us may want a truck to haul their surfboard to the airport, or a truck to carry sound equipment to the next garage. Or just a truck to pick up the kids from school. The good news: We have options.
