2020 Jeep Gladiator vs. Its Competition

2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon Launch Edition
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Mid-size pickup trucks are in the midst of a major resurgence.

The longstanding Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier have been usurped by fresher models with more convenience features and better performance.

The Frontier's often discounted, however, and the Tacoma has Toyota's sterling resale values in its favor.

The GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado are the same trucks under the skin and they were the first to reemerge a few years ago.

Both are starting to show some age in terms of their limited active safety gear, but they make a strong case for themselves.

The Ford Ranger returns for 2019 with a turbo-4 engine that promises good performance and impressive fuel economy.

5.0
The 2020 Ford Ranger mid-size pickup is a willing companion to weekend adventures. It’s our worst best friend.
4.8
The 2020 GMC Canyon has its virtues, but its design is beginning to feel old and it hasn’t done well in crash tests.
3.8
A new V-6 gives buyers a reason to shop the 2020 Nissan Frontier this year, but waiting for next year’s redesign is a better idea.

Myriad detail upgrades keep the 2020 Toyota Tacoma competitive in the increasingly competitive mid-size pickup truck market.
