A common questions being asked by Iowa Jeep fans is, "Is there a Jeep Wrangler pickup?" The Jeep Wrangler is the true king of off-roading, and won Motor Trend's SUV of the Year last year. And due to years of rumors about a Jeep pickup truck, a lot of Jeep drivers were awaiting the pickup version of the Jeep Wrangler.

The all-new Jeep Gladiator, a midsize pickup truck based on the Wrangler, released this year to fanfare and heaps of praise from drivers and critics alike. It combines the best features of the Jeep Wrangler with best-in-class capability. The result is the Wrangler pickup that so many Jeep owners had dreamed of. Below, we're going to recap some of the Jeep Gladiator's best features, so that our Ankeny, IA customers can decide if a pickup truck based on the Wrangler is right for them.

Jeep Gladiator - The Wrangler Pickup You've Been Waiting For

In recent years, Jeep's lineup has grown more and more diverse. Many Iowa families are choosing Jeep's SUVs as the best vehicles for their needs due to their comfort, features, and drivability. But Jeep's core fanbase has long revolved around the legendary Jeep Wrangler. With its iconic look, unparalleled off-road prowess, and a level of customization few vehicles can match, the Wrangler has long stood alone. But now the Jeep Gladiator has joined its ranks, sharing its platform and off-road ability, but with the added utility of a pickup truck.

Looking at the Jeep Gladiator, Iowa shoppers will immediately note its resemblance to the Wrangler. But with an extended wheelbase and pickup bed, the Gladiator represents a truly unique vehicle. All Gladiator models are 4x4, and powered by the Wrangler's V6 engine. Its powerful frame helps provide best-in-class towing of 7,650 lbs, while the ability to remove the top and doors makes it the only convertible pickup truck available in Iowa.

And while Jeep vehicles outside the Wrangler all have a Trailhawk trim, the iconic Rubicon was always unique to the Wrangler. Would a Wrangler pickup get the same kind of off-road equipment? Or would there be compromises. Luckily for Central Iowa drivers, the all-new Jeep Gladiator Rubicon pickup is just as aggressive an off-roader as its Wrangler sibling. With all the same Rubicon equipment and available options, the Jeep Gladiator sets a new standard for off-roading in a pickup truck.
