2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon

2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon

Jeep began building pickups in 1947, but the streak ended when the Cherokee-based Comanche ceased production in 1992. For 2020, Jeep jumps back into this important market with the Gladiator. Though its name comes from the Wagoneer-derived Gladiator (later J-Series) pickups the brand sold between 1963 and 1987, it was arguably inspired more by the CJ-7-like 1981-85 Scrambler.

2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Series III

For decades, the iconic Jeep Wrangler off-road SUV has enjoyed being positioned in a segment of one. As such, Wrangler annual sales have hovered around 250,000 units in recent years, with almost all being sold at close to sticker price. Current Wrangler transaction prices are around $50,000, and can easily reach $60,000 on diesel models.

2009 Hummer H2 SUT

And just like that, the Hummer brand is back from the dead. Due in showrooms late in 2021, the all-new 2022 Hummer EV pickup truck will be a flagship of General Motors’ latest electric-vehicle initiative. This time, however, Hummer is a sub-brand of GMC, not a stand-alone brand. And this time, Hummer will not be shunned by the buying public when gas prices again spike—the new Hummer uses no gas.
