Jeep hits the trail with the Wrangler JT Gladiator Pick-up

At the end of World War II, Willys Overland emerged as a major player in the U.S. automobile industry. Having produced more than 600,000 vehicles speciically for the war effort, its role as a peace-time manufacturer would need to expand. In 1947, the irst Jeep “utility” truck rolled out of its Toledo, Ohio, facility and the rest, we will say, is history.

The Willys pickup was phased out in the 1960s and replaced by the full-size Gladiator, which claimed numerous “J” designations and enjoyed a 26-year tenure. The mid-size Comanche, introduced in 1982, ended production in 1994 and the seven-slot brand would be bedless for more than a quarter century. Jeep has since hung a few carrots in front of pickup devotees with their annual batch of concept vehicles. The J12 Scrambler, Nukaiser, and Crew Chief 715 prompted the $64,000 question—when was Jeep going to get back in the pickup game? Enter the ‘20 Wrangler JT Gladiator.
