The all-new 2020 Jeep® Gladiator – the most capable midsize truck ever – was named the “Best Off-Road Vehicle” for 2019 by Sobre Ruedas, the leading Spanish-language automotive radio show in the United States.
“The Jeep Gladiator is a midsize truck that truly dominates in both on- and off-road driving while providing a high level of versatility that today’s customers demand,” said Jaime Florez, director and host of Sobre Ruedas. “No other truck of any size offers the unique experience of open-air driving while also having the capability to tackle any obstacle thrown its way, all in a very attractive package.”
The 2019 Sobre Ruedas awards ceremony took place today at the Miami Beach Convention Center as part of the 49th edition of the Miami International Auto Show.
The Sobre Ruedas executive committee was responsible for generating the nominations. A group of automotive industry experts selected the winners of the 12 basic categories, in addition to the top prize, the Sobre Ruedas Vehicle of the Year.
