All the Pickup Truck News: Gladiator Rubicon Vs. Colorado ZR2 Bison, Gladiator Goodies, Ram Recall

The Jeep Gladiator is still the darling of the pickup truck news cycle, and we have more great stuff to help manage your insatiable hunger this week. First, we took a Gladiator Rubicon to the Badlands Off Road Park in Attica, Ind., to face off against a Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison in an off-road-focused head-to-head. Then we got behind the wheel of another Gladiator that had more than $10,000 in Mopar accessories. Wrapping up the news this week was a recall alert that covers just over two-dozen 2019 Ram 1500 pickups (sure, we probably could’ve just written a personal letter to each of the affected owners, but we didn’t have their mailing addresses).

Rubicon Versus Bison: Who Ya Got?!

When you want to go play in the rocks and mud and sand, and you have to choose between a Jeep Gladiator Rubicon and a Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, it’s hard to make a choice — and it’s even harder to make a bad choice. When we took it upon ourselves to take these two trucks to an off-road park to see which we preferred, everyone came out a winner.

$10,000 in Accessories

If you do end up picking a 2020 Jeep Gladiator as your next vehicle, know that there are so many different ways you can customize the truck right from the dealership. That wealth of options may require some personal wealth, too, as this particular example has five figures’ worth of Mopar flair.

Ram 1500 Recall

Approximately 30 model-year 2019 Ram 1500 trucks were provided with a spare tire that may not be the same size or require the same tire pressure as recommended on the label in the door jamb. While Ram began notifying affected owners on June 27, if you own a 2019 Ram 1500, you can check out the information within to see if your truck is among those precious few in need of service.
