The Fast Lane Truck (TFLtruck) Names 2020 Jeep® Gladiator, 2020 Ram Power Wagon Winners of Gold Winch Award

  • 2020 Jeep® Gladiator Rubicon wins Gold Winch award for Best Mid-size Off-Road truck in its first attempt
  • 2020 Ram Power Wagon takes home Gold Winch award for Best Heavy Duty Off-Road truck
  • FCA is home to the most off-road-capable pickup trucks in the industry
April 16, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -  The Fast Lane Truck (TFLtruck) has named two FCA vehicles as winners of the 2020 Gold Winch awards.

The 2020 Jeep® Gladiator has earned the Gold Winch award as the Best Mid-size Off-Road truck of the year. The 2020 Ram Power Wagon has earned the Gold Winch award as the Best Heavy Duty Off-Road truck of the year.

"The competition was very tough this year. In the end, the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon stood above the rest based on its raw off-road capability and the fun aspect of top-down doors-off adventure driving. The final decision was unanimous,” said Andre Smirnov, managing editor at” The Ram Power Wagon won the 2020 Gold Winch award due to its laser focus on off-road capability and equipment. It still has the best suspension flex, many trim options and an included winch to boot.”

For Gold Winch evaluations, TFLtruck’s editors tested vehicles on grueling paths in Colorado, reaching high elevations with terrain that varies from loose gravel to rocks and snow. Jeep Gladiator Rubicon’s overall performance on-road combined with its legendary capability and open-air freedom unanimously won judges over.

Judges noted the Ram Power Wagon’s off-road capability and equipment, such as the unique suspension, 2-inch factory lift, locking front and rear differentials, disconnecting front sway bar and a 12,000 lb. winch, put it over the top of its respective category. After all votes were counted, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon and 2020 Ram Power Wagon were determined to be the winners of each respective segment.

Gold Winch award-eligible trucks include 2020 model-year pickups (or trucks from previous model years that have not significantly changed for 2020). Trucks are only eligible for the award if they were tested before March 1, 2020.
