Top 5 Jeeps of 2020

The Jeep has a long history of being one of the most capable and adaptable off-road platforms. And with the recent update to the JL platform and introduction of the Jeep truck known as the JT Gladiator; Jeep has further cemented their position in the off-road world.

There were tons of top notch Jeeps featured this past year to pick from…so we looked to mix things up a bit and include some built-up classics as well as the latest trends. The first criteria, like with any self-respecting Jeep, was a stout suspension setup able to hit the trails and navigate tough terrain. From there, the road armor, accessories, and performance came into play for the best overall package.
