Jeep® Gladiator, Ram 1500 Named to Autotrader’s 10 Best Car Interiors Under $50,000

  • Jeep® Gladiator earns a spot on Autotrader’s 10 Best Car Interiors list in its first year of availability
  • Ram 1500 makes an appearance on Autotrader’s 10 Best Car Interiors list for the third time in three years
  • Autotrader picks 10 new vehicles every year to help car buyers focus their attention on what best suits their needs, starting with the interior



February 19, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The Jeep® Gladiator and Ram 1500 have been named to Autotrader’s 10 Best Car Interiors Under $50,000 for 2020 list.

Every year, Autotrader’s editors thoughtfully review the latest models for their 10 Best Car Interiors Under $50,000. For 2020, the Jeep Gladiator makes the list in its first year of availability while the Ram 1500 also joins, making the list for the third time in three years (2018, 2019, 2020). Gladiator and 1500 are the only pickup trucks to earn a spot on this coveted list.


“The Jeep Gladiator’s interior is perfectly in line with the overall ruggedness of the Gladiator pickup. We picked the Gladiator, not because of any inherent luxury, but because it somehow manages to be stylish, functional and comfortable without being garish or soft,” said Brian Moody, Executive Editor of Autotrader. ”Like the Gladiator itself, this Jeep’s interior is purpose-driven and is the perfect assistant to whatever task is at hand – it looks cool and effectively mimics the tough, functional exterior while remaining authentic to all we expect from Jeep.”

Editors rate interiors on comfort, quality of materials and logic of use to help consumers find the top vehicle choices that recognize the importance of quality interior design.

“For the third year in a row, the Ram 1500 is on our ‘Best Interiors’ list. The reason is simple, Ram has consistently gone the extra mile in setting their truck apart from the crowd with compelling textures, interesting patterns and rich, contemporary colors. Of all the full-size pickups available, the Ram 1500 has the best looking, highest quality interior,” said Moody. “Anyone who spends most of their day driving a pickup will appreciate the Ram’s soft-touch materials, thoughtful features and sturdy storage options. Eclipsing even some luxury cars, the Ram’s cab an excellent place to spend time either on the road or a night on the town. The 2020 Ram 1500’s interior scored an incredible 4.7 out of 5 in our editor’s evaluation. Something almost unheard of in any vehicle.”

Editors found Gladiator treated buyers to high-end materials in the form of a soft-touch dashboard, rubberized controls and aluminum accents. Leather seats, great storage solutions and USB connectivity also earned Gladiator praise. Autotrader’s editors claimed that Ram Truck now offers the nicest interiors in the half-ton pickup truck segment. Materials quality, touchpoints and ergonomics are all top-notch in Ram’s lineup, according to Autotrader.
