2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Plenty of Fun, Even without a Desert

2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Plenty of Fun, Even without a Desert
When the Jeep Gladiator came out last year, it marked the first time Jeep had made a pickup truck in decades. Until now, the most capable version you could buy has been the Rubicon. That’s still the case if you’re planning on crawling slowly over rocks and steep grades, but if you’re looking for a Gladiator that can tackle sand dunes, undulating hills, and dirt roads as fast as possible, the Mojave is the better choice, and overall, I think it’s the best Gladiator model you can buy at the moment. I’ll start out by saying that I didn’t actually drive the Gladiator Mojave in the desert, since options for that are pretty limited here in the Chicago area, and my usual off-road trails in the state were closed due to COVID-19.

2020 Ram Rebel 1500 EcoDiesel Review

2020 Ram Rebel 1500 EcoDiesel Review
The word “rebel” has some deep-rooted placements in automotive history as well as film (RIP James Dean). And, if I do say so, it’s an awesome name for a trim of a vehicle that does its own thing and really sticks out with personality and excitement.

Ford Falcon Transformed into a Library Tank
This is definitely one of the stranger custom vehicles I’ve seen in a while, but it’s actually pretty cool. To celebrate World Book Day a few years back, the guys at 7UP Argentina enlisted the help of an artist to create a custom car that doubles as a free library on wheels. While artist Raul Lemesoff could have just built any old book wagon, he went the extra mile, and converted an old 1979 Ford Falcon into what he call his Weapon of Mass Instruction.
