Battle of the Trucks! 2019 RAM and 2020 Jeep Gladiator

Last week was simply gorgeous!  Clear blue skies, warm sunshine, and plants are standing proudly in full bloom.  It was a great time to get out and soak up some vitamin D.

Also last week, my auto group held their monthly meetup outdoors, and my fellow auto enthusiasts gathered together at Chastain Horse Park in the heart of Buckhead to learn, dine, and test drive the new 2019 RAM trucks and 2020 Jeep Gladiators.

When it comes to trucks, I'm not much of a fan of them since I don't haul around anything, unless you count my kids.  😅  But seriously, trucks are made to pull those big boy toys, like boats, trailers, motorbikes, furniture, and other massive objects.  The only time I needed a truck was when I was a renter moving every two years.  Now that I'm a homeowner, I'm not towing around my big household items to another rental property.

Now, I can see Mr. M driving around in a truck since his business requires him to make deliveries, but he is content with driving cargo vans for more space and privacy.

Another reason I'm not a fan of trucks because the heavy duty ones intimidate me.  Heavy Duty trucks are so big, wide, and long; it makes me feel like I may hit something and may not be able to maneuver it.

Plus, trucks don't fit my style.

I know, like my old fear of big SUV's, I need to give trucks a chance too.  I never know, I may end up enjoying driving them as well.

As for Jeep, they are so much fun to drive!  It's like when I had a Barbie jeep and had all my dolls riding in it with the top down, now with me as an adult I'm living out my childhood days driving the real thing!

I mainly have driven the Jeep Grand Cherokee when we would rent them for our family trips; as for Jeep Wranglers, I only been in those once while vacationing in St. Croix.

Remember that trip, when my family and I did off-road driving?  We had the top off of the Jeep, girls sat high up in the back seat, the warm breezes blew through the vehicle with the sweet smell of the salty ocean, and our tour guide drove us up to the rough rocky mountains to see panoramic views of the whole island, and to the tide pools.  That right there was the most unforgettable, thrilling experience ever!  No wonder Michelle want her first car to be a Jeep.

Here more information about both what's new going on with both RAM and Jeep.

The Ram Heavy Duty pickup is the first to break the 1,000 ft.-lb. barrier and tow more than 35,000 lbs. But comfort does not take a back seat to capability in new Ram Heavy Duty pickups. Ram has improved the towing and hauling experience by focusing on confidence-inspiring features and class-exclusive vehicle safety, while adding many features from the award-winning 2019 Ram 1500, setting the benchmark for strength, technology and luxury.

 I had my eye on the 2020 Jeep Gladiator!  Now that's a truck that I can handle.  The Jeep Gladiator is a mixture of SUV, Wrangler, and pickup truck creating a vehicle that will please a lot of consumers.  It's right up my alley to start introducing me to driving trucks.

I got a chance to test drive the Jeep Gladiator, and it's an exhilarating vehicle.  It operates like a sedan and also has its moments when it drives rugged too, so it's the best of both worlds.  I hope I'll have a longer chance to test drive it, and take it up north to the Smoky Mountains.
