There are pickup trucks and then there are Rustic Chic pickup trucks. Vintage ones are instantly Rustic Chic, especially when impeccably restored. But a new RC offering is about to hit the fields and streams in the form of the 2012 Jeep Gladiator. Originally produced between 1962 and 1970, the Jeep Gladiator was reintroduced in 2004 as a “concept”. While not actually intended for sale, it was shown as a demonstration of what Jeep was planning on for the future. Well the future is here at last.
According to the specs, the Gladiator will feature an open-air canvas roof, fold-down windshield, removable doors and expandable truck bed. It will come equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission and have a 2.8 liter, 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine. The future has come to Rustic Chic!
