FRANKFORT — The Kentucky State Police are featuring the rugged Jeep Gladiator Rubicon to support their fundraising efforts for Trooper Island Camp. The agency is selling raffle tickets for a chance to win this multipurpose vehicle recently named “2020 Pickup of the Year.”

Engineered from the ground up to be the most off-road capable midsize truck ever, it builds on a rich heritage of tough, dependable Jeep trucks with an unmatched combination of rugged utility, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, and 4×4 payload. Equipped with the proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and a versatile cargo box, the Gladiator is built to handle the demands of an active lifestyle with a design that is unmistakably Jeep.
