Jeep was able to reintroduce a pickup truck to their lineup with the reported Jeep Gladiator during the Los Angeles Auto Show.

According to USA Today, the sales for the Gladiator will start in 2019.  This was as if the Jeep needed more momentum. Fiat Chrysler has finally revealed the Jeep Gladiator pickup Wednesday at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Jeep is set to settle for owning two slots for now on the list of the hottest-selling vehicles of USA TODAY as of November and this was determined by sales volume, buzz, and momentum:

1. Jeep Cherokee with 20,296, up 22.6 percent on its November sales

This SUV is reportedly the best-seller of the Jeep and Fiat Chrysler's second-best-seller as it only trails a Ram pickup. It continues to benefit from the Jeep's superb year. The brand heightened to over 18.2 percent in the first 11 months and will likely fall just short of 1 million vehicles for all of 2018.

2. Jeep Wrangler with 15,963, up 20.1 percent on its November sales.

The fan base of Wrangler continues to reward the automaker for redesigning the vehicle recently. "The Wrangler has become the most recognizable vehicle in the world," says the North America brand chief of Jeep named Tim Kuniskis during the L.A. Auto Show. The Gladiator is essentially a Wrangler with a pickup bed is now the Wrangler's new baby and the new companion in the showroom.

3. Subaru Forester 16,066, up 9.6 percent with its November sales.

Subaru, on the other hand, has achieved its 84th consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases in November. This is basically seven years of growth. And the Forester was a big reason driving the latest uptick. The SUV was recently redesigned and this was a big help for propelling the vehicle to the title of Subaru's best-seller in November.

4. Hyundai Kona 5,976 with its November sales. (Note: This was not on sale a year earlier)

One may give Hyundai credit especially after falling badly behind the transition of the industry to SUVs and crossovers, the brand is finally catching up. The company actually introduced the Palisade SUV, a 3-row model during the L.A. Auto Show. However, the smaller Kona crossover is, in fact, building a base already. Hyundai sold almost 6,000 of them in their first-ever November in showrooms.

5. Lincoln Navigator 1,566, up 27.3 percent with its November sales.

The redesign of Ford's Navigator reportedly pays big dividends. Customers have been paying an average of $26,000 more for the new version. The Lincoln Black Label Navigator is specifically trending. It is a loaded version of the big SUV.
