2020 Jeep Wrangler vs 2020 Jeep Gladiator

Serving Gillette, WY

For drivers searching for a vehicle that delivers superior functionality with iconic style, it may be challenging to beat Jeep models. Specifically, the Jeep Wrangler shows off almost four decades of evolution while still maintaining its boxy profile and exciting capabilities. The Jeep Gladiator is a pickup truck that has many brand-specific design elements and the full functionality of a powerful midsize truck. This truck is a revival of Jeep's last truck model, which was discontinued in 1988. As you explore the exciting possibilities of a Jeep, an in-depth review of the Wrangler and the Gladiator is in order.

Performance

The Wrangler and the Gladiator carry Jeep's trail-rated badging. This means that they are both designed to excel in maneuverability, articulation, water fording, ground clearance, and traction. In the 2020 Wrangler, you will find five powertrain possibilities, and only one of these engines is offered in the Gladiator. The shared engine is a V6, 3.6-liter Pentastar gas engine with auto start-stop tech, and it produces 285 horsepower. This is the most powerful engine available in the Wrangler. In addition to three other gas-powered engines available in the Wrangler, the SUV is also available with a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine that generates 260 horsepower.

Appearance

The 2020 Gladiator and the 2020 Wrangler are related from an exterior vantage point. They both have Jeep-specific styling through their bar-themed grilles, their rounded headlights, their boxy stance, and their flared fenders. They are also both available with several removable top styles, removable doors, and a fold-down front windshield. The specific top styles vary by model. Wheel designs and sizes are also comparable for these two models. At the rear of the Gladiator, however, you will find a large truck bed with a rugged steel box, a tonneau cover, and a weatherproof power outlet.

Features

The interior designs and features are also notably comparable in most ways. These Jeep models share a dashboard design with round air vents, a squared-off port for the touch display screen, and a full range of vertically mounted vehicle controls placed at the bottom of the center stack. In both vehicles across the trim line, you can find features like an Alpine sound system, UConnect, Apple CarPlay, heated seats, an automatic climate control system, powered front seat adjustments, a rear camera, remote vehicle access, power windows, keyless entry, Android Auto, a navigation system and many other coveted features.

While the 2020 Jeep Gladiator and the 2020 Jeep Wrangler are comparable in many ways, these vehicles vary significantly on a trim-by-trim basis.
