2021 Jeep Wrangler vs 2021 Jeep Gladiator

Serving Gillette, WY

At first glance, the Jeep Gladiator and the Jeep Wrangler are mostly identical except for the Gladiator’s truck bed at the rear. However, from their dimensions and features to their price range and more, the Gladiator and the Wrangler stand apart in significant ways. Our White’s Energy Motors reps want to help you understand their many differences in detail so that you can make your Jeep selection confidently.


The primary engine for both of these models is a V6, 3.6-liter powertrain tied to a manual transmission with overdrive functionality. In both models, this engine produces 285 horsepower. However, the Gladiator has a maximum towing capacity of 4,000 pounds, and the Wrangler tops out at 2,000 pounds. Both of these Jeep models have four-wheel drive, power steering, and a host of other well-designed mechanical features.


The Wrangler can accommodate four passengers, and this is compared to the five-passenger capacity of the Gladiator. Both models have seemingly similar designs for the bar-style grille, round headlamps, molded bumpers, boxy shape, and protruding squared-off fenders yet. However, the Gladiator is a taller and longer vehicle with a larger wheelbase. The doors and windows for both models can be removed. The Wrangler is available with a variety of hard and soft roof styles.


Throughout the extensive trim lines, the Gladiator and the Wrangler are well-appointed with modern technologies and premium features. However, they also both have a functional interior design that is ideal for adventure-driven trips. Some of their shared features at select or all trims are auto climate control, USB ports, an infotainment system, a sound system, powered front seats, and more.
