Jeep Gladiator vs. Ford Ranger

The Jeep Gladiator vs. The Ford Ranger: Which Truck is Best For You?

Have you considered a new truck upgrade because you're tired of your old sedan or SUV? If you're looking for a vehicle that holds solid towing capability, quality comfort for friends and family, and robust performance designed to take on the busy roads and highways as well as the terrains of La Porte, the Jeep Gladiator is a standout new truck candidate for 2020. Truck seekers who are ready for expressive looks and the ultimate versatility in a new truck will find it all and more inside the Jeep Gladiator. But how does this newly released Jeep pickup truck compare to a model like the Ford Ranger?

See below why drivers are choosing the Jeep Gladiator over the Ford Ranger in a side-by-side comparison of these two brand new truck throwbacks!

Jeep Gladiator Power and Performance

if you're after a midsize pickup truck that offers strength and capability, the Ford Ranger doesn't even compare to the new Jeep Gladiator. Look to a standard 285-horsepower 3.6-Liter Pentastar 3.6-Liter V6 engine and standard 4x4 capability across all Jeep Gladiator trims which is a larger range of choices when compared to the new Ford Ranger's three trim options.

Also, the Jeep Gladiator is capable of towing trailers weighing up to 7,650-lbs which is ideal for hauling the family camper or boat on the weekends. Plus, pack in your camp gear or work supplies with a payload capacity of 1,600-lbs!

The Ford Ranger offers peppy performance, but not exactly the power you need for a midsize truck at a standard trim level. The base trim for the Ford Ranger trim compared to the Gladiator base trim is a no brainer for truck buyers looking to drive home with their money's worth.

The Ford Ranger does not come with standard 4x4 and holds 270-horsepower in the 2.3-Liter EcoBoost® engine. Towing for the Ranger is rated at 7,500-lbs, and though it holds more payload capacity, the Ford Ranger does not offer the versatility and convenience of the Jeep Gladiator's easy-to-lower, three-position tailgate and the available roll-up tonneau cover that makes for organized cargo options!

Jeep Gladiator Interior Technology

The Interior of the Jeep Gladiator is massive and more comfortable than ever with options for unique cloth and luxuriant leather interior trims. The Ford Ranger offers decent comfort options in it's highest trim level the Lariat, but the two trims below offer mediocre interior features. Jeep drivers will have more of a sporty and luxury feel behind the wheel of the Gladiator while holding powerful capability.

Technology on the roads of La Porte is essential and if you want to be a step ahead of the rest of drivers, the Jeep Gladiator's available 8.4-inch touchscreen with the Uconnect® 4C NAV is ideal for the everyday traveler. Link up with your smartphone through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and find your next route easier than ever with turn by turn directions.

The Ford Ranger offers the SYNC®3 interface which appears to be less innovative and borderline outdated in comparison to Jeep's unique Uconnect systems.
