Jeep Gladiator vs. Wrangler

View Jeep Inventory

The Jeep Wrangler is one of the coolest SUVs on the road, and has been for years. But now Jeep is welcoming a new vehicle to the family, and it’s sure to capture eyes and imaginations the same way the Wrangler always has.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is coming soon, bringing Jeep looks and capabilities to the mid-size pickup truck segment for the first time. This capable new beast has a lot in common with the Wrangler--and some key differences.

Powertrain Partners

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator will come standard with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which produces 285 horsepower. That same engine is found on many Jeep Wrangler models, though the Gladiator will only offer that engine whereas Wrangler shoppers have a few more options, including a turbocharged 4-cylinder. Like the Wrangler, the Gladiator will come standard with 4-wheel drive.

Similar Trim Levels

Both the Wrangler and Gladiator offer a diverse array of trim levels, starting with Sport and Sport S. The Gladiator Sport’s starting MSRP is only about $2,000 higher than that of the Wrangler Sport 4-door (the Gladiator will only be available as a 4-door). The higher-end Wrangler Sahara is matched by the Gladiator Overland, while both vehicles feature a Rubicon edition.

Is the Jeep Gladiator a Pickup Truck?

The most obvious difference between the Gladiator and the Wrangler is that the Gladiator is, of course, a truck. That means it’s longer to accommodate the pickup bed, and it offers some impressive towing capabilities: Up to 7,650 pounds.
