Jeep Gladiator vs Ford Ranger

There are a lot of things to consider when deciding which truck you should get. With varying towing capacities, cabin space, and other features, the Jeep Gladiator and Ford Ranger offer different benefits depending on the type of driving and activities you like to do around Savannah, Hardeeville, and Pooler.

While both are worthy options, our Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram North Savannah team took a closer look at the Jeep Gladiator vs. Ford Ranger to see which truck has the performance and features you personally are looking to have.

Ready to Tow All of Your Equipment  

The 2020 Gladiator and 2020 Ranger are both trucks that can be equipped to handle all the different types of driving you enjoy. Ride around town with smooth, easy-handling performance, tow your trailer, load up the bed with tools or gear, and even drive over any terrain with either truck.

The difference between the Jeep Gladiator vs. Ford Ranger, though, is how well they perform in certain situations. When it comes to towing, the extra strength of the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine in the Gladiator lets you tow an additional 150 pounds.

This difference in towing capacity may be just the extra strength you need to safely pull your boat or other equipment you use during your workday.

Take a Ride on the Wild Side

On top of towing a lot of weight, the 2020 Gladiator is also ready to take on any terrain. Both trucks have systems that can help you drive through mud, gravel, and sand with great control. Wherever you go, you will have great traction in either truck.

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator offers better protection from obstacles when off-roading, though, with a ground clearance that reaches 11.1 inches and the available TrailCam Off-Road Camera. This forward-facing camera helps you see what lies ahead on your path, so you have plenty of time to safely steer around logs or bigger rocks. The 2020 Ford Ranger doesn’t offer this same technology and only has a ground clearance of up to 8.9 inches.

Inside the Cabins of the 2020 Gladiator vs 2020 Ranger

Each truck offers a comfortable ride for up to five passengers. The difference, however, will be how much room your rear passengers will have.

Taller passengers enjoy a more comfortable time sitting in the back of the Jeep Gladiator since it has 38.3 inches of rear legroom. The Ford Ranger has only up to 34.5 inches of rear legroom, which is fine for children but a little crammed for adults.

There are also features in both trucks that you and your passengers will have to make your ride even more enjoyable.
