Comparing the Jeep Gladiator vs. the Toyota Tacoma at Scap Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Fairfield

Here at Scap Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we hope you take the time to visit our dealership and take on the brand-new Jeep Gladiator. An immense presence of power, unique exterior styling, and fabled Jeep brand capability, you'll be mesmerized by what's at stake when a Jeep Gladiator comes to the table.

A frequent comparison for those who are looking for a similarly powerful truck with off-road ability is the Toyota Tacoma. A fine truck by every metric; however, we believe the Toyota Tacoma doesn't quite have what the Jeep Gladiator is capable of in terms of capability and function. It's easy to see why the Jeep Gladiator is the preferred ride and not just by looks, which is a no-brainer to see on the world's first open-air pickup truck.

The Jeep Gladiator vs. Toyota Tacoma: Off-Road Capability

The Toyota Tacoma can traverse terrain with several features that assist in conquering the rough roads. Available Bilstein® Shocks deliver constant performance, while Multi-Terrain Select offers five modes to choose from for optimal performance when you need it. Other prominent features include an electronically locking rear differential which helps with power distribution. In the Tacoma TRD trim, Off-Road's Crawl modulates the brakes and throttle on five low-speed settings.

While the Toyota Tacoma presents great off-road features, the Jeep Gladiator doesn't bow down in any respect. Every Jeep Gladiator offers standard heavy-duty Dana® 44 axles, skid plates, as well as tow hooks. Considering every 2020 Jeep Gladiator proudly displays the Trail Rated® badge, you know excelling in ground clearance, articulation, maneuverability, water fording, and traction is incredibly easy.

In the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon trim - the most potent off-road Jeep Gladiator model, other prominent features include a locking front and rear differential, Rock-Trac® 4:1 transfer case, electronic disconnecting sway bar, rock rails, and fox shocks that make a bold impression.

The Jeep Gladiator vs. the Toyota Tacoma: Performance

The Jeep Gladiator outpaces the Toyota Tacoma with a proud 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine, that delivers 7,650-pound towing capacity, 23 highway mpg, 260 pound-feet of torque, and 285 horsepower.

The Toyota Tacoma isn't quite the powerful performer the Jeep Gladiator is, with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that tows up to 6,800 pounds. The best engine option in the Toyota Tacoma is the 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 278 horsepower.
