Serving Commerce, GA

Today's Jeep line is filled with rugged, advanced vehicles that are just as well-suited for urban driving as they are for your exciting adventures. If you have narrowed down your search to the Wrangler and Gladiator, you may appreciate their common exterior style elements. While they have a few similarities, the Wrangler and Gladiator have significant differences that you need to be aware of before buying your next vehicle. This begins with their history. The Jeep Wrangler is a utility vehicle that has more than 30 years of uninterrupted history on the road. The Gladiator is a pickup truck that was released in 2019, and it is named after the original Gladiator truck that was available for 26 years until it was discontinued in 1988. Our sales associates at Banks Crossing CDJR are available to help you compare these two models and their trims in full detail.


You will not be disappointed with the capabilities of either of these impressive models. They both meet Jeep's high standards for its Trail-Rated badge. These standards are in the areas of ground clearance, water fording, traction, articulation, and maneuverability. They have exceptional off-road capabilities and are both available with four-wheel drive. If you decide to drive the Wrangler, you can choose between five powertrain possibilities. The single diesel engine is a 260-horsepower, 3.0-liter EcoDiesel powertrain. The most powerful gas engine available for the Wrangler is a V6 Pentastar, 3.6-liter engine that generates 285 horsepower. This same powertrain is the only engine available for the 2020 Gladiator.


Visually, the Gladiator and Wrangler share some of their most recognizable exterior features. They both have a boxy profile, square tail lamps, round headlights, vertical bars running across the grille, removable doors, and several removable roof options. The Wrangler's roof options include a Sunrider soft top, a single-touch Power Top, and a few others. This crossover SUV has a few unique design elements as well, such as a removable windshield and flared, edgy wheel fenders. The Gladiator has a full truck bed in the rear, wider wheel fenders, and several unique roof styles.


Throughout the interior, the Wrangler and the Gladiator are clearly related. They have a tall, vertical dashboard and can accommodate five passengers. The center console and center stack designs are similar, and they carry USB ports, cupholders, two gear shifting knobs, a touch display screen, sound system controls, and other equipment. In some or all of their trims, they also could have leather seating, heated seats in the first row, remote access, a heated steering wheel, and other items. These vehicles also have a few unique features. For example, in the Wrangler, you will find removable carpet, several functional or storage features for the back of the vehicle, and more. The Gladiator, on the other, could be equipped with a removable Bluetooth speaker, concealed storage areas inside the cabin, and more.
