2020 Jeep Gladiator vs. Jeep Wrangler: See The Differences


Same Heritage. All-New Look

Those who live for off-road adventures only trust vehicles with a Trail Rated® Badge, and a new vehicle has joined this exclusive club for the 2020 model year — the Jeep Gladiator. This distinction means that a vehicle has been put through a series of grueling tests that prove its off- road capability and durability.

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler SUV has also earned this badge, and it was the primary inspiration for the design of the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck. While the vehicles share similar styling cues, they have significant differences. Below, we’ve outlined the key comparisons between the vehicles. Once you’ve learned everything there is to know about these models, come down to Spitzer Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Homestead to take a test drive.

Jeep Powertrain Options

Underneath the hood of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator lies a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, which generates 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler offers the same standard engine, but it also has an available 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine with an eTorque mild hybrid system, which delivers 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.

Drivers who want to get the best fuel economy out of their vehicle should look into the Jeep Wrangler. While the 2020 Jeep Gladiator gets a respectable EPA-estimated 16/23 city/highway MPG, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler’s V6 engine does it one better, achieving an EPA-estimated 17/25 city/highway MPG. The Jeep Wrangler’s available 4-cylinder engine is even more fuel efficient, getting an EPA-estimated 23/25 city/highway MPG.

A Pair Of Highly Capable Vehicles

When trying to decide which vehicle is right for you, it’s best to consider what you’ll be using it for. If you plan on towing or carrying heavy loads, you may want to lean toward the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. This midsize pickup truck has a best-in-class max payload of 1,600 pounds and a best-in- class max towing capacity of 7,650 pounds when properly equipped.

Meanwhile, the Jeep Wrangler offers pretty good capability numbers for an SUV. Both of its engines can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Open Cargo Bed vs. Closed Cargo Area

Drivers who need extra versatility will love the 5-foot, all-steel bed on the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. This midsize truck can carry nearly anything you’ll need to haul, and its bed can even secure your cargo during bumpy off-road adventures with its Trail Rail™ Cargo Management System.

On the other hand, the Jeep Wrangler gets up to 31.7 cubic feet of cargo space with its rear seats folded down, and it offers convenient hidden storage areas for added versatility. If you don’t plan on hauling around anything too large, then the 2019 Wrangler may just be perfect for you.
