In order to make your research journey as easy as possible, we created this helpful breakdown of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator vs. Ford Ranger. Now, let’s see how these two stack up against one another!
Jeep Gladiator vs Ford Ranger Powertrain Capabilities
When you’re looking for a truck, you’re going to want something with advanced powertrain capabilities, and that includes the ability to haul large loads.
With the 2020 Gladiator you’re going to have a maximum towing capacity of 7,650 pounds. That means you’ll be able to easily tow a boat, trailer, RV, or jet ski. The 2020 Ranger falls a bit short, providing just a 7,500-pound towing capacity.
When it comes to off-roading ability, the Gladiator certainly delivers. The available forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera aids in off-road Navigation by displaying a gridline display of the path ahead, so you can easily maneuver over any obstacle. There is not a similar feature over in the Ranger.
Gladiator vs Ranger Build
The Jeep Gladiator isn’t your typical pickup truck. Depending on the frame you choose, you’ll have the ability to remove the top and doors. Nothing is as freeing as the feeling of sunlight shining through and the cool breeze running through the interior cabin on a warm day.
There are a few different roof options:
- Zipperless Sunrider® Soft Top
- Body-Color Hardtop
- Black Freedom Top® Hardtop
With the available Zipperless Sunrider® Soft Top, you’ll be able to lower the roof with an easy one-handed operation. The available Freedom Top® comes off by just simply popping out the removable lightweight roof panels.
When it comes to the doors, you’ll have the ability to remove them completely. All four Gladiator trim levels come equipped with easy-to-lift aluminum doors.
Over in the 2020 Ranger, you won’t find any of these advanced exterior design features. Instead, it just looks like every other pickup truck on the market, and barely stands out from the crowd. Also, you’ll only have the choice between three different trim levels, as opposed to four with the Gladiator.
The Verdict: 2020 Jeep Gladiator vs Ford Ranger
While both these trucks are a great choice for your commutes around Hamilton, Madison, and Smyrna, NY, it’s clear the Gladiator outperforms the Ranger in crucial categories like performance and design.
