There's a good reason you're considering a Jeep for your commutes around the Lewisburg, Sunbury, and Danville, PA, areas, and that's because they have a reputation for delivering advanced performance, safety, and technology features. Two models you may be considering are the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Gladiator. The question is, which one is going to be the right choice for you?

Here at B.Z. Motors Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT, we're dedicated to helping you every step of the way through your car-buying journey, and we know that starts right here with the research process. To make it as simple as possible for you, we created this handy breakdown of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2021 Jeep Gladiator. Now, let's see how these two stack up against one another!

Exterior Build and Design

The main difference between these two vehicles is pretty obvious: the Wrangler is a highly capable off-roading SUV, while the Gladiator is a pickup truck that's able to easily haul large loads. While this is a major difference, the exterior builds share more features than you might think.

The Gladiator is essentially a Wrangler with an added truck bed. Both vehicles provide you with the ability to remove the roof and doors, so you can feel the wind in your hair and the breeze on your skin during those sunny and warm summer drives.

With the Wrangler, though, you'll have six different roof options to choose from:

  • Sky One-Touch® Power Top
  • Zipperless Sunrider® soft top
  • Premium Black Sunrider® soft top
  • Premium Tan Sunrider® soft top
  • Black Freedom Top® Three-Piece hardtop
  • Body-Color Three-Piece hardtop

The Gladiator only offers three different roofing options: the Body-Color hardtop, the Zipperless Sunrider® soft top, and the Black Freedom Top® hardtop.

Engine Options and Performance Features

Now, we'll head under the hood and take a look at what powers these vehicles.

With the Wrangler, you'll have four different engine options to choose from:

  • 2.0L Turbo engine: 270 horsepower / 295 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L EcoDiesel engine: 260 horsepower / 442 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque: 285 horsepower / 260 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with ESS: 285 horsepower / 260 lb-ft of torque

Additionally, the Wrangler has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Over in the Gladiator, there are two engines to choose from. The available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine delivers 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. The standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine puts out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. With all that power, you'll be able to tow up to 7,650 pounds when properly equipped. This means you can easily bring your boat down to the lake or hitch up a trailer for your next move.
