If you are currently out looking for a midsize truck, then the experts at Galt Chrysler Jeep Dodge can help you out by comparing two popular options on the market, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator and the 2019 Ford Ranger. Both are capable and comfortable, but there are some differences that might help you make your decision.
Jeep is known for its rugged 4 x 4 capabilities. Standard on every 2020 Gladiator is Jeep's 4x4 capabilities, which include Jeep's iconic Trail-Rated badge, heavy duty Dana front and rear axles, and 17 inch Tech Silver aluminum wheels. On the 2019 Ranger, you get Ford's 4x4 capabilities with the option of adding the electronic-locking rear differential and the terrain management system, as well as standard 16-inch silver steel wheels.
And if you think all midsize pickups are the same, the Gladiator offers something completely unique. This truck holds the honor of being the only pickup truck in North America where you can remove the hardtop roof, fold down the windshield, remove all four doors and experience the wind in your hair and sun on your back. With plenty of summer weather yet to come, every journey can become a favoured memory.
The Jeep Gladiator provides best-In-class towing capabilities, with a capability of hauling 3,470 kg or 7,650 lb - enough for your camper, boat or trailer. The Ford Ranger comes just under the Gladiator's towing capabilities with the ability to haul 3,402 kg or 7,500-lb.
The Jeep truck comes with 3.6L Pentastar V6 with ESS technology and six speed manual transmission, or choose the eight-speed automatic transmission. On the Ford Ranger you'll get the 2.3L I-4 Ecoboost engine. The Jeep Gladiator also offers a little more power than the Ford Ranger, with 285 hp compared to Ford's 270 horsepower.
Inside the 2020 Jeep Gladiator you'll be surrounded by high quality finishes and technology such as the standard 5-inch touchscreen, Uconnect 3 multimedia centre and eight speakers, 12 volt auxiliary power outlet, air conditioning and a push button start and the Ford Ranger offers a 2.3-inch screen, six speakers with single zone manual air conditioning.
