Jeep Gladiator vs. Ford Ranger

Compare the Jeep® Gladiator to the Ford Ranger

Looking for a truck that can handle your heavy lifting without balking at rough terrain? The Jeep® Gladiator is uniquely capable when it comes to tackling your towing and hauling needs. The Gladiator is closely related to the Jeep® Wrangler, offering a distinctive look and incredible off-road prowess to match. So, how does the Gladiator fare in the ring when rivals like the Ford Ranger step up to challenge it? Well, if you're in the market for a truck that won't back down from your most demanding adventures, you'll find that the Gladiator sets the bar.

Exterior Features

The Jeep Gladiator is unmistakable, thanks to its signature seven-slot grille, round headlights, and trapezoidal wheel arches. The Gladiator stands out in a way that the Ford Ranger can't match. Plus, the Gladiator is the only open-air pickup truck in the automotive industry, so it offers a unique adventuring experience that the Ford Ranger can't touch.

Interior Features

The Gladiator comes with seating for up to five, but you'll need to make sure that you get the SuperCrew cab on the Ranger to get that number. Otherwise, the Ranger comes with room for four passengers. When you compare the Gladiator to five-passenger Ranger models, you'll find that the Gladiator offers superior headroom, hip room, and legroom in the second row, making the Gladiator ideal for bringing your friends and family along for the ride.


Though the Gladiator doesn't offer as much towing power as the Ranger, it offers greater off-road capability. The Gladiator is the first-ever truck to earn the Trail Rated badge, which speaks to its superior 4x4 off-road prowess. So, if you're looking for a truck that can help you bring more of your gear along for the ride without having to worry about maneuvering along the toughest trails, the Gladiator is the one to beat.

Tech and Safety

The Gladiator offers the Uconnect® 4C NAV system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen. The Uconnect infotainment system is widely hailed as a user-friendly system that outshines the likes of the SYNC 3 system with a host of intuitive connectivity features. Both models also offer a variety of driver-assist and towing-assist technologies to make your drive easier and safer.
