There are no two better midsize pickup trucks available to take on the streets of Burnet, Marble Falls, and Lampasas, TX, than the Jeep Gladiator and the Ford Ranger. Before deciding which one you want as your automotive companion, it’s a great idea to research both trucks so you can make an informed decision.
At Cecil Atkission Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, our team has set out to provide all the information you’ll need regarding the Gladiator and the Ranger in this comparison!
Under the hood of every good pickup truck is a high-strength engine, providing the power and the zip needed to complete your daily tasks.
Starting with the Ford Ranger, you’ll have a standard 2.3L EcoBoost® engine that provides 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. This versatile truck can tow up to 7,500 pounds when properly equipped.
On the other hand, the Jeep Gladiator offers different powertrain options with varying degrees of brute force. First up is a 3.6L PentaStar® V6 engine that puts out 285 horsepower, which is more than the engine in the Ford can provide. It can also tow a maximum of 7,650 pounds when properly equipped. For a best-in-class 442 lb-ft of torque, the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine is at your service.
As you can see, both trucks are equipped with lots of power. However, to get the most out of your ride, you’ll want to go with the Jeep Gladiator.
If you’re the type of driver who likes to have many trim levels to choose from, you’re going to enjoy what the Jeep Gladiator and the Ford Ranger offer.
While each model has multiple trims, the Jeep far outpaces the Ford in this respect, as it has nine trims to the three in the Ford.
Since the Jeep has more than a few extra trim levels to choose from, you’ll want to make sure you look through them all to see which features they have, which will help when you make your decision!
No ride is complete without your favorite music and podcasts blaring through high-quality speakers! The Jeep and the Ford are equipped with many standard infotainment technologies, such as Bluetooth® and wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, to keep the party going.
However, there are two features that set the Jeep apart from the Ford, the first being a fully customizable available 8.4-inch infotainment screen. The Ford only comes with an available 8-inch infotainment screen. While that may not seem like much of a gap, the screen in the Jeep will make visibility easier.
The Jeep also lets you take your tunes with you with an available industry-exclusive wireless Bluetooth® speaker! Not only can you take it anywhere, but you also won’t have to worry about charging it since the Gladiator does it automatically while you drive. It can also stay in up to three feet of water for about 30 minutes.
Unfortunately for Ford Ranger drivers, they won’t have the convenience of being able to take their audio with them anywhere they choose.
Now that you know a bit more about the power, the trim level options, and the technology the Jeep Gladiator and the Ford Ranger provide, are you ready to choose your next automotive companion? If you were to ask the team at Cecil Atkission Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we’d say drivers in Burnet, Marble Falls, and Lampasas, TX, will prefer the Jeep Gladiator.
