Compare the Jeep Wrangler vs. Jeep Gladiator

Two Jeeps. One Decision.

At Lifted Trucks, we encourage a thorough comparison to the timeless Wrangler and the new Gladiator, two capable Jeep vehicles that share much in common, but also have distinct differences. Let's highlight the exciting design and features of these models to help you determine what's right for your lifestyle. We welcome Phoenix, Mesa, Tucson, Paradise Valley, Glendale, Scottsdale & McKinney TX area residents and others to browse our comprehensive selection and inquire online or give us a call with any questions.

Iconic Wrangler Looks

There's no doubt the latest generation of Jeep Wrangler, commonly referred to as the JL, is the most advanced Wrangler ever. And while it shows off an evolutionary exterior and interior design compared to that of its predecessor, the JK, the JL retains that instantly recognizable look the Wrangler is known for.

With its legendary off-road prowess, including aggressive approach, departure and brakeover angles, water fording capabilities and infinite customization possibilities, the Wrangler is a great choice for those desiring an SUV built for off-road adventures throughout Arizona and beyond.

Classic & New Features

It wouldn't be a Wrangler if you couldn't take off the doors, roof for the ultimate open air driving experience. You can even fold down the windshield for those low-speed crawling moments.

New for the JL generation is an improved cabin, including the latest UConnect infotainment system, optional navigation and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Being behind the wheel of a Wrangler while staying connected to the world has never been easier.

A Jeep That Really Tows

Some may think the all-new Jeep Gladiator is simply a Wrangler with a 5-foot cargo bed. And while you'd be correct in saying the Gladiator and Wrangler share nearly identical design and parts, there are differences in suspension setup and towing capacity.

The two-door Wrangler musters a 2,000 pound maximum towing capacity, while four-door Unlimited models max out at 3,500 pounds. The mid-size Gladiator is capable of hauling a best-in-class 7,650 pounds worth of stuff, making it the more ideal Jeep buy for drivers looking to tow their toys to their next adventure.

True Off-Road Chops

Of course, the all-new Jeep Gladiator doesn't slouch in the off-road department either, especially in Rubicon form, with its front and rear locking differentials, branded FOX shocks and optional forward-facing camera.

The Gladiator also features 10 inches of ground clearance on Sport and Overland trims, and 11 inches on Rubicon (from the factory). This will give you the confidence to handle the tough terrain with ease. If you're interested in adding more ground clearance, be sure to contact our friends in The Lift Shop.
