Off-road capabilities of the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator

Both of these Jeep models are built from the same off-road-oriented platform, and it shows. Of course you can enjoy insane approach and departure angles making nearly any trail manageable, but both models also enjoy the same standard engine pumping out 285 horsepower and an impressive 260 pound-feet of torque. If you want to opt for the smaller turbo engine, then you will only be able to do so on the Wrangler currently.

No matter which model you choose, from the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited to the Gladiator, you will be able to seat up to five people. However, it is worth noting that the Wrangler is a two-door model whereas both the Wrangler Unlimited and the all-new Gladiator are only available with four doors.

On both of these models, those doors are special because even the Gladiator includes fully removable doors that can be taken off in just a few minutes. To top all that off, all Wrangler and Gladiator models come with standard removable soft tops that can be upgraded to black hardtops or even body-colored hardtops on certain trim levels. Enjoy the trail and the fresh air.

When it comes to price, the Wrangler is still pretty comparable to the Gladiator. Here in Canada, the 2020 Gladiator starts at $46,995 with the 2019 Wrangler starting at $33,695 and the 2019 Wrangler Unlimited starting at $41,495.
