Which truck is right for you: Gladiator or Tacoma?

A lot about what makes a truck is what’s under the hood. Of course with the Gladiator you have a genuine frame and all the makings of a truck, but it’s the engine that pushes it over the top. With a standard 285 horsepower V6 engine, it’s no surprise that the Gladiator also wins the war when it comes to towing.

With a difference of over 300 kilograms of towing capacity available, the Gladiator is really ready for anything you need. Want to tow a boat, a camper, or even another Jeep? The Gladiator is ready to handle it. In this metric, the Tacoma just falls short.

Four-wheel drive is important to most truck buyers, especially with the harsh winters and rough trails up here in Edmonton. If you are looking for a four-wheel-drive truck, then it’s good to know that every Gladiator sold comes with four-wheel drive standard. This is not the case with the 2019 Tacoma.

The Tacoma has some seating options that you have to pay more for, but you only get seating for two people standard. However, the Gladiator comes standard with seating for five meaning that not only do you have a capable truck, but you have a truck that’s ready for the family.
