The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
4.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Ford Ranger ventures further off the pavement this year with oversized off-road packages for the mid-size truck. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator, for better or worse, is a Wrangler with a bed. Nothing else will satisfy those who seek exactly that, but competitors are more comfortable and more affordable.
