2020 Jeep Gladiator vs. 2020 Jeep Wrangler: Compare Trucks

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator and 2020 Jeep Wrangler serve different market segments—one’s a pickup and the other’s an SUV—but they are very similar. In fact, the Gladiator amounts to a longer version of the Wrangler with a pickup bed. Both cater to buyers looking for adventure, both are great off-road, and both get expensive quickly.

We award the Wrangler and Gladiator similar scores of 5.4 and 5.2 out of 10, respectively, with the Wrangler earning the higher score for its more efficient base engine. Otherwise, they share similar styling and performance, neither has complete crash test scores, and they are similar inside. They also offer cool features that have made the Wrangler so endearing, such as removable roofs and doors, and go-anywhere four-wheel-drive capability.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator pairs everything we love and hate about the Wrangler with a useful pickup bed. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is an American SUV icon and off-road wonder, but not without compromise.
