2020 Jeep Gladiator vs. 2019 Toyota Tacoma: Compare Trucks

It’s hard to imagine two more versatile vehicles than the 2019 Toyota Tacoma and the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. These two pickup trucks offer seating for five in a pinch, plenty of storage, good towing ability, and serious off-road chops.

Neither is perfect, but we think the Jeep Gladiator is more honest about its intentions than the Toyota Tacoma. The 2020 Gladiator rates 5.2 out of 10 on our scale while the 2019 Tacoma scores 4.8. That’s a thin margin and both trucks are available as serious off-roaders in Gladiator Rubicon and Tacoma TRD Pro guise. It’s those two we’ve picked to compare here.

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator pairs everything we love and hate about the Wrangler with a useful pickup bed. The 2019 Toyota Tacoma has its assets, but its reputation might be its primary lure for some shoppers.
