The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.8
5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier is thoroughly modernized with big improvements in ride quality and technology.
