The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.8
5.0
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 2021 Toyota Tacoma wears its age like a badge of honor.
