2022 Jeep Gladiator vs. Its Competition

2022 Jeep Gladiator
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Mid-size pickup trucks are a very competitive segment that’s set to welcome even more contenders soon.

For now, the Gladiator goes up against a strong set of rivals, starting with the longstanding Toyota Tacoma and its robust resale value.

The Honda Ridgeline is a very practical choice, with a unibody platform that gives it a larger cabin and more comfortable ride than competitors.

The Nissan Frontier treks on, with lots of improvement to its cabin and its body rigidity from its recent redesign.

The Ford Ranger returned in 2019 with a strong turbo-4 engine, while the Chevrolet Colorado debuted a few years before that and offers a diesel engine of its own.
