Comparing the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator and 2020 Toyota Tacoma

Small trucks are gaining in popularity thanks to how adventure friendly they’ve become. One of the best options in this category is the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator , now available at our Thousand Oaks Jeep dealership .

However, if you’re on the fence, then you should consider how this Jeep model stacks up against competitors like the 2020 Toyota Tacoma. Today, Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, serving Los Angeles shows you the differences between these two great vehicles.

Performance, Capability and Specs

First and foremost, the Jeep Gladiator is unmatched when it comes to strength and capability. A 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out 285 horsepower comes standard on all trims. Couple that with the Jeep Gladiator’s Best-In-Class towing capability of up to 7,650 lbs. and a payload capacity of up to 1,600 lbs, and you’ve got the perfect adventure truck. And don’t forget about the legendary Jeep 4×4 and Trail Rated® badge.

Coming standard under the how of the Toyota Tacoma is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that’s able to put out 159 horsepower. If we’re keeping score, that’s over 100 less horsepower then what comes standard on the Gladiator. And while the 2020 Toyota Tacoma is certainly no slouch, the towing capacity also falls short at 3,500 lbs.

Safety and Technology

The Jeep Gladiator has you covered when it comes to safety. You’ll find standard and available driver assist systems with driver alerts/monitors for blind spots, forward collisions, and rear cross-path detection. Plus, towing is more efficient and safer with the available Trailer Sway System.

The Tacoma features the available Toyota Safety SenseTM that includes a pre-collision system with lane change alert, as well as road sign and lane tracing assist.

The Jeep Gladiator gives you three available Uconnect® systems, including Uconnect 4C NAV, with Apple CarPlay® and Android AutoTM, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and SiriusXM radio.

The Tacoma isn’t quite as sophisticated but you can find some similar available infotainment features, including Apple CarPlay, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and a panoramic view monitor.

Buying a 2020 Jeep Gladiator

Simply put, both vehicles are certainly adventure ready. However the 2020 Jeep Gladiators seems to be the better of the two thanks to a stronger engine and greater towing capacity.
