Choose the Right Truck for the Job and Off-Road Adventure around Santa Monica: 2020 Jeep Gladiator vs 2020 Toyota Tacoma

Santa Monica Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Ram understands that it can be somewhat tedious to decide on the better truck to purchase or lease. That's why we want to help by offering this comparison of the brand-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator with another popular model, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma.

Performance for Any Journey

Both the new Jeep Gladiator and the new Toyota Tacoma are strong contenders for powerful trucks that can handle off-roading. However, it seems to be clear that the Jeep Gladiator is the right truck to pick for Santa Monica drivers wanting higher performance.

  • The 2020 Jeep Gladiator dominates the Toyota Tacoma when it comes to powertrains. The standard V6 for the Jeep Gladiator provides an impressive 285 horsepower. While the Tacoma has two engine options, the better of the two only pushes out 278 horsepower.
  • Equipped with the stronger V6 and six-speed manual transmission, the Toyota Tacoma gets 17 city mpg and 20 highway mpg. The new Jeep Gladiator, on the other hand, gets 17 in the city and 22 on the highway with its standard V6 and manual transmission.
  • The new Jeep Gladiator also provides a smoother ride as the suspension is quite better than the new Toyota Tacoma. For a more comfortable and smoother ride in most driving situations, choose the 2020 Jeep Gladiator.

Off-Roading Capabilities

Both of these popular truck models can be taken off-road with ease. Although, it is clear that the Jeep brand's knowledge of creating off-roading vehicles makes the new Jeep Gladiator the better pick for drivers that seek a versatile truck.

  • Traverse rough terrain in confidence with the 2020 Jeep Gladiator as there are up to 11.1 inches of ground clearance. The new Toyota Tacoma only offers 9.4 inches of ground clearance.
  • The new Jeep Gladiator comes standard with skid plates, whereas you'd have to work up several trims to get skid plates on the Toyota Tacoma.
  • A bonus when purchasing or leasing the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is that it's the only trail-rated pickup truck. This badge that's on every Jeep Gladiator means this new Jeep truck is ready for any adventure you want to embark on.

Interior Features and Space

While power and capabilities are important features when deciding on a new truck, so are interior features and space for passengers. After close consideration, it seems that the 2020 Jeep Gladiator reigns supreme again.

  • While the Toyota Tacoma comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto when the Jeep Gladiator does not, the new Jeep Gladiator comes with an eight-speaker stereo system and the Tacoma comes with a six-speaker stereo system.
  • The 2020 Jeep Gladiator has an available removable Bluetooth wireless speaker. This speaker has a high level of dust protection and is water-resistant for up to 3 feet and 30 minutes. There is no such option available with the 2020 Toyota Tacoma.
  • The base model for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator features a soft folding top with a sunroof feature, allowing for natural light and warm summer breezes to enter the cabin. The Toyota Tacoma doesn't have anything like this available. 
  • Passengers will enjoy the ride around Santa Monica more in the new Jeep Gladiator since they'll be able to stretch out easily. In the rear seats, the new Jeep truck has 38.3 inches of legroom. The Tacoma only offers 32.6 inches of legroom.
