The Jeep Gladiator and Ram 1500 are both very capable trucks that have excellent tow ratings, an abundance of technology, and can handle basically any off-road challenge. The choice simply comes down to what size truck you want to purchase from Dean Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Brainbridge.

Jeep Gladiator

The new Jeep Gladiator is a mid-sized truck that was designed from the Jeep Wrangler platform, but it is much more than a Wrangler with a bed. It has a completely different frame and a much longer wheelbase. It also features a new sophisticated five-link rear suspension for improved handling and drivability. The Gladiator is available in the following trims: Sport, Sport S, Rubicon, and Overland. All models come standard with four doors.

Under the hood, the new Gladiator is powered by the Jeep brand's proven 3.6-liter V6 that produces 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine can be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox. Four-wheel-drive is standard on all models. A 3.0-liter diesel engine is expected at a later date.

Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 is a full-sized truck that provides a smooth ride like a luxury sedan. The cabin is very quiet and has an elegant look and feel. It has plenty of cargo capacity and the flexibility to be a work truck or a luxury truck. Buyers will be pleased that the Ram 1500 has seven available trims to fit basically any need. Some standard features include Bluetooth, a 5.0-inch touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system, a rearview camera, USB ports, keyless ignition, and trailer sway control.

Under the hood, all Ram 1500 trims come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that generates 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. For buyers that desire more power, a 5.7-liter V8 engine that pumps out 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque is available. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels. Four-wheel-drive is optional on all trims except the HFE.

No matter which truck you like, both are excellent choices for drivers around Donalsonville and Thomasville, GA.
