Is the New Jeep Gladiator or the Ram 1500 Best for You?

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.
