2020 Jeep Gladiator vs 2020 Ford Ranger

Here at Len Stoler, we understand that finding the right midsize pickup truck that meshes perfectly with your lifestyle can be a strenuous task when there are so many great options to choose from. We have taken it upon ourselves to help you narrow down the segment by comparing two of the top models offered. On the left, we have a brand-new introduction to the segment, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator and on the right, we have the capable 2020 Ford Ranger. Keep reading as we go over all these trucks have to offer!

2020 Jeep Gladiator Power & Handling

There are two engine options offered for the Jeep Gladiator. The standard engine, the beloved 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, pumps out 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This engine can be mated with the standard 6-speed manual or the available 8-speed automatic. The second engine offered, a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, generates 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. This engine is only mated with the 8-speed automatic transmission. Ready to tackle any job, the Gladiator can tow up to 7,650 pounds! Plus, four-wheel-drive is standard on every trim level no matter the engine or transmission!

2020 Ford Ranger Power & Handling

The Ford Ranger is powered by just one engine in the 2020 model year. This 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-4 produces 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Ford mates this engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Towing is possible with the Ranger, maxing out at 7,500 pounds. Rear-wheel drive is the standard configuration for this truck but drivers can opt for the available four-wheel-drive configuration.

2020 Jeep Gladiator Features & Design

The Gladiator is offered in four trim levels in the 2020 model year. The base Sport model comes outfitted with a rearview camera, crank windows, a fold-down windshield, cruise control, Bluetooth, a 5-inch touchscreen, convertible roof, removable doors, and an eight-speaker sound system. The upper trim levels expand on the Sport with features like power locks and mirrors, alloy wheels, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 7-inch touchscreen, side steps, automatic headlights, 33-inch all-terrain tires, increased fender clearance, skid plates, Fox shock absorbers, and so much more!

2020 Ford Ranger Features & Design

The Ford Ranger is only offered in three trim levels. The base XL trim comes outfitted with features like a rearview camera, power windows and door locks, SYNC 3 infotainment system with FordPass Connect, and pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking. The upper two trim levels add an 8-inch touchscreen, Co-Pilot360, cruise control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, heated side mirrors, and intelligent access with push-button start.


While both of these midsize pickup trucks have great features and can tow a lot, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator pulls ahead with ease!
