2021 Jeep Gladiator vs 2021 Ford Ranger

Truck shopping can be overwhelming with all the different models on the market. This is why the team at Marburger thought we would compare some of the most popular ones, starting with the 2021 Jeep Gladiator and the 2021 Ford Ranger.

2021 Jeep Gladiator Power & Handling

Gladiator Rubicon offers two intense ways to maximize your off-road adventure. The standard front and rear Tru-Lok Electronic Locking Differentials provide maximum traction, and the all-new lockable rear axle can be used at higher speeds or on the dunes. Jeep's 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine brings 285 horsepower and 260-foot pounds of torque with Engine Stop-Start technology and is the standard engine for the 2021 Gladiator. There is the available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine that offers up to 260 horsepower and Best-in-Class torque of 442 pound-feet for those that want more. Gladiator's Rock-Trac transfer case with 4:1 low range delivers an 84:1 crawl ratio and will crush whatever obstacle you throw at it. With the FOX aluminum-bodied 2-inch diameter shocks, drivers will experience a comfortable on-road ride and predictable off-road handling in even the toughest conditions.

2021 Ford Ranger Power & Handling

Ford gave the 2021 Ranger their 2.3L EcoBoost engine with 310 lb.-ft of torque and 270 horsepower. The 2.3L engine comes with Auto Start-Stop Technology offering better fuel efficiency, and is paired with Ford's 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. This transmission features Ford-patented technology that optimizes gear progressions and delivers smooth, quick-shifting up and down the gearbox. The 2021 Ranger has a fully boxed frame made from high-strength steel and offers six cross members for added support. All 4x4 Ranger with the FX2 Package has frame-mounted steel bumpers and tow hooks. The 2021 Ford Ranger has a double A-arm independent front suspension engineered for agility and control over rugged off-road terrain. The all-new available Tremor Off-Road Package includes features that will transform your Ranger into the ultimate Off-Road vehicle.
