The 2022 Jeep Gladiator vs. the 2022 Toyota Tacoma: Which Truck Is Best for Plymouth, IN Drivers

There are many off-road capable pickup trucks on the market, but none have the power and panache of the 2022 Jeep Gladiator at Auto Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Like the Jeep Wrangler, the Gladiator has a removable roof for open-air driving in Plymouth, IN. The 2022 Toyota Tacoma can also go off the beaten path, but it can't do as much as the Gladiator. Read the following comparison to see why.

 

Performance

Engines

You need a truck with a powerful engine to burrow through muddy trails and scale steep inclines. A muscular motor also helps for merging onto busy highways in South Bend, IN. The new Jeep Gladiator gives you a choice of two V6 engines - a turbocharged 285-horsepower motor and a 260-horsepower turbodiesel engine that makes 442 pound-feet of torque.

The new Toyota Tacoma comes with a 159-horsepower four-cylinder engine. A 278-horsepower V6 engine is available, but it only puts out 265 pound-feet of torque.

Tow Rating

If you ever take your truck for campouts or boating excursions near Mishawaka, IN, you'll want one that can pull a camper or boat. The new Jeep Gladiator can tow up to 7,650 pounds when properly equipped, so it can easily pull most boats or trailer loads.

The new Toyota Tacoma has a towing capacity of 6,800 pounds when properly equipped.

Off-Road Capability

As you might expect, the new Jeep Gladiator has better off-road chops than most trucks in its class. It comes standard with four-wheel drive and 10.1 inches of ground clearance that help you master steep hills or rough trails near Warsaw, IN. Gladiator Rubicon and Mojave trims have locking differentials, upgraded shock absorbers, and more than 11 inches of ground clearance for even stronger capabilities.

The new Toyota Tacoma comes with rear-wheel drive and 9.4 inches of ground clearance. Some of its higher TDR trims are more off-road capable, but they still can't match the proficiency of the Gladiator.

Interior

Passenger Space

If you want to be comfortable on long outings in your truck, you need a roomy cabin with space to stretch out. Taller people in Plymouth, IN will appreciate that the Jeep Gladiator has 38.3 inches of rear legroom and up to 42.8 inches of backseat headroom.

The Toyota Tacoma only has 32.6 inches of rear legroom and 34.9 inches of backseat headroom.

Technology

Infotainment System

Its straightforward menus, snappy responses, and sharp graphics make it a breeze for Plymouth, IN drivers to operate. It also comes standard with an eight-speaker stereo system.

The new Toyota Tacoma's Entune infotainment system is also intuitive, but its standard stereo is just a six-speaker system.
