2022 Jeep Gladiator vs. 2022 Ranger in Kinston, NC

Comparing the 2022 Jeep Gladiator vs. 2022 Ford Ranger

Whether you have to move a heavy payload down the road or explore the trails, you need to know that you can count on your truck for whatever comes your way. The Jeep Gladiator and Ford Ranger stand out in a competitive market with serious muscle, but which one provides the performance you need? Let’s compare them head-to-head to find out.


The engine under the hood of your truck will have to perform under pressure, and you can always count on the Gladiator to come through when you have a job to do. Its standard engine cranks out more horsepower than the Ranger’s sole engine option, and Jeep also offers a brawny turbodiesel V6 that generates an impressive 442 lb-ft of torque. When fully equipped for towing, the Gladiator can tow up to 7,650 pounds, out-muscling the Ford Ranger.

Off-Road Performance

In addition to their hearty towing ability, trucks must also be able to go off-road when duty calls. Jeep has dominated off-road performance for years, and the Gladiator lives up to the manufacturer’s rugged reputation. The truck’s incredible traction and agility make traversing tricky landscapes an adventure, and you can opt for the Rubicon and Mojave trims for added gear like all-terrain tires, locking differentials, and enhanced shocks. The Ranger can be equipped with the Tremor or FX4 packages for skid plates, specialized tires, and other upgrades, but reviewers note that even when fully stocked, the truck doesn’t match the Gladiator’s off-roading prowess.

Cab Quality

Even with all the power and attitude these trucks offer, there’s no reason to skip out on interior quality. Jeep combines their signature durability with supportive and cushioned seating, and the interior materials can withstand unpredictable outings without sacrificing style or comfort. Like its Wrangler relative, the Gladiator also allows you to take down the windshield and doors for a true open-air experience. On the other hand, low-end plastics abound in the Ranger, which sports a relatively dated appearance.
