The midsize pickup truck class of the automotive industry has been building toward something for quite some time. As far as the inventory available at Albany Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is concerned, the arrival of the Jeep Gladiator has really changed the game. The automaker has developed the Gladiator to offer class-leading performance on- and off-road as well as towing and payload capability that will give midsize truck buyers something new to think about. A comparison of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator vs. 2019 Toyota Tacoma will provide our customers with a very clear picture of why the Gladiator is in a position to be at the top of its segment for years to come. The 2020 Jeep pickup truck offers more standard power, more available maximum towing capacity and more access to connectivity technology.

All versions of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will use a 3.6-liter, V-6 engine that can be attached to a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. All trim grades will produce 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet. Base models will be able to tow up to 4,000 pounds. However, when the 2020 Gladiator is properly equipped, owners will be able to tow up to 7,650 pounds. Additionally, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator can be equipped with a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 later in the midsize truck’s production schedule.
On the other side of the equation is the 2019 Toyota Tacoma. That automaker still employs a naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine with a peak output of 159 horsepower that can tow up to 3,500 pounds. A 278-horsepower V-6 engine is also available. It also can’t pull as much as a properly equipped 2020 Gladiator.
Jeep has included its fourth generation Uconnect infotainment with many available trims of the 2020 Gladiator. Albany CDJR customers will be able to choose between 7- and 8.4-inch touchscreen versions. Additionally, Gladiators will be able to access both the Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® suites of applications. Potential buyers of the 2019 Tacoma will not be able to use either suite of apps and, instead, be limited to the Toyota proprietary infotainment system.
