For too long, the old guard of small trucks has gone unchallenged and unchanged. Now the Chevy Colorado finally has worthy competition with the all-new Jeep Gladiator. That’s right, Jeep made a truck, and they smartly based it almost entirely off the Wrangler. In the process, they made one of the most rugged trucks on the market, and we are prepared to prove it with our 2020 Jeep Gladiator vs 2020 Chevy Colorado comparison. These two trucks will go toe-to-toe in metrics like horsepower, payload, and more.
We hope this helps you determine which truck is right for you, and if you are looking for a new truck in Albany, OR, you can check out our Gladiator at Albany CDJR. Click the link below to see the new Gladiator models we have available.
The Jeep Gladiator parks a standard 3.6-liter V6 under the hood, and this monster can pump out up to 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet torque. In the Chevy Colorado you only get a 4-cylinder engine under the hood standard, which is going to leave something to be desired.
The Colorado can pad some of its numbers because it offers a small cab with seating for only two adults. This small cab has a lower weight, but Jeep found that most consumers have no interest in these smaller cab variants which is why the Gladiator comes with a larger cab standard. You can seat five people in every Jeep Gladiator.
The Gladiator still manages to provide more payload capacity than the Colorado with up to 1,700 pounds of payload capacity. In addition to that, the Gladiator just has more features with available options like adaptive cruise control and more.
Speaking of features, the Gladiator retains many of the unique features you can get with the Wrangler. The Gladiator has a removable roof standard. You can get that roof as either a soft-top or a hardtop. On higher trims, you can even get that hardtop in the same color as the body. The doors are also fully removable and even the front windshield flips down. The Colorado can’t make any of these claims that’s for sure.
