Stellants currently has two great trucks known as the 1500 and the Jeep Gladiator, which are available. Both options have a lot of bonuses and benefits to consider. But how will you decide between the Jeep Gladiator and 2023?
2023 Ram 1500 vs. 2023 Jeep Gladiator: Which Truck Is Better?
The 2023 Ram 1500 each has unique advantages to consider, but we’ll start with ride quality. The Gladiator is built on the Jeep Wrangler platform and is smaller than the Ram 1500.
It can tow up to 12,750 lbs and carry a payload of up to 2,300 lbs. It can carry more payload than a 2023 Jeep Gladiator. If you have a larger RV to tow, consider RAM.
But Gladiator is still impressive. It can tow up to 7,700 pounds, giving it best-in-class towing capacity. It can also carry up to 1710 payloads. It is well equipped for towing mid-size campers and adventure vehicles.
With the RAM, you can choose the 5.0-foot-7.0-inch bed or the 6.0-foot-4.0-inch bed. The largest option offers 61.5 cubic feet of storage space.
The Gladiator features a bed that measures 60.3 inches long by 44.8 inches wide. Provides 35.5 cubic feet of cargo space.
Both trucks are available with a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine. It offers 285 horsepower and 422 lb-ft of torque in the Gladiator and 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque with the Ram.
Is Gladiator better for off-road driving?
The 2023 has some off-road advantages over the 2023 Ram 1500. It’s smaller, making it easier to fit on tight trails. It features a unique two-speed transfer case with off-road gearing, Fox shocks and a 4.10 rear axle ratio.
Both trucks feature factory-installed lifts, steel skid plates, tow hooks, an electronic locking rear differential, and modified fenders.
But the Ram 1500 also has adjustable air suspension, Bilstein adaptive dampers, upgraded engine cooling, 35-inch all-terrain tires, and a high-performance exhaust system. But those upgrades come with the pricey Ram 1500 TRX trim.
Both the Ram 1500 and the Jeep Gladiator are excellent for work and play. While the Gladiator is more convenient, the Ram is more comfortable. It also has more passenger and cargo space. You can tow more with a Ram, but the Gladiator is more affordable for off-road driving.
Choosing between these two trucks comes down to your personal needs for space, comfort, action and adventure.
