Jeep Gladiator Vs. Chevy Colorado

November 12th, 2021 by

Ask any Jeep® driver and they’ll tell you — there’s a reason the automaker’s fans are so loyal to Jeep SUVs. And with the 2021 Jeep Gladiator, we can finally add trucks to that list again.

At Twin Lakes Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we can help you get behind the wheel of a new Jeep Gladiator. But you may be wondering how this unique truck stacks up against the competition. Here’s a breakdown of how it compares with the Chevy Colorado, another competitor in its segment.

Trim Level Breakdown

The 2021 Chevy Colorado comes with a choice between four different trim levels, with a crew or extended cab available for each. The trims are as follows: Work Truck, LT, Z71, and ZR2.

The 2021 Jeep Gladiator, however, is no stranger to customization. No less than 10 different trim levels are offered for this truck; allowing you to select exactly the features you desire. Its models are able to be configured to a doorless and roofless setup as well.

Powertrain Options

The Jeep Gladiator offers a choice of two different types of engines: a standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine that makes 285 horsepower and 260 lbs-ft of torque. It pairs with a six-speed manual transmission, which can be upgraded to an optional eight-speed automatic. An available diesel 3.0-liter V-6 engine makes 260 horsepower and a whipping 442 lbs-ft of torque.

While the Chevy Colorado offers three engine options, including a diesel engine, it maxes out at 369 lbs-ft of torque, falling far short of the Gladiator truck’s twist.

Tow Capacity

With their most powerful diesel engine configurations, the Jeep Gladiator and the Chevy Colorado max out at around the same tow capacity: 7,650 pounds and 7,700 pounds, respectively. But the base model Jeep truck tops out at 500 pounds more than its Chevy counterpart, at 4,000 pounds to Chevy’s 3,500.
