Say Hello to the Jeep Gladiator

Are you in the market for a new vehicle but you just can’t seem to make up your mind between a Dodge Ram pickup truck and a Jeep? Living in Ontario means needing a rugged, durable, and dependable vehicle to carry us through long drives in the summer and difficult snow-packed roads and blizzards in the winter. For many, an element of play also comes into the equation. For work and toughness, a Dodge Ram truck is the right option. For the fun and free-spirited (along with rugged strength and durability), a Jeep may be more enticing.

Both offer expertly-crafted steering and handling as well as cozy interiors so you can relax whether it’s scorching hot or freezing cold outside. Both are exciting to drive, last for hundreds of thousands of miles with the right care and maintenance, are easy to repair, and are safe and comfortable for you and your loved ones.

Given our roads and your need for a rugged machine, you may be leaning towards a Ram truck in Ontario. While we’ll be happy to help you get behind the wheel of the right Dodge truck for you (regardless of good or bad credit), we do want to point out a new jeep model that may give you the tough vehicle you’re looking for while also providing that adventurer’s spirit that only Jeeps can provide: the Jeep Gladiator.

The Jeep Gladiator is basically the beautiful marriage of a Jeep Wrangler (the popular model you see across the roads) and a durable pickup truck like the Dodge Ram 1500.

Thanks to a 3.6-liter V6 engine, the Jeep Gladiator has plenty of power to pull you through the toughest mud and get you safely from A to B, no matter what the weather and roads look like. This engine is the same one that’s in the Jeep Wrangler, but you do have the option to pack-in a bit more power and choose the engine that the Dodge Ram 1500 uses: the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel. Now that’s rugged.

When compared to a typical truck, the Jeep Gladiator can easily transition to off-road terrain and can comfortably navigate through dirt, mud, and any trail you want to tackle. The Jeep suspension system allows you to roll over unpaved roads and terrain with ease (and without jostling).

While Jeep Wranglers and the other models offer a good amount of storage, due to its pickup truck-inspired design, the Gladiator offers more storage for your wants and needs. It’s perfect for moving and transporting items in the truck bed. Your friends may be calling you more to help them move if you grab one of these.

What about the fun we mentioned? Well, once the summer finally rolls in, just like a Wrangler, you can pop the doors of the Gladiator and go cruising around with the wind rushing throughout the cabin for ultimate freedom. Until then, the cab of the Gladiator is warm well-insulated, therefore warm and cozy to get you through the rest of the cold months.

If you’re curious about the perfect blend of fun, adventure, and durability, come down to our Jeep dealership in Ontario to learn more and take a Jeep Gladiator for a test drive! We also have plenty of other incredible Dodge and Jeep models in our fleet, and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect vehicle for your needs, regardless of your credit!
