The Gladiator is available with forward collision warning and advanced brake assist, plus adaptive cruise control. with a low-speed function, which is fully capable of stopping the vehicle in traffic and getting it going again once the car in front has started moving, blind spot monitoring, and rear parking sensors. Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) had crash-tested the Gladiator at the time of compiling this review.

Competition

2021 Jeep Gladiator vs the competition

2021 Jeep Wrangler — Consider the Wrangler if a truck bed is not required. It comes in both 4-door and 2-door body styles, both of which are shorter than the Gladiator, and therefore more maneuverable off-road. 2021 Ford Bronco — Also not a truck, but another iconic off-roader reimagined for the 21st century. And a credible alternative to the Wrangler. Pricing starts at around $30,000. 2021 Toyota Tacoma — The Tacoma offers great reliability and a wide array of aftermarket additions. Buyers also have some choice of body style and configuration, with extended cab and long bed options, in addition to the crew cab/short bed configuration like the Gladiator. But the Tacoma lags behind the Gladiator in terms of powertrain and interior refinement, and doesn’t have the Jeep’s “toy like” qualities. 2021 Ford Ranger — The Ranger truck has a great turbocharged engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, giving it what is arguably the best powertrain in its class. But a lack of refinement presents itself in areas like the interior and un-damped tailgate. 2021 Toyota 4Runner — Another popular adventure vehicle, the 4Runner offers great off-road capability and some cool features. It’s also one of the oldest brand-new vehicles on sale, having last been fully redesigned for 2010. So it doesn’t have the same current tech as the more modern Gladiator.
