Both the Gladiator and the RAM 1500 have impressive off-roading prowess, especially the Gladiator, with features like:

RAM 1500

  • The All-New 4×4 Off-Road Package, boasting features like one-inch suspension lift, Hill Descent Control, tow hooks, skid plates, and electronic locking rear differential
  • Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension System for better fuel efficiency and towing/loading/hauling

Jeep Gladiator

  • Removable doors & windshield
  • 4×4 capability
  • Lockable wide track axles
  • Electronic disconnecting sway bar
  • 33-inch all-terrain tires
  • Forward-facing TrailCam Off-Road Camera

Since the Gladiator has a lot of the same off-roading capabilities as the Jeep Wrangler, it boasts many more off-roading features than the RAM 1500. But with the optional RAM 1500 4×4 Off-Road Package, you can go the distance with this truck as well, especially if you opt for a lift kit from our Parts Department.

Interior Features

The RAM 1500 and the Jeep Gladiator are loaded with many of the same impressive interior features, like the available Uconnect® 4C NAV infotainment system, available leather upholstery, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, but each model does come with its own interior distinctions.

The RAM 1500 hosts innovative interior features like the largest-in-class available 12-inch vertical touchscreen, available Harman Kardon Premium Audio System, available Natura Leather upholstery, and an available reclining rear bench seat.

The Gladiator, on the other hand, offers interior features like the largest-in-class 8.4-inch touchscreen, and an available industry-exclusive wireless removable Bluetooth speaker.
