Select a category below to learn more about how the Jeep Gladiator compares to the Ford Bronco.
Jeep Gladiator

Under the hood of every good pickup truck is a high-strength engine, providing the power and the zip needed to complete your daily tasks. Starting with the Ford Bronco, you’ll have a standard 2.3L EcoBoost® engine that provides 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. This versatile truck can tow up to 7,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Built for Exploration

Their strength can truly be seen through their maximum towing capacities when properly equipped:

  • Jeep Gladiator: 7,650 pounds
  • Ford Bronco: 4,500 pounds

While the Bronco puts out a valiant effort, the Gladiator can tow heavier toys overall. So, if you own a camper or a boat, the Jeep may be the stronger option to choose when you’re ready to visit the campground or your favorite fishing spot.

What do mountain biking, hiking, and kayaking have in common? All of these require some form of safety equipment! Similarly, the Jeep Gladiator and the Ford Bronco allow you to indulge in Mother Nature’s playground.

An Adventure-Proof Vehicle

To keep you out of harm’s way, both models can be equipped with these available safety systems:

  • Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking Blind Spot Monitoring Rear Cross Path Detection

However, it is the Jeep that continues to watch your back, even after you’ve arrived at your destination. ParkSense® Rear Park Assist uses sonar sensors to detect obstacles behind the Gladiator when backing into a parking spot. Unfortunately, the Ford Bronco goes without similar parking sensors.

It also doesn't have an available Corning® Gorilla® Glass windshield—a durable windshield available in the Gladiator that offers greater resistance to cracks and chips caused by kicked-up off-road debris.

One of the key differences between the Jeep Gladiator and the Ford Bronco is that the Jeep is a truck while the Bronco is an SUV. Despite their difference in body style, both models allow you to experience open-air freedom with their removable tops and doors!

Utility Space for Any Occasion

However, if you really want to experience your adventure, the Gladiator adds a few additional ways for you to do so:

  • Fold-down windshield: This segment-exclusive windshield is perfect for those unafraid of experiencing the elements head on.
  • Available half doors: You can increase your visibility by removing the windows from the doors.

Unfortunately, the Bronco doesn't offer either of these features, which creates a unique riding experience for everyone in the cabin. As an SUV, the Ford is also missing the Gladiator’s all-steel 5-foot cargo bed, which boasts a best-in-class 1,700-pound payload when properly equipped!

This extra utility space is perfect for loading up dirt bikes, camping gear, or home renovation supplies. The cargo bed can also function as a bed! If you want to experience sleeping under the stars, all you have to do is throw a blanket down and get comfortable.

While the Bronco has impressive trunk space of its own, it lacks a cargo bed, which can come in handy when you need room for any gear that doesn’t need to be towed.

Which Off-Road-Ready Model Fits Your Sense of Adventure?

Let’s be honest, both the 2022 Jeep Gladiator and the 2022 Ford Bronco will satisfy your next adventure.
