Off-Road Features of the Jeep Gladiator vs Chevy Colorado

You want your pickup truck to be as prepared as you for every challenge to come in the open road. As for these two, they both perform great off-road. The Jeep Gladiator comes with body and roof panels that you can easily take off. Because sometimes, you just want to feel the ultimate outdoor experience.

When venturing off-road, the Jeep Gladiator's standard 6-speed manual transmission offers drivers increased control over gear selection, proving advantageous in navigating challenging terrains at low speeds. Manual transmissions are also known to be less susceptible to overheating in extreme off-road conditions. This feature becomes essential for off-road enthusiasts tackling rough landscapes. In contrast, the Chevy, without the option for a manual transmission, comes with a standard 8-speed automatic transmission.

If we compare the basic trim level, the Sport trim level of the Jeep Gladiator, and the WT trim level on the Chevy Colorado, the Gladiator reaches 285 horsepower, above the Chevy with 237 horsepower. One of the benefits of having more horsepower is going off-road with total confidence, knowing that your vehicle is prepared to face the challenges ahead.

Long Trips Onboard the Jeep Gladiator vs Chevy Colorado

Both models offer cruise control, allowing you to ease the strain on your feet during long trips. However, it's worth noting that while cruise control is an available feature for the Chevy Colorado, it comes standard in the base trim level of the Jeep Gladiator.

Regarding the room for the rear seats, the Gladiator goes with 38.3 inches for the legs and for the hip, 55.9 inches, meaning the Jeep Gladiator boasts greater rear space overall. The specs of the Chevy Colorado in those areas are 34.70 inches for legroom and 53.09 inches for hip room. Additionally, the Gladiator offers more front headroom: 42.8 inches vs. 40.3 inches on the Chevy, for your added comfort.

When driving, the touchscreen helps you stay connected to technological amenities and serves as a control center for various functions. If you prefer a larger touchscreen, the Jeep Gladiator offers a 12.3-inch screen, while the Chevy Colorado has a slightly smaller 11.3-inch touchscreen.

Additionally, the Jeep Gladiator offers a fun feature for adventure enthusiasts called the Badge of Honor program.
