Off-Road Capability & Features Comparison
The Wrangler continues to be Jeep's flagship off-road SUV model, showcasing many great options to support its incredible capability. Although you can depend on the 2023 Wrangler off-road even with its standard configuration, opting for a Rubicon trim enhances off-road capability considerably. A few of the most noteworthy features of the Rubicon trims include 33-inch all-terrain tires, Off-Road Plus mode, Rock-Trac four-wheel-drive system, electronic sway bar disconnect, and Tru-Lock electronic locking differential.
Compared to the Jeep Wrangler, the latest Gladiator also excels off-road as standard and is available with a Rubicon trim level to enhance its capabilities further. However, it's still a pickup truck model, which puts it at a slight disadvantage when off-roading against the renowned Jeep Wrangler. The Gladiator Rubicon offers similar off-road equipment, including 33-inch all-terrain tires, Rock-Trac heavy-duty four-wheel-drive system, performance shock absorbers, and Tru-Lock axles.
Engine Options & Performance Comparison
With the 2023 Jeep Wrangler, you will find four powertrain options, providing you with the driving experience you desire. As standard, this Jeep SUV gets a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine with ESS and a six-speed manual transmission, providing great output figures of 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, a 3.6-litre V6 engine with the eTorque mild-hybrid system is also available, bringing an eight-speed automatic transmission to replace the standard manual option. Besides the V6 engine options, you can opt for the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Exclusive to the Rubicon 392 trim level is a 6.4-litre HEMI V8 engine with 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
On the other hand, you can configure the 2023 Gladiator with only two engine options, with the standard engine being quite comparable to the Jeep Wrangler. The standard engine of the new Gladiator is a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine with ESS, offering to be paired with either the standard six-speed manual transmission or eight-speed automatic transmission. Regardless, the standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine still delivers the same output of 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. As for the optional 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 engine, you can expect it to deliver 260 horsepower and an impressive 442 lb-ft of torque.
