Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Gladiator than in the Chevrolet Colorado. The Chevrolet Colorado will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Jeep Gladiator.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Colorado as you will with the Jeep Gladiator, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Chevrolet Colorado is a better financial choice over the Jeep Gladiator, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Colorado carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Gladiator.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Colorado is about the same width as the Jeep Gladiator. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Colorado, which is slightly longer than the Jeep Gladiator.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Colorado transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Jeep Gladiator.

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado has a similar turning radius to the Jeep Gladiator, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Colorado is clearly the choice over the Jeep Gladiator for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Colorado has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Gladiator.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Chevrolet Colorado as you will the Jeep Gladiator. You'll be able to haul more material in the Chevrolet Colorado than the Jeep Gladiator, due to its significantly greater cargo capacity.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Colorado comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Gladiator.
