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 Ford Maverick. The Ford Maverick offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Jeep Gladiator, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

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 Ford Maverick 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. Both the Ford Maverick and the Jeep Gladiator have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Maverick is a little narrower than the Jeep Gladiator, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Ford Maverick, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Jeep Gladiator.

Handling
The Ford Maverick has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Jeep Gladiator, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Gladiator is clearly the choice over the Ford Maverick for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Maverick is clearly outclassed by the Jeep Gladiator.

Powertrain
The Ford Maverick offers much less torque than the Jeep Gladiator, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Ford Maverick as you will the Jeep Gladiator. The Ford Maverick has a little less cargo capacity than the Jeep Gladiator for hauling material.

Warranty
The Ford Maverick comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Gladiator.
