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 GMC Canyon. The GMC Canyon 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 GMC Canyon 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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Canyon will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Gladiator. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The GMC Canyon carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Gladiator.

The GMC Canyon is about the same width as the Jeep Gladiator. The GMC Canyon is slightly shorter than the Jeep Gladiator, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The GMC Canyon has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Gladiator, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the GMC Canyon is clearly the choice over the Jeep Gladiator for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Canyon 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 GMC Canyon as you will the Jeep Gladiator. The GMC Canyon has a slightly greater cargo capacity for your lumber or other material than the Jeep Gladiator.
