Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Gladiator as you will with the Nissan Frontier, 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). The Jeep Gladiator will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Frontier, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
The Jeep Gladiator is a little wider than the Nissan Frontier, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Gladiator, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Frontier.

Handling
The Jeep Gladiator has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Frontier, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Frontier is clearly the choice over the Jeep Gladiator for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Gladiator has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Frontier.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Gladiator doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Nissan Frontier.

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