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. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Gladiator is much higher than that of the Nissan Frontier.

If you go with the Jeep Gladiator, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan Frontier.

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