Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab may find themselves a little more squished in the RAM 3500 than the Jeep Gladiator. The Jeep Gladiator will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers since it has much greater head- and legroom than the RAM 3500.

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 RAM 3500 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Jeep Gladiator, 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 RAM 3500 is much higher than that of the Jeep Gladiator.

Dimensions
Since the RAM 3500 is much wider than the Jeep Gladiator, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the RAM 3500, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Gladiator.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the RAM 3500 does a much better job of transmitting the horsepower of the engine to the wheels than the Jeep Gladiator.

Handling
The RAM 3500 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jeep Gladiator, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the RAM 3500 is clearly the choice over the Jeep Gladiator for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the RAM 3500 greatly outmuscles the Jeep Gladiator.

Utility
The RAM 3500 offers a little more seating capacity than the Jeep Gladiator, making it a better choice for those who often have a crew with them. You'll be able to haul more material in the RAM 3500 than the Jeep Gladiator, due to its significantly greater cargo capacity.

Warranty
The RAM 3500 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Gladiator.
