(Posted on Jun 17, 2021 at 02:01PM by Josh Lew)
<a href="[%2CJeep%2CGladiator%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/jeep_gladiator_mojave_desert.jpg"alt="A grey 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave driving on a desert hill with a sunset in the background"/></a>Both Jeep and Toyota are known for being rugged and reliable brands. The 2021 Gladiator Mojave and 2021 Tacoma Access Cab 6A, therefore, live up to this image; and they bring features such as 4x4 drivetrains and traction control to the highway. 

Which one of the pair comes out ahead when you venture away from the pavement, however?

2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave

Drive Type: 4x4
Tires: 33-inch Falken LT285/70R17
Ground Clearance: 281 mm
Approach Angle (degrees): 44.7
Departure Angle: 25.5 

2021 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 6A

Drive Type: 4x4
Tires: P245/75SR16
Ground Clearance: 239 mm
Approach Angle (degrees): 29
Departure Angle: 23 

The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave stands head and shoulders above the Tacoma when it comes to off-road driving. Its 281 mm of ground clearance and 44.7-degree approach angle mean that it can ford streams and climb steep inclines with ease.

The 2021 Mojave's Off-Road Plus mode and industry-exclusive FOX hydraulic shocks can help it conquer the roughest conditions; and, should you encounter an issue, the full-size spare tire is there to get you back on the trail without skipping a beat. 

Contact our Calgary dealership today to schedule a test drive in the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave or one of its equally capable sister trims.
<a href="[%2CJeep%2CGladiator%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/jeep_gladiator_seating.jpg"alt="Interior of a 2021 Jeep Gladiator with the door removed, showing all five seats, the steering wheel, and front dashboard"/></a>Both the 2021 Jeep Gladiator and the 2021 Toyota Tacoma possess similar payload and towing figures. However, transporting people comfortably is another story. Which of the two boasts a roomier cabin?

2021 Jeep Gladiator 

Seating Capacity: 5
Front Headroom/Legroom: 1,087 mm/1,038 mm
Rear Headroom/Legroom: 1,087 mm/966 mm
Rear Shoulder/Hip Room: 1,417 mm/1,421 mm

2021 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab

Seating Capacity: 4-5
Front Headroom/Legroom: 1,008 mm/1,089 mm
Rear Headroom/Legroom: 886 mm/624 mm
Rear Shoulder/Hip Room: 1,435 mm/1,313 mm

The 2021 Gladiator provides the same spacious cabin on all trims, but you need to upgrade to the Double Cab design on the Toyota to get a five-person capacity. Taller Jeep passengers can also enjoy 1,087 mm of headroom in both the front and rear and significantly larger seats in the back row. 

Plus, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator is an exceptionally versatile pick-up truck, and the 60/40 split-folding rear seat allows for multiple passenger-and-cargo configurations. Storage solutions include a behind-the-bench bin, a full-length centre console, and a special tray to contain loose materials. 

Contact our Calgary dealership today to learn more about the 2021 Jeep Gladiator’s spacious interior. We will also assist you in scheduling a test drive so that you can see the layout first-hand.

2021 Jeep Gladiator Overland vs 2021 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 6A: Which Has More Power in Calgary?

(Posted on Jun 16, 2021 at 11:08AM by Josh Lew)
<a href="[%2CJeep%2CGladiator%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/2021_jeep_gladiator_towing.jpg"alt="A 2021 Jeep Gladiator with a red body, towing a boat next to a lake and forest"/></a>The engine is one of the most important considerations when purchasing a pick-up truck. Buyers typically want something powerful enough to handle hauling tasks and provide performance as needed. 

The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Overland and 2021 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 6A are both capable trucks with similar specs on paper - but which performs better in the real world?

2021 Jeep Gladiator Overland

: 3.6L Pentastar V6
Horsepower: 285
Torque: 260 lb-ft.

2021 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 6A

: 3.5L V6 DOHC
Horsepower: 278
Torque: 265 lb-ft.

Despite being slightly larger and offering more strength, the Gladiator shines in terms of efficiency. Its two-step Variable Valve Lift System is specifically designed to remain in low-power mode until you need the full complement of muscle. As a result, the Jeep has a fuel economy rating of 10.4 L/100 km on the highway (compared to the 10.5 L/100 km offered by the Toyota Tacoma). 

Additionally, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator Overland utilizes Command Trac 4x4, which divides torque equally between the front and rear axles. This system is also capable of performing a smooth shift from two to four-wheel drive at speeds up to 72 km/h.
