For decades, the Jeep has been the go-anywhere-do-anything explorer. This rough, tough, rugged machine is designed to cope with any situation, no matter how challenging. As the years have moved on, the Jeep has become more refined, with models that offer greater sophistication when it comes to technology, agility and nimble handling.
At Jeep UAE, the latest Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator models are hugely popular with our clients. That’s no surprise, as they’re two of the meanest off-roaders on the market. But which is better? Here is a quick look at both of these powerful 4x4 Jeep models.
Jeep Wrangler – A Passion for Adventure
Tried, tested and Trail Rated, the Jeep Wrangler is the epitome of 4x4 off-road cars. This beast of an off-roader is designed for adventures, and the 2023 Wrangler certainly hasn't lost its taste for exploring the great outdoors. The Wrangler is customizable so you can make it your own and create a vehicle that fits your personality. Its bold new styling blends sophisticated touches with retro-classic features. The result is a heritage vehicle that's been brought right up to date.
Powering the Wrangler is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that delivers up to 285hp and 352Nm of torque. A specialist Command-Trac® 4x4 system delivers torque to all four wheels, giving pin-sharp precision handling and evenly distributed power. When the ground starts to get rocky, a low-range gear specially designed for rock crawling will get you out of trouble.
Inside the cabin, the Jeep Wrangler is packed with technology, and embraces the iconic lifestyle statement that is always associated with Jeep. You might be off-roading, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. The Sport model comes with a contrasting black top, while other trims come with a body-colored top. The Jeep Freedom Top™ is fully detachable, giving you that sense of freedom as you tackle the next dune. An advanced UConnect 8.4” infotainment display puts all the controls at your fingertips.
It’s quite clear that the legend of the Jeep Wrangler lives on, and the 2023 Wrangler is as determined to have fun on the road less travelled as its predecessors.
Jeep Gladiator – A Powerhouse of an Off-Roader
The Jeep Gladiator is determined to push the limits of off-road capabilities and leave the competition in its dust. This rugged 4x4 is designed to make light work of the mightiest dune, but remains a stylish automotive icon that looks good in any situation.
The Jeep Gladiator is a car where you create your own adventures, safe in the knowledge that your vehicle can withstand almost anything the scenery can throw at it. Powered by the proven 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, it can haul up to 7,650kg and delivers 285hp. Hit that off-Road button in the cab and the throttle, transmission shift points and traction control will all optimize for off-road terrain, including low-speed rock crawling. Heavy-duty Dana® axles ensure that the drive can take on the toughest rocky path without fear of breaking. If you do get into trouble, heavy-duty forged front and rear tow hooks can get you back on the trail again.
You can really get closer to the environment in a Gladiator too, as it’s the only pick-up with a fold-down windshield, removable doors and open-top options to give you a real sense of freedom. But as we said earlier, rugged doesn't mean uncomfortable, as the plush seats and plentiful technology demonstrate.
