Comparing the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Against the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Near Waynesboro, PA

February 4th, 2020 by

Off-roading is an activity that shouldn’t be taken lightly, while many vehicles may do a decent job on simple trails, many can be overwhelmed quite quickly by the challenges. Fortunately, at Buchanan Auto Park our team of Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep® dealers understand the importance of off-road prowess, especially in pickup trucks.

As one of the leading providers for Jeep brand vehicles in Waynesboro, PA, we know a lot about what it takes to make a great off-road pickup truck, and at the top of our recommendation list is the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. The Jeep Gladiator is a pickup that handles well on almost any terrain thanks to a combination of great gear and a solid engine. The base engine of the Jeep Gladiator is a 285 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 that is responsible for 260 lb-ft worth of torque. A 4×4 drivetrain can be found on every model, and with the body design of the ever-rugged Jeep Wrangler, the Jeep Gladiator should have no problem navigating rough terrain. Throw in a nice set of off-road tires, Dana 44 solid axles, coil springs, and decent ride height and you have a truly capable pickup.

The 2020 Honda Ridgeline exists in a completely different avenue than the Jeep Gladiator. For starters, the 280 horsepower-3.5-liter V6 engine is less powerful than the one offered in the Jeep pickup truck. Every model is built with a unibody design, which is harmful to its off-road capability. While you can get an all-wheel-drivetrain on the Honda Ridgeline a front-wheel version is standard and is less than stellar when taking on the trail. Throw in a low-profile and a rather low-range gearbox, and you have a pickup that is better suited for pavement than dirt.

If you’re hoping to check out the all-terrain new 2020 Jeep Gladiator you certainly can at Buchanan Auto Park. Our dealers will showcase this great 4×4 pickup in full, and help you navigate through the car buying process with simplistic ease.
