It's Time for Round 2 in the SVG March Madness Showdown!

It's Time for Round 2 in the March Madness Showdown!

Round 1 is done, and it’s time to let the Round 1 winners battle it out in Round 2  to see who will advance to Round 3.

Round 2, Game 1 sees the Jeep Gladiator facing the GMC Sierra. The Gladiator came out swinging in Round 1, demolishing its competition, the Ram 1500, by a ratio of 2 to 1! Meanwhile, the Sierra barely squeaked out a victory over the Chevy Silverado. Is the Gladiator up to the challenge again? Before you make a choice, let’s compare some specs of the two trucks (we compared the Gladiator with a Sierra outfitted with options that are the most comparable to the Gladiator). It should be noted that the Gladiator was put into production to compete in the mid-size truck class which includes the Chevy Colorado, the Toyota Tacoma, the GMC Canyon, the Honda Ridgeline, the Ford Ranger, and the Nissan Frontier; the GMC Sierra is a full-size truck and not considered a direct competitor in market.

Jeep has yet to confirm gas mileage ratings on the Gladiator, so we’ve purposely left that comparison out.
