Tug of war, Jeep Gladiator and Ford F-250 pickups involvedJanuary 1, 2020
Prices for both American pickups start at $ 55,000. Ford’s truck can offer more towing options as well as better payload, while a Jeep is attractive in terms of the number of useful options.
Here’s the secret to winning the tug of war competition: the one with the highest torque and the one who weighs the most will win this contest. This time, the guys from the YouTube channel The Fast Lane Truck decided to stage a competition between the mid-size Jeep Gladiator pickup in the powerful Rubicon version and the full-size Ford F-250. In fact, the winner of this competition should be obvious.
There is no doubt that the F-250 is the more capable, in terms of affordable towing capacity, car of the two presented. It can tow really heavy weights and has a higher payload. Nevertheless, a car from Ford can offer its owner a much smaller number of various useful functions.
Returning to the tug of war, the big F-250 absolutely dominates this competition. He can pull the Gladiator even when the Jeep driver holds the brakes.
The hefty F-250 is powered by Ford’s new 7.3-liter V8 engine, which delivers 430 horsepower and 644 Nm. It is connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Well, the less monstrous Jeep Gladiator has a 3.6-liter V6 rated at 285 hp. (353 Nm), which works with an eight-speed “automatic”.
Given that the minimum price for both of these trucks is around $ 55,000, your choice depends on what you need from the pickup. If the ability to work as a workhorse is a top priority, then the F-250 is the obvious choice. However, if you are willing to compromise on towing capacity and payload, then the smaller Gladiator has features that Ford cannot offer.
