2021 Jeep Gladiator videos

SPEAKER 1: Here we have two of the most hardcore offroad mid-sized trucks on the market. SPEAKER 2: Stop, stop. SPEAKER 1: The Tacoma TRD Pro, and the Gladiator Rubicon. We're going to hook them together and see which one pulls the other. We here at Edmunds test over 300 cars and trucks every single year. SPEAKER 2: But what you're about to see isn't one of those tests. SPEAKER 1: Now tug of wars have become popular lately, but if you think this is solid consumer advice, you are sadly mistaken. SPEAKER 2: It's pure ridiculousness. To quote Sigourney Weaver from Galaxy Quest, it's my job. It's stupid, but I'm going to do it. SPEAKER 1: Let's do it. SPEAKER 2: Let's do it. SPEAKER 1: Theoretically a tug of war is a simple contest to see who's strongest. When it comes to vehicles, it's not so easy. Differences in tires, the amount of weight pressing down on the rear axle, the surface itself, how much torque there is, what the gearing is in the axles. None of these things are really the same, so it's hard to really have a fair competition. For the first test we're running in 4 High. I am ready. Both trucks will have traction and stability control disabled. SPEAKER 2: I'm ready. SPEAKER 1: We're not running in 4 Low, because we don't want to break anything. And we just want to have some fun. SPEAKER 2: 3, 2, 1. Go. [ENGINES ROAR] SPEAKER 1: This is great. This is, you know what? SPEAKER 2: Stop. Stop. I don't know what's going on, but it's not good for the transmissions. The wheels aren't turning at all. And nobody is making any ground. I wonder if we should put it in two wheel drive mode. SPEAKER 1: We're not sure exactly what happened, but it seemed that traction control wasn't really off. So in this next round, we're leaving them in two wheel drive. That ought to show a difference. I'm in two wheel drive. SPEAKER 2: So am I. But I need to turn off traction control, and I can't find the button. SPEAKER 1: Who thought acting like an idiot would take so much time? SPEAKER 2: Ready? SPEAKER 1: Ready. SPEAKER 2: Ready. 3, 2, 1. Go. [ENGINES ROAR] SPEAKER 1: Uh-oh, stalemate. Stalemate. That's great. Everybody loses. All right, that's enough, that's enough. SPEAKER 2: Everything. SPEAKER 1: We go back to the stick? That's what we learned. That's the lesson we learned. Or didn't. [LAUGHTER] That's a nice little sandcastle you made. What did you do? Oh, that's-- I hope you brought some sand rails. SPEAKER 2: I think I have grippier tires. Look at, they just dug a hole. Yeah, I think a dry lake bed is not a good place for this. SPEAKER 1: No, it's not. We should have probably done this in an Arby's parking lot. SPEAKER 2: Yeah, I think we're going to have to fill this in. SPEAKER 1: I think so. SPEAKER 2: Yeah, they won't be they won't be happy with us. We should probably leave that stake here, too. SPEAKER 1: I want to go home. SPEAKER 2: Yeah, I think so. SPEAKER 1: Let's go home. SPEAKER 2: Let's see if I can get out. That'll be good. If we unhook and I put everything in four wheel drive, do you think I can drive out? SPEAKER 1: You're on your own. I'm fine. SPEAKER 2: Wow. You should see the left rear. Its sitting on the frame. I just dug a hole. All right, see if I can get myself out of the hole that I dug. So I'm going to put it in 4 High. Maybe I should put it in 4 Low. All right, let's see if I can get out. See if I can get myself out of this mess. [LAUGHING] SPEAKER 1: Look at that. SPEAKER 2: You guys are laughing. SPEAKER 1: This hole's really deep. [LAUGHING] SPEAKER 2: That one's just sitting there. SPEAKER 1: We did good work. SPEAKER 2: I did all the work. SPEAKER 1: You did. SPEAKER 2: All right, let's fill this. SPEAKER 1: Seriously, we got to fill this. No one will notice, right? SPEAKER 2: Now. SPEAKER 1: Good. Fill the hole. SPEAKER 2: Nothing to see here. SPEAKER 1: Nope, nothing happened. SPEAKER 2: Sorry about your radio. You got to do it anyway. SPEAKER 1: I think we're good. SPEAKER 3: So what did we learn? SPEAKER 2: I don't know. What did we learn here? SPEAKER 1: Oh, we learned that your Jeep would rather dig a hole than tow a Tacoma. SPEAKER 2: Yeah, I dig this Jeep. SPEAKER 1: Yeah. Jesus. Well, that was a lot of fun.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Jeep Gladiator?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
