Are you looking for a reliable, capable, and powerful midsize pickup truck that can double up as your family vehicle? You can consider putting your money on two options – the 2022 Jeep Gladiator and the 2022 Toyota Tacoma. Both these midsize trucks have been ruling the segment for years, and drivers in Oregon and Southwest Washington swear by them regarding reliability and price-to-performance ratio. However, if you were to choose just one, we would recommend the 2022 Jeep Gladiator sheerly because of its powerful 3.6-liter V-6 engine and the rugged, iconic Jeep brand styling. In this comparison review, Lum's Auto Center Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM in Warrenton OR compares the 2022 Jeep Gladiator vs. the 2022 Toyota Tacoma to see which pickup truck offers the better value proposition. So, jump right in.

As you can see from the comparison table above, the 2022 Jeep Gladiator dominates the power department with its standard 3.6L V-6 engine that makes 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. And although the 2022 Toyota Tacoma offers another powerful engine option with its 278-hp producing 3.5L V6, it still cannot match the Jeep's horsepower.
The Gladiator also offers a more spacious interior with seating for up to five passengers and a larger 103 cubic feet of passenger room than Toyota Tacoma's 100.1 cubic feet. Both the midsize SUVs come with 6-speed manual transmissions; however, the Gladiator offers it as standard while it is optional with the Tacoma.
The 2022 Jeep Gladiator also outclasses the 2022 Toyota Tacoma by offering an impressive 7,650 pounds maximum towing capacity and 1,700 pounds of payload capacity.
With its powerful standard V6 powertrain and impressive utility and towing capabilities, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler emerges as the winner in this comparison and has a better value proposition overall.
