Jeep Gladiator vs Ford F-250? Yep!
There are not too many ways a heavy duty pickup and an off-road playtime pickup truck can compete – but we found a way. The Jeep Gladiator vs Ford F-250 TUG-OF-WAR!
Based on components from the Jeep Wrangler and Ram 1500, the Jeep Gladiator is smaller and less powerful than the Ford F-250. It’s no surprise, our F-250 has the beefy 7.3-liter gas engine and it’s a lot-lot-lot heavier.
Someone thought it would be a good idea for a tug-of-war based on the Jeep’s superior traction. Okay, it has beefier tires and a locking front diff – but can it make a dent in the brute force of the big Ford?
Watch for yourself and you’ll see what I mean. It’s still as entertaining as hell and you get to see something unique. New footage of behind-the-scenes filming and some of the fun we actually have during production.
Something fun here for just about everyone… unless you hate Jeeps and Fords.
The new Ford 7.3-liter V8 makes 430 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 475 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. It’s hooked up to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
