Outside, the two variants are separated by more prominent use of black plastic in the lower-spec Sport, as well as different finishes for the wheels. The Rubicon also gets steel bumpers, rock rails, and skid plates. While the Rubicon is the better-equipped of the two, both carry the same rugged design and massive frame that makes the Gladiator one of the toughest-looking models in its segment. The vehicle also boasts a five-foot truck bed, as well as 60/40 rear seats that can be folded down flat.
Inside, the cabin flaunts a no-frills vibe with some playful use of color. The Rubicon gets an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system (which is rubberized for water resistance) with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and an Alpine sound setup, while the Sport gets a smaller five-inch screen. Off-road goodies include Off-Road Plus Mode, Electronic Sway Bar Disconnect, Selec-Speed Control, a Fox suspension setup, and traction control.
