Making sure the Jeep Gladiator will fit
Do you want to make sure that the Jeep Gladiator will fit into your garage? Don't be wary of the overall length of this pickup truck, especially if you have a garage that was built in the modern era. There will also be plenty of room to safely park this vehicle in a standard parking stall, with room to spare.
The standard dimensions that garages are built to are more than adequate for the new Jeep Gladiator. Garages must be a minimum of 20 feet deep, 12 feet long, and seven feet high. In addition, the garage door should be 9 feet wide.
Keep in mind that these dimensions are for a single-car garage. Multi-car garages would have the same depth and height but would be much wider.
No matter what you are parking in your garage, it's recommended to have at least 2 feet, 8 inches clearance from each side of the vehicle to the sidewalls. So if your garage space is also used for storage or a work area, keep those measurements in mind.
Are all Jeep Gladiators the same length?
All-new Jeep Gladiators are the same length. The Gladiator debuted in 2019, with the 2020 models going up for sale. The Jeep Gladiator has always had the same length as the new ones do today. No matter the model year or trim level, you can be sure that it will have an overall length of 218 inches.
Even though the different trim levels and years of the Jeep Gladiator have the same length, there are some variations in the height. By trim level, here are the full exterior dimensions of this pickup truck:
- Jeep Gladiator Sport is 218 inches long, 73.8 inches wide, and 75 inches tall.

How big is the truck bed on the Jeep Gladiator?
No matter the model year or trim level, you can expect the same dimensions for the truck bed on the Jeep Gladiator. The cargo bed measures 60.3 inches long, 56.8 inches wide (44.8 inches wide between the wheel housings), and 33.9 inches high.
Overall, this pickup truck has 35.5 cubic feet of storage space available in its bed. While the cargo bed is noticeably smaller than those of full-size pickup trucks, you'll still find that the Gladiator is capable of carrying a good amount of cargo.
Before you load anything into the bed of your Jeep Gladiator, pay mind to its payload capacity. This amount will vary based upon the selected trim level. It ranges from 1,105 pounds to 1,700 pounds and will be listed in your Gladiator owner's manual.
Is the Jeep Gladiator bigger than the Wrangler?
If you are also considering the Jeep Wrangler, familiarizing yourself with this vehicle's overall measurements is an excellent start in seeing if it is the right fit for the space you have available. If you are concerned about the Wrangler not fitting into the space you know is large enough for the Gladiator, you need not worry. The Jeep Wrangler is overall much smaller in dimensions than the Jeep Gladiator.
But knowing the Wrangler's measurements will still help determine how much room it will take up in your garage. Garages are, after all, used for more than just parking a vehicle. Garages are also great storage areas and workspaces. Knowing if the Wrangler will still allow for these other garage uses to take place is helpful information.
The Wrangler only slightly varies in its dimensions between trim levels. It has a range of 166.8 to 188.4 inches in length, a standard width of 73.8 inches, and a range of 73.6 to 74.5 inches in height.
Is the Jeep Gladiator a full-size truck?
The Jeep Gladiator is considered a mid-sized pickup truck. JD Power recently awarded this truck with their "Initial Quality Award for Mid-sized Pickups." Popular Mechanics awarded the new Jeep Gladiator "Mid-size Truck of the Year" in 2020. This pickup truck has been racking up other awards and has seen tremendous popularity growth among consumers and consumer advocates.
The two most popular types of pickup trucks among consumers are full-sized trucks and mid-sized trucks. There are several distinctions between these two classes, other than just their sizes. The engines in full-sized trucks are more powerful, although the overall power between the two classes is usually negligible.
Manufacturers might place smaller engines in the mid-sized models, but those models are lighter and don't require the same horsepower or torque to get up to speed.
A full-sized pickup truck will almost always have more towing capacity and can have a lot more payload onboard. They are built with more robust suspension systems and will typically have a larger wheelbase. The full-sized trucks will have a larger bed, as well as more room in the cab.
The new Jeep Gladiator is a popular option for those looking for a mid-sized pickup truck. This JD Power award-winning vehicle has excellent resale value and is one of the most durable trucks in its class. No matter what year or trim level you are considering, the overall length will be the same across all models and will fit neatly into your home's garage or parking space. Drive safe!
