When you head out from Abingdon to go off road, you know that both Jeep and Toyota come correct with their more adventurous vehicles. However, Jeep is the standard in off-roading for a reason and when you do the math, the higher HP, torque, towing, and payload of the Jeep Gladiator make it a bolder, more fully featured off-road pickup. Want to learn more about whether a Gladiator or Tacoma should be in your Wytheville driveway? Blue Ridge CDJR is proud to be your Jeep team!
