Design-wise, both are conventional-looking SUVs and with boxy designs. But the design of the Jeep Meridian feels more assuring, which is in line with some of the American SUVs. The exterior of the Gloster does exude muscles, and if imaginations are stretched, at times might also resemble a Prado. However, one of the key differences between the SUVs lies in the fact that the Gloster sits on a body-on-frame chassis, but the Meridian gets a Unibody chassis.

Width 1,698 mm 1,926 mm
Height 1,859 1,867 mm
