So, will the Wrangler or 4Runner be the right choice for your lifestyle?
That’s what the team at Dallas Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is here to help you figure out. Check out our comparison below to see how these two SUVs measure up in the categories of powertrain specs and outdoor readiness. Then, contact our team to test drive your top pick!
If you’re going to be hitting the throttle over a rocky trail, then you need an engine that responds with enough power to get things moving. That’s why we love that both the Wrangler and 4Runner come standard with a 270-horsepower engine. Check out their specs in the table below:
|2021 Jeep Wrangler||2021 Toyota 4Runner|
|Standard Engine||2.0L turbocharged I-4 with ESS||4.0L V6|
|Horsepower/Torque||270 horsepower/295 lb-ft of torque||270 horsepower/278 lb-ft of torque|
|Available Engine||3.6L Pentastar® V6 with Etorque or ESS||N/A|
|Horsepower/Torque||285 horsepower/260 lb-ft of torque||N/A|
While both SUVs start out on even footing, only the Wrangler lets you kick it up a notch with its available 285-horsepower 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with either eTorque or Engine Start-Stop technology or an available 3.0L EcoDiesel engine. Unfortunately, the 4Runner only has one engine option.
The Jeep Wrangler continues to provide more powertrain versatility when we look at the transmission options. The Jeep SUV lets you take complete control with a 6-speed manual transmission or enjoy smooth cruising with the available 8-speed automatic transmission.
The Toyota SUV only comes with a 5-speed automatic transmission. With its limited upper gears, this 5-speed transmission also provides a lower fuel economy overall than the Wrangler.
Now, let’s get to the good stuff and answer the question we know you’re asking: How do the Jeep Wrangler and Toyota 4Runner handle the great outdoors?
We can tell you that they handle it well! Both feature strong, stable body styles that are relatively sturdy and resistant to rollover. They also have impressive ground clearances that make crawling over rocks and wading through water a breeze:
One thing we noticed, however, is that the Wrangler features a body style that seems to get you even closer to the great outdoors than the 4Runner. For example, the Jeep has removable doors and a fold-down windshield.
It also lets you choose between three different convertible roof styles: Sunrider® soft top, Freedom Top® modular hardtop, and Sky One-Touch™ Power Top.
With just an available single-pane sunroof, drivers inside the Toyota 4Runner may feel more cooped up behind the wheel than those with the top down on their Jeep Wrangler.
Now that you’ve compared the Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner, which one will you take out on the trail? If you’re a fan of what the Jeep can offer your drives around Dallas, Garland, and Arlington, Texas, the team at Dallas CDJR can put you behind the wheel.
