The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited VS The Toyota 4Runner

If you are like most drivers in the Holland area you do some research before pulling the trigger on a new car, truck or SUV. Just like how you research where you want to go hiking before you set out on a weekend adventure. But sometimes there can be a lot of research involved in determining what SUV is best for you and can handle your wildest adventures. Preferred Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Grand Haven wants to help our customers get the information they need quickly so they can get to the best part of shopping for a new car. Coming down to the dealership for a test drive. So today we are comparing the Toyota 4Runner to the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Off-Road Capability

If the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Toyota 4Runner have made your list of possible vehicles you are most likely a person who enjoys the great outdoors and needs a vehicle that can get you there. And this is one area that the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited pulls way ahead of the Toyota 4Runner. The Jeep Wrangler is the original off-road vehicle with 75 years of experience and has also been tested on the toughest terrain on Earth. The Toyota 4Runner has off-road capabilities, but not to the same level as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

  The 4Runner features Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, Part-time 4WD with Active Traction Control, Electronically controlled locking rear differential, Multi-terrain Select and Crawl Control, and 9.6 inches of ground clearance on select TDR Off-Road trim levels

Every Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a 4X4 vehicle with 30 inches of water fording ability, an 18.5 ft. turning radius to make tight turns easy, and Best-in-Class Ground Clearance with 10.1 inches. Every Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is built with 4X4 capabilities in mind. Starting with a fully boxed frame for strength, flexibility, and durability as well as mechanical, electronic, or brake-assisted differentials to help maximize power delivery for increased traction. So no matter the surface the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has the traction needed to for all kinds of off-road challenges. Select Jeep Wrangler Unlimited editions and trim levels feature Tru-Lok Locking Differentials and Sway Bar Disconnect System for enhanced off-road performance and ability.

Customizable Style

Drivers like options. You want a vehicle that is as unique as you. So if you like options the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has almost too many to choose from with 13 different Wranglers available. The Toyota 4Runner has six different trim levels available, but only three are equipped with the off-road capabilities a true explorer needs. Not only do you have 13 different Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to choose from, the Jeep Wrangler is the only no roof no door SUV on the road. The Toyota 4Runner only offers a sunroof on select models.



In the end, it all comes down to how much will either vehicle cost you and again this is another area where the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited outshines the Toyota 4Runner. The Toyota 4Runner has a starting MSRP of $34,410 for the base level trim. While the well-equipped 4Runner TRD Off-Road starts at $37,535. Which is almost $10,000 more than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that starts at $27,895 and every trim level is well-equipped.
