New Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Toyota 4Runner

See How the Jeep Grand Cherokee Compares to the Toyota 4Runner

The new Toyota 4Runner is popular among SUV consumers, and rightfully so because it delivers a splendid driving experience. However, our team at Scap Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram favors the new Jeep Grand Cherokee over its competitor and with good reason. Though both models make formidable opponents, our comparison below demonstrates how the Jeep surpasses the Toyota in many categories, which is why we recommend it to drivers like you in Fairfield, Connecticut.

Jeep Grand Cherokee VS. Toyota 4Runner*

Powerful: The new Jeep Grand Cherokee promises an exhilarating ride thanks to its impressive engineering. With a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine and an Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission as the main components of its powertrain, it boasts substantial strength. In fact, it produces up to 295 horsepower at maximum output. The mechanical equivalent of the new Toyota 4Runner can hardly compete, offering only 270 horsepower.

Capable: Put in action, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee exceeds expectations. At peak performance, it can tow a maximum of 6,200 pounds which is exactly 1,200 more pounds than the towing capacity of the new Toyota 4Runner. It can even handle itself better both on and off the road as well thanks to the Base Selec-Terrain™ and Quadra-Trac® Active On Demand 4WD systems that are built into it. Backed by these standard technologies, it can trek through harsh conditions like rain or snow with ease.

Efficient: The new Jeep Grand Cherokee is not just strong. It is quite efficient too because it has the support of an Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission that optimizes the use of fuel. It can sustain as much as 18 city and 25 highway MPG which is significantly better than the 17 city and 20 highway MPG ratings of the new 4Runner. Not to mention, its tank can hold 1.6 more gallons of fuel than its rival, increasing your driving range.

Spacious: Space is a vital characteristic of SUVs, which is why the new Jeep Grand Cherokee is designed to offer you ample room. While its maximum cargo volume is slightly smaller than the new Toyota 4Runner, its total interior volume 105.4 cubic feet is much larger-8.1 cubic feet, to be exact. In other words, its cabin is roomier for drivers and passengers. Rest assured, its 60/40-split fold rear seats makes the layout adaptable so you can fit more luggage if you so prefer.

Exclusive: On top of its capability and design, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee gives the new Toyota 4Runner a run for its money because of the high-tech features that come with it. A new, 7-inch Uconnect® 4 System is included as a standard, expanding the scope of accessibility to information and entertainment. With a subscription to Uconnect® Access, you can even track your vehicle specs like G-force and speed! To say that driving this Jeep SUV is fun is clearly an understatement.
