Thrilling and Efficient Performances

Jeep Wrangler Off-RoadingWhether you’re powering down the highway on the way to you next exciting adventure or tackling your weekday commute, you SUV should create a thrilling and enjoyable experience. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine on the Jeep Wrangler does just that, outputting 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Additionally, the engine in the Wrangler provides an EPA-estimated 25 MPG on the highway, to help you travel long distances before needing to refuel. Your next road trip might have some extra gas station stops with the 4Runner though, since it only provides an EPA-estimated 20 MPG on the highway.

Jeep Wrangler vs Toyota 4Runner: Exterior Comparison

Since its creation, the Wrangler has been known for its customizable exterior. This SUV offers three top options: Sunrider® Soft Top, Freedom Top® Modular Hardtop, and Sky One-Touch™ Power Top. However, if you’re looking for a truly unique ride, take off the top entirely, fold-down the windshield, and remove the doors for an open-air experience.

While the Toyota 4Runner does offer an available power moonroof to help you let in some sunlight, this customized exterior is exclusive to the Wrangler. So, if you’re interested in becoming one with your surroundings through the open-air experience, you’ll want to get behind the wheel of the Jeep Wrangler.

Stay Entertained Throughout the Ride

Jeep Wrangler InteriorWhen you’re exploring the open road in your new SUV, you’ll want an infotainment system to help you enjoy the ride more as well as provide navigation to get to your intended destination safely. The available 8.4-inch Uconnect® 4C NAV display in the Wrangler meets this demand offering Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration to provide access to your music library along with premium navigation to provide you with the quickest route.

The Toyota 4Runner offers an entertainment display with available navigation as well, however, this system is significantly smaller at only 6.1 inches. Additionally, this infotainment display doesn’t have either Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ integration, so you may not be able to have the customized listening experience you desire.
