Jeep Wrangler vs Toyota 4Runner

As a daring explorer, you know the importance of having the right equipment by your side. You wouldn’t summit a mountain without the right hiking boots or go rock climbing without the proper harness, so make sure you’re off-roading in the right SUV as well.

Two models that are well-known to explorers around Worcester, Auburn, and Shrewsbury, MA, are the 2023 Jeep Wrangler and Toyota 4Runner. To help you find the best one for your daring escapes, the team at Harr Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) put these two SUVs to the test.

Built to Roam Far and Wide

When it comes to sailing over rocks and boulders in your path, you’ll want a vehicle with a high stance that allows you to cruise over these obstacles with ease. The Toyota 4Runner boasts a ground clearance of 9.6 inches to make tackling bumpy roads a breeze.

If you really want to traverse some steep terrain, though, consider the best-in-class 12.9 inches of ground clearance the 2023 Jeep Wrangler has to offer. The additional height of this SUV allows for impressive water fording as well, so nothing will stand in your path.

Venture Off the Beaten Path

In addition to being crafted for adventure, the 2023 Jeep Wrangler and the Toyota 4Runner are equipped with drivetrains that allow you to tackle some extreme trail conditions. With the Wrangler, you’ll have your choice of the following 4-wheel drive (4WD) systems…

  • Command-Trac® 4×4 system: Divides torque evenly between the front and rear axles for a commanding performance through a range of weather conditions.
  • Selec-Trac® full-time 4×4 system: Provides optimal and continuous traction through a range of conditions, monitoring when to switch between 2- and 4-wheel drive.
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4 system: An extreme system with a 4:1 low-gear ratio for smooth rock crawls for extreme drives.

While the 4Runner also offers 4WD, there’s only a part- and a full-time system available, so you won’t have as many options to curate your traction and control your specific adventure needs.

Unique Exterior Styling

As you jet down wooded trails and cruise across sandy terrain, you’ll be able to feel the wind in your hair thanks to the unique open-air exterior of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler. Choose from the following three removable tops…

  • Zipperless Sunrider® Soft Top: This standard top makes use of waterproof cloth and glides open for easy removal.
  • Freedom Top® Three-Piece Hardtop: Remove the two front panels on this available top to create a skylight or easily take off all three pieces for the full open-air experience.
  • Sky One-Touch® Power Top: Just one press of a button will remove this top to let in the sunshine.

In addition to taking off the top, you can also fold down the windshield and remove the doors to invite the wilds of the great outdoors into your cabin.

The Toyota 4Runner does offer a power moonroof to let in some sunshine, but it’s nowhere near comparable to the open-air experience the Wrangler provides.
