Compare the 2020 Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner and you'll quickly find that these two SUVs are always up for adventure. That adventure may be to a place you've been before, but the Wrangler and 4Runner are always prepared for unexpected Ithaca, Binghamton, and Cortland, NY, travels.

Perhaps you'll even find yourself off the pavement in a place you've never been. Maguire Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT (CDJRF) is here to help you understand the Wrangler and 4Runner and their offerings.

Wrangler vs 4Runner: Performance and Efficiency

The Jeep Wrangler carries a standard Pentastar® V6 engine. This engine provides low-end torque when you need it most, as well as up to 285 horsepower. The Toyota 4Runner, on the other hand, comes with a 4.0L V6 engine that makes only 270 horsepower, a bit behind what the Jeep Wrangler is capable of.

It's also worth noting the large fuel economy disparity between these two SUVs. When the Wrangler is equipped with the V6 engine, it gets up to an EPA-estimated 19 city/22 highway MPG. The Toyota 4Runner will have you visiting the gas station more often as it gets just an EPA-estimated 16 city/19 highway MPG. When you want a powerful and fuel-efficient ride, it's time to turn your attention to the Jeep Wrangler.

Jeep Wrangler vs Toyota 4Runner: Unique Features

Each SUV carries unique features that make it special. In the case of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler, you may know where we're going with this. If you've seen a Wrangler on the roads over the years, you've likely seen other free spirits with the top down and the doors off, enjoying the fresh air. The Wrangler is available in both 2- and 4-door options, and yes, the available removable rear doors give you the flexibility to enjoy the roads with no limitations. You won't find this kind of feature in the 4Runner.

If you're bringing your phone along for the ride, you don't have to leave it in your pocket. In both the Wrangler and 4Runner, you'll find Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. Simply plug your smartphone in using the USB port, and your phone features and apps will appear right on the car's touchscreen. Access music, use your favorite navigation app, or text a friend to let them know you're on the way.

Wrangler vs 4Runner: Off-Roading

If you do choose to take these cars off the pavement, you're sure to enjoy the ride in both. However, it's clear that the Wrangler offers more capability in the dirt and mud than the Toyota 4Runner. That's thanks to the available Wrangler Rubicon trim, which provides 33-inch All-Terrain tires, a feature not available on the 4Runner.

The Wrangler's Electronic Sway Bar Disconnect feature allows you to disconnect the sway bar, allowing the front wheels to drop and compress. This provides better handling when going over tough terrain.

Jeep Wrangler vs Toyota 4Runner: Choose Your SUV

Now that you've had the chance to compare the 2020 Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner, you're likely ready for that test drive at Maguire CDJRF. The Wrangler makes its presence felt in Ithaca, Binghamton, and Cortland, New York.
