2022 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2022 Toyota 4Runner

Choosing the right vehicle for off-road travel is a critical part of any off-road experience since having the right SUV for the terrain can be the difference between enjoying a weekend on the trails or getting stuck in the mud. At Village Chrysler, we stock the 2022 Jeep Wrangler in our new inventory, providing customers with an excellent SUV that's ready to tackle off-road terrain with ease. Visit us today and let us match you with the Wrangler trim level that has everything you need for your next off-road trip.

Interior & Exterior Design Comparison

You can find the Wrangler in either a two-door or four-door configuration, featuring a boxy design with rugged elements and accents. The Wrangler is designed with off-road worthiness in mind, and it can have a soft- or hard-top to match your desired preferences on your off-road adventures. Inside the cabin, you will find a durable interior that's easy to clean and has everything required to enjoy a comfortable and connected commute.

The 4Runner has slightly rugged elements for its exterior design, but it looks more like a traditional SUV since it has many similarities to other Toyota SUVs. To add some ruggedness to the design, you must opt for the optional TRD packages. Its cabin hosts a minimalistic approach for features, and it comes with adequate offerings for daily driving around town.

Off-Road Capability Comparison

The Wrangler is a true off-road machine, and it comes with everything needed to tackle challenging terrain with ease while also having the basics needed for daily driving. Its standard off-road equipment includes a four-wheel-drive system, skids plates protecting the vehicle off-road, sport bar, front and rear stabilizer bars, and Dana axles. To maximize off-road performance further, you can opt for higher trims with limited rear slip differential, rock protection sill rails, larger tires for off-roading, and more specialized four-wheel-drive systems.

On the other hand, the Toyota 4Runner is also an acceptable vehicle for light off-road travelling, but it's not quite as capable as the Wrangler in its standard form. Many packages are available to make the 4Runner more competitive off-road, featuring notable features such as Fox shock absorbers, skid plates, a full-time four-wheel-drive system, a locking rear differential, and multi-terrain select.

Engine Options & Performance Comparison

Performance and capability are endless with the Wrangler's many engine options, featuring as standard a 3.6-litre V6 Pentastar engine with ESS and a six-speed manual, allowing for output figures of 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard on the remaining engine options, including the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 with eTorque, 270-horsepower 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, 260-horsepower 3.0-litre EcoDiesel, and 470-horsepower 6.4-litre HEMI V8 engine.

Compared to the Wrangler's engine options, the 4Runner only has one, which is a 4.0-litre V6 engine that cranks out 270 horsepower. With such lower output from the Toyota engine, the Wrangler's standard V6 engine has considerably more performance. Pairing with the standard engine of the 4Runner is a five-speed automatic transmission, resulting in very high fuel consumption.

Technology Features Comparison

When it comes to technology features for daily driving, the Wrangler has various options to suit all needs and preferences. As standard, you can expect this Jeep model to have a 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth streaming audio, eight-speaker audio system, a media hub with audio inputs, and a 3.5-inch in-cluster display. Higher trims get the option between a 7-inch or an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, and you can upgrade the in-cluster display to a 7-inch customizable version starting with the Sport S trim.
