Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Toyota 4Runner: Power and Capability

You'll get options with the new Grand Cherokee. It offers four available engines, so you can personalize the output to suit your needs. The new Toyota 4Runner only offers one engine. The Grand Cherokee has the power advantage, too. Its 3.6L Pentastar® V6 kicks out 295 horsepower. The 4.0L V6 of the 4Runner only generates 270 horsepower.

If you're planning a camping excursion and need some extra gear, the Jeep Grand Cherokee can also tow up to 7,200 pounds! The 4Runner, on the other hand, is maxed out at just 5,000 pounds!

When it comes to all-terrain capability, both new SUVs offer part- and full-time 4-wheel drive systems. They also offer traction management systems that will let you fine-tune their performance to suit the path that lies before you!

Interior Versatility

Both the 2020 Grand Cherokee and the 2020 4Runner have plenty of room for passengers, so you can bring all your friends along on the next journey. Adding to that, they offer comfort amenities to keep everyone relaxed on journeys long and short. You'll get to sink into leather-trimmed seats and adjust the available heated settings to keep you cozy.

The folks in the back will have more room to stretch out in the Grand Cherokee. It has 39.2 inches of headroom and 38.6 inches of legroom in the second-row seats. The Toyota 4Runner only offers 38.6 inches of headroom and 32.9 inches of legroom for second-row riders!

Both SUVs can keep you connected on the go with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. Your favorite tunes will sound even better in the Jeep Grand Cherokee thanks to its available Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System, which includes 19 speakers. The Premium Audio system of the 4Runner only features 15 speakers.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Toyota 4Runner: Innovative Safety Features

You'll have peace of mind behind the wheel of both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Toyota 4Runner. They come with a wide range of safety and driver assistance features. They both offer a similar Forward Collision Warning system, which may help stop the vehicle if it detects a collision.

You'll only find the peace of mind that comes with Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Path Detection on the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Whether you're backing out of a tight spot or cruising down the highway, they'll look out for the vehicles you can't see.

Out of these two SUVs, only the Grand Cherokee will park itself! Once the available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist identifies an open spot it can steer itself right in! All you have to do is control the accelerator and the brake!

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Toyota 4Runner: Time to Decide!

While both SUVs put on a good show, it's clear to see that the Jeep Grand Cherokee is our winner! It has the power, space, and advanced features you need for every journey in Shorewood, Joliet, and Naperville.
