Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Toyota 4Runner

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When comparing the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2017 Toyota 4Runner, the first thing to catch the eye is the exterior design. While the Toyota 4Runner features a boxier, angled exterior, the Jeep Grand Cherokee stands out with its sleek, smooth edges and defining grill. But these SUVs aren't all style-they have the power to back it up, too. With 293 @ 6400 horsepower, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee just edges out the 2017 Toyota 4Runner, and with the flexibility of the 8-Speed Shiftable Automatic Transmission versus the Toyota 4Runner's 5-Speed, the Jeep Grand Cherokee kicks power and control up a notch above the Toyota 4Runner. When pairing classic design with rugged automotive strength, the Jeep Grand Cherokee comes out on top.

Both vehicles, though built to handle the toughest terrain, must still be able to take on any drive you put it through comfortably and affordably. With traditional 5 passenger seating, the Toyota 4Runner and Jeep Grand Cherokee have room to fit the entire family-but when searching for more space, turn to the Jeep Grand Cherokee to fit the extra cargo. And with blind spot monitoring and forward collision warning and crash mitigation, the Jeep Grand Cherokee goes the extra mile to keep everyone inside safe, as opposed to the standard brake assist offered by the Toyota 4Runner. Most importantly, the Jeep Grand Cherokee does all of this while saving you money at the pump-with a combined MPG of 21 against the Toyota 4Runner's 18 MPG, save cash in the long term by spending less on your gas mileage.
