2021 Ford Bronco vs. 2020 Toyota 4Runner: Compare SUVs

The 2021 Ford Bronco and 2020 Toyota 4Runner represent opposite ends of the off-road SUV spectrum. Both are qualified to bounce over boulders, cross rivers and cross town to bus the family around. But the Bronco epitomizes all that’s new and the 4Runner resigns itself to the opposite direction.

With its removable hard- or soft-top roof, two- or four-door variants with removable doors, standard four-wheel drive, and a standard manual transmission, the 2021 Ford Bronco aims to knock the Jeep Wrangler off its unchallenged perch atop the off-road hill. But the 2020 Toyota 4Runner has a few tricks the Bronco can’t match, such as a naturally aspirated V-6, a 5,000-pound towing capacity, seating for up to seven, and an old familiar feeling.

5.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Ford Bronco SUV transforms the burden of the past into a modern marvel. The 2020 Toyota 4Runner is a solid choice for weekend warriors made better this year thanks to more safety gear, but pavement-pounders should look elsewhere.
