The 2021 Ford Bronco off-road SUV is new this year and the 2021 Toyota 4Runner isn’t. Both off-road SUVs can crawl over boulders, ford rivers, and ferry the family across town. After a 25-year absence, the Bronco epitomizes the latest, greatest features while the 4Runner, which was last redesigned for 2009, has an interior as dated as wood paneling.
Our TCC Rating favors the new, much like our culture, awarding the 2021 Ford Bronco a 7.0 out of 10. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner can’t keep pace with a TCC Rating of 5.2. Yet the aging 4Runner has been known to outrun automotive time. Ford leans into the future by offering more than 200 Bronco accessories from the factory to swap fender flares, change bumpers, add winches, and develop the Bronco as the owner develops off-road skill.
