2017 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2017 Jeep Wrangler: Compare Cars

The Toyota 4Runner and Jeep Wrangler are relics of another era—or you might simply want to call them survivors. They stand as rugged counterpoints to the high-riding, high-roof, ubiquitous all-wheel-drive passenger cars that are now commonly termed crossover utility vehicles. And for the most part, they favor proven mechanical hardware over electronics, and ground clearance and wheel articulation over handling stability and ride comfort.

The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is a unique off-roader bolstered by the freedom of open air driving. Its aging design is a throwback to the past, but it offers just enough contemporary features and modern amenities. With the 2016 Toyota 4Runner, you'll trade off a little refinement and on the road finesse for true SUV capability, off-road prowess, and unparalleled style.
