2021 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2021 Toyota 4Runner: Compare SUVs

Off-roading and adventure seeking is a lifestyle. Not everyone cares, but those who do inevitably consider the Toyota 4Runner and Jeep Wrangler as their overlander of choice. The decision becomes a crossroads.

These two legendary icons created cult followings long before Tesla made such a thing, but for very different reasons. The 4Runner’s known for being ridiculously reliable while the Wrangler is infinitely customizable and can be a boulder-basher or sun chaser with removable doors and roof.
