The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.6
5.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

An off-roader with controlled on-road manners, the 2021 Land Rover Defender is a roomier, more civilized alternative to a Jeep Wrangler. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is a hugely capable and cool throwback SUV with a modern price attached.
