2020 Toyota 4Runner vs. Its Competition

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an older design beginning to gray at its temples, but the breadth of its lineup is impressive.

For off-roaders, the Jeep Wrangler remains tops, but it’s not as comfortable on-road or as well-equipped with safety tech as the 4Runner.

The Toyota Tacoma is a close relative to the 4Runner, albeit with open-air utility some buyers may prefer.

Don’t discount the Subaru Outback, which is capable off-road and far more livable on-road than the 4Runner.

Finally, the Chevy Blazer is back, and while it’s not very rugged, it’s boldly styled.
