2020 Toyota 4Runner vs. Its Competition

2020 Toyota 4Runner
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

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.
