2021 Toyota 4Runner vs. Its Competition

2021 Toyota 4Runner Trail
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Look out! The new Ford Bronco will arrive this year to challenge the Toyota 4Runner for shoppers looking for tough SUVs.

The Jeep Wrangler is the king (or queen) of that hill, for now, and we imagine the Venn diagram of 4Runner and Wrangler fans has considerable overlap.

The Outback and Passport are more practical SUVs (and wagons) with more comfortable interiors—even if they may not be able to scale a boulder.

The Tacoma and 4Runner aren’t related, but do share similar mindsets; the Tacoma has an open bed in the back too.
