2022 Toyota 4Runner vs. Its Competition

2022 Toyota 4Runner TRD Sport
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

When it comes to four-wheeling fun, the 4Runner is bested by the Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco.

But those two models are even more expensive when comparably equipped, and both are seriously compromised as daily drivers.

Most 4Runner owners will find plenty of capability in a Subaru Outback or a Jeep Grand Cherokee, two models that deliver impressive rough-road comfort and great in-town handling.

The Honda Passport is an underrated, often discounted choice that delivers a dose of dirt-road readiness in exchange for car-like handling.
