2016 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Toyota 4Runner, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Toyota 4Runner and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota 4Runner, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Toyota 4Runner will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Toyota 4Runner will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Toyota 4Runner is about the same width as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. When looking at overall length, the Toyota 4Runner takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Toyota 4Runner transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Handling
The Toyota 4Runner has the same turning radius as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the Jeep Grand Cherokee for pulling heavy loads. The Toyota 4Runner has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
The Toyota 4Runner offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Toyota 4Runner, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Warranty
The Toyota 4Runner comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
