Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Toyota 4Runner. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner.

Convenience
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota 4Runner, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited or the Toyota 4Runner, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much higher than that for the Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much slimmer than the Toyota 4Runner, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota 4Runner.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Toyota 4Runner. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota 4Runner.
