2017 Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner

Few vehicles out there offer you true trail-ready performance. However, the�2017 Jeep Wrangler�and the 2017 Toyota 4Runner are on point when it comes to their off-road ability. If you find yourself craving the world beyond the pavement, one of these SUVs may be right for you.

Interested vehicle seekers in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens can read on for the dirt on these adventure-primed travelers brought to you by Manhattan Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.

Wrangler vs. 4Runner: Power

Under the hoods of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler and the 2017 Toyota 4Runner, V6 engines purr. Despite both firing on six cylinders, the Jeep Wrangler drivers get the power edge.

With a standard 285 horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler is at home scaling rocks or accelerating on asphalt. With 15 fewer horsepower, the Toyota 4Runner's 270-horsepower engine doesn't feel nearly as mighty, but it still provides satisfactory power for around-the-town travel.

The Off-Road Prowess to Press On

The Jeep Wrangler is known as�the�off-road vehicle. Standardly equipped with your choice of two proven part-time 4x4 systems, and certified off-road equipment like skid plates and multitasking on-/off-road tires, its 2017 version certainly represents this reputation well.

Unlike the Toyota 4Runner that comes standard with rear-wheel drive, the Jeep Wrangler doesn't deny the fact that all of its buyers enjoy going off-road to some degree. Standard Command-Trac� four-wheel drive delivers even power to all four Wrangler wheels while the upper Rock-Trac� system brings superior performance with an impressive low gearing ratio. This system makes nearly any steep elevation climb a capable challenge with an end that's well within reach. �

When you move up the Toyota 4Runner's trim levels, gear that's on-par with some of the Jeep Wrangler's offerings can be added like part-time four-wheel drive and a locking rear differential. In general, though, the Jeep Wrangler's off-road portfolio offers more advanced equipment. �

Comfort and Utility Combine

As a compact SUV, the Jeep Wrangler seats four while the midsize Toyota 4Runner seats five. If you're interested in a family-approved Jeep Wrangler version, four-door models-the Wrangler Unlimited-seat five. An added level of adaptability is available in the Jeep Wrangler since you can remove its doors and top for open-air adventures in the spring and summer.

Both vehicle models give you commanding sight lines from the driver's seat and offer spacious cabins with two seating rows. And just because you're roughing it outside in your SUV doesn't mean you must indoors. A variety of connectivity and comfort features are made available on the 2017 Jeep Wrangler and the 2017 Toyota 4-Runner, including satellite radio, navigation, and premium stereo packages.

Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4-Runner: The Verdict

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler and the 2017 Toyota 4-Runner both offer features and capabilities that NYC's nature fans will love, but only the Jeep Wrangler boasts Trail-Rated� performance and the ability to transform its vehicle body into a true open-air traveler.
