2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2020 Toyota 4Runner in Marietta, GA
When shopping for an SUV, the number of options can be overwhelming. However, one rises above the rest: the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, whose impressive performance, luxurious interior, and cutting-edge safety features give you the most for your money. Let’s see how it compares to one of its competitors, the Toyota 4Runner.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Leaves Others in the Dust
If you only care about navigating rugged terrain, both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner will serve you just fine. But if you’ll also drive the vehicle around Metro Atlanta, get the Jeep. The 4Runner’s sole engine option is lackluster: a 4.0-liter V6 with just 270 horsepower, 278 lb.-ft. of torque and an average MPG of 16/19 city/hwy.
In contrast, the Jeep Grand Cherokee gives you four powertrain choices, starting with a 295-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with electronic stop/start technology. Or upgrade to one of the Grand Cherokee’s three V8 engines, the most powerful being the Trackhawk model’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 which produces a whopping 707 horsepower and 645 lb.-ft. of torque. Drive further with an average MPG of 19/26 city/hwy.
Pulling a boat or trailer? Trust the Jeep to get it done. While the 4Runner offers up to 5,000 lbs towing capacity, the Grand Cherokee impresses with 6,200-7,200 lbs towing capacity!
To top it all, the Grand Cherokee has a starting MSRP of only $34,000 compared to $36,120 for the 4Runner. You can see where the better value is.
Ride in Style with the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Every Jeep Grand Cherokee is crafted with the finest-quality materials like soft-touch fabrics, Nappa and Laguna leather, and premium wood accents. Just look at the Summit model—the most lavish vehicle in its class—whose diamond-quilted seats and open-pore wood interior inlays ooze sophistication. Or go with the Trackhawk’s racing-inspired interior that includes a flat-bottomed steering wheel and available red seat belts.
While the Toyota 4Runner’s Premium models seem more refined, the vehicle’s interior generally feels as rugged as its exterior. Plasticky materials, lackluster styling, and a more dated-looking dashboard make the 4Runner appear less than state-of-the-art.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Puts Safety First
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee earned a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one star more than the Toyota 4Runner received. This discrepancy is a no-brainer; Toyota Safety Sense P lacks several common driver-assistance features such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring. The Grand Cherokee, on the other hand, possesses copious driver-assistance technology, especially in the Advanced Protech II package. In addition to all of the Protech II features—such as LaneSense lane departure warning with lane keep assist and automatic high-beam headlamps—the advanced package includes:
- Full-speed forward collision warning with active braking
- Adaptive cruise control with stop and go
- Parallel and perpendicular park assist
- Rain-sensing windshield wipers
