Adventure is calling. How will you answer? Pick an off-roading vehicle that gets the job done while limiting the stress and fatigue of you and your passengers. When you need something a step above average, consider going with an SUV that has a reputation for demolishing the rough terrain. Check out our comparison between the 2018 Toyota 4Runner vs 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
First off, it should be noted that most individuals aren’t looking to spend a boatload of money on a vehicle with outstanding off-roading abilities. The 2018 4Runner comes in with an MSRP of nearly $4,000 less than the Grand Cherokee. Why is that? It could be because of the name associated with the brand for Jeep, but you’re not really sacrificing much when you choose the less expensive option. Take a look.

Looking for more reasons to go with one of the top automakers in the world? The 4Runner beats out the Grand Cherokee in a number of areas. Take cargo volume for example. Chances are you’d prefer a little extra space to bring along all your stuff for the weekend getaway. The 4Runner can make it happen, thanks to a spacious 47.2 cubic feet of standard cargo space. The Grand Cherokee falls behind at 36.3 cubic feet, which is still decent but not quite the same. In addition, the 4Runner has a higher maximum payload, a standard MP3 player, Vehicle Speed-Proportional Power Steering, a skid plate for underbody protection, and much more. Its competitor has none of those.
