2016 Toyota 4Runner vs 2016 Jeep Wrangler
With only two vehicles having gone longer without a major renovation, the Toyota 4Runner is currently one of the oldest vehicles on the brand’s lineup. Its last overhaul was done in 2009 for the 2010 model year, and it hasn’t received so much as a facelift since. We thought we might compare the 4Runner to another vehicle in its segment that has proven its popularity, but hasn’t had an update in even longer, so we took a closer look at the 2016 Toyota 4Runner vs 2016 Jeep Wrangler, the Wrangler having not been overhauled since 2006.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota 4Runner
As you can tell be taking a look at the table above, the Wrangler might not have as dominant a clutch on the segment as it thinks, as the off-road-friendly Toyota 4Runner certainly gives it a run for its money in multiple categories. Starting from the top, Toyota’s SUV utilizes half a litre less fuel per 100 kilometres, which will save a bit of gasoline on those off-roading trips.
But more importantly, those trips generally warrant a hefty amount of cargo be taken along, and the 4Runner can certainly accommodate these needs better. Behind the third row alone, the 4Runner offers an extra 15.7 cubic feet of space to fill with any kind of gear. Going on a trip that needs bigger gear but have fewer passengers, drop the back seats and open up 80.7 cu. ft., 10.1 cu. ft. more max cargo capacity than the Wrangler. And if you need to drag something along behind, like snowmobiles perhaps, the Toyota can haul an extra 1,500 lbs.
