2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2021 Toyota 4Runner

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner

As two of the most popular sport utility vehicles on the market, the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner make natural rivals. Being the preeminent purveyor of all things Jeep in the Killam, Alberta area, Campbell-McLennan Chrysler is a bit if an authority on the 2021 Grand Cherokee. We're thrilled to show our customers in both Killam and the nearby areas of Edmonton, Wainwright, Metaskiwin, and Camrose how this Jeep fixture measures up against the 4Runner in several key areas. Find out which crossover is the better investment below, and feel free to contact us to schedule a test drive of the latest Jeep Cherokee today.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Performance

The new Grand Cherokee may land on the upscale side of its segment, but rest assured, it's far from tame. A 3.6-litre V6 engine offers plenty of pep in nearly 300 horses and works in tandem with a standard 8-speed automatic transmission for a riveting drive that keeps on-road ruckus from entering the cabin. The new Jeep SUV also boasts some of the best towing capability in its class, hauling up to 6,200 pounds when powered by the base V6 and 7,200 with the available HEMI V8.

As for its adversary, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner's towing capacity tops out at 5,000 pounds, and that's not the only thing about it that pales in comparison to the Grand Cherokee. Not only is its on-road ride clunky, but its fuel efficiency also leaves much to be desired, burning nearly 15 L/100km in the city and 12.4 on the highway. The Jeep Grand Cherokee, by comparison, nets equivalent figures of 12.7 and 9.6, both of which best many a competitor.

Jeep Grand Cherokee & Toyota 4Runner Off-Road Capability

For all its faults, the 2021 4Runner remains a capable off-road SUV thanks to its body-on-frame build and ground clearance, among other things. That said, the Grand Cherokee is annually heralded as one the most reliable off-roaders on the market for good reason - more than one, in fact. Between its 4x4 drive system and a Trailhawk trim built for mudding, rock-crawling, and everything in between, this new Jeep offering will win the hearts of many thrill-seekers yet again. Boasting a truckish frame, electronic limited-slip differential, and a Selec-Terrain traction management system, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk can hit the trails like no other vehicle in its class.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Interior Features

This is where the new Jeep SUV really separates itself from the 2021 4Runner. While the Toyota crossover's cabin boasts comfortable seating and respectable storage capability, it remains cursed by dated materials and a glaring lack of style. The new Grand Cherokee, on the other hand, hits the market with an interior that's equal parts refined and supportive. Leather and soft-touch materials show up in all the right places, such as the armrests and dashboard, while foldable rear seats enhance the Jeep crossover's cargo capacity. A standard infotainment touchscreen and the lauded Uconnect multimedia system meet all your tech and connectivity needs, with the Grand Cherokee's upper trims offering various upgrades, including a 9-speaker Alpine audio system.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee & Toyota 4Runner Exterior Styling

They may both be SUVs, but the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner differ greatly as far as exterior appearances go. The new 4Runner fits the bill of a classic off-road vehicle, with a rugged and somewhat boxy frame punctuated by a bold grille. The new Grand Cherokee, by comparison, maintains the same elegant styling long synonymous with its name. Its frame is both truckish and elegant, and best of all, it comes in numerous configurations and body colours, as this year's lineup is nearly a dozen trims deep. In short, while off-roaders are sure to be smitten with the 4Runner's build, variety remains the spice of life, and the striking Jeep Grand Cherokee has it in spades.
