When it comes to off-road SUVs, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler and Toyota 4Runner sit at the top of the class. Both vehicles bring a history of reliability and capability. However, the Jeep Wrangler is the 2019 MotorTrend SUV of the Year and uniquely designed to go where other SUVs can't. Let's take a closer look at a head-to-head matchup between the 2019 Jeep Wrangler vs the Toyota 4Runner.

Performance: 2019 Jeep Wrangler vs 2019 Toyota 4Runner

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler comes with a standard 3.6L V6 engine paired with a 6-speed 4WD transmission. This immaculate combo produces up to 285 HP while gently sipping fuel to the tune of 25/17 MPG (Highway/City). You can also choose the 2.0L Direct Injection Turbo Engine for an even more efficient experience. The Wrangler offers you the choice of three different 4x4 systems: Rock-Trac, Command-Trac, and Select-Trac. On the other hand, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner boasts a larger 4.0L V6 engine under the hood. In spite of it being a bigger engine, the 4Runner only delivers 270 HP. To add injury to insult, the 4Runner is a gas-guzzling machine - at 20/17 MPG (City/Highway). However, the 4Runner does offer a multi-terrain select for maximum crawl control and traction with five low-speed settings.

Features: 2019 Toyota 4Runner vs 2019 Jeep Wrangler


The 2019 Jeep Wrangler boasts a range of different off-roading features designed to help you confidently go where others wouldn't dare. It features a unique fold-down windshield, removable doors, and a soft, hard, or no-top option. On the inside, the Jeep Wrangler features the award-winning UConnect system that displays a range of options on a large 8.4-inch touch screen. You can quickly access Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and much more. On the other hand, you'd need to do some massive, permanent customizations to your 4Runner to connect with the outdoors.

Off-Roading Capability: The Wrangler vs The 4Runner

If you're in the market for a 4Runner or Wrangler, you're undoubtedly looking to create new trails and explore off the well-beaten path. While both vehicles include 4x4 systems and off-road capabilities, the Wrangler Trail Rated Badge places it in an entirely different class. The Wrangler Trail Rated Badge includes upgrades that are simply not offered on the 4Runner, such as: 

  • Dana 44 Axles designed to whip the toughest trails into submission. 
  • The Trail Rated Badge proves your Wrangler's configuration has been meticulously tested in water fording, ground clearance, articulation, traction, and maneuverability. 
  • Tow Hooks are forged and steel-mounted to make sure you're the one pulling your buddy's 4Runner out of the mud. 
  • Rear and Front Tru-Lok electronic locking differentials work to evenly distribute power between your wheels to help ensure you have the right amount of power when you need it. 
  • The Large 33-inch off-road tires are uniquely designed to crush rocks and sling mud. 

 And once you're done, the Wrangler cleans up nicely with a wash-out interior.
