Keeping It Wild

Who isn’t looking for a little fun and adventure every once in a while? If that’s you, then the 2020 Toyota 4Runner is for you. This four-door body-on-frame midsize SUV can easily handle any off-road or on-road adventure you may experience.

The 2020 Toyota 4Runner comes in eight great colors, and it is offered in eight impressive trim levels — all of which are Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto compatible. We invite you to stop into Rivertown Toyota today to take an exciting test drive today.

First, Some Comparison Shopping

Jeep has a reputation for producing impressive off-road vehicles. However, the Jeep Grand Cherokee can’t even hold a candle to the 2020 Toyota 4Runner. While the 2020 Grand Cherokee has an available four-wheel drive system and rugged available exterior features, it doesn’t offer the same durability as the body-on-frame 2020 Toyota 4Runner, which was specifically designed for harsh off-road adventures.

The 2020 Toyota 4Runner comes standard with front/rear mud guards, roof rails and skid plates, so you know this SUV is ready for adventure. Plus you can add available features like a power sunroof, running boards and 20-inch, six-spoke alloy wheels to enhance your wild weekend excursions.

Meanwhile, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee features a design that is more reminiscent of other cookie-cutter midsize SUVs. It lacks the necessary off-road features you’ll need to truly make the most of your weekend adventures.

Capability When You Need it Most

If you’re looking for unrivaled capability, then look no further than the Toyota 4Runner. Its standard 4.0L V6 engine delivers 270-horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. Plus, its five-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission offers a smooth experience.

Off-road capability is well supported by an electronically controlled locking rear differential, multi-terrain select and crawl control for driving on difficult terrain at low speeds.

The 2020 Toyota 4Runner will also help you bring all your toys along for your weekend outing. The 2020 4Runner comes standard with an integrated towing hitch receiver and wiring harness with four- and seven-pin connectors. It has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 6,300 pounds, and it can tow up to 5,000 pounds. You can also lower the rear seats to open up a maximum of 89.7 cubic feet of cargo space.

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s 3.6L V6 engine seems to put up a fight with 295 horsepower. However, when it comes to off-road driving, you’ll need as much torque as you can get. With just 260 lb-ft of torque, that’s where the Grand Cherokee falls short of the 2020 Toyota 4Runner.

The base model of the 2020 Grand Cherokee only musters a max towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. Meanwhile, an integrated towing hitch receiver is absent on all Grand Cherokee models except the Trailhawk® trim.

Wherever You’re Going, You’ll Be Safe Out There

Toyota Safety Sense P is a standard safety suite that includes advanced driver aids such as pre-collision-avoidance, to reduce the likelihood of colliding with another vehicle in front of you, lane departure alert warns you that you have moved or veered out of your lane and adaptive cruise control to adjust your set speed and maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee includes your typical safety features, like brake assist, traction control, ABS, electronic stability and a rearview camera. However, the majority of its advanced driver-assist systems come with an added cost or on higher trims.

Interior of the 2020 Toyota 4Runner

Inside Comfort and Technology for All Terrains

With five-seat capacity, SofTex®-trimmed heated front seats warm you quickly on those frosty mornings and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support keeps you both comfortable — and sharp. Second-row seat turns into a 40/20/40 split-reclining seat that folds flat when you need it to.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee, with a five-seat capacity and heated simulated suede and leather seats supports heated front seats and eight-way direction control adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support and comes with a 60/40 split-bench folding rear seat for extra cargo room.

Yes, there are times when you also need to disconnect. And there are times when “getting away” also means “getting way from,” and carmakers understand that. So for those other times, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner now boasts an eight-inch touchscreen in their premium audio system as standard equipment and with eight-speaker audio so you can listen to your favorite tunes and experience true enjoyment. The 4Runner’s infotainment system with dynamic voice recognition, hands-free phone capability and music streaming via Bluetooth®, includes Amazon Alexa compatibility, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Smart Key with push-button start and two extra rear-seat USB ports come standard.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 10-speaker audio system adequately fills the cabin with preferred sound whether from the AM/FM/HD stereo radio with external digital memory and voice-activated audio control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration or your own Bluetooth connected devices.
