Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner: Battle of the Off-Road SUVs

The true sport utility vehicle is a dying breed. “SUV” once meant a large, truck-based vehicle with transfer-case-operated low-range gearing and the ability to go where regular cars and vans could not. But that definition has changed.

With the advent of the crossover, the definition of SUV has moved to more car-based vehicles with the look and feel of a brawny SUV, but ultimately little more than a jacked up station wagon beneath the hood.

But fret not! There are still tried-and-true SUVs on the market, and the two most honest applications of the term 4x4 are the Jeep Wrangler and Toyota 4Runner. They each go about the SUV term in very different ways, but they are each still faithful to the term in their own unique way.

Each vehicle fulfills different needs for different types of SUV shoppers. So which one is right for you? Read on to find out!
