Which One Best Suits the Off-Road
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler tackles adventure with legendary capability thanks to over 34 years of heritage. Stemming from its ancestor, the World War II Jeep, the 2020 Wrangler owns the trials as it takes you for a thrilling adventure. Trying to steal some of its shine, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner straps on some rugged gear and invites you to come for a ride off-road. But, is it enough to make the Jeep Wrangler crack under pressure? Dive in as we find out.
As always, to explore the 2020 Jeep Wrangler come into Central CDJR and explore the champ in person.
Legends Don’t Need Attention
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler stands boldly in its iconic style, featuring a modernized rendition of its legendary design. Upfront, it features its recognizable 7-slotted grille along with circular headlights. Modern LED treatments thrust the iconic design into the future, while its rugged body features recognizable boxy taillights. A range of roof options let adventure flow, letting you choose between your choice of a power-retractable soft-top, a removable soft top, or a three-piece hardtop.
The 2020 Toyota 4Runner features a very attention-grabbing style that may cause you to turn your lip. Resting on unique geometric proportions, the 2020 4Runner attempts to balance style while ensuring that it is still rugged. Though it screams adventure, it doesn’t feature a removable roof like the Wrangler or the iconic style.
Capable Yet Economical
The standard engine on the 2020 Wrangler serves as a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that brings 285 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque, while four more engine choices let you choose how you adventure. Mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the Pentastar V6 puts power in your hands, as the Wrangler drives power to all four wheels. As adventurous and capable as the 2020 Wrangler maybe, its incredibly efficient, returning an EPA-estimated 25 MPG on the highway.
The Toyota 4Runner, on the other hand, still has some learning to do. Featuring a sole powertrain, the Toyota 4Runner utilizes a 4.0-liter V6 engine that generates 270 horsepower and 278lb-ft of torque. Mated to a 5-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission, drives power to the rear wheels but features available part-time four-wheel drive to get you out of sticky situations when necessary. Despite the attempt to save fuel, the 4Runner manages to return a thirsty EPA-estimated 19MPG on the highway.
Safety You Can Count On
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler features a barrage of safety features that include protective provisions like Active Blind Spot Monitoring that looks over your shoulder so you can change lanes with confidence. Available features like Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking protects you from preventable frontal collisions, while available Adaptive Cruise Control helps you relieve some of the stress from long commutes and highway driving.
The 2020 Toyota 4Runner features all that thanks to its standard Toyota Safety Sense®-P, but the 2020 Jeep Wrangler shines as it goes the extra mile to keep you safe and secure. Available SiriusXM Guardian™includes a factory-installed theft alarm system that can notify you via text or email of alarms, while the available on-board SOS system that helps you call for help during emergencies.
A Cabin Ready for Some Fun
Climb inside the 2020 Jeep Wrangler and you’ll live on the edge thanks to the removable doors and premium luxury that you can take off-road. Available leather seats let your adventure in first class, while weather resistant removable carpet and a one-way drain make cleanup a breeze.
Continuing with premium amenities front seats feature available heating, while available dual-zone automatic climate control ensures that neither you or your passenger has to fight over the air conditioning.
The 2020 4Runner tries desperately to make the journey comfortable by featuring available amenities like leather heated seats, but a puny moonroof can’t connect you to adventure like the Wrangler’s topless options. Rather than gearing you up for an adventure, the 4Runner encapsulates you from it.
The 2020 Wrangler centers technology around an available 8.4-inch touchscreen UConnect® infotainment system that brings perspective to the adventure. In addition to amenities like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, the adventurous Wrangler features a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot that not only lets you and your passengers surf, stream, and browse the internet, but lets you travel up to 50 feet while still enjoying fast connectivity.
The 4Runner tries to keep up by offering similar amenities on its smaller touchscreen display but fails to meet the award-winning responsive interface in the Jeep that even features drag and drop capability.
