Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner: Engine Choices

Vehicles that are designed with off-roading in-mind, including the new Toyota 4Runner, are usually built with powerful engines. The Toyota 4Runner, with its standard 4.0L six-cylinder engine that generates 270 horsepower, is no exception. But whereas the 4Runner offers only this engine, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler offers these five engine options:

2020 Jeep Wrangler Engine Choices

  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 boasts best-of-Wrangler-lineup gas mileage figures, at 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway respectively.
  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 with eTorque offers best-of-Wrangler-lineup power, rated at 285 horsepower.
  • 2.0L Turbo with eTorque is a mild hybrid that runs steady and smooth on all trails or paved Kaukana-area roads alike.
  • 2.0L Turbo generates 295 lb-ft of torque, the most of any Jeep Wrangler.
  • 3.0LEcoDiesel introduces a diesel option to the Wrangler lineup, which many efficiency-minded Green Bay area drivers are sure to appreciate.

2021 Toyota 4Runner Engine Choices

  • A standard 4.0L V6 DOHC 24-Valve with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) is the sole engine choice in the 4Runner lineup for Oshkosh area drivers.
  • With 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, and mated to a 5-Speed automatic transmission, the 4Runner engine is certainly not scant on power, but it employes older Toyota technology, and may not impress Neenah SUV shoppers as much as the engines in the new Wrangler lineup
  • The estimated fuel economy for the 4Runner with its V6 is an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city and 20 mpg highway.

Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner: Off-Road Capability

When comparing the 2020 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2021 Toyota 4Runner, you'll want to be sure to pit them against each other with regard to their off-road capability and unique features. The Toyota 4Runner, for instance, includes CRAWL Control, which makes use of intelligent off-road technology to adjust the throttle and brakes as necessary during low speeds.

The trail-readiness of the new Wrangler, on the other hand, is equally impressive. If you're still torn between the 4Runner or Wrangler, you should know that the Wrangler offers these additional off-road capability-enhancing features:

  • Every 2020 Jeep Wrangler has been awarded the Jeep Trail Rated® badge for passing tests that prove its rough hewn capability in bad weather, on tough trails, and more. 
  • The Mopar lift kits available at our service center are designed with your Jeep Wrangler in mind. 
  • Forged tow hooks made of high-quality steel come mounted to the frame of new Wrangler models to make sure you can help if someone gets stuck in the mud on Waupaca or Manitowoc trails.
