Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner: Off-Road-Ready Features

If you're considering the 4Runner or Wrangler, chances are high that you're looking to do at least some off-roading. At the very least, you'd probably like a vehicle that's capable of getting you through even the most inclement weather in Manitowoc. Either way, the Toyota 4Runner boasts some pretty impressive off-road-ready features like CRAWL Control, which utilizes intelligent off-road technology to regulate the throttle and brakes on low-speed settings. 

The above having been said, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the reputation Jeep has garnered as a brand that produces some of the most capable off-roaders in Neenah and all across the U.S. So keep the following in mind when weighing whether the 4Runner or Wrangler is better for you:

  • Kolosso CDJR has Mopar® lift kits available that are ready to help you equip your Wrangler with even more off-road ability!
  • The Trail Rated® Badge has been granted to every 2021 Jeep Wrangler for passing tests that prove it's more than capable on rugged terrain, in bad weather, and through other adverse conditions. 
  • Tow hooks constructed of forged steel are frame-mounted so that you're always ready to help a fellow off-roader, or that damsel or damoiseau in distress, on the side of the highway in Kaukauna.
