Rugged and Adventure-Ready

When you’re looking for new adventures in a heavy-duty SUV, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner is here for you. Even a quick look at the exterior lets you know this SUV is all about capability and fun. A sculpted design combined with available all-terrain tires creates a strong presence that’s ready to go anywhere. Opt for the Toyota 4Runner TRD, and you’ll find black-painted accents to go along with all your off-roading tools—it’s a sleek design meeting with functionality.

There’s no denying the 2020 Toyota 4Runner is ready to hit the road with all-out power. But how does this SUV compare to others on the market like the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Let’s take a look at both to see what these capable SUVs bring to your adventures.

Or, if you’re ready to try out the 2020 Toyota 4Runner now, head to World Toyota in Atlanta to test-drive this adventure-driven SUV.

Get Ready to Travel Off the Paved Path

Get behind the wheel of the 2020 Toyota 4Runner, and you’ll have access to all the available off-road features you’ll ever need.

For handling tricky grades or improving your grip on icy/ snowy roads, the SR5 and TRD Off-Road offer part-time 4WD with Active Traction Control (A-TRAC).

When you need to take extra control, the Toyota 4Runner Limited brings full-time 4WD with A-Trac and Torsen® limited slip center differential with locking. In short, this feature helps you navigate steep and rough grades, and most road surfaces and terrains you’ll come across.

To optimize your drives, the available Multi-Terrain Select controls the wheel spin of your SUV so that you can cruise over everything from boulders to sandy roads with full efficiency. You can also turn on the available Crawl Control (CRAWL) to enter a cruise-control state on the off-road so that you can focus on the obstacles ahead.

Whichever model of the 2020 Toyota 4Runner you select, you’ll find a 4.0L V6 motor with 270 horsepower resting under the hood. It’s all the power you’ll need to enjoy exhilarating rides down the highways (or up mountain passes) or to pass any slow drivers with ease.

Combined with the 278 lb-ft torque, this SUV’s engine packs a towing capacity up to 5,000 pounds. With that, you’ll carry any weekend toys like ATVs and dirt bikes to the mountains without effort. It’s also enough power for your boats, campers, trailers, and plenty more.

By comparison, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee also offers an available off-road system with a Rear Electronic Limited Slip Differential to help the SUV stay in control. For base engine specs, Jeep’s SUV brings a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 motor. And with 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft torque, it puts out a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs.

All-Out Adventure Blends with All-Out Comfort

While enjoying the rugged capability of the 2020 Toyota 4Runner, you can also kick back and enjoy the abundance of luxury and comfort features waiting to pamper you.

For any season, available heated and ventilated seats help you stay comfortable for any drive you take—whether it’s a quick run to Sandy Springs or a drive across the state. Even on the coldest winter mornings, your seats warm you up in minutes so that you can relax and enjoy the ride.

During your off-roading adventures, the SR5 Premium and TRD Off-Road pack SofTex® upholstery for a refined leather-look that’s easy to clean after your messiest drives. Speaking of seating, you get your choice between two rows or three rows for when you want to bring up to six other friends along for the ride.

When it’s time to load and unload your cargo, play around with the standard power rear window. Unloading groceries never felt as easy or fun.

Need to connect to your smartphone? The 2020 Toyota 4Runner makes it easy with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto compatibility. Make calls and check your messages hands-free while keeping your eyes on the road ahead. When you need to set the right mood for the ride, you can jam out to all your phone’s loaded playlists and songs.

When you need a personal assistant, Toyota + Alexa responds to your commands. Ask anything, like to play your favorite tunes, check up on traffic conditions, or even find parking when you’re cruising Atlanta. All you need to do is ask.

When you step inside the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you’ll also find a few luxury touches like available ventilated front seats and available leather textures throughout the 5-passenger SUV. For connecting to your media, an LCD monitor comes standard, but you can upgrade to the Uconnect 4C NAV with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Here, Siri® or your Google Assistant guide your drives and dictate your texts for you.

Standard Safety to Keep the Adventure Going

The 2020 Toyota 4Runner isn’t just capable and fun to drive—it’s also safe to drive thanks to standard Toyota Safety Sense P. These are driver-assist features to help you navigate the local highways, parking lots, and city streets like a professional.

Standard Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection sends you visual and audible alerts when it senses people, traffic, and obstacles ahead. If you don’t act, your 2020 Toyota 4Runner automatically brakes to help you avoid a nasty collision.

Having trouble staying in line? Allow Lane Departure Alert to help by sending you audio and visual alerts the moment your SUV unintentionally drifts from its lane. It’s an easy way to avoid sideswipes and to help you stay out of the way of oncoming traffic.

For highway drives, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control removes the stress by automatically controlling your speed and the distance you keep from cars ahead. When you need to drastically slow down, you’ll receive alerts so that nothing comes as a surprise. It can even make rush hour commutes on the I-85 toward Alpharetta into a soothing experience.

When the lighting on the road gets dim, Automatic High Beams illuminate the path ahead. They’ll even adjust between high and low beams whenever traffic approaches to keep everyone on the road safe.

By comparison, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee also offers standard driver-assists. To make your rides safe, you’ll spot the following safety features:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection
  • Rear Park Assist
  • Rear Backup Camera
