2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

vs 2021 Toyota 4Runner in Nicholasville, KY

Celebrated as the most awarded SUV ever,* there’s a reason (or two) why the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee has maintained a strong, loyal following throughout the years. A larger, more road-friendly version of the Jeep Cherokee, the Grand Cherokee impresses with available conveniences that create the interior upgrade you’ve been looking for, like Nappa leather seating, a heated second row and black wood trim. Dazzling technology and an abundance of standard and available safety features are along for the ride as well, making the Grand Cherokee a well-equipped, fully capable SUV for all of your adventures. But even with Grand Cherokee’s numerous accolades, those in the SUV market have likely been persuaded by the 2021 Toyota 4Runner. Let’s take a closer look at these two vehicles below.

Sorry, Toyota. Maybe next year. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee schools the 4Runner in everything from performance to the number of available speakers. With an entire two-liter difference between the V8 and V6 engines and three additional speeds between the transmissions, the 4Runner is a bit… lacking. Especially when it comes to the Grand Cherokee’s boast as sporting the best-in-class available towing capacity of 7,200 pounds.^ Sure, the 4Runner may provide the Yakima® MegaWarrior cargo basket at an additional charge, but will an accessory really change your mind? The Grand Cherokee sits higher with 10.8 inches of available ground clearance for those spontaneous, off-road adventures, and you’ll be protected on and off the road with a standard safety feature: Blind Spot Monitoring. Something that the 2021 Toyota 4Runner (you guessed it) fails to provide.
