Discover How the Grand Cherokee Compares to its Toyota Rival

There are plenty of SUVs out there for our South Dakota customers to consider these days, but two of the standard-bearers continue to lead the way when it comes to offering the versatility, capability, and performance that you want. These two? Our Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Toyota 4Runner. We thought it a good idea to see how these two fare in a head-to-head showdown. We chose to compare introductory models of each, so these are both equipped with front-wheel drive -- though each naturally can be equipped with the all-wheel drive that makes driving around Sioux Falls SD more assured in tough road conditions.


The Grand Cherokee starts with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price that's about $3,000 lower than the 4Runner's beginning MSRP. Then consider that the Grand Cherokee has a lower cost-of-ownership than does the 4Runner, and you can see why the Grand Cherokee is the better option for our budget-conscious Mitchell SD customers.


The Jeep Grand Cherokee features a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that manufactures 295 horsepower, outperforming the 4Runner's 4.0-liter V6 and its output of 270 horsepower. While the 4Runner does have a slight edge when it comes to torque, the Grand Cherokee wins the all-important fuel economy battle -- both in city driving and out on the open highway between Harrisburg SD and Huron SD.


Whether you're considering standard or maximum towing capacity figures, the Grand Cherokee is rated to haul a heavier load than the 4Runner can manage.

Interior ComfortThis comparison seemed unfair right from the start, given that the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers more overall personal space for both front- and rear-seat passengers than does the 4Runner. Not only do you and your guests have more space for a long ride, but the Grand Cherokee also has a larger cargo area behind the rear seats -- so you can haul everyone's gear with greater ease as well.
