2017 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2017 Toyota 4Runner

2017 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2017 Toyota 4Runner

While we believe strongly in all the Jeep vehicles we offer at Caledon Chrysler, occationally we like to put them up against others in the class. This time around, we want to compare the exciting 2017 Jeep Wrangler, to the popular 2017 Toyota 4Runner. Let's take a closer look at both vehicles.



2017 Jeep Wrangler

As one of the first SUVs ever available, the Jeep Wrangler has always set the trends instead of following the, Available in ten trim levels, four-wheel drive, and a variety of bold exterior colours including Firecracker Red, the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is Canada's most capable SUV based on a number of factors including

  • Approach angle
  • Departure angle
  • Breakover angle
  • Ground clearance
  • Water fording

All 2017 Jeep Wrangler trims come with an impressive 3.6-liter V-6 24-valve VVT engine with a regular duty engine oil cooler that produces 285 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm. To give you full control of this exciting SUV, you chose between a six-speed manual transmission or an available five-speed automatic transmission that has Hill Descent Control and gives you up to 14.2 L/100 km city and 11.0 L/100 km highway in fuel efficiency.* Another benefit of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is its off-road capabilities. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is equipped with Next Generation Dana 30 solid front axle and 44 heavy duty rear axle, an available Rock-Trac transfer case, heavy-duty suspension with gas shocks, and Command-Trac Shift-On-The-Fly part-time 4WD standard. This powerful SUV has a maximum towing capacity of 1,588 kg.



The 2017 Jeep Wrangler from North York Chrysler is loaded with standard and optional safety, tech, and comfort features including:

    • Leather seats with cloth Sedoso fabric
    • Advanced multistage front airbags
    • Fully padded sports bar protect you and your passengers
    • Electronic Vehicle Tracking System by Mopar.
    • Heated front seats
    • Leather seats with cloth Sedoso fabric
    • Leather-trimmed bucket seats.
    • Alpine Premium nine-speaker audio system
    • Radio 430 and 430N Multimedia centres
    • Factory installed Sirius XM Satellite Radio with a one-year subscription available
    • Five-year/100,000 km powertrain warranty and up to 60 months of roadside assistance



2017 Toyota 4Runner

Unlike the versatile 2017 Jeep Wrangler, the 2017 Toyota 4Runner only comes in six trim levels. Most are powered by a 4.0-liter six cylinder that gives you 270 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and you also get a five-speed transmission that provides up to 14.3 L/100 km and 12.0 L/100 km in fuel efficiency. The 4Runner offers other standard and optional features including:

  • A 6.1-inch touchscreen audio system with steering-wheel mounted controls
  • Integrated navigation
  • Bluetooth
  • Backup camera


One of the major downsides to the 2017 Toyota 4Runner only offers you a three-year/60,000 km vehicle warranty and 46 months of roadside assistance. However, the biggest disappointment has to be the cost. It might seem shocking, but a basic 4Runner is only around $1,000 less than the top-of-the-line 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon!


While both of these SUVs have their benefits, the experts seem to agree that the 2017 Jeep Wrangler gives you much more for your money and will never let you down when it comes to power and performance.
