Red Jeep SUV Mountain top

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2023 Toyota 4Runner were evaluated based on performance, gas mileage, towing, off-road abilities, safety, passenger/cargo space, and warranty coverage. Before commencing the comparison, it was imminent that there was one clear winner, so here’s a rundown of why enthusiasts deserve nothing but the best, the Jeep Grand Cherokee. 

Performance 

The 2023 Toyota 4Runner receives just one engine, the uninspiring 4.0-liter V6 engine that generates 270 horsepower. Whereas the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a variety of engines that are “Made for What You’re Made of,” all three are powerful. The first Grand Cherokee engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that yields 293 horsepower, the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that outputs 357 horsepower, and the plug-in hybrid that forges 375 horsepower.  

Gas Mileage 

Regarding efficiency, the Jeep Grand Cherokee steals the show again, with gas mileage estimated at 22 mpg combined. Additionally, the Grand Cherokee 4xe holds a fuel economy of 56 mpge in electric mode and 23 combined mpg in hybrid mode. However, the Toyota 4Runner can drive enthusiasts to the corner store, but it can not go back home with a measly 17 combined mpg. 

Towing 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee goes for the clean sweep in another category, towing capacity. The Grand Cherokee pulls up to 7,200 lbs, while the Toyota 4Runner struggles to haul beyond 5,000 lbs. 

Off-Road Capabilities 

Here’s where the 2023 Toyota 4Runner finally keeps up with the Grand Cherokee, with exceptional off-road capabilities. The Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner provide a sophisticated four-wheel drive system and off-road enhancing features. Both SUV’s off-road enriched features include all-terrain tires, an off-road-tuned suspension, and off-road drive modes. Furthermore, the best trims to savor the great outdoors in the Grand Cherokee are the SRT, Trailhawk, and Trackhawk. 

Safety 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner draw another tie in safety. Both SUV’s safety and driving assist features include blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, brake assist, a backup camera, and electronic stability control. 

Passenger/Cargo Space 

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee is larger than the 2023 Toyota 4Runner, equating to more passenger space. The Grand Cherokee L holds a total passenger volume of 152 cu-ft for the three-row and 144.6 cu-ft for the two-row model. Then there’s the Toyota 4Runner, which has a cramped passenger capacity of 128.0 cu-ft for the three-model and the restriction of 93.7 cu-ft for the two-row model. 

To prove our unbias, the Toyota 4Runner beat the Jeep Grand Cherokee in storage capacity. The Toyota 4Runner has a maximum cargo capacity of 89.7 cu-ft, to the Grand Cherokee’s 84.6 ct-ft.  

Warranty Coverage 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner offer sensational warranty support with 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. However, although both SUVs provide free maintenance service, the Toyota 4Runner is not as generous as the Grand Cherokee. For example, the Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers three years or 36,000 miles of coverage while Toyota feeds 4Runner enthusiasts to the wolves with two years or 25,000 miles.  

The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Toyota 4Runner 

Although it is no surprise, the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee holds significant advantages over the 2023 Toyota 4Runner. The Grand Cherokee contains many benefits such as performance, gas mileage, towing, passenger capacity, and an exceptional maintenance plan. If enthusiasts select the Toyota 4Runner, then cheer for the decent cargo space.
