2016 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2016 Toyota 4Runner

Shopping for a new vehicle is exciting time, but with so many options on the market, making a decision can be an enjoyable challenge. Two popular options in the affordable SUVs category are the 2016 Jeep Cherokee and the 2016 Toyota 4Runner. Both offer high quality, unique design, and off-road capability. So how will you decide between them on your next shopping trip near Merrimack, Manchester, and Nashua? Take a look at this vehicle comparison and take your pick.

About the 2016 Jeep Cherokee

The 2016 Jeep Cherokee offers a smooth and comfortable ride both on and off-road, which is exactly what you'd expect from Jeep.

With many of the same manners as even more rugged models in the Jeep lineup, the 2016 Cherokee offers a powerful 2.4-liter I4 MultiAir engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. This model comes standard with Jeep Active Drive I, the 4x4 system with rear axle disconnect feature for improved efficiency.

There's also an available 2.4-liter I4 PZEV M-Air engine that can be paired with the nine-speed transmission with Jeep Active Drive II, which offers Hill Descent Control and off-road suspension.

The Jeep Cherokee is also well-equipped inside, with all of the high-quality features you'd want. The list of available features includes heated front seats, leather-trimmed seats, a heated steering wheel, and a 5- or 8.4-inch touchscreen entertainment system display, six- or nine-speaker audio system, GPS navigation, and integrated voice command with Bluetooth.

About the 2016 Toyota 4Runner

In comparison, the 2016 Toyota 4Runner just doesn't seem as well-equipped as others in the class. The vehicle's poor fuel economy is one of the biggest drawbacks. An older transmission style and a worse-handling suspension system leave many wondering how great the vehicle can really be on off-road adventures.

While the 2016 Toyota 4Runner is more of a cool vehicle with an interesting exterior design, the actual driving dynamics required for an off-road vehicle that you can still use for your everyday morning commute just aren't there yet.
