Performance Features and Engine Specs

To get started, we’ll head right under the hood and check out what powers these beasts.

With the 2020 Wrangler, you’ll get your choice of five different engine options.

  • 2.0L Turbo engine: 270 horsepower / 295 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L Turbo engine with eTorque: 270 horsepower / 295 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L EcoDiesel engine: 260 horsepower / 442 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine: 285 horsepower / 260 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque: 285 horsepower / 260 lb-ft of torque

Over in the 4Runner, you’re only going to get one engine option—the 4.0L V6—which tops out at just 270 horsepower, and 278 lb-ft of torque.

With all that power, the Wrangler still manages to deliver excellent fuel-efficiency ratings, getting a standard EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 29 MPG highway rating when equipped with the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine. The 4Runner once again falls short, delivering just a standard 16 MPG city and 19 MPG highway rating.

Design and Style

Now, we’ll move on the exterior and interior design features that set these two apart.

With the 2020 Wrangler, you’ll choose between five different soft top and hardtop roof options that allow you to open up your vehicle and feel the wind in your hair as the sun shines down on you.

  • Sky One-Touch™ Power Top
  • Zipperless Sunrider® Soft Top
  • Premium Black Sunrider® Soft Top
  • Premium Tan Sunrider® Soft Top
  • Black Freedom Top® Three-Piece Hardtop

With the Sky One-Touch™ Power Top, you can easily fold back your roof with the touch of a button—and be sure to ask us about the available removable doors, and available fold-down windshield. The hardtop can be removed in three pieces, and stored away back in your trunk.

With the 2020 4Runner, you will not have the ability to remove the roof and open up the vehicle, making it much less adventurous and fun.

The Verdict: 2020 Jeep Wrangler vs Toyota 4Runner

While both vehicles may be a decent choice for your commutes around the Wilsonville, Woodburn, and Portland, Oregon, areas, it’s clear the Wrangler outperforms the 4Runner in such crucial categories as performance, MPG ratings, and design.
