2020 Jeep Gladiator vs. 2019 Toyota 4Runner

Let’s paint a picture. You’re thinking of getting a new vehicle to explore Northwest Arkansas’s expansive, natural beauty. You’ve racked your brain with model after model, brand after brand, but you just can’t make a decision. Odds are, you’ve encountered the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator and the 2019 Toyota 4Runner when looking for spacious off-roaders. Let’s have a good old fashioned showdown and see who winds out on top.

Drive confident with the 2020 Jeep Gladiator’s 285 horsepower, 260 lb.-ft. of torque 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine. Perfect for crawling through brush-ridden trails and trekking roads less taken, you’ll enjoy Engine-Start-Stop Technology to help you maximize your Gladiator’s efficiency. The 2019 4Runner’s 4.0L V6 DOHC 24-Valve with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (whew, say that five times fast) only nets the 4Runner 270 horsepower and a comparable 278 lb.-ft. of torque. Jeep takes the cake when it comes to the 2020 Jeep Gladiator’s towing capacity. Sitting at an impressive 7,650-pound tow-rating, the Gladiator leaves the 4Runner’s 5,000-pound rating in the dust.

Safety and security are always of the utmost importance when considering buying a vehicle. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator comes with a wide berth of standard safety features and a handful of available features that amplify your driving experience. Standard Trailer Sway Control will keep you in control of your equipment when traveling from adventure to adventure. Available Blind Spot Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control with Full Stop, Forward Warning Collision with Active Braking and Rear Cross Detection are all fantastic features to ensure your Gladiator is operating at maximum safety levels. Both the Toyota 4Runner and the Jeep Gladiator have Tire Pressure Monitoring and impact-ready frames, designed to redirect energy away from the cab in case of a collision.

The 2019 Toyota 4Runner may have three rows of seating, but the Gladiator’s truck bed offers gracious storage, sans the seating. True to Jeep’s iconic design, the 2020 Gladiator looks just like your favorite Wrangler with a little more junk in the trunk. The 2019 4Runner maintains its legendary appeal with its design but doesn’t bring any revamped features to the table.
