At first, second and third glances, there's no denying the upper hand that the 2018 4Runner holds over its Grand Cherokee counterpart. For starters, you'll be treated to better baseline power, fuel efficiency and cargo volume, and with two available four-wheel drive systems (with Crawl Control and a Dynamic Suspension system), the 4Runner does a much better job of accommodating your travels than the Grand Cherokee can claim. Better yet, as soon as you jump into its ultra-comfortable interior, you'll get app integration, Integrated Navigation and a 15-speaker JBL® premium audio system, giving the 4Runner a more comprehensive blend of power and savviness than the Grand Cherokee can claim. Add this to a wealth of driver assistance innovation as part of the Toyota Star Safety System™ and the choice in this comparison is clear; for whatever you're trying to achieve, the 4Runner can handle it, keeping it wild every step of the way.
