Plenty of customers come into Anchorage Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram unsure of which model to go for. In fact, many Anchorage, Alaksa drivers are caught between two SUVs; the Jeep Cherokee and the Toyota 4Runner. While both vehicles have their perks, there is a reason why so many drivers choose the sleek and sporty Jeep Cherokee over the Toyota 4RUnner. Not only is it a more versatile option, but it also allows you to get more for your budget. Compare the Jeep Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner above, then call our Anchorage, AK Jeep dealership to schedule a test drive and experience the iconic 4X4 technology behind the wheel.

If you're looking for a versatile SUV that can commandeer city streets and unpaved roads alike, the Jeep Cherokee will check off all your boxes. The Toyota 4Runner may be known as an off-road SUV, but it doesn't fare as well with tight parking spots and trips to crowded downtown areas. Take for example the turning radius; the Toyota 4Runner has more than double the turning radius of the Jeep Cherokee. The Jeep Cherokee has more of a compact exterior so that you can still comfortably fit five passengers without having a tough time in the city. The Toyota 4Runner does have more seating capabilities with non-standard configurations, but is it really worth over $11,000 more? Plus, if you opt for different trim levels on the Jeep Cherokee, you can truly get the right fit for your off-road excursions.

Another important thing to consider is the performance of both vehicles. The Jeep Cherokee has a significantly better fuel economy than the Toyota 4Runner, saving you plenty of money down the road. This is partly due to the Jeep Cherokee offering a standard I-4 engine, whereas the Toyota 4Runner has a standard V6 engine. Keep in mind that the Jeep Cherokee also offers a V6 engine, so you can get the right engine for your lifestyle. The Jeep Cherokee is known for its excellent off-road abilities, comfortable seats, and an intuitive infotainment system, whereas, the Toyota 4Runner has a lackluster transmission, a bumpy ride, and a dull interior that leaves you wanting more. Plus, if you want blind-spot monitoring or lane-keeping assist, the Jeep Cherokee has both of those as optional features. Plus, you can choose from a heating steering wheel, heated front seats, and rain-sensing wipers to make every drive more enjoyable with the Jeep Cherokee.

Ready to take the next step and experience rugged, off-road capabilities like never before? The team at Anchorage Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is waiting to assist. Whether you're from Wasilla or Palmer, give our local Anchorage, AK dealership a call to learn more about our 4X4 fleet, then schedule a test drive with one of our new or used Jeep Cherokee SUVs!
