2019 Cherokee vs 4Runner: Engine Specifications
Looking for an SUV with plenty of get-up-and-go right out of the gate? The 2019 Cherokee and 4Runner can provide with powerful V6 engines under their hoods. In the Jeep SUV, the available Pentastar® V6 serves up 271 horsepower for a robust driving experience.
The 4Runner powers through just as well, with 270 horsepower from its brawny V6. In both vehicles, you’ll have no problem accelerating from a stop or merging with fast-moving traffic.
Looking for a fuel-efficient excursion? This is where the Cherokee really shines. That same Pentastar® V6 offers up to an EPA-estimated 29 highway MPG. The V6 in the Toyota, unfortunately, tops out at just 21 highway MPG.
Technology: Connectivity for Your Next Adventure
Whether you’re taking on the trails or stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, you’ll want connectivity features to keep you in touch with the outside world.
The Uconnect® (Jeep) and Entune™ (Toyota) infotainment systems are equipped with many such features. You’ll find available navigation on both, so you can get intuitive directions to your destination.
Unfortunately, the small size of the 4Runner touchscreen (6.1 inches) hinders its usability a bit. The much larger available 8.4-inch touchscreen in the Jeep makes it easier to see maps and control functions. The Uconnect® system alone offers Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ for smartphone integration, giving it yet another leg up.
Advanced SUV Safety Features
What safety features will you find in the 2019 Cherokee and 4Runner? Both are equipped with a standard rearview camera, so you can see what’s happening behind you when you need to back up. Front and rear parking sensors are also available in both vehicles.
When it comes to safety, that’s where the similarities end, however. While Toyota is generally known for its safety technologies, you won’t find any other driver-assist features in the 4Runner. The Jeep SUV, on the other hand, offers a vast slate of available features, including:
- Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection
- Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking
- LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
