Off-Road Capabilities

It includes four-wheel drive as you’d expect complete with traction control systems. All in all, the 4Runner presents itself as an incredible off-roader. No matter how incredible an off-roading vehicle can be, other makes simply can’t match the capabilities of Jeep.

Trail rated tough from the get-go, the Wrangler Unlimited is prepared to conquer any challenge thrown in its way. With the 4Runner, you have to upgrade for the off-roading features, but the Wrangler Unlimited is ready to go with everything and more right from the beginning.
