2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2018 Toyota 4Runner to Drive in Fishers, IN

 

The Jeep brand has made a name for itself as a provider of rugged, reliable vehicles with unparalleled performance ratings. Multiple engine options for the Grand Cherokee include the 6.2 liter V8 engine boasting 707 HP. Ruggedness meets refinement in the 2018 model, which features an Infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Grand Cherokee also features excellent gas mileage, especially when driving on the highway.

The Toyota 4Runner is known for having great resale value; however the cost of a 2018 model is far higher than the benefits it provides. If you’re looking for a comfortable, stylish and easy ride with the durability and off-roading capability that only a Jeep can offer, the 2018 Grand Cherokee is the best option out there.
