Off-Road Features

How do off-road features compare between the two vehicles? Both the Wrangler and the 4Runner provide 4×4 systems and off-road capabilities, but Carmel adventurers know you can’t beat a Jeep Wrangler that comes standard with: 

  • Trail Rated® Badge: These Jeep Wrangler configurations have been tested for impressive articulation, ground clearance, water fording, maneuverability, and traction. 
  • Tow Hooks: Forged steel frame-mounted tow hooks can help pull a fellow driver out of a situation where their vehicle couldn’t overcome the terrain.
