But how do you know which one of these options is the best for your specific needs?

We'll break down all of the features of each vehicle, so you can compare them side by side and decide which is best for your trips around Emmaus, Allentown, Bethlehem, and beyond.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited vs Toyota 4Runner: Overview

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is unique in that it's offered in more than one body style: You can opt for a 2-door, 4-passenger option or a 4-door, 5-passenger option, known as the Unlimited. On top of that, you can get either of those body styles in three different trim levels, plus additional special models based on those trims. A vinyl convertible roof is standard on all trims, so you can take the top down for an exhilarating breeze. The Toyota 4Runner is available in six trim levels, and doesn't offer a convertible top.

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes with standard 4-wheel drive, while the 4Runner comes with standard rear-wheel drive and the option to upgrade to 4-wheel drive for improved handling and traction.
