The 2022 Grand Cherokee comes with some exciting updates for the new model year. It’s gotten an upgrade to its suspension, safety offerings, and even a new Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in lineup. The intrigue of the 4Runner's rugged build and off-roading capabilities will continue to impress for 2022, backed by a long-standing history of reliability and toughness.
From the ride height to exterior color options, this comparison will take you through the ins and outs of some of the unique features of these SUVs.
You'll also get to explore how customers have rated these vehicles and what extras they come with, like the 4Runner's ToyotaCare maintenance plan, which includes factory-scheduled maintenance for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Take a look at the 4Runner vs. Grand Cherokee and find the one that has the features you need. Published Date: 02/28/2022
Some would say these SUVs are just built different. How else would they be able to traverse mountains and boulders with ease?
Take on tough terrain with the 4Runner TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, and TRD Pro models, which come equipped with Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) and Crawl Control (CRAWL). The only Grand Cherokee models that have the comparable standard Selec-Terrain® System are the 2022 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and Summit Reserve.
When you're going over bumpy trails, the 4Runner TRD Pro's underbelly is protected by standard skid plates covering the engine, front suspension, fuel tanks, and transfer case. You'll need the 2022 Trailhawk edition of the Grand Cherokee for front suspension, fuel tank, and transfer case skid plate protection.
You also get added ride height from the 4Runner TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, and TRD Pro's boosted ground clearance of 9.6 inches. All other 4Runner models have a 9.0-inch ground clearance. The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, Summit, and Summit Reserve have 8.5 inches of ground clearance.
Make a stellar first impression with the Toyota 4Runner's unique exterior offerings.
Attract attention or blend in with your surroundings with the 4Runner's available color options. Get the bold Nautical Blue Metallic, Lime Rush or the out-of-this-world Lunar Rock. The Grand Cherokee color offerings are your more subdued standard options such as grays and reds.
All models of the 2022 4Runner also come standard with the added style and brightness of LED fog lights. They’re only available starting on the Grand Cherokee Limited.
If you're looking for a look that's also functional, both the Grand Cherokee and 4Runner come standard with roof rails. However, the 4Runner Trail Special Edition comes with a Yakima® LoadWarrior cargo basket for optimal storage of all your gear.
If your car isn't reliable, there's no fancy feature to cover it up. That's why all Toyotas are built on the platform of quality, durability, and reliability.
The ToyotaCare maintenance plan helps your 4Runner go the distance with factory-scheduled maintenance for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. This includes engine oil and filter changes, tire rotations, multi-point inspections, fluid level inspection and adjustments.
The newly introduced Jeep Wave® program covers your first three oil changes and tire rotations during the first 36 months of ownership.
While included maintenance is a nice touch, it's also important to factor in peer reviews. Customers are the harshest critics. They're also a good indicator whether a product is worth your time and money. Based on Kelley Blue Book® reviews from actual 2022 4Runner drivers, 90% of consumers would recommend this vehicle based on its above average ratings in categories like reliability, value, and quality. Only 80% of customers would recommend the 2021 Grand Cherokee, which received lower scores in the same areas. The 2022 Grand Cherokee does not yet have enough reviews on Kelley Blue Book® to be given a percentage.
Both of these SUVs offer performance features to improve your off-roading adventures, unique exterior styling, and maintenance plans to help keep your 4Runner or Grand Cherokee in top shape.
When it comes time to choose which vehicle to rely on for tough trails, the 4Runner has the height advantage. All 4Runner models have a higher ground clearance than any 2022 Grand Cherokee.
Plus, be seen on the road or in the wilderness with the 4Runner's fun color options, like Lime Rush, and standard LED fog lights.
