One of the biggest factors that goes into buying a vehicle is the engine underneath the hood. You will find that the 2019 Toyota 4Runner SR5 features a 4.0-liter V6 engine behind the grille, which has a clear size advantage over the 3.6-liter V6 engine you will find in the Jeep. When it comes to protecting you from vehicle theft, you will find that the 4Runner has a leg up in this department as well. This SUV features an engine immobilizer feature standard, which can shut your engine off completely in the event that your vehicle is stolen.
You won’t find this feature in the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, so you may be out of luck if your vehicle gets stolen. This Toyota model also comes with a front knee airbag that will activate in the event of an accident. The Jeep doesn’t come outfitted with this airbag. The 4Runner also comes with a standard navigation system that is only optional for this Grand Cherokee, along with a premium radio that isn’t even available in the Jeep. Come into your Grand Junction Colorado Toyota dealership so you can test out these features for yourself.

If you have a larger family, then the 4Runner is the clear choice for you. The Toyota is 71.5 inches tall, while the Grand Cherokee Laredo only has a height of 69.3 inches. This taller body means that the Toyota also has the advantage when it comes to EPA total interior volume, bringing you 144.5 cu. ft. as opposed to the 140.5 cu. ft. of interior volume that you will find within the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.
