Choosing between the many different SUV makes and models available on the market today can be daunting. Here at Toyota of Alvin, we’re always looking for ways to make things easier for our clients. That’s why today we’re comparing the 2018 Toyota 4Runner to the 2018 Ford Explorer. First of all, both of these SUVs can fit up to seven with available third row options. Both have hefty V6 engines and comparable horsepower. Even though these specs are similar, let’s talk about some key differences between 4Runner and Explorer.
Notice that the 4Runner has a 88.8 cubic feet of interior cargo space versus only 81.8 for the Ford Explorer. If you have a growing family, or you use your vehicle to take longer trips, you might want to consider 4Runner’s large cargo capacity. Did you know that every 4Runner has an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support? That’s sure to come in handy during lengthy travels. Many drivers today also rely on their onboard instrument screens. 4Runner has a large, 6.1 inch high resolution display and technology that makes the vehicle’s gauges simple to read at any time of the day.
We like the clean contemporary lines of both the 4Runner and the Explorer. Both SUVS had a redesign to their exterior this year. Whether you like 4Runner’s boldly angular front grille or Explorer’s more geometric look is mostly a matter of personal preference. However, 4Runner pulls ahead in some significant ways. For example, take 4Runner’s projector beam headlights, which provide a stronger more focused beam than conventional headlights. If you like heading off road, the all wheel drive system offered by Toyota has superior active traction features like A-TRAC and KDSS/CRAWL.
