When it comes to mid-size SUVs, the new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is hard to beat. With four available powertrains and a slew of trim levels to pick from, this all-terrain ride leaves its competitors (including the 2021 Toyota 4Runner) in the dust.
Popping the hood of a standard Grand Cherokee, you will find the 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Pumping out 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, this ride can tow up to 2,812 kg (6,200 lbs) with the proper equipment.
On the other hand, the rival Toyota 4Runner houses a 4.0-litre V6 motor that delivers 270 hp. Partnered with a less-responsive 5-speed automatic transmission, it can only manage to pull up to 2,267 kg (5,000 lbs) - falling short of the Grand Cherokee's impressive power.
