2020 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2020 Ford Explorer in Hopkinsville, KY

You wouldn't think that "rugged" and "luxurious" would be compatible words. But when describing the 2020 Toyota 4Runner, they certainly are. While the 4Runner was designed to take on the toughest of trails, it was also designed with your comfort and safety in mind. This full-size SUV can boast impressive off-road performance, but it also offers advanced technology features and, of course, the security of Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P).

Wondering how this impressive SUV compares to the rest? Here's an example. Take a look at how the 2020 Toyota 4Runner and 2020 Ford Explorer compare below!

2020 FORD


Standard 4.0-liter V6 DOHC 24-Valve with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence

Available 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine

Fog Lights

Available integrated LED fog lights

Available LED fog lamps

Lane-Keeping System

Yes, there are a few similarities in seating and safety features, as well as a moonroof option and available Amazon Alexa compatibility. But the Explorer doesn't offer the convenience of a windshield wiper de-icer that the 4Runner offers for those cold mornings in the mountains. The Explorer offers more engine options, but the standard and only engine on the 4Runner is the most impressive of the two SUVs.
