  • I don't know about the newer ones but Jeeps are known to turn over easily. Something about their front end.
  • 4 Runner
  • Both are great vehicles, but I am a 4runner person. This is my second. Love them!! Never had a break down, I have over 230,000 on mine, and still runs great. I picked this because I love the body style and the 22RE engines go forever. Toyota also holds their resale value well. Jeeps are great vehicles too. It just comes down to what a person likes. My next vehicle will be another 4runner.
  • it really depends on what you want to do with the truck and what condition their each in, I had a 94 cherokee with 250000 miles on the original engine and never had any problem with it, i sold it and its still running around town. also aftermarket parts for jeeps are much cheaper than toyota aftermarket parts. something to keep in mind if you want to lift it or whatever.
  • 4 Runner and agree with all the 4 runner comments. I drove my 1984 4R until it rusted out from under me. In 10 years it never didn't start and only cost me clutches, oil changes, tires and wiper blades. Savage off road capability too and regularly was pulling my buddies Fords and Chevys out of the ditches and gulches I crawled right through.
  • Toyota 4 Runner = about 1 million miles problem free Jeep Cherokee (Ha ha...pardon me!) = a break down every other month and having to junk it after 100k miles
  • Toyota experience: 250K on the first one before it was stolen. 307 on the second, then sold. Starting on my third. With the V8 it rocks. Father: 350 on first. 250 on second, then sold. 122 on current. They all go over anything. The first two went anywhere slowly. This one goes anywhere at any speed. :-D
  • I have a Grand Cherokee and adore it. Over 112k miles and still runs like a champ. also have a jeep wrangler that is in excellent condition. Jeeps are the only way to go, IMHO. Never any problems out of either of mine. And when I get my next vehicles, they will be Jeep products as well.
  • Toyota has the best reputation for dependability and reliability. Consumer Report Magazine lists just above every Toyota vehicle at the top of the list. I own a Toyota Solara and love it. If it has Toyota on it, it will be sitting in my driveway. The Japanese are always in the search for perfection and it shows in Toyotas. Can other car makers make that statement?
  • No, but that's only because I'm a car person. I like sedans and coupes.
  • toyota. You can't hardly kill one of those. They seem to run and run and run.... :)
  • Statistically, the 4runner is more likely to be reliable than the Cherokee. In terms of comfort, dynamics, etc., I suspect they are relatively equivalent.
  • The Toyota 4Runner, hands down. I'v had one for ten years and it's still in like-new condition. I've never had a problem with it.
  • 4 runner, it's a toyota, you can do anything with a toyota and they are extremely hard to break, so hands down 4 runner.
  • I've had 6 Toyotas the first was a 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser,We thought about painting in yellow and calling it "Caterpillar".It wasn't fast and it wasn't pretty but it NEVER FAILED to take me where I wanted to go and get me back...
  • In my opinion, the quality and durability of a Toyota is much better.
  • i owned a 96 5.2L jeep grand cherokee laredo and it was my favorite vehicle ever. that thing was a tank in the winter. as for all these people that think toyotas are so great. chreokees do have problems. the older ones with the trannys. i worked at a toyota dealership for over a year and saw a hella lot of cars and trucks come in there with astronomical repair bills. jeeps are waaay more comfortable. they are both awsome vehicles but the dependablity of toyotas are extreamly over estimated and the fact that you can just about guarantee the repair bill is gonna me at least 1.5 to 2 times more you gotta take the jeep.
  • id buy the toyota
  • Toyota by far. I have a 1985 Toyota pickup with a straight axle. The engine in the Toyota can run over 300,000 miles and still run strong and there are just insane offroad truck.
  • jeep cherokee is the my choice simply because of the aftermarket support as well as the solid front axel and mine is running fine at 100k and it is performs better off road compared to my friends toyota pickup.
  • Ive Had a Jeep Cherokee. Nice car, but got poor gas milage. Ive heard that if your going to buy a car, you want a honda or a toyota because they last the longest and get you where you need to go, so i believe id buy the Toyota 4runner next
  • Grand Cherokee. But it depends on what you are doing with it. Hauling kids to soccer, then perahps the Toyota is a better fit. Home Depot or real off road, get the Jeep.
  • neither
  • depends on each year if there is lifts on each one or the tires but if there equal definitely a 4runner the body style is way better looking easier and cheaper to fix and plus a lot less people own them so it makes you more unique
  • for me I would never own any 4x4, but from what I have read and seen and been told by friends who have 4x4's ...the Toyota wins hands down... better built, don't catch fire ( and there are many many reports of the Jeep doing this ), better levels of comfort , better backup service.
  • toyota over jeep anyday ,more dependable
  • Unfortunately the Toyota is the best. The problem with the Cherokee is the front suspension is terrible. Noise and shimmy problems out the wazzo.
  • 4Runner Hands down! I've owned mine for like 10 years now. I bought it new and have continuously beat the shit out of it. It is very reliable and looks great still!
  • Jeep Cherokee... i like the 4x4 1987 jeep cherokee leradeo 4.0 inline 6... not a fan of toyota there meant to stay on the road
  • I am an american I'd buy an american vehicle. The first digit in the 17 digit long VIN code stands for "country of origin" A '1' is made in USA, 2 is canada, 3 is Mexico, J is japan, etc Hence all vehicles I've bought have bees 1's
  • cherokee you'll easily get 200,000 miles
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee.
  • The a Toyota 4runner. This is not even close. I will not by a Chrysler product, their quality is too low. Toyota has much better quality and resale value.
  • The toyota is a better truck
  • The 4 runner for sure, hands down, better overall! +5pts. =)
