Are you sitting at your desk dreaming of the scent of fresh pines and of summiting new mountains? If so, then it’s time for an adventure, and you’ll need the right ride to take you there. The 2023 Ford Bronco and the Toyota 4Runner have the market cornered when it comes to rugged SUVs, so which one should you choose?
The team at Sam Pack's Five Star Ford of Lewisville is here to give our Lewisville, Frisco, and The Colony, TX friends the answer.
SUVs like the Ford Bronco and the Toyota 4Runner are known for their powerful engines. Whether you’re just driving to work or hitting the trails, both models offer convenient features to spruce up your drives. Let’s find out which one can help you explore the roads less traveled.
Adventures are much more exciting when you know you can roam with complete ease and confidence. There are no limits when you choose the 2023 Ford Bronco or the Toyota 4Runner thanks to a 4×4 system. It sends power to all four wheels as needed to provide extra traction and control over unpredictable terrain.
In the Bronco, this feature comes standard, ensuring every model is just as rugged as the next. On the 4Runner, though, you’ll need to add on 4-wheel drive if you’d like to do some thrilling off-roading.
On the Ford Bronco, the 4x4 system is paired to a Terrain Management System™ with up to seven available G.O.A.T. Modes™ for added stability. Choose from modes like Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl to conquer whatever’s in your path.
You won’t be treated to the same selectable modes to curate traction and ruggedness with the Toyota 4Runner.
The 2023 Ford Bronco and the Toyota 4Runner have ample room for all your fellow hiking buddies to come along for the ride. However, it’s also important that every explorer stays comfortable throughout the entire journey.
While both SUVs have roomy cabins, everyone will probably prefer the more spacious dimensions of the Bronco…
As you can see, the Bronco has more overall space than the 4Runner in terms of headroom and legroom, making it the perfect ride for everyone on board.
Looking for the model with the most room throughout the cabin? Even rear-seat passengers will be able to relax in the Ford Bronco, which offers 41.1 inches of headroom and 36.3 inches of legroom in the second row.
In comparison, the Toyota 4Runner is a bit more cramped with just 38.6 inches of headroom and 32.9 inches of legroom for your second-row riders.
In addition to the power under the hood and space to stretch out, these SUVs also have plenty of interior technology features to show off. From connectivity to audio, the right technology can easily elevate your drives.
All your road trips will be much more enjoyable when you have the proper entertainment options by your side. In the 2023 Ford Bronco and the Toyota 4Runner, you’ll be able to connect your smartphone via Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ to access your curated playlists or favorite national park podcast.
In the Bronco, these features come standard as wireless so you can quickly connect and hit the road. You’ll need to remember your USB cord in the 4Runner, though, since a wireless option isn’t available.
Additionally, you’ll control your desired listening experience through an available 12-inch touchscreen in the Bronco. This large screen makes it easy to browse your music, connect your phone, and more.
Visibility may not be as clear on the 8-inch display in the 4Runner.
It’s clear that both SUVs have what it takes to tackle your travels around Lewisville, Frisco, and The Colony, TX and beyond. However, if you’re looking to really crush it out there on the trails, the Bronco is most likely the better option over the 4Runner.
