Ford Explorer vs. Toyota 4Runner

Discover What Separates the Ford Explorer from its Competitors

Let's face it: when you're looking for an SUV, there are plenty of options out there from which to choose. When you're comparing two popular stalwarts such as the Ford Explorer and the Toyota 4Runner the decision often comes down to certain details that make one stand out from the other. At Fox Ford Lincoln, we've found that the Ford Explorer is a top choice for our customers in the Chicago area due the way the Terrain Management System capably takes on snow, sand, mud and good old pavement.  Let's see how these two midsize SUVs compare:

Ford Explorer vs. Toyota 4Runner

  • The Explorer starts with a lower MSRP, so you can expect your monthly payment to be a little lower. Add in the fact that the Explorer's EPA-estimated 24 highway mpg bests the 4Runner's EPA-estimated 21 (estimated city mpg are the same for both vehicles), and your fuel costs should run lower each month also.
  • Not only does the Explorer offer standard seating for seven people (the 4Runner ranges from five to seven, depending on trim level), it also delivers a much roomier, more comfortable experience to the people riding in the cabin. With more headroom, hip room and shoulder room for both front- and rear-seat passengers, the Explorer really stands out with greater legroom front and back -- in fact, folks in the rear enjoy almost seven inches more leg room in the Explorer than they do in the 4Runner!
  • The Explorer has also earned a better safety rating in NHTSA crash test results, earning more 5-star safety ratings in four categories: Overall, Front Crash Overall, Front Crash Passenger and Side Pole Driver. It's clear that Ford makes your safety a priority.

When you're ready to experience the Ford Explorer for yourself, please contact a member of our team at your convenience. We're proud to serve drivers from the greater Chicago, Lincoln Park, Logan Square, Lakeview and Bucktown areas.
