Drive Confidently in a Stylish New 2020 Jeep Wrangler SUV

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is available in 12 trims, all of which offer 2-door and 4-door configurations. The 2020 Toyota 4Runner has only 8 trim options, and if you appreciate the iconic and sporty look of a 2-door SUV, you won't find it in the Toyota 4Runner lineup. 
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler also offers more versatility. It has multiple open-air options via a standard easy-to-remove soft top and available removable hardtop, one-touch power top, fold-down windshield, and removable doors. All of these features make the 2020 Jeep Wrangler a functional SUV to take off the beaten path and into an exciting outdoor adventure.

Navigate the Toughest Terrains with a Roam-Anywhere Wrangler

Both the 2020 Toyota 4Runner and the 2020 Jeep Wrangler are marketed as off-road SUVS, but only the 2020 Jeep Wrangler has passed rigorous outdoor tests to earn the Trail Rated® badge. By exceeding the highest standards of durability and strength, the extremely capable 2020 Jeep Wrangler is trail rated for: 

  • Traction 
  • Water fording 
  • Maneuverability 
  • Articulation 
  • Ground clearance 
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler has three available 4X4 systems, so you can have impressive traction and full control in any terrain.
