2018 Toyota 4Runner vs 2018 Subaru Outback

While most of our customers come to our dealership looking for a new commuter vehicle or family hauler, other customers are looking for a model that is a little rougher around the edges and perfect to take off the pavement. For those customers, the 2018 Toyota 4Runner may be just right. Today, we are stacking the 2018 Toyota 4Runner up against the 2018 Subauru Outback to see which model offers more capability for the money. Learn what both models have to offer with specs and an off-road feature comparison below.

Off-Road Performance

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner may cost a little bit more up front at the dealership, but your money will be well spent on an all-around more capable utility vehicle. For starters, as you can see from the specs above, the 2018 Toyota 4Runner offers quite a bit more power and a much larger base engine than the 2018 Subaru Outback. If you plan to do a lot of off-roading, which you probably are if you are looking at these two models, more power can really make a big difference when trying to navigate tough terrain. The 2018 Toyota 4Runner also offers more than 15 extra cubic feet of space in the back meaning that no matter where you are headed you will have plenty of room to bring along whatever gear you need. The interior of the 2018 Subaru Outback can get a little cramped with trying to haul passengers and the gear that comes with them. Both the 2018 4Runner and the 2018 Outback can handle themselves on smooth pavement or off the beaten path thanks to high ride heights and some specialty off-road ready features. However, only the 2018 4Runner is available with Toyota-exclusive features like the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, multi-terrain select, and Crawl Control that help you conquer anything in your path. It's our pick for the best off-road ready SUV in the class. Learn more about the 2018 Toyota 4Runner at the Fox Toyota dealership in Clinton, Tennessee.
