As you can see, these models have a good deal in common. Both provide similar choices for seating and safety, and both offer a moonroof and Amazon Alexa capability. What the Explorer doesn’t have, though, is the convenient windshield wiper de-icer that comes standard on the 4Runner. You’ll be thankful for this feature in frosty weather! It’s also worth mentioning that while the Explorer offers more engine options (depending on which trim you choose), the single standard engine on the 4Runner is the most impressive of the two SUVs.
