I've recently driven both the Jeep and the Toyota. My feeling is the Jeep is at least one generation ahead. Toyota is still pushing an older 6-speed automatic and an older V6 engine. That said, Toyota has the distince edge in reliability. Jeep, at the upper trim levels, has the edge in style and luxury. One caution: check out TrueDelta reliability data on the new Jeep diesel power train. It is a very expensive option that seems to be problematic.
