Any off-road SUV can tackle many different types of terrain. A true icon can also hold you in the lap of luxury, no matter how far off the map you roam around New Orleans and Metairie, LA.
Both the 2023 Land Rover Discovery and 2022 Toyota 4Runner toe the line between comfort and capability. So, that begs the question: Which one is the ideal fit for your next adventure? That’s what our team at Land Rover New Orleans is here to answer.

The Toyota 4Runner says it’s the captain of the off-road. That may be true, but the Land Rover Discovery is the commander of all roads. Its standard All-Wheel Drive system is specifically engineered to provide the ideal level of traction on slick streets and off-road paths. The available part-time 4WD system of the 4Runner is best suited to off-road trails.
When you really get into the rough stuff, both SUVs come with vast arsenals of off-road performance features to help you chart the path. They share:
Adaptive Dynamics is one system that you’ll only get with the Discovery. Whether you’re rolling over a speed bump or rumbling over rocks, it’ll help provide precise control and optimal ride comfort. It constantly analyzes driver input and road conditions and automatically adjusts the damper settings accordingly.
Does your family want to come along for the ride? There’s seating for up to seven in both models. Have them pack their bags! They’ll enjoy all the luxurious amenities equipped in the Discovery. The available 4-zone climate control will let everyone find their ideal comfort level. The 4Runner is only available with dual-zone automatic climate control.
Connectivity is second nature to both SUVs. When you’re way off the grid, they’ll help you stay in touch with civilization. The 11.4-inch touchscreen in the 2023 Discovery will make apps easier to control than the 8-inch display in the 4Runner. Both still give you access to:
What’s the one thing every good road trip needs? A family sing-along, of course! The available JBL® sound system in the 4Runner is tons of fun, but only the available Meridian™ Surround Sound System in the Discovery comes with Trifield™ technology. It integrates the sound from each speaker for a truly immersive experience.
Confidence is key with your family in tow. Due to this, the Land Rover Discovery comes with a bevy of driver-assistance features to give you all the peace of mind you need.
It comes standard with:
The Toyota 4Runner includes a similar set of safety features with Toyota Safety Sense™ P. A Driver Condition Monitor, however, is only available with the Discovery. When it detects drowsy or distracted driving, you’ll receive a warning, so you can refocus.
The Discovery also comes with driver-assistance features that help on the trails. Whether you’re fording through a small stream or crawling through a floodplain, Wade Sensing will alert you when the water gets too deep, so you can find a more suitable path.
The competition was close, but with superior safety features, interior luxury, and an all-terrain performance, the 2023 Land Rover Discovery pushed past the competition.
