Toyota 4Runner Overview
The 4Runner falls short of most modern SUVs. One of the few remaining truck-based SUVs, it's great for off-roading, and its rough-sounding 4.0-liter V6 is powerful and relatively fuel-efficient. But the ride is unsettled, and handling is clumsy. The body leans a good deal while cornering, and the bobbing and bouncing chips away at driver confidence. Limited-trim versions have a tighter suspension with somewhat better control, but at the expense of a stiffer ride. A high step-in and low ceiling compromise both access and driving position. The SR5's 4WD system is part-time only. A third-row seat is optional, and the power-retractable rear window is handy. Reliability is well above average, but it scores too low to be recommended.
