Toyota 4Runner Overview

The 4Runner falls a little short of most modern SUVs. It's good for off-roading, and its rough-sounding 4.0-liter V6 is powerful and relatively fuel-efficient. The ride is unsettled, though, and handling is clumsy. The body leans a good deal while cornering and the bobbing and bouncing chips away at driver confidence. A high step-in and low ceiling compromise both access and driving position, and interior fit and finish is unimpressive. 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. 2014 brings some cosmetic changes.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
