While almost every other midsized SUV has moved to car-based construction, the 4Runner remains an old-school, body-on-frame SUV, good for off-roading but not much else. The ride is unsettled and handling is clumsy. Off-road is where the 4Runner excels. Ground clearance is generous and underbody skid plates are standard.

Best Version to Get

The SR5 Premium model adds desirable features, such as heated front seats and navigation. Opting for any of the TRD trims brings a stiffer suspension which only further degrades the rough ride. The top-shelf Limited model is the way to go if you want leather seats.
