: Toyota 4runner serves as a daily family hauler and can seat seven people. It also has strong off-road capability and a healthy towing capacity. As a truck-based SUV, the 4runner is a good option for those who want something with a little more attitude and presence than the standard crop of car-like crossover, including Toyota’s own Rav4 and Highlander.
The tall ride height of Toyota 4runner makes getting in and out somewhat difficult, though side steps are available to help out. The 4runner has easy to understand controls and a highly adjustable driving position that affords a commanding view ahead. There’s enough space in both the front and back rows and the visibility to the sides and back is surprisingly good because of the 4Runner’s squared-off shape and windows.
The performance of Toyota 4Runner is adequate. It’s not terribly fast but the engine and transmission are smooth. It can hold its own in traffic and the brakes are a bit jumpy. The 4runner turns in quickly and provides a pleasing amount of stability for a truck-based SUV. The 4Runner becomes a superstar for exploring and adventure camping. Its multimode 4WD system, high ground clearance and special TRD features makes it capable of taking on rocky trails.
