Toyota 4Runner
More Vehicles from this Manufacturer


It’s not the handsomest sport utility vehicle on the trail, but it’s one of the most rugged, allowing you to go just about anywhere that a comparable Jeep Wrangler Unlimited can travel. The four-wheel-drive option gets you a part-time system with a two-speed transfer case (it has a low range) in the SR5. Meanwhile, the luxury-skewed Limited’s 4×4 option is a full-time unit with a locking center differential controlled by a console switch. The standard 270-horsepower V6 isn’t too hard on gas, considering 4Runner’s 4,400-pound curb weight (perhaps an update to a six-speed automatic transmission from the current five-speed would help in this regard). Hill Start Assist that keeps the 4Runner from rolling backward when stopped on an incline and Hill Descent Control that prevents unintended out-of-control acceleration on a downward slope are standard. For maximum off-road capability, the rugged and sporty TRD Pro Series comes with TRD-spec springs, Bilstein-brand remote-reservoir shocks, unique 17-inch black alloy wheels, and more aggressive Nitto-brand off-road tires.
