2007 Toyota 4RunnerTravis Sluys - San Diego, CA05/31/2016
The 4Runner is an incredibly reliable car, comfortable ride and it will last a long time. I bought this car because I needed something bigger to tow my boat and it tows my 19' powerboat with no problems at all. It has a 5,000lb tow capacity and I'm well below that so no worries. It's a great car, the limited edition has more technology than some newer models. These things hold their value and you will own it for years. Great purchase.
Very nice off road/on road SUV
2015 Toyota 4RunnerAlex Karlov - Los Angeles, CA02/27/2016
If you are looking for medium size Sport SUV that capable to bring you to the camping, fishing, hunting, skiing and other sport activities, you probably won't find anything better than 4Runner. I like that this year model has much better interior ergonomic. I could not fit in front seat of 4Runner of 2001. Now I fill very comfortable in this SUV. Cargo space is much bigger than I expected. I had Dodge Durango before this SUV and it is bigger than 4Runner. But when I packed for my vacation trip to the other state, I was pleased with size of the cargo space. It handling is pretty good and I did several long trips on 4Runner. Great SUV. I don't have any complains
A great SUV
2015 Toyota 4RunnerDavid Hansen - Hesperia, CA01/06/2016
Previously I had a 2005 4Runner with a V8 engine and I haul a large utility trailer. This 2015 model year only has a V6, so I was concerned about trailer-pulling capability. But, no problem. They managed to get as much horse power out of the V6 as the V8 had. Mine is also a 4-wheel drive and is great for off-roading. On the regular roads and highways, it drives great and smooth. I love this 4Runner.
Toyota 4Runner Overview
Though it is definitely a mid-size SUV, the other drivers would never mistake the Toyota 4Runner for a family vehicle; it's large, rugged, and designed to tackle the toughest off-road obstacles. The 4Runner has a reputation for capability, longevity, and sturdiness that other competitors have grown to lack. The 4Runner remains a vehicle built to tow anything and conquer any terrain.
Toyota 4Runner History
The Toyota 4Runner was introduced in 1984. The update in 1996 was the first to include the flexibility to have either a four-cylinder or a V6 engine. The 4runner was again redesigned in 2003, this time becoming significantly larger while still retaining its trademark body-on-frame design. This changed its class as a compact SUV to a mid-size SUV. This was also the year that a 4.7L V8 engine was available as an option for the 4Runner. Since the current generation arrived in 2010, the changes to the vehicle have been minor, specific to features.
How It Drives
True to its truck inspiration, the 4Runner stands tall. The vehicle will feel weighty with the steering to match. The V6 engine works to accelerate the heavy vehicle quickly while remaining staunchly quiet throughout acceleration and standard on-road driving.
Used Toyota 4Runner Value
Most of the Toyota 4Runners competitors have gone extinct, leaving either it or the Jeep Grand Cherokee as the only options left for large, trailblazing SUVs. The Toyota 4Runner is one of the only SUVs that is built body-on-frame. Though it leads the pack in terms of sturdiness, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a superior driving experience.
Toyota 4Runner Standard Features
The Toyota 4Runner's core is the 4.0L V6 engine. Automatic transmission is the only powertrain available. As in every 4Runner since 1984, you can lower the rear liftgate window. Newer models of the 4Runner come equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and navigation features.
