2007 4Runner Overview

Bucking the trend for mid-size SUVs, the 2007 Toyota 4Runner is no car-based crossover station wagon.It's a traditional sport utility built on a rugged ladder frame with a solid rear axle.It's a truck.While some consider this design dated when compared to the latest SUVs or CUVs, which use unit-body construction and independent rear suspensions, the 4Runner's more traditional design gives it an advantage in long-term durability and on truly rugged terrain.

Yet the 4Runner is no rough-rider.It's quite comfortable around town and on the highway, with a nice ride quality, almost luxurious.An optional linked shock-absorber system called X-REAS further improves handling in sweeping, high-speed turns.Active safety features including ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, traction control, and electronic stability control are all standard.

The 2007 Toyota 4Runner carries over with no changes from 2006.

Though the basic design may be traditional (relatively), the 4Runner features the latest in off-road electronic technology, including Hill Start Assist and Downhill Assist Control.You can't truly appreciate the 4Runner until you drive over rugged terrain.This is a truly amazing vehicle in the muck.Having the 4Runner walk you down a steep, muddy incline with both feet off the pedals, the system selectively applying the brakes to individual wheels as needed, is an impressive display of technology and engineering.And it's just as impressive going uphill, maximizing the smallest bit of available traction.Both full- and part-time four-wheel drive is available, but even the full-time system comes with a locking function for when the going gets sloppy.Add that technology to its highly capable suspension, and the 4Runner will go just about anywhere.

Whether you choose the standard V6 or the V8, the 4Runner offers responsive performance.The V8 boosts the 4Runner's tow rating to 7,300 pounds and we recommend it for drivers who tow.Those who don't tow or only tow light trailers, such as an ATV, should be more than happy with the V6, which delivers excellent performance.Both engines benefit from a sophisticated variable-valve setup and drive-by-wire throttle, delivering strong, responsive acceleration out on the highway.Both engines also benefit from a five-speed automatic transmission.

The 4Runner is noted for its quality construction, durability and reliability.Look up QDR in the automotive dictionary and you might see a picture of a Toyota 4Runner.

Inside, the 4Runner is roomy and comfortable.An optional third-row seat expands the passenger capacity to seven, but the seat can be folded or removed to gain additional cargo space.The optional voice-activated GPS navigation system includes a rear-mounted video camera that lets the driver back to within an inch of the vehicle behind when parallel parking and can help the driver spot a small child before backing up.Bluetooth technology is available as an option as is a factory-installed rear-seat DVD entertainment system.

If your weekend involves driving over rugged, punishing terrain yet you want a vehicle that won't punish you in everyday use, the 4Runner is an excellent choice.It's also a good alternative for owners who tow but don't want a full-size SUV.
