Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Toyota 4Runner

  • The pre-production models we drove had the high-grade interiors Toyota is known for, with visually and tactically pleasing materials and logical, well-placed switchgear.

    - AutoWeek
  • Wheelbase has grown by 4 inches to provide for smoother, more car-like ride and handling in a sport-ute built on a pickup platform.

  • Front and rear legroom are up by 2 and 1 1/2 inches respectively, while shoulder and hiproom have increased between 4 and 5 inches front and rear.

  • ...the Toyota 4Runner uses a compilation of bulging fender flares, blocky front and rear bumpers and a wide-slat grille to convey its message of stylish off-road capability.

    - Kelley Blue Book
  • A new Toyota V6 delivers more power than last year's engine for exceptionally good acceleration performance. And a V8 is also available for the 4Runner for the first time.

What reviewers liked least about the Toyota 4Runner

  • What 4Runner doesn't come with is three rows of seats or a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.

  • Our only major complaint concerns the climate controls. Although they look like traditional dial controls, they work more like joysticks, requiring you to press the pad in the direction of your preferred vent location or temperature.


Toyota 4Runner Comparisons

  • With a maximum cargo capacity of just 75.1 cubic feet, the 4Runner still lags behind the Ford Explorer, Nissan Pathfinder and Dodge Durango which offer 88, 85 and 88 cubic feet respectively.


Best one-liner about the Toyota 4Runner

  • The new 4Runner's chassis boasts enough electronics to stock a Best Buy.
