Our Take on the 2014 Toyota 4Runner

Mechanically and structurally, the 2014 4Runner is practically identical to the 2013 model. With the exception of a new cross member and stiffer brake lines, all the changes for this generation are cosmetic.  In the market, the traditional ladder frame and one engine option make the 4Runner...

2014 Toyota 4Runner Reviews

Cars.com Expert Reviews

The updated 2014 Toyota 4Runner's greatest strength is how well it can be transformed into a well-equipped family mover, a down-and-dirty off-roader or a refined luxury four-door SUV. Although this is technically a new, sixth-generation 4Runner, every significant change is purely cosmetic. The chassis and powertrain are unchanged from the fifth-generation model, so it's a few desig... Read full review for the 2014 Toyota 4 Runner

A Solid SUV

by Seasoned Sport Utility Owner from West Virginia on June 15, 2014

Good value in the mid 30k range. Dealer was most accommodating as the 4 Runner we wanted was located in another state, which posed no problem for this dealer. However, local Toyota refused to use the ... Read Full Review

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
