Toyota 4Runner


In an automotive world that caters to crossovers, the Toyota 4Runner SUV is a purebred in a dying breed. It's a mid-size SUV with body-on-frame architecture and seating for up to seven (when equipped with an optional third-row seat). Offered with a V-6 powertrain, the 4Runner faces competition from the Jeep Grand Cherokee, among others. As one of the market’s few mid-size SUVs with a bona-fide off-road passport, ready to take you beyond where the pavement ends, the 4Runner is ideally suited for drivers with an appetite for adventure and a tolerance for its sometimes-clumsy street manners. It comes in a bevy of configurations for a range of budgets.
