Toyota 4Runner – Dinosaur or Long-Lived Hero?

The good folks at Car and Driver have taken another look at the Toyota 4Runner and have very little good to say about one of Toyota’s best selling vehicles.  

On paved roads, the 4Runner drives like the Jurassic SUV that it is. There’s a huge amount of body roll and brake dive and plenty of play in the steering rack, and the V-6 produces an intake roar that will make you nostalgic for the 1990s. The five-speed automatic transmission—yes, it really does have only five speeds—shifts sluggishly and hunts around on the highway, meaning it’s difficult to make the most of the 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque.
