The performance of the 3.4LV6 is better than other Toyota SUV/Trucks. For speed/acceleration junkies, TRD has a supercharger that bolts right onto this engine and still fits under the . Fuel economy is better than average 15-17 MPG. Install the TRD supercharger and aftermarket non-rubber sway bar bushings! Toyota has the best lines and highest ground clearence in its class. No one in the midsized SUV market even comes close to Toyota build quality and relaibility.
My favorite feature in every generation of 4Runners is the rear sliding glass window.
Change the running boards to more functional. Bring back the truck style tailgate, or a combination liftgate/tailgate like the LandCruiser.
