Great vehicle if you like the outdoor lifestyle. I love driving with all the windows and sunroof open. Feels like a Jeep but without the noise and rides much better. The V6 engine is weak once you start to load up the vehicle. Although it does have great off the line torque. The ride is truck-like but I am happy with it. The reliability and build quality is quite good. As long as you keep a good maintenance, this vehicle will practically run forever. Lots of aftermarket upgrades for the vehicle. I end up adding a TRD supercharger, URD fuel mods, Doug Thorley header, TRD exhaust, IPT valve body upgrade, 32" A/T tires, Bilstein shocks, and offroad armor. Overall, it is a very capable vehicle.
Roll down rear window, TRD supercharger upgrade (along with URD fuel mods), good ground clearance (stock) for off-roading, factory electric rear locker, multi-mode 4WD, upper sunglasses holder, and lots of power plugins.
Weak stock V6 engine, need factory upgraded shocks or a TRD option for 4Runner, fuel economy (but then what do you expect when you buy a 4200#+ SUV), stock premium stereos are ok but not great, and better sound deafening inside vehicle.
