Review of the 2001 Toyota 4Runner

  • A likeable SUV that reminds you, for better or for worse, of its truck-based origins.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Great crash-test scores, roomy interior, truck-tough underpinnings, power hatch glass.

  • Cons

    Hard to climb in and out of, dated dashboard design, weak V6 engine, truck-like ride quality and handling.

  • What's New for 2001

    Base models have been dropped, leaving Limited and SR5 trim levels equipped with a standard automatic transmission, Vehicle Skid Control (VSC), traction control and ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and BrakeAssist. All 4Runners have power door locks this year, as well as a prewired trailer hitch harness, a modified grille design and freshened taillights. New wheels for Limited and Sport debut, and a new premium 3-in-1 audio system with a CD changer is available. Revised sun visors with extensions and a HomeLink programmable transmitter come standard on Limited and can be ordered on SR5. Limited also gets a new color of wood trim, and standard front seat heaters. There's bad news for hard-core off-roaders -- the optional differential lock has been discontinued with the demise of the manual transmission. Three new colors replace two old ones on the color chart.

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota 4Runner Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Very reliable car from an engine and systems standpoint. Wish the mileage efficiency was higher. Suspension is a bit hard; it bounces quite a bit on small bumps on the road.

My 4runner review

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Toyota 4Runner Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

The 4Runner has lived up to everything I expected it to be. I did a lot of research prior to purchasing the 4Runner. Sure there were some that had a more comfortable ride, but you can't beat the reliability, cargo room, and versatility of the 4Runner. I also feel like some of the others, in particular the Lexus 300 and the Acura MDX, are just too "soft" looking.
