Review of the 2005 Toyota 4Runner

  • Highly capable whether on the pavement or in the dirt, the 4Runner is a well-rounded midsize SUV, and one of our favorites, particularly with the third-row seat option.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful engine lineup, well mannered on pavement, above average off-road capability, comfortable, well-trimmed cabin, long list of standard equipment.

  • Cons

    Cargo capacity isn't much more than what many compact SUVs offer, cramped third-row seat.

  • What's New for 2005

    The base V6 now comes with a five-speed automatic, while the optional V8 has been upgraded to deliver 270-hp and 330 pound-feet of torque. A rollover sensor now comes with the optional head curtain airbag system. A limited-slip differential has been added to the stability control system. SR5 models now feature a chrome grille, color-keyed bumpers and black running boards, while the Sport model get a color-keyed grille. All Limiteds receive color-keyed bumpers, illuminated black running boards and a black roof rack.

Driver seat and gas/brake pedal

Vehicle: 2005 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

I have had the vehicle only a short time and find it to be a much better vehicle than my old 98 Ford Explorer. Although the Explorers seats were more comfortable. I am 6'1" and find the driver seat to be short in the leg area and hard to adjust. I understand the 06's have power seats standard and telescoping steering wheel adjustments. Both features are very much needed. There is very limited space between the gas and break pedal and I find that with my boots on I have the tendency to hit both the gas and break at the same time. Other than that I am loving it.

I have driven a lot of SUV's and this one definitely was the most fun and comfortable of them all. It is very quiet inside and feels solid. Not to mention that the V8 really gets up and goes.
