2006 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I looked at the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, used Acura MDX's, and a few sedans. Then I waited to see what changes were to be made to the 2006 4Runner. Although relatively subtle changes were made, it was enough to sell me. I am very pleased with my 4Runner!
Reputation for quality. The color (Salsa Red). The rugged looks (even the non- functional hood scoop. The tilt/telescope steering wheel. The JBL soundsystem w/MP3 and IPOD hookup. The power and sounds of the V8. The projector headlights. ...did I mention the color (Salsa Red)?
Nothing that I can think of other than to try and improve gas mileage. But it is an SUV, so how can we expect miracles.
