New 4runners, NOT as good as the last, v6 weak..
By scratchgolfer2 on
2010 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have had the last few 4runners now, the Limited 1997, then the amazing 2007 V8 Limited. I love the cars, performance and Toyota quality. I really didnt want to trade in my 2007 but I hit 100K so figured I would check them out, not too crazy about the new style but it is okay and thought the new higher HP V6 might be okay at 270HP, however it is NOT, it is WAY underpowered for this size vehicle. It also doesn't have the same solid feel that my previous 4runners always had that other's never had. Makes me wonder if they really changed some things here....engine just doesnt feel right.....way to slow, with the Tundra 5.7 v8 as an option this might be a great truck
navigation, leather, new improved electric steering is maybe the only improvement over the last model
Engine, Engine, Engine....way underpowered, feels like they put a corolla 4 banger in a Sequia, well i am exaggerating a little but for 44k new limited, not really
And if they tweeked the v6 to get that extra HP this year it may lead to more problems down the road, my suggestion stick with the 2003-2009 generation, that V6 is great in that truck, the V8 is even better.....
