2011 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
After extensive research, we've ordered a 4X4 limited as our next family vehicle. To sum it up, there is nothing in the market that combines this level of engineering, reliability, reasonable refin't, indestructability and versatility as the 4runner.No, it does not drive like the MDX or the FX35. No, it does not pamper you like the RX or the RR. But if you live in snow and deer country, and need a vehicle that can do and survive anything...this is it. For 40 grand (huge dealer discounts on a gas hog that no one wants), you get keyless entry, navigation, bluetooth, backup camera, heated leather seats...all wrapped inside the strongest body-on-frame design in its class. Deer zero, 4Runner one.
As a truck based SUV...it drives like a truck. Granted one that's been to finishing school.
Could tone down the truck element inside as well with the chunky black plastic and the big knobby controls, but then there's lexus.
Powered rear hatch would be a nice touch (esp. with a msrp north of 40K), but then there's lexus again.
