1994 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6 4dr SUV 4WD


A very reliable and rugged 4WD truck. Great for crawling over rocks, fording water, and punching through 3' snow-drifts. Not so much fun on the freeway. This 4runner is definitely still a truck. No mechanical or electrical problems with the vehicle at all. I average 18mpg highway/city. Not bad mpg for a truck of its capabilities. This truck is very fun to drive off the pavement, and is very stable over ruff roads. On the freeway the weak engine and top-heavy weight distribution make it a little scary.

Best Features

Tailgate and roll-down rear window. Ground Clearance, 4WD + low range, skid plates, high seating possition. Stiff ladder frame, manual transmission (gone as an option in the newer 4runners), reliablity, reliability, reliability. Fold-flat rear seats.

Worst Features

Seats are very uncomfortable. Crash test scores and safety features are abominable. Engine is weak. Cup holders are in a bad location in the dash.
