Outstanding all-around SUV
By Timothy Howes on
Vehicle2007 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewReplaced a 2000 Isuzu Trooper. Was going to buy a smaller vehicle, but when I drove the 4Runner I was sold. Amazing ride and handling, yet very capable off-road. Fuel economy for body-on-frame SUV has been very reasonable at 22-23 mpg on highway, 18 mpg in town. Towing is impressive even with V-6. Tows my 4,500lb boat fairly easily. I like the fact that this is a no-bling vehicle that does what its supposed to do without excuses.
Best FeaturesNice level of standard equipment, even in SR5. Smooth ride. Surprisingly decent fuel economy, off-road ability. Base stereo isn't bad either. V-6 gives effortless power.
Worst FeaturesNot much, HVAC controls could stand some improvement, reclining back seat. Would be nice if vehicle were about 1- 2" higher to allow a little more height inside (I'm 6'2"). Though it doesn't need to be as tall as a Lexus GX 470.
