2010 Toyota 4Runner Review

More about the 2010 Toyota 4Runner
More About This Model

The Toyota 4Runner is best known as a go-anywhere, do-everything SUV. But that definition only holds true for the four-wheel-drive models with the accompanying off-road equipment. What about the two-wheel-drive models? Our rear-drive 2010 Toyota 4Runner SR5 test vehicle has the rugged look of its adventurous brethren, but lacks the off-road capabilities. In this form, it has to compete against a host of car-based crossovers that are more adept at city driving than the 4Runner. And that's where its shortcomings become obvious.

In this class, even Toyota's own Highlander seems a better choice, with better road manners and more interior space. Additionally, the Chevrolet Traverse and Ford Flex trump the 4Runner in these regards. It seems the only direct competitors with truck underpinnings come in the form of the Ford Explorer, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Nissan Pathfinder. Similarly equipped, these traditional body-on-frame SUVs are also outdone by the aforementioned crossovers.

Buyers who are loyal to the 4Runner name benefit from the SUV's 2010 redesign. New, aggressive sheet metal and an updated interior represent the most immediate rewards. Underneath, the new 4Runner is based on Toyota's robust FJ Cruiser, but last year's V8 option is no more. However, the 2010's V6 engine does make a bit more horsepower with better fuel economy to boot, though torque drops 28 pound-feet to 278. Still, all things considered, we would steer anyone considering a non-off-roading 4Runner toward a more road-friendly crossover.

Should I lease or buy a 2010 Toyota 4Runner?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
