Toyota 4Runner

Expert's Rating

2.35 (Fair)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Toyota’s unburstable 4Runner remains a potent off-roader, offering technology from its Land Cruiser sibling at less than half the price. The 2019 Toyota 4Runner is also one of the last body-on-frame vehicles on sale, delivering remarkable levels of durability.

3/4 Front Glamour 2009 Toyota 4Runner

Major changes included:

Completely new from the ground up, the 2003 Toyota 4Runner shares almost nothing with last year's model. In spite of that, its basic mission has not changed. The new 4Runner offers serious off-road capability. While other SUVs are becoming more and more like cars, the 4Runner is, as Toyota says, the "real deal." It's loaded... Read more »

1996 - 2002 Toyota 4Runner

3/4 Front Glamour 2002 Toyota 4Runner

Major changes included:

Toyota is a longtime player in the sport-utility game. The company's original Land Cruiser gained a solid reputation for toughness; early versions are still a common sight wherever off-roaders gather.
