Toyota 4Runner Overview

Car and Driver

“4Runner promises to be a quiet and reliable SUV that will endure years of abuse without complaint.”

Rugged utility is one of the things that sets the 2017 4Runner apart from the competition. All trims run on a 4.0L V6 that delivers 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. You can expect to go from 0-60 mph in a quick 7.6 seconds and capably handle tow loads of up to 5,000 pounds. Those are impressive capabilities, and thanks to its body-on-frame construction, this model is built to endure tough conditions with strength and durability.

The Car Connection

“For those looking for a reliable pack mule with four wheels and four-wheel drive, the 4Runner remains a solid choice.”

Hauling power is definitely part of the appeal of the Toyota 4Runner, but interior utility is also a highlight. There is standard seating for five, but if you often or just occasionally need to create seats for more, a removable third-row seat is available and raises capacity to seven overall. There is 124.0 cubic feet of passenger room in total, meaning the five adults can handle long distances comfortably. Plus, the 4Runner offers 47.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row and 89.7 cubic feet of max cargo space, which is enough space for lots of luggage, gear, or equipment.


“Weekend excursions are what this traditional SUV does best thanks to rugged drivetrain hardware and enough ground clearance to deal with tricky off-road situations.”

The 2017 4Runner reviews all make a point of highlighting the model’s stand out off-road capabilities. While it is a reliable daily driver as well, you don’t need to stay confined to the pavement. But with available features like a locking rear differential, a crawl control function, KDSS suspension, and a whole lot more, you can traverse the toughest terrain and count on your vehicle to take you just about anywhere you want to go.
