If you’re seeking a dependable daily driver that can double as a rugged weekend warrior, Toyota’s 2016 4Runner SUV has you covered. There’s even a 3rd-row seat option that increases the 4Runner’s passenger complement to seven.
There are not many body-on-frame SUVs left in the world, and even fewer with the 2016 Toyota 4Runner’s reputation for capability, longevity and strong resale. Designed to tackle the toughest off-road obstacles, the 4Runner is all about the mission. The 4Runner has the ability to really take a pounding and tackle immovable objects with its powerful V6 and numerous interior amenities help it remain competitive when prowling the urban jungle.
The 2016 Toyota 4Runner’s suspension and spring settings deliver a decent combination of ride comfort and cornering ability. Thanks to a potent 270-horsepower V6 engine, accelerating and passing are never a worry, and the efficient 5-speed automatic always feels sure of its gear selection even when negotiating steep grades. No surprise, the heavy 4Runner is not as agile or self-assured in the curves as a car-based SUV, but the relatively narrow body makes maneuvering easier than in a full-size SUV. However, once off road, the only sounds filling the cabin are those of laughter and the occasional, “Let’s do that again.”
Favorite Feature: REAR LIFTGATE POWER WINDOW – Toyota’s 2016 4Runner features a power rear window ideal for when you need to load gear but don’t want to open the entire liftgate. Lowering the rear window also aids in ventilation when cruising and rearward visibility when dust or mud covers the glass.
Interior: Although rather simple, the 2016 4Runner’s cabin is roomy and versatile. The 4Runner’s large dials and buttons operating everything from the radio to the low-range gearing are a cinch to use. The large center console has an available 120V AC power outlet, helpful for charging accessories. The power-adjustable front seats are comfortable and supportive. In back, a 40/20/40-split seat offers numerous cargo/seating configurations and reclines. Seven-passenger seating in the SR5 trim, though the small third row is best suited for children. Folding the rear seats yields a flat floor and nearly 90 cubic feet of cargo space.
What We Like: The 4Runner stands tall. It’s a truck and proud of it. It’ll cruise highways in quiet comfort, and its ride is better than a Toyota Tacoma’s. Accurate steering matches well with the big feel of the 4Runner. But you shouldn’t choose one of these for its on-road demeanor. This is an SUV that will make your off-road fantasies a reality. The 4Runner promises to be a quiet and reliable SUV that will endure years of abuse without complaint. Another cool thing: You can still lower the rear liftgate window, just as in every 4Runner since 1984.
In long-term value, the 4Runner is a Best Resale Value Award winner, with predicted residuals far above the Xterra and near those of the stellar Jeep Wrangler. With its rugged body-on-frame construction and legendary off-road ability, the 2016 Toyota 4Runner is the SUV outdoor adventurers covet.
