The 2018 Toyota 4Runner SUV continues its dominance over a rapidly shrinking field of body-on-frame midsize SUVs. Rugged, reliable and highly valued, the 5-passenger Toyota 4Runner feels right at home on paved roads and it can venture to the off-road destinations.
You’ll get no argument from us that the 2018 Toyota 4Runner drives more like a pickup truck than a car, but that doesn’t mean its ride is unbearable or even uncivilized. Over smooth pavement the 4Runner exhibits good road manners and the 4Runner’s 270-horsepower V6 is a marvelous engine, delivering ample power for passing, merging and towing. Off-road, Toyota’s 2018 4Runner SUV exhibits amazing capabilities. Its narrow body and up to 9.6 inches of ground clearance make it easy to move through rugged trails.
REAR LIFTGATE POWER WINDOW – Toyota’s 2018 4Runner SUV features a power-retractable rear window incorporated into the rear liftgate. Lowering the window allows cargo or gear to more easily be loaded into the cargo bay. Should caked-on dust or mud impede rear visibility, the driver can simply lower the rear window.
SMART KEY SYSTEM – Getting the trip started is as easy as clearing a muddy terrain in 4Runner. When you approach the Limited with the Smart Key in
your pocket, the interior illuminates automatically, the doors and rear liftgate open with the touch of a handle and the engine starts with a push of a button. That easy.
15-SPEAKER JBL® SYSTEM – Every journey has an iconic playlist. Even when you’re back in the city, a song can take you back to the best moments of your trip. To ensure you don’t miss a note of your music’s soaring highs or thundering lows, the Limited boasts an amazing 15 speakers, including a subwoofer. It also features music streaming via Bluetooth® wireless technology, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio capability, CD and MP3/WMA capability, USB port and auxiliary audio jack.
The 2018 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 a 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.
This is the most dependable, most versatile, most unique vehicle you can buy, in part because the truck is so old school. The 4WD system is manually activated via a lever to a part-time transfer case — one of the few vehicles to maintain this desirable manual movement. A short dash and contoured A-pillars give all 4Runners excellent forward visibility, and large mirrors make it easy to see along the sides and into reverse. No, these trucks don’t have power tailgates, digital gauges or a nine-speed transmission, but that only means there’s fewer things to go wrong.
Utilitarian, tough, able to tackle truly terrible roads, the 4Runner is a stout and faithful companion. Consumer Reports and other reliability studies consistently put the 4Runner at the top, and my own experience — and that of my neighbours — has been the same: Other than routine maintenance and perhaps brake wear due to corrosion from salty roads, the trucks have proven themselves reliable. Their resale value is among the best in the business.
The Toyota 4Runner does many things extra-ordinarily well… So no matter where your adventures may take you, 4Runner helps to ensure that you can always keep it wild.
