4runner an acceptable alternative to a pickup truck.
2016 Toyota 4Runner SR5
I purchased the 4runner as a replacement for a pickup truck, based on its record of reliability and to save on gas usage.. The Toyota has fewer options than the truck, but has enough for me. The SUV is reliable, and when recalled for the takata airbag valve the service was provided within a day. Gas mileage is a bit disappointing, under 16 mpg, but towing capability is acceptable, and an acceptable trade-off. Body and interior have held up well; this vehicle lives outdoors year round in the ny snowbelt. With 4 wheel drive, I can get around very nicely, including on unplowed roads.
Road noise is a negative.
