Editor's Overview

In a world of car-based Sport Utility Vehicles, the 2017 Toyota 4Runner reminds us of what a true, body-on-frame SUV looks like. Sure, the 4Runner isn’t as refined as a Nissan Pathfinder, nor is it as technically advanced or fuel-efficient. But just try taking a Pathfinder rock crawling and see how far you get.

The good and bad of my new Toyota.

I feel like the interior could use some help. The plastic piece behind the door handle keeps falling off. There is a mechanical cover missing from the back seat. There is something rattling around in the tailgate. The technology could use improving on. The GPS you have to use is horrible! The touch screen radio is also not user friendly. On the outside I love the looks of the 4Runner. I think it is a great looking car and will probably last a very long time.

- Rebecca W

Sporty vehicle with great features.

The 2017 4runner is a really great car! It is sporty which is one of the reasons I bought it. Has keyless entry, leather seats, sunroof, and touch screen navigation. Drives nice and is pretty good on gas. The only downfall that I have found is comfort. While riding in the front is comfortable, the back seats are not very comfortable for someone who is tall. I am almost 6 ft and hit my head when I ride in the back. Other than that it is a great vehicle!

- Ashley D

Toyota 4runner- best vehicle I have ever owned!

I love my 4runner! Rides very smooth and extremely comfortable. Fully loaded model with all available options except 3rd row seat. This vehicle is very reliable and has had no mechanical or electrical issues. I wish that the tailgate opened by remote, but other than that I have no complaints. I would buy another 4runner without a doubt. Previous vehicle was a 4-door Jeep wrangler and was a horrible vehicle compared to 4runner.
