2022 Toyota 4Runner

Pros: Off-road capability; large, versatile cargo area; well-designed infotainment controls

Cons: Fuel economy; ride quality and handling finesse don’t match most competitors; 2nd-row seat space isn’t as generous as exterior size might suggest

CG Says: The 2022 Toyota 4Runner lineup adds a TRD Sport trim level with a suspension tuned for on-road handling. LED high-beam headlights and a rear occupancy alert feature are now standard on all trims, and a blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert are standard on most. The Toyota 4Runner is pretty much in a class by itself. No other midsize SUV offers a traditional body-on-frame design with seating for up to 7 passengers. While passenger room is just OK by modern standards, 4Runner has excellent cargo space and flexibility thanks to a couple unique features, such as its available power-opening liftgate glass and slide-out loading tray. A 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission is the sole powertrain. Rear-wheel drive is standard and 4-wheel drive is available. Standard Toyota Safety Sense P safety equipment includes autonomous emergency braking, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headlights. Other available features include heated/ventilated front seats, keyless access and starting, locking rear differential, Downhill Assist Control, and power running boards. While you’ll never mistake its on-road behavior for a modern crossover, the 4Runner is civilized enough to be livable as a daily driver. The current-generation 4Runner is one of the oldest vehicle designs still on the market—it was last redesigned for 2010—and its fuel economy and interior ergonomic/technology features trail most rivals. However, a new-generation 4Runner is in the works, and it could possibly debut for the 2024 model year.
