Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Toyota 4Runner ranking is based on its score within the Midsize SUVs category. Currently the Toyota 4Runner has a score of 7.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 49 pieces of research and data elements using various sources

It offers all the hardware necessary for rock crawling on the weekend, and on the weekdays it can seat up to seven or pack away a tremendous amount of cargo. It’s also a high scorer when it comes to predicted reliability. That said, this SUV is a lot friendlier off-road than on. You’ll find that rivals like the Jeep Grand Cherokee offer a better mix of on-road comfort and all-terrain performance. Alternatively, models like the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander are much more practical – and affordable – options for cruising suburbia

Since the 4Runner doesn’t offer many high-tech convenience features, you can largely ignore the pricey 4Runner Limited

Pros
Impressive off-road capability
Great overall cargo space

Cons
Firm ride
Poor fuel economy
Cramped third-row seats
So-so interior materials and features

The Toyota 4Runner is known for being true to its roots. It's one of the last remaining old-school SUVs, which is to say it's still a truck. It has not crossed over to being a tall car. Its body is bolted to its rugged chassis, like they used to do, back when SUVs were tough and before they were gentrified. If you want one of those, buy a Toyota Highlander. If you intend to go off road, get the 4Runner

The 4Runner is comfortable for long trips, with a reasonably smooth ride and very little road noise, although the cabin doesn't quite match the refinement of the Ford Explorer or Dodge Durango. And its narrower body and taller floor steal some cargo space, compared to those models that aren't body-on-frame.

If you need a new full-sized SUV and don't want no namby-pamby crossover, the 4Runner is the hot setup in this price range.

With the 2016 Toyota 4Runner, you'll trade off a little refinement and on the road finesse for true SUV capability, off-road prowess, and unparalleled style

The 4Runner has a certain Tonka-truck charm, with its squared-off corners and remarkably straight surfaces, by today's standards

The Toyota 4Runner isn't as uncomfortable on-pavement as it used to be; yet it's kept all the off-road prowess

The 4Runner has a surprisingly quiet ride, and its cabin is good for four adults.

The 2016 4Runner earns respectable ratings, though small-overlap test results bring down its GPA.

ust as it should, the Toyota 4Runner puts the focus on off-road gear and useful hardware.

Gas mileage isn't exactly the focus here—and if it is, you shouldn't be considering the 4Runner.

The 4Runner is authentic, and that's part of what makes its rugged style work so well. It's not just an image conjured up for marketing purposes; this truck family has had the same basic wagon shape for years

Pros
An SUV like no other
Perfectly matched powertrain
Rugged yet comfortable cabin
Trail model's handy off-road electronics
Off-road-ready TRD Pro Series

Cons
Third-row seat is for kids only
Cargo space isn't at all plentiful
Choppy ride in base versions
Pricey in Trail and Limited trim

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is a rugged body-on-frame SUV with more off-road capability than almost any rival, but as a daily driver it's lacking a bit of refinement.

Rowdy, off-road ready, truck-based SUVs were once the hottest segment in the market. But shoppers soon discovered that bouncy rides and poor fuel economy were also part of the deal. That ushered in the crossover, an easy-riding, car-based light utility vehicle that looks a lot like an SUV but lacks its truck-based ruggedness. There are only a few traditional SUVs left these days, and the 2016 Toyota 4Runner stands proudly among them. Boasting available three-row seating, a spacious cargo hold and Toyota's reputation for reliability, the 4Runner stays true to its roots as a hairy-chested SUV that's ready for almost anything

The 4Runner has a difficult time smoothing out potholes in the city with its busy ride, and its fuel economy is woeful compared to most V6-powered crossovers. And its optional third row seating is best reserved for kids, so if you want adult-sized space back there, you'll need to look elsewhere.

pros
Outstanding off-road capability
Strong V6 engine
Ample cargo capacity
Optional third-row seat.

cons
Busy ride
Third row is for kids only
Poor fuel economy
Low towing capacity for a traditional SUV
Cumbersome setup process for Entune system.

The 2018 Lexus GX ranked #21 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lexus GX has a score of 7.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 40 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding off-road capability
Good towing capacity

Cons
Poor fuel economy
Unexceptional cabin comfort and features
Small, inconvenient cargo area
Weak acceleration

There are only a few minor changes in available features for the 2018 Lexus GX 460.If you're seriously considering the GX 460, you probably want to venture off-road in it. But if that's the case, you'll want the added ground clearance the Luxury trim's adaptive air suspension provides. Without it, the GX 460's ground clearance is worse than some crossovers.

PROS
Impressive off-road capability in a segment largely without it
High view out
Easy-to-use interior controls

CONS
Rough ride on broken pavement
Poor fuel economy and acceleration
Seats are uncomfortable
Compromised cargo space and third-row seat

By: 
edmunds.com

The Lexus GX 460 pairs scads of off-road hardware with lots of luxury trim, but most drivers will be better off with a crossover.

Pros
Solid truck feel
Strong, smooth V-8
Smothering ride
Comfortable cabin
Lots of off-road tech

Cons
Tailgate opens sideways
Light steering
Poor fuel economy
Brake feel
Shallow, narrow cargo area
