Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

TRD Pro has new Fox shock absorbers, new skid plate and roof rack, and standard sunroof and JBL sound system.New Limited Nightshade Edition with black-out color scheme.The 2019 Toyota 4Runner is a midsize SUV whose hardware, ground clearance and cargo storage make it perfect for off-road adventures. Like many Toyotas, the 4Runner comes in just a handful of trim levels. These trim levels have few, if any, options, making the selection process a little easier.

PROS
Off-road capability few other competitors can match
Variety of configurations to suit many buyers and price points
Versatile cargo area, especially with optional slide-out floor

CONS
Choppy ride quality compared with more modern crossovers
Lacks the latest driver safety aids
V6 engine is not particularly fuel-efficient
Tall step-in height makes for ungraceful entry and exit

The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

Graceful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine,
smooth ride,
attractive and intuitive infotainment system.

Less rear-seat and cargo space than the class leaders,
turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.

Pros
Tough-hatch lines
Ample cargo bin
Wonderfully taut handling
Tech options aplenty
Brisk 2.0-liter acceleration

Cons
Busy, space-robbing dash
Firm seats, if you’re not into that
Not much SUV, if you’re into that
