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
