The 4Runner stays true to sport-utility tradition, which dictates a truck front end and a wagon body, and some bright chrome tossed in only where it'll protect the paint from rocks or trees. You can admire that from a philosophical point of view, even if something like the 4Runner gets very, very familiar over time--even with with year's chunky new grille that borders on a Mitsubishi look more than ever.

It's brawny and aesthetically unconcerned with sleekness. That sets the 4Runner aside from entries like the Ford Explorer and Dodge Durango even toward the rear end, where it's still mostly a conservative, traditional SUV look, with a wide, downward-sloping C-pillar looking to past generations of the 4Runner.

The Toyota 4Runner lives up to its SUV look, with every bit of off-road capability factored into its suspension and drivetrain. We think it's fairly competent on the street too, though other reviews find it a poor substitute for a crossover.

The 4Runner is a large, heavy SUV, though nowhere near as bulky as Toyota's own Sequoia. It's offered with a sole drivetrain, one that pairs a 4.0-liter V-6 engine, making 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque, with a five-speed automatic transmission. The combination is strong enough to deliver competitive acceleration, whether taking off from a stoplight, climbing a steep trail or driveway, or passing at highway speeds. The quick-shifting automatic always seems to be on its game, though it's at least one cog behind the state of the art, if not three.

Crossovers are superior people carriers to most true sport-utes for a reason. Their car-based underpinnings allow for better packaging and more interior and cargo space.

But for a traditional SUV fan that needs room for five and a bit of kit, the 4Runner's fine, really. Its shortcomings as a minivan substitute are easy to pick out, and drivers looking for that should look elsewhere--maybe something in an Explorer, or even a Durango.
