The 2014 Toyota 4Runner is a member of an endangered species called the sport/utility vehicle. Confused? Let me explain. That Toyota RAV4 your neighbor is driving isn’t a real SUV. It’s a crossover vehicle, one that blends the space and styling of an SUV with the driving dynamics and fuel economy of a car. Once upon a time, the RAV4 would have been called a station wagon. But not today, of course, because that’s acceptable to people leading “active lifestyles.”
In any case, what you see here is a traditional, midsize SUV, one made for going places few other vehicles can. It is sold in SR5, Trail, and Limited trim levels, and prices range from $33,180 for a 4Runner SR5 with rear-wheel drive to about $45,000 for a 4Runner Limited with 4-wheel drive and all the upgrades.
