Toyota offers an extensive lineup of SUVs and crossovers that includes six different models and two hybrids. The 2019 Toyota 4Runner is the life of that party. It’s one of the fun ones. In fact, it’s among the most rugged and off-road capable SUVs you can buy. Now in its fifth generation, the 4Runner has always delivered a unique mix of comfort and off-road capability. Think of it as the SUV version of Toyota’s indestructible Tacoma pickup, with some characteristics of the family-friendly Toyota Highlander sprinkled in as well.
First introduced in 1984, the 4Runner has always been popular with families looking for a little weekend adventure, as well as serious off-roaders and extreme athletes like mountain bikers, hikers, and snowboarders. On the weekends, the trailheads north of Los Angeles are full of 4Runners, both new and old. The 2019 4Runner competes with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Land Rover Discovery.
