2018 Toyota 4Runner redesigned last for 2014, and unchanged from 2016 until 2017, is Toyota offroad SUV, with truck-like body on the chassis frame. It hasn’t crossed from the rough days, unlike the Highlander, though not rough.
Comes with smooth 4.0-liter V6 making 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque that makes it fast, and the five-speed automatic transmission, that feels like enough gears if you haven’t driven the eight-and nine-and ten-speeds, much has been disappointing.
4Runner drives better than it should be. It is even easy to maneuver in parking lots. Very comfortable for hours on end, with a fairly smooth ride and very little road noise.
Inside, has been less smooth than the Ford Explorer or Dodge Durango, two main competitors. And since the 2018 Toyota 4Runner streaking on body cramped and floor space is higher, there is less cargo than in the crossover of the same size.
TRD Off Road and TRD Pro Series model only comes with 4WD. Fra Pro a serious, with Bilstein shocks have a spare remote, Nitto all-terrain tires, front springs, TRD skid plate, exclusive wheels and TRD trim and badging.
2017 4Runner TRD Off Road new model in the name, after the previous line was called.
Eight airbags are standard. It’s a good value in the crash tests, but not always top ranked in each of the tests by the IIHS and NHTSA’S.
The fifth basic model with rear-wheel-drive is EPA rated at 17 miles per gallon city, 22 Highway and a combined 19; four-wheel drive gets 1 mpg less.

WALKAROUND 2018 TOYOTA 4RUNNER
4Runner looks like what it is, brawny SUV, rather than what is not, a crossover. The nose looks like it belongs on a truck, right. 4Runner doesn’t matter a bit that does not lean, or that looks like a Crabby catfish. The body of the boxy have flash, chrome sprinkled around. The high window and rear pillar slope down towards the 1986.
FRA Pro Series took a crazy fish look one step further with the lattice of the tongue and skidplates like silver scales under the Chin. Available in the colors FRA called Inferno.
INTERIOR 2018 TOYOTA 4RUNNER
2018 Toyota 4Runner no luxury but it’s detailed, with a simple and reasonable control of chunky but still precise. Unlike the exterior, the interior of the avoidance of chrome. There are fewer controls on the centerstack, because control offroad overhead. The steering wheel has audio and Bluetooth button.
The front seats are wide and supportive, and with an optional skin perforation, they look great and comfortable to travel long distances. Contoured reclining rear seats and actually handle three adults.
The third row is available for the fifth and limited, but it is hard to climb back there.
Overall, the interior is nice, but it’s still less smooth than the Explorer or Durango.
DRIVING IMPRESSIONS 2018 TOYOTA 4RUNNER
4.0-liter V6 engine with five-speed automatic provides acceleration worthy, and 278 pound-feet of torque or towing offroad meet demands. The transmission holds its own for the five-speed; shift quickly, though less number of teeth which are offered by the competition.
Given the off-road capability, the 4Runner impressive responsiveness on the sidewalk. Steering and maneuvering unexpected fun, unexpected if you are not familiar with, that’s the 4Runners. In the crawl, handle with precision and control, important when crawling through the field of boulder.
The fifth generation with basic suspension can shake on the sidewalk patchwork, and lean more in turns. If you’re driving it beyond their comfort zone, it will let you know that it is still a truck with high side walls and soft suspension. Optional active shock expand the comfort zone.
4Runner is surprisingly free of wind noise to a square shape, and it is no way a little noise thanks to a soft suspension.
What is 4Runner shortcomings on the road, it makes up for the road. There is a difference between the model 4WD system. Limited models get a full-time 4WD geared to the road, along with a smooth mound of active shock and level out cornering, called the X-REAS. X-REAS suspension enhancement is a great setting if you want to drive fast in the twisty paved road.
Model TRD Off road options offer as kinetic dynamic suspension system, using hydraulics to add stability on the road, and more traction with the wheel more road trip.
FRA Pro is another animal, perhaps one of the wild. Use a suspension tweak with reset springs and Bilstein remote reservoir shock, Nitto-all-terrain tires, skid plates and other TRD parts. We’ve had some time off-road behind the wheel, and it’s good grades each test us.
Other elements of the 4Runner brings to the table is its durability. It is difficult to measure but 4Runners appeared to withstand repeated use for better through another steep boulder fields and that would leave any crossover in line.
SUMMARY 2018 TOYOTA 4RUNNER
2018 Toyota 4Runner is a superb choice for someone who needs a rugged SUV. It can handle often pushed over the precipitous far better than any crossover can be. The closest competitor is the Dodge Durango, which is more delicate. But if you compare the powertrains, we’ll go with the V6 and the eight-speed on the new 4Runner.
