2010 Toyota 4Runner Review

Excellent off-road capability and a pleasant interior make the 2010 Toyota 4Runner a strong choice among affordable midsize SUVs.

Pros & Cons

  • Great off-road capability
  • Inviting cabin
  • Cramped third-row seat

2010 Toyota 4Runner Overview

The redesigned 2010 Toyota 4Runner is one of the few 2010 midsize SUVs built on a truck-based platform, even though many others in the class moved to more comfortable car-based platforms. When it was new, reviewers said the 2010 4Runner was one of the most capable off-road SUVs on the market. The base engine is a four-cylinder, though most reviewers tested the available V6, which delivers adequate power for daily driving and off-roading. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, and part- and full-time four-wheel drive systems were available. With rear-wheel drive and the four-cylinder engine, the 4Runner achieves 18/23 mpg city/highway, which is about average for the class. Upgrading to the V6 engine with more than 100 additional horsepower takes a small toll on fuel economy.

While reviewers had minor complaints about the 4Runner’s front seats, some remarked that the middle row sits a bit too low for optimum comfort. Additionally, others remarked that the optional third row, which ups seating capacity to seven, feels cramped. However, most were pleased with the overall quality of the interior, noting soft-feeling, nicely-textured materials. The 4Runner comes standard with an eight-speaker stereo and a retractable rear window. Available features when it was new include a USB port, Bluetooth, a backup camera, water-repellant upholstery, leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and a 15-speaker JBL stereo. The 4Runner can carry up to 89.7 cubic feet of cargo with the rear rows folded, which isn’t bad for the class, but well behind the cargo space of class leaders like the Chevrolet Traverse.

Other Cars to Consider

If you want a midsize SUV that prioritizes on-road comfort rather than off-road ability, the 2010 Toyota Highlander fits the bill. It also has a good safety rating. Additionally, the Highlander earns better fuel economy estimates than the 4Runner.

Another midsize SUV with more interior space and comparable fuel economy is the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse. With great safety ratings and more cargo space, the Traverse is a good choice for families.
