If you want a V8 in a 4Runner platform, you'll have to upgrade to something uglier...

Highlander is a "crossover"
It's for families who don't want to admit to owning a Sienna
The Sequoia is for people who want an even bigger, uglier SUV than the 4Runner.

Wife has an '04 Rav4. Next vehicle, the decision will be between the newer Rav4 or Highlander.
Toyota just put the final nail in the 4Runner coffin for us. If I don't replace the Taco with another pickup, my next will be an FJ.
Shame. I had an '08 4Runner company car at my last job and I loved that truck to death. My buddy "inherited" it when the lease ran out on his Explorer... the company turned the Explorers back in, but they bought out the leases on the two 4Runners.

I'd buy that before I'd buy the '14 4Runner.

Yea its funny people bitch about the 14 runner being so bad. Look around at the rest of SUVs. Look at the 2013 Ford explorer holy shit it looks like a Subaru tribeca. Or how about the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. I remember when that thing was bad ass not now. New 4 runner still looks way better than the 2013 Xterras. Or perhaps people will be happier with a 2013 Chevy Equinox. Its still a Toyota and its still fu#king awesome.

Didn't say I liked any of them

But we have to blame the insurance industry and modern safety standards.

SUVs and pickups with their tall front ends and high approach angles are deadly in side-impact collisions with vehicles lacking side airbags.
So the manufacturers are being forced by modern safety standards to lower their bumper heights (primarily front) so vehicles are "better matched"

Of course, the result makes the front end look like the front of a cab-over Semi.

The mid-size SUV markets looks have gone to sh*t with the present and upcoming model years. I think Nissan owners have the biggest gripe to bitch about as the new Pathfinder is hideous and I would gladly take a '14 Runner over that terd. I would have thought Toyota would have offered more interior space with the 2014 as the 2014 Highlander seems to be more accommodating to families now than the 4Runner which is surprising. Curious to see if the Highlander will out price the Runner now. We had an 08 4Runner that we were out growing and I would have loved to put my wife in a new one a little over a year and a half ago but the third row option is a joke and once you deploy that third row there is virtually no storage space left which made the Runner a no go for us. Sadly we ended up with GM junk and bought an Acadia Denali which GMC also took the opportunity to destroy the looks of a once somewhat decent looking mid-size SUV. The trend now seems to be, the uglier the better. Too bad for Pontiac as they were too early to the party with the hideousness of the Asstek.

Okay, that's decent.

Operating under a big assumption that the body panels allow for a straight cutoff at that point. The original photo doesn't look like it, so now we're talking cutting and painting.

Stock front end still looks like shit.
