    Im sure others have posted before about the new 4Runner, but screw it...

    OMFG, Toyota nailed it on the head with this one. As a previous 3rd gen owner (best vehicle I have ever owned), I never liked the 4th gen model, which seemed like a crummy station wagon a steroids.

    Well, Toyota styled the new one like half a 3rd gen, half an FJ Cruiser, half an old Sequoia. Yes, I am aware this equals more than one, but 4Runners are above and beyond mere vehicles. It's much more aggressive, and (get this), better approach and departure angles than the 4th gen, better clearance, in other words, a true off roader.

    Four Wheeler drove two of them, BONE STOCK save for mud tires, across the Rubicon trail, and made it with only the expected busted mud flaps and bent mufflers. Toyota's chief engineer for the 'runner even made the trip from Japan and beat the living shit out of them harder than anyone else to test its limits.

    Oh, and the V6 makes more power than the old V8 and is more fuel efficient then the previous V6. Toyota FTMFW.

    Fuck yeah, baby!!!!

    When they first introduced them I thought they were ass ugly. However seeing them in person at the dealer when I had the Taco in last week they're starting to grow on me.

    The one is the pictures is the Trail Edition. Which has the Automatic Swaybar and the open diff ( i think)

    The one in the video is a Limited. But they are Awesome 'Runners. I think this one will get more attention of the guys than the girls like it originally did

    I too used to own a 3rd gen 4Runner and loved it!!!! I have been thinking about buying one too. I will prob. wait till next year, you know, let Toyota work out any bugs the new one has. But I love the look of it.

    I saw one today @ North Hollywood Toyota. Its very Impressive and I actually like it a lot! Its done just right! I hope they fail on the new TACOMAS...So I don't get any ideas of trading mine in....

    I don't want to see a New RAD RED Tacoma styled like the New 4Runners..


    The price on the New 4Runner is however :eek:

    My GF is looking for a new vehicle, wanting to get rid of her car and go for an suv. As of now she is tossing around the idea of the 4runner, Highlander, and Murano. I like the idea of having another Toyota in the yard but I hate getting the newly designed. They always have some kinks to work out. It'll be a few more months but i'm gone drive one.

    IMO they're nicer in person but they still look damn good in pictures too.
