    I’m talking about a gen 1 Toyota pickup, to all gens 4 runner, to a 95 Tacoma, to an 01 Tacoma, to a new 4 runner, to a 3rd gen Tacoma. You have convinced yourself something, based most likely on parrot posts.

    Most of the crappiest engines and vehicles Toyota ever brought to market were built in Japan. That data point is irrelevant.

    1991 4Runner with 3.0 was a POS with a defective engine.

    The best vehicles Toyota ever made, no argument, were the 90s Camrys. They were built in Kentucky.

    The Kentucky cars exceeded the Japanese output by Toyota in terms of quality.

    The 4 runner isn’t a truck.

    Interchanged? I said the 4 runner isn’t “tighter”. Meaning the felt perception of quality is bs. And also that the 4 runner isn’t a truck. That can be a new argument.

    They do make you click the “SUV” tab to find the Runners, but yeah.....I guess a Corolla is a truck.

    Correct. Tomato, potato. I don’t make a potato sauce to ladle onto noodles. And I don’t use an SUV when I clearly want a TRUCK.

    If I or anyone else can make a palatable potato sauce for spaghetti, then tomato/potato and suv/truck is bs and I’ll eat my words, and the potato spaghetti.

    That’s fine. I have as well and that was not my experience, and I don’t believe that.

    I have a 2018 Tacoma TRD Sport and my wife has a 2016 4Runner TRD OR. Both have their own pros and cons, I love my taco and wouldn’t give it up for anything, even though it drives like a TRUCK.

    There’s a little more pep in our 4Runner, with it being a 4.0 instead of a 3.5. I would say if you cannot decide which one to get, just have one of each!

    What makes a truck a truck? Is it simply just having a bed?

    There are dozens of types of trucks that don't have beds. Tow trucks, fire trucks, mail trucks, bucket trucks, Etc.

    There are also PICK UP trucks.

    4runner has body on frame, solid rear axle, 4x4 with 2 speed part time transfer case.

    Ridgeline has unibody, CV axle drive train, AWD, and a big shiny BED!

    Which one is more of a truck?

    The guy just learned how to cook a steak. I’m not eating anything he serves unless it’s totinos, and even then I’d pass.

    The public decides, and Toyota. It’s defined by people’s perception.

    The public: 4Runner is SUV
    Toyota: 4Runner is SUV
    Truck owners: 4Runner is SUV
    Ridgeline owners: 4Runner is SUV
    4Runner owners: 4Runner is truck

    Yeah I’d say the bed part. That’s a good start. Since it’s the obvious one.

    Ridgeline is also a truck.

    The 4 runner is not.

    Same with suburban owners. I’m like “yeah ok. Whatever makes you feel like you don’t drive a station wagon”
