The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer is just a dressed-up Ford Explorer, though its styling is a better match for family duty. The 2010 Toyota 4Runner is a brawny “true truck” worth serious consideration if tough off-roading capability for regular trail driving is one of your requirements—and it won’t sacrifice comfort the rest of the time.
