The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. For a truck-based SUV, the Ford is versatile and capable, with a great interior and a number of safety and entertainment features. For a smoother ride, consider a car-based SUV instead.
