2010 Toyota 4Runner TrailEnlarge Photo
Toyota 4Runner – Available in 2WD and 4WD models, the Toyota 4Runner posted 2010 sales of 46,531, up 138 percent from year before sales of 19,675. The fact that Toyota introduced the fifth-generation 4Runner for 2010 probably accounts for much of the sales increase. Three 4Runner models--SR5, Trail, and Limited--are powered by a 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V-6 engine mated to five-speed automatic transmission, achieving an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway (17/22 mpg in Trail). Starting MSRP ranges from $29,675 to $39,835. Ground clearance is 9.0 inches in SR5 and 9.6 inches in Trail and Limited. Maximum towing capacity is 5,000 pounds. Cargo volume behind the front seats is 89.7 cubic feet in SR5 and Limited (88.8 cubic feet in all models with sliding deck). With optional third row, the 4Runner can seat up to seven (five is standard). Trail model, however, seats only five. The Car Connection editors, testing the 2010 Toyota 4Runner, give it an overall 8.2 (out of 10) rating.
