Expert Quotes:

17 mpg city, 23 highway (RWD); 17/22 (4WD)
U.S. EPA

A green “eco” light in the dash comes on when you’re being thrifty on the throttle, and we averaged 18 mpg over a mix of highway cruising and off-road slogging
Car and Driver




The 2011 Toyota 4Runner is a body-on-frame sport-utility vehicle, and when it comes to saving weight, optimizing aerodynamics, and being fuel-efficient, it's not the greenest layout. But next to trucklike SUVs (and even a number of luxury crossovers), the 4Runner isn't so bad; its EPA rating of 17 mpg in the city is 1 mpg better than that of the V-6 Grand Cherokee, and better than virtually all larger trucks.

For 2011, the 4Runner has become a little less green, as Toyota has completely dropped the base four-cylinder engine from the lineup. It's no big loss, however, as the engine was offered only on entry-level rear-wheel-drive models and earned only slightly better fuel economy, at 18/23.

Conclusion

The 2011 Toyota 4Runner is not at all green for family duty. But compared to other trucks, it's one of the more fuel-efficient.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
