The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you’re after serious off-roading ability, the Pathfinder is more than capable—otherwise, there are comfier options available. 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.
