The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
If you’re going off-road, consider the 2018 Toyota 4Runner. It’s a trusty tool for any kind of expedition, but it’s not so civilized around town. The 2018 Toyota Tacoma is a mid-size pickup with the right-sized attitude: it’s nimble off road, capable, and just enough truck for many buyers.
