The Toyota 4Runner Limited is the top of the line for the model. This SUV does its best to blend the rugged capabilities boasted by all 4Runners, and the creature comforts found in higher-end SUVs. The end result is an off-road capable truck that should be very comfortable on the road.
I was impressed with this 4Runner. It's comfortable, has ample power and more than enough off-road buttons to press.
The V6 isn't the most powerful engine you'll find in an SUV these days, but it's plenty for any normal operator.
I didn't get to test the four-wheel drive or hill descent, but I have no doubt it works as well as any other 4Runner.
One small complaint I had concerned those retracting running boards. Who wants these and why? All they are good for is 1. giving you something to warn friends of as they open a door and 2. act as an extra obstacle to step over while entering and exiting the vehicle.
Other than that, I thought this was a great SUV, though with the finish inside and out I would expect a slightly smaller price tag.David S. Wallens
