If you're in the market looking for a serious off-roading vehicle that also comes with great quality, durability, and reliability, then the 2011 Toyota 4Runner is an excellent choice. The 2011 Toyota 4Runner will continue to serve as one of the favorite vehicles for people who want a truck but also want an SUV. Still rugged and sporty, the 4Runner offers people the opposite of a crossover. This is a truck, drives like a truck, and is for people who like trucks.
The 4Runner changed plenty for the 2010 model year, so there's little that has changes for the 2011 model year. The 2011 4Runner comes in the choice of a base four cylinder engine or a V6. The base is a four cylinder 2.7-liter that gets 157 horsepower. It comes standard with an automatic transmission and depending on the trim you choose, you can upgrade to the V6 and also select four wheel drive. The SR5 4X2 is equipped with a standard 4.0-liter V6 that can produce 245 horsepower. The Limited 4X4 is equipped with a standard 4.0-liter V6 that produced 245 horsepower as well.
The 4Runner is known for being full of rounded corners and other soft features. For 2010, the 4Runner got significantly more angular and boxy, and also has a truck-like SUV construction, which is very old school. This is not a crossover. It's an SUV, which means that it's more truck than car. Inside, among the standard features are remote keyless entry, power tailgate window, tilting steering and 10 cup holders. Satellite radio is a surprising standard feature, and if you upgrade, you'll get steering wheel controls, Blue tooth connectivity and other convenience features. No too bad of a set of features for a truck SUV.
