The Toyota 4Runner is the Off-Road car of the people. With a reputation for being bulletproof, it became the off-road car that defined the SUV. We cover its humble inspiration- the Toyota Trekker, the low power, but indestructible, rock dominating first and second gen 4Runners, and the Modern Luxury SUV off-road monster it is today. This is everything you need to know to get Up to Speed on the Toyota 4Runner.

      Didn’t even mention the 5vz 3.4 liter. One of the best engines Toyota ever made. And the 3.0 may have come out in 1987 but it was in the 1988 model year vehicles. And the 2nd gen 4Runner came out in 1990. You can find pop top 4runners with the model year of 1989. 3rd gens definitely were what made the name. With either the 3.4l v6 or the 2.7l I4 it was an indestructible machine.

      In Puerto Rico we didn’t knew Hurricane María was going to hit us so hard (it’s force dobled and tripled every major hurricane that stroke the island for over a century. It was comparable only with one in late 19th Century which force can be calculated because it broke the barometer. Since it was something we couldn’t prevent we suddenly found ourselves without energy, without communication and every Road was full of debri. In my neighborhood people couldn’t communicate with their lives one, and many found themselves unable to look for them. Enters Rocinante, my 2000 4Runner, I went through flooded roads, through mud, through pathways full of fallen trees and electric and telephone poles in order to help my neighbors. A neighbor kept telling me, “Don’t sell it. Never, never, never, never”.
      My Rocinante was a true hero... ❤️
      I keep fantasizing that if I can make the money, I will put it new, even with rally equipment...
