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.

      So did the 4Runner never take away sales from their land cruiser? They seem similar enough. I always hear of companies removing cars from their line up so as not to create competition within themselves.

      They're pretty rare nowadays. I searched for about 5 months before I found a 2007 V8 Sport about 3 hours from me, with only 132k miles! If you live near a city it might be a little easier.
