For some people, life can be dull and listless, and so they feel that they need to go on an adventure to light up a spark of excitement in their daily lives. For that, they need a reliable vehicle to get them where they need to go and get them there in one piece. For such demanding requirements, no vehicle is better suited for the job than the 2012 Toyota 4Runner. As you might expect from a vehicle bred for the life of adventure, the 4Runner looks tough and reliable. It should too, since the 4Runner was designed to give off a feel of security to calm nerves for when driving around cliffs and mountains. So when you get a little twitchy with the thought of high peaks, one look at the 4Runner will get you back on track.

The interior of the 4Runner will also not let up with making people feel safe and secure. Snuggly comfortable, with cushy seating materials and an interior space that will not feel suffocating even with a full load, you get what you pay for and more. The entertainment and navigation technology imbedded into the 4Runner’s system are also updated to keep you occupied as well as on the right path.

Coming into what really matters most, the 4Runner performs as you would expect it to and that is to get you to every exciting corner of the land with its powerful V6 engine. You don’t have to fear going out of control either as the built-in stabilization technology of the 4Runner keeps you in control even as you push it to its limits.

After conquering and almost monopolizing its class in the automotive market for the last decade, the Toyota 4Runner comes back this 2012 retaining much of the toughness after being redesigned in 2010.  It proves to still be fantastic off-road vehicle and a perfect companion for travelling to remote, hidden, and unpaved locations with either the gang or your family. The toughness of this vehicle has remained its charm and appeal because it simply can deliver especially in tough situations.  For 2012, they have cleverly updated all the interior features with high technology but keeping them easy to use.

Overall, the 2012 Toyota 4Runner is for the true Toyota loyalist who wants to conquer roads with a budget.

With all trim models coming with a standard 4.0-liter V6 engine coupled with a five-speed automatic transmission with manual mode, the 2012 Toyota 4Runner has an impressive off-road prowess and a civilized on-road demeanor.  These qualities are most loved by automotive critics and editors as they have not given much good reviews for the on-road behavior of trucks like these.

After having road tested by test drivers, no one even questioned the absence of a V8 engine because the V6 already gives a lot of power that would be suitable for just about any condition.  Steering is easy and accurate making it easier to move around and maneuver even in tight spaces.

EPA rates the two-wheel drive models at 17/23 mpg city/highway and four-wheel drives at 17/22 mpg respectively.  These are quite impressive numbers for a truck-based SUV given that those are just average for midsize SUVs today.

Critics and consumers alike love the ruggedness look and feel of the interior along with its high functionality.  It does not go anywhere near low end with pretty comfortable and supportive seats along with spacious headroom and legroom.

Cargo capacity is above average of its class being able to hold up to 89.7 cubic feet.
