12. 2016 Toyota 4Runner
For off-road use, the Toyota 4Runner is a popular option. Critics have commented on the superior off-road performance of this V6-powered SUV, but they say that performance on paved roads is a little lacking. The base 4Runner has an estimated fuel economy of 17/22 mpg city/highway, which is indeed poor for SUVs of this size. Auto writers have mentioned that more gears for the transmission would help reduce engine noise and make this SUV less of a gas-guzzler.
Standard features for the 4Runner include a USB port, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, satellite radio and an Entune touch-screen infotainment system. Optional features include a power moonroof, a JLB audio system and leather upholstery. The interior of the 4Runner is designed for durability instead of luxury, with rivals surpassing it in the realm of high-end additions. The first- and second-row seats are roomy, but the third row may feel slightly cramped to adult passengers.
