2010 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range Mid size and large SUVs are not good on fuel economy. While shopping this market fuel economy was a consideration. Fuel economy is projected at 17 mpg in the city and 22-23 mpg on the highway. This is one of the leaders for vehicles in this class.
2008 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range Higher than average for this size and type of vehicle.
2007 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range Best mileage for a vehicle that can tow 5,000 pounds. 21mpg in the summer for my typical daily driving.

2011 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range Not really bad, but how about a hybrid? A Prius 4runner?
2007 4dr SUV 260-hp 4.7L V8 5-sp automatic AWD w/low range Getting an average of 16-17MPG with V8, but I expected that
2007 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range The dash readout is optimistic. I often though I was getting over 25mpg only to calculate as low as 14--on the highway! Ultimately, this was the 4Runners undoing. I traded it for a much more efficient Camry.
2007 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range If fuel cost is a concern, then this is definitely not the vehicle to have. Manages 18mpg combined if driven carefully. Does what it does extremely well so nothing unexpected.
2006 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic RWD less than 20 MPG in the city.
2006 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range Lousy mileage around town. ~ 18.
2005 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range This is obvious
2004 4dr SUV 260-hp 4.7L V8 5-sp automatic AWD w/low range I knew going in that it would use a lot, but it still makes me grimace. Still, when we had a foot of new snow and I was driving around stalled and tire-spinning vehicles with absolutely no difficulty (on Michelin all-seasons), you figure that it balances.
2004 4dr SUV 270-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range Not that I dislike the 4runners fuel economy, actually for a large sport utility it does pretty good, just done buy a suv if your looking to get good gas mileage.
2004 4dr SUV 260-hp 4.7L V8 5-sp automatic AWD w/low range It uses quite a bit of gas, I average 16 l/ 100km, or roughly about 15 mpg, and I do fair bit of highway driving.
