2007 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6

Best mileage for a vehicle that can tow 5,000 pounds. 21mpg in the summer for my typical daily driving. see full Toyota 4Runner review

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. see full Toyota 4Runner review
