I've owned a few of these. They improve a lot from model to model. This particular model is the first one to feel a bit less powerful than the last. My last one felt a bit faster off the line despite having less horsepower, that said, it has all the power I need. It is roomier in the third row also, which is a major improvement. It also has all the tech stuff that you'd expect like a backup camera and bluetooth... If I were to be disappointed with anything it would be the fuel economy. I know that as a company, Toyota has many diesel engines that it could have put in this truck, yet they did not. It feels like they design 4Runnersputting reliability ahead of everything else from fit and finish to raw performance. This is great for somebody like me who will keep it for 8 to 10 years and put on very heavy mileage in crazy / extreme conditions, but I'm not sure how the average person would feel.
