This Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition is rugged enough and fully equipped for going off-road to hunt, hike, climb or for a day at the shore and is good looking enough to take to the Commodores Ball at the Yacht Club or the Ducks Unlimited dinner.  Going off-road?  In addition to four wheel drive, Westin brush guards, fog lights and running boards (over $2,000 aftermarket cost), it comes with skid plates, a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS), and increased clearance.  For really tough terrain, there is crawl control, downhill assist control and active traction control.  And it runs so quiet; you can drive up on many beautiful sights without being noticed. It tows boats and trailers with ease using an integrated tow hitch receiver with both 4-pin & 7-pin connector wiring harnesses.

For a day at the beach or running errands, you get plenty of cargo space, roof rails that will take standard paddleboard or kayak racks, Cargo area lighting w/"tailgating" speaker amplifier feature for outside entertainment, two 120V outlets, and a retractable rear floor that makes loading easy or acts as a picnic table.

The interior projects rugged, functional good looks.  No leather and fancy displays.  Cloth front bucket seats, -including 6-way manual driver seat w/power lumbar, 2nd row 40/20/40 split reclining fold-flat cloth bench seat, power glass moon roof, manual control for A/C, electronic door locks and windows, AM/FM stereo w/CD/MP3 player, including: SIRIUS XM satellite radio, Bluetooth music streaming wireless technology, (8) speakers. (2) aux audio input jacks, USB Port, 12V DC power outlets,  hands free cellular and all of the little storage spots and cup holders you need.

In almost 50,000 miles of driving, most of it highway miles to my hunt camp in Alabama (10 trips @ 3,000 milels per trip), this car, with a 24 gal. tank, averaged 19 mpg which can be measured with the multi-information display for time, fuel consumption, cruise range, temperature and compass. It cruises great at highway speeds using a user friendly cruise control.  The front & rear stabilizer bars, front & rear shock absorbers, independent double wishbone front suspension w/coil springs, and power 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes along with a 4.0L DOHC 24-valve VVT-i V6 engine and 5-speed ECT automatic transmission w/OD -including sequential shift mode give you all the power and control you need.

Total auto recalls already on record pace in 2014

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:30:00 EST

If you've noticed that there have been more recalls than usual this year, you may be on to something. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the US market is on pace to break a record for recalls. In 2013, 22 million cars were recalled. We're only a third of the way through 2014, though, and we've already halved that figure, with 11 million units recalled. That's wild.
Considering the past few months, it shouldn't be a surprise that General Motors is leading the charge, with six million of the 11 million units recalled coming from one of the General's four brands. Between truck recalls, CUV recalls and the ignition switch recall, 2014 hasn't been a great year for GM.
Other recall leaders include Nissan (one million Sentra and Altima sedans), Honda (900,000 Odyssey minivans), Toyota (over one million units in a few recalls), Volkswagen (150,000 Passat sedans), Chrysler (644,000 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs) and most recently, Ford (434,000 units, the bulk of which were early Ford Escape CUVs). So while it's been a bad year for GM so far, its competitors aren't doing too well, either.

Four Wheeler crowns Ultimate Factory 4x4... who wins?

Thu, 15 Nov 2012 11:31:00 EST

Nearly every automaker doing business in the SUV or pickup truck segments offers a package designed to improve the off-road capabilities of its wares. But, of course, not all such factory kits are created equal. How, then, to separate the wheat from the chaff? Gather each of them up and put them through their paces, naturally.
The folks from Four Wheeler and PickupTrucks.com joined forces to run just such a comparison test, with the winner named the Ultimate Factory 4x4. A total of seven vehicles showed up to the fight: the 2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2012 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X and Xterra PRO-4X, 2012 Ram Power Wagon, and 2012 Toyota 4Runner Trail and Tacoma TRD T|X Baja Series.
With the contestants in place, the whole crew put each vehicle through a battery of tests that included skidpad and acceleration measurements, a hillclimb, a rocky stairstep course and a rock garden. Considering the nature of the beasts, on-road ride and comfort were not part of the routine.

2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Ultimate Edition

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 12:01:00 EST

Introduced at the end of 2006, this is the last year for the Toyota FJ Cruiser, the reincarnated FJ40-series Land Cruiser that will shortly journey to Takama-ga-hara, the Plain of High Heaven. In its first model year, we drove it to SEMA and found it, shall we say, coarse. It bobbled on the freeway and droned in the cabin, its boxy interior providing four bounce-boards for unpleasant frequencies. Tall mirrors helped one work around the eclipse of vision aft of the B-pillars, but navigating traffic required forethought and technique. Its turning circle was measured in kilometers. For the first two years of its life, it needed premium gas. It may have been fun to look at, but we couldn't wait to get out of it.
That's not the case anymore, and now the FJ Cruiser is poised to join a long list of vehicles that got better and better, then got axed.
