$40k for 280hp and drum brakes.
Slow on the highway and drinks fuel like a V8.
The interior is cramped in the back with adults and rattles and squeaks as much as your average domestic shitbox.
If you look on yota forums you'll find out that they still have their fair share of mechanical issues.

Simultaneously very good and overrated.
I'm asspained that they stopped making the FJ, srs.
Bad? No, it's a real SUV. Has actual ground clearance, "pretty good" space, 4x4 and all that.

Fuel economy and power aren't great, and it's just about a "fullsize" (large) vehicle. V6 power, V8 mileage. The worst of both.
It's big on the outside, it's "eh" on the inside, the worst of both.
Reality: those "slightly larger" vehicles with muh V8s are usually significantly more expensive.

"value wise", It's not that luxurious, not that comfy - I'd rather have a jeep wrangler offroad (solid axes > IFS, amongst other things).

But it's "Good enough" at a enough things.
Garbage? No, no.
Good? Yes.
Would you like it? I think so.
"perfect, don't consider any alternatives" - No. Think about the reasons you want to get one, then compare it to other things that do that task.

If at the end you walk away with the 4runner, cool. If you needed more specialization in say, people comfort, highways, etc? Alright.

Am not super familiar with the Armada

Speaking out my ass for a moment though

I will say it appears that for MY preferences an armada might have been a better alternative to the 4runner, (space power etc).

But that $50k Armada, gets close to that "Well for a little more" you can get yourself a Lexus GX. Comfyguy edition 4Runner with a V8.
But looking at the front of that GX now, I don't see much offroading going on in that.

SFA are better for trucks in the 3/4 and 1ton class, many of those spend a lot of time on paved surfaces my main man.

Here's the problem with all of you. The 4Runner is an old school body on frame SUV. It's an SUV. Therefore it's going to do SUV things. Bad fuel mileage. Not too comfy. Not great power for serious towing and such.

So when you guys say fuel economy sucks or the interior is meh or it's just a glorified minivan, you're treating it like the very thing it's avoided becoming: a crossover.

If you want better MPGs with a more comfy interior with light (VERY light) offroad capabilities, it's called the Highlander.

Moving goalposts

1) I'm a mopar guy, I'm no GT-R apologist. I think the Vette's a sweet machine, and considering Ford won't sell you a GT nor can you buy one from someone, it's vaporware. Vette's more desirable than that boostlet turd.

2)You didn't specify the SFA hatred, I specified my preference to the context of offroaders. You were the one who sperged out.
I corrected you for forgetting big trucks.
Sloppiness is your fault not mine, "Faggot".

3) Blackpeople brand, not sure what you're sperging about here

4) I'm not a nissan guy, I'm humoring the armada as a neat vehicle, an alternative dollar for dollar in the 4runners price-bracket.

5) Grab the decaf mate.

Well user, there are two types of bodies for cars. Unibody and Body on Frame. Unibody cars are a shell, like a skeleton that all the parts go into. Body on frame is when there are two parts of a car, the body and frame. The frame has the drive train, the stuff that makes it move. The body is the place where you put yourself. You can drive a body on frame vehicle without the body. Body on frame is cheaper to produce and better for towing but unibody is safer and more connected than a body on frame. Picture is a Chevy's body and it's frame being separated.

I'm actually a big Land Cruiser fan. Had half a dozen in the family over the years and they're incredibly reliable family vehicles. They tend to rust out before they break which speaks about their build quality.

It was a Grand Cherokee rented to us because the Ridgeline was part of the airbag recall. We needed something that could tow, transport at least 5 people, and had covered cargo space. Literally the only thing rental companies had available was a Grand Cherokee. All of their pickup trucks were missing cappers, and we needed covered space for the dog.

Insurancefag here, you can rent pretty much anything you fucking idiot. We routinely authorize rentals for BMWs, Mercs, Porsches, and other vehicles for our clients. A lot of them are dealing with clients and they have an image to maintain. A real estate agent selling a 3.4 million dollar home can't roll up in a fucking Camry, so we authorize a rental Merc to hold them over while we repair their owned/leased Merc.

Grand Cherokees are a dime a dozen you dense pleb, why do you think they're some kind of high end, expensive luxury vehicle?
