1987 Toyota 4RunnerReview

Reliable, Sturdy 5-speed 4-wheel Drive. — Only a 4-banger so the acceleration is not great on a heavier car such as this, and the suspension is pretty tight so it's a bouncy ride, but the 4-wheel drive is great and lots of body work and painting had been done on both rear fender panels to make it look great. Gets about 25 mpg on the highway. Good handling for an SUV. Has a big cargo area and the shell on the back is removable, so it's great for carting dogs around! Auto-locking hubs are nice, and the car has pretty good heat and really strong factory air. Really sturdy and 22-RE engines will run forever!

Pros: Rides high for good vision
5-speed gives better mileage
4-wheel drive
Nice interior for age
22-RE engine
Good heat and air
Auto-locking hubs
Easy maintenance

Cons: Bouncy ride
Not much horsepower
20 mpg town
Only seats 4

1987 4runner — 24 years old and is still running. All original inside and out.Engine still original and is still running strong with 275,000 miles. It is a work horse and very dependable. Can still do 90MPH but I would not recommend pushing it this hard because of the age of the truck.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very cheap to maintain. Still gets 20MPG.

Cons: None

Back Seats Ranked 1987 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer 4-Door 4WD worse.
"The seat is only a little more comfortable. It has better back support."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1987 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer 4-Door 4WD better.
"All of the space in the back of this car is amazing. I have all of the things I need to survive 2 months, with room to spare. This includes food, clean drinking water. I have a cot, and a tent. I also keep tools and a tow strap and a come along. The spare tire is in there too. This is with my back seat up and ready to take passengers. It doesnt feel crowded or packed. There is still room in it. It also has a roof rack that I put a bag on. I havent needed to use the rack bag yet. Its there for looks now."

Review By Michael

Takes off when you want to but has a quiet engine. More fun to drive than any pickup I’ve ever been in. Audio/navigation screen is easy to use and to see. Very smooth, even at 95 mph. Read More
