1993 Toyota 4Runner Overview

The 1993 Toyota 4Runner continued to have many of the same qualities of other 2nd-generation 4Runners: very dependable, very reliable, poor gas mileage. However, it was the first year that the 2-door model was not available, as sales for the 4-door greatly overshadowed those of the smaller model.

The standard engine remained a 2.4-liter I4, with the step-up being a 3.0-liter V6. Both engines were available as all wheel drive, which now featured Toyota's 4WDemand shift-on-the-fly transmission.

Despite the advanced engines, reviewers continued to complain about a lack of power, while almost uniformly praising the remaining aspects of the SUV.
