1998 Toyota 4Runner Overview

The 1998 Toyota 4Runner finally gave drivers the additional power for which they had been searching: the base engine was now a 2.7-liter I4, with a 3.4-liter V6 as an option (and standard on some trims, such as the Limited).
Optional leather trim does make for a luxurious ride, although reviewers note that the SUV still feels a bit truck-like, whereas SUV's such as the Lexus RX300 have worked to integrate car-like comfort into their interiors.
Reviewers have also started to recognize that the 4RUnner gets good mileage-for an SUV. Estimates range from 15-22 mpg, depending on city or highway driving, as well as owner driving style.
