2002 Toyota 4Runner Overview

After a power-enhancing 2001 model year, the 2002 Toyota 4Runner remained unchanged.

The base engine remained a 3.4-liter V6 rated at 183 horsepower and 217 lb/ft of torque. The styling is appropriately unisex, making the car popular with both men and women. The interior is spacious and car-like, with available leather trim and a well-laid out instrument panel.

Highway passing in the 4Runner is much easier than it used to be; no reviewers seem to miss the I4. The ride is primarily smooth, though can get a little shaky as the SUV ages.
