George Kennedy Test Drive Review:

If you’re in the market for a modern SUV capable of getting off the beaten path, you have only a handful of options. These include the 2- and 4-door Jeep Wranglers, the Jeep Cherokee T...

Cargo Capacity Ranked 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD worse.
"The 4Runner probably has close to double the cargo capacity of the FJ Cruiser. That being said, the FJ was never designed as a weekend/holiday surplus store shopping vehicle."
Would Buy Ranked 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD worse.
"I would buy the 4Runner over the FJ for one reason alone... rear seat access/sitting room. The suicide doors on the FJ are a cool-looking design feature, but they are 100% impractical for daily parking lot/garage use as well as if you have a family to transport to and from school/sports/etc. The 4Runner is far more capable as a family-focused vehicle in my opinion."
