BASE PRICE RANGE: $30,335-$40,495
BODY TYPE: Midsize SUV
WHAT'S NEW: The four-cylinder 4Runner has been dropped for 2011 leaving the 4.0L V-6 making 270 hp as the only engine. Otherwise, there are only minor changes for 2011: The SUV receives a new brake override system. In addition, Trail and two-row Limited models receive a sliding cargo tray/cargo organizer as a standalone option.
AVOID: Hoping Toyota will drop the company's 4.6L V-8 in the 4Runner, as it may never happen.
SUM UP: Cool, capable off-roader.
