Back on topic, the 4Runner of today reminds me of some Jeep models from the past, all bloated fender to make a soft style more agressive.
I still can't imagine paying top dollar for the 4Runner given that the Jeep gives you so much at the same price point.
I have to agree on the looks of the GC. If you woke up half bleary eyed and could not see the logos, you could easily mistake it for a BMW X5 or any one of the other variants of the "got punched in the side" design school.
If you think the 4Runner looks like a little girl wearing daddy's work clothes, take a look at the Tundra. Me, I blame it on the GM Hummer which was pretty much just a butched up Tahoe.
