Re: Round two... 2011 GC vs 4Runner

Ive seen a couple new 4runners....they are ok...but nothing as nice as the 2011 WK2. And...you have to buy the special offroad edition of the 4runer to get one as capable as most wk2's. Plus the interiors looked like a cheap econo cars...

The Trail Edition comes with all the offroad goodies, but the other two models (SR5 & Limited) are also very capable. The Limited comes with a torsen center diff (lockable) and ATRAC, but has goofy 20" wheels with low profile tires. The SR5 doesn't have a center diff at all (but still has ATRAC) and is basically the same as a Trail Edition without the extra offroad features. Any of the three is perfectly fine offroad, especially if you ditch those 20" Limited wheels/tires for something a bit more suited for offroad duty.

Re: Round two... 2011 GC vs 4Runner

The 4runner has the awkward blocky interior styling of the FJ (who likes that shit anyway?) terrible.

The FJ Cruiser will be history soon. I think it might see one more model year at the most. So a lot of guys speculate that they made the new 4Runner more like the FJ in terms of styling (inside and out) to attract a combination of 4Runner and FJ guys.

Personally, I never liked the styling of the FJ....so it should be no surprise that I don't like the new 4Runner either.

That wwould be a very strange styling choice. The FJ was odd looking, with some styling tricks to make it look like it was purpose built...the hatch spare tire bump with first aid kit!

Re: Round two... 2011 GC vs 4Runner

Odd why they compared a trail edition to a JGC without the off road adventure 2 package. It seems like the most comparable T4R would have been the Limited, both having 20" tires.

They may not have had a directly comparable model in the press fleet. The media doesn't get to specify exactly what they'd like on the test vehicles. The manufacturer puts a few vehicles in the press fleet, and that's what is available.

Evidently you took my post at face value and did not pick up on my sarcastic/tongue-in-cheek behaviour.

You will have a much better time here if you build a bridge, then walk over it.

I deleted my post after I realized that my sig is still in place. For some reason, it no longer appears when I post.

Either way, I couldn't care less if you can read my posts or deleted posts. I don't like your attitude and you really should try harder to set an example as a co-owner or whatever the hell you consider yourself.
