While the 4Runner still looks great from the outside, it is stymied by a dated cabin and bad tech.

The 4Runner has pretty much looked the same since 2010.

That's not a bad thing, mind you. The exterior of this body-on-frame SUV still looks great, especially in this Lime Rush color.

There are a few new features, like standard LED lighting and rear occupancy alert across the board and most grades get blind-spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.

Under the hood is an ancient 4.0-liter V6 engine with 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque, mated to an equally archaic 5-speed automatic transmission.

The TRD Pro 4Runner is pretty terrible to drive on the pavement, but it shines in the dirt.

The TRD Pro features a Multi-Terrain Select system, which has modes for mud, sand, moguls and the like.
