Which SUV is better: 4Runner or Pilot?

A real SUV is capable, and part of that capability comes from the drivetrain. The Pilot comes standard with a front-wheel drive configuration much like a car and can be upgraded to all-wheel drive. The 4Runner is built more like a truck with rear-wheel drive as the standard option and available four-wheel drive on every trim level. In fact, many of the trim levels for the 4Runner are four-wheel drive only.

When you want to get a job done or even go off-road you need torque and in that battle, the 4Runner wins easily. That’s because this SUV has a standard 4.0-liter V6 under the hood supplying 278 pound-feet of torque and 270 horsepower.

The 4Runner puts that power to work too as it can tow up to 5,000 pounds standard. That’s enough to bring your boat or ATV along for the ride. Towing is just the start of the story though as the 4Runner also gives you a lot more room in back. What’s more, you can optimize that rear cargo room by getting a 4Runner with two rows of seating instead of three.
