2018 Toyota 4Runner vs 2018 Toyota Highlander

Whether you are looking for a crossover or an SUV, Toyota offers drivers two very suitable midsize vehicle options. Toyota's well-known midsize crossover, the Toyota Highlander, is a great option for drivers looking for a smooth ride. The Highlander has a unibody construction which means that the body and frame are in one piece making it smooth and nimble when driving. The Toyota 4Runner however, is considered an SUV because its body is built on the frame giving it a truck-based platform. This offers drivers a stiffer handling when traveling on and off the road. Both the Highlander and the 4Runner are available in 4-wheel drive to make it easier to handle rain, snow, ice and your uncharted adventures. The 2018 Toyota Highlander and the 2018 Toyota 4Runner are great options for drivers looking for a new mid-sized vehicle that is reliable and durable.
