mom is about to buy one of these cars on Thursday but cant decide. 4 runner is very tough looking and bigger but highlander is sleek and more mom like. LOL...Both with be fully decked out limiteds. Can get Highlander limited with nav for 36k or 4 runner limited with nav for 38k. we looked at all the suvs in the market in this range and the toyotas crush the competition. Anyone one own one of these new 2011's

I think they are both decent looking vehicles. I like the 4runner a little more because it's less blah-toyota looking.

I'd Go with the 4Runner, My buddy just traded in his older model 4Runner lasted for 19xk miles.... He picked up loaded 2011 Tundra..

I'm not a huge Toyota fan. I kinda like the 4Runner because of the ride and engine. But the mpg is comparable to a Tahoe.

I'm with you. I'd buy any GM SUV over any Toyota SUV. Hell the new Explorers look promising too.

Hands down man the 4 Runner. It looks pretty sweet.

I have a 2010 Camry SE, with the 18" TRD rims and its a damn sweet car. Its actually the wifes. Wife would trade it for a 4 Runner in a heartbeat..LOL.

The camry and nissan maxima IMO, look better than any other 4 door sedan that GM, Dodge, Ford offers.

Lol...I still think it was an act by congress to fuck over Toyota so GM can get out of bankruptcy and pay back their money...everyone looks good in the end...

I love the new Maxima's. The Tahoe's are friggen beastly, idk what y'all are smoking. And everything is overpriced, been looking at new cars lately and I simply can't put my mind around how people can afford this shit. No wonder everyone is complaining about how they are in debt etc, they are buying all this shit they can't afford.

I have been in both, I think the highlander has a little smoother/nicer interior but it is your typical Toyota. My vote is Highlander.

Y'all should look around a little more, there are a lot of options out there, I like the Acura RDX. The Mazda CX7's are cool but the interior isn't as nice as the others.

I'd go with the 4runner.............and having said that, I'd rather own & drive a 100,000 mile 4runner then a 0 mile Tahoe.

LOL, shit ross, no way does a damn ford, chevy, dodge 4 door sedan look better than the camry or maxima. The damn malibu/impala look damn near the same. Ford fusion looks somewhat decent, and all of dodge cars use the same front end..LMAO.. Now, im not talking about performance such as SS or SRT models. Im talking as far as looks wise. Here is a pic of my wifes car. The camry/maxima are 2 of the better looking sedan cars out there. All the big 3 did was just put a shiny grill on the front of their cars to give it a cool look..LMAO

Has she driven both? My wife has an 04 4 runner and other than the ride height it dosen't feel truck like at all to me. It's much more narrow than my 08 Tundra which is a pain in the ass to park. I'm currently driving a Subaru Impreza and I can take and park her 4 runner anywhere the Impreza fits.

the 11's are much bigger and wider. I think they did a good job with it

If you would buy a dodge over a toyota you are the dumbest retard ever. If you like your vehicles being worth 1/2 what you paid for them in 1 year then all the power to ya bro

Mother in law has a highlander and can't think of anything spectacular about it. Personally I most care about what a vehicle looks like and with that, toyota would be the last company I would buy a vehicle from.

Def a lame interior. I had trouble getting my wife to go along with it due to the interior, loaded or not. Hell I'm still pissed I bought it instead of an srt8. Thanks ls1tech.

Looking at your current and previously owned vehicles it doesn't appear "interior" is on the priority list for you either, lol.

Before the tbss my wife had an 04 and 06 mazda. They really do a great job with the interiors and we never had a single issue with ours. The cx-9s are pretty nice.

My mom bought a new CX-7 about 3 years back. It had a little pep with the turbo and I thought the interior was pretty good. After about a year, she ended up trading it in on a loaded Acura MDX.

Ya they are cool. This one is the grand touring bigger cx-9. I was shocked how nice it was and the price was awesome. Nav, leather, sunroof, 3rd row, power lift gate, 20's, zenon headlights, led taillights..and much more for 32,800. Cant beat that.

Mazda's are the bomb. I would definitely rock one if I was in the market and needed a vehicle like that.

At the risk of taking a stone to the head here, I would definitely consider a Hyundai vehicle at this point also. Not sure what they have in the SUV segment but they are getting the act together.

Toyota's are very nice but the GMC AWD acadia denali would be my first choice.

Bolded options are what my mom's CX-7 did not have and are the 2 big reasons she ended up trading it in.

Yeah. I bought mine used with 11k miles on it 2.5 years ago. It now has 37k miles and the market value is actually higher now than it was when I bought it.
