    Hey guys and gals, new member, new 4Runner. I have been a member over on Tacoma world for a little while, but I just traded in my 2017 Tacoma for a 2018 4Runner Off Road.

    I am not new to Toyota's or four wheeling, but I am looking forward to getting the new 4Runner out.

    Here are photos of the truck and new ride. IMG_0682.jpg

    Welcome aboard! How are you liking the difference in the area of torque coming from the 3.5 to the 4.0?

    Neither are race cars but the 4Runner is so much smoother on acceleration. And quieter and with less vibration. The Tacoma went fine when I stepped on it. But for in-town driving the 4Runner is much more pleasant.

    To me, the linear power delivery and predictability makes it a much more pleasant driving experiance. It has a power curve that I am a lot more used to.

    Overall I think it is a much nicer vehicle, but not a world of difference. And that is exactly what I was hoping for.

    Plus, fitting in my garage with the bike rack and two bikes is really nice
