  • Honestly this is the most biased review I have ever watched, you focused so much on uplifting the defender ( you can't even compare it to the other SUVs) and focused much more on making the 4Runner look like a cheap shit, and basically we all know that 4Runner beat them all. I have a jeep and i can tell you 4runners are much much more reliable, yes jeep has a great gear and its outdated much more than the BS you talked about the 4runner engine. Also the trails you tested, my other crossover ( NISSAN rogue) can easily pass them, and trying to say that you used all what the 4runner had from bells and whistles to be able to go up that hill, is remarkably ridiculous. Thanks for the video though, pretty much well shot and edited, and still gave the real offroaders an idea.

  • Toyota should make Active traction control (A-Trac) come on automatically in 4-LO, so the non-savvy reviewers have a better driving experience. Looks to me that at 17:27 into the video, the Jeep is doing some sort of a-trac automatically in 4-Lo. 🤔

  • I thought this video was comical. When I’m Moab and St. George wheeling, I pull/help more Rubicon’s with my “outdated” 4th Gen 4Runner than I can count. And Defender owners are constantly complaining about their rigs when I ask em if they need help. Call me old fashioned but I think slightly worse gas mileage is cheaper than the repairs my Jeep buddies are constantly doing

  • The Land Rover might be the best STOCK off road vehicle. But the Apple (anti-aftermarket and lack of reparability + cost) aspect of the Land Rover is a strong mark against it for serious use commercially or far in the middle of nowhere where you might need to repair it with limited services.

  • The Defender name was only applied in 1990 when the 200Tdi engine was put in. Before that it was Land Rover One Ten or Ninety. The One Ten was released first 1983 as it was an evolution of the Series 3 Stage one V8 109 vehicles. The Ninety had to be released later as they had not produced a Stage one V8 88 vehicle so the chassis and axles had to be adapted to the wider track and coil springs. Why Land Rover saw fit to mimic this with the New 110 & 90 release dates is anyone's guess. Why it's a very capable vehicle, what everyone who reviews it seems to miss is that the old Defender, One Ten and Ninety were so popular because you could fix them easily and add anything you wanted aftermarket due to the meccano like build. The New Defender had lost all that, and nearly tripled the price.

  • The people who review these vehicles are oblivious to one of the most important considerations of buyers - Longevity / Durability. Their ignorance is pretty evident in this video. They wonder why people still buy the 4 runner even though its old. But for any buyer with two brain cells its obvious that a $60,000 vehicle with a 6 cylinder naturally aspirated engine and 5 speed transmission have bulletproof reliability over the flashy piles of junk from Crysler and Land rover which will depreciate like a falling rock and start giving problems within 4 years.

  • Go to a used car lot and let’s do the % of how many used wranglers are on the lot to 4 Runners. I have two Toyota’s, one 18 yrs old and the other 9, my nephew used Wrangler is on the lift at least once a month for something and it’s not doing anything crazy, basically a mall crawler. The Older Jeep’s were made a lot better, 1998 and lower. If your really looking to do anything crazy your better off getting and old vehicle and building up your self that’s if you have a budget of $50,000. So these 3 guys are catering to soccer moms & weekend warriors.

  • This new defender is for people in the Midwest and east coast who drive to Whole Foods. If I ever saw a defender out in the hills in Nevada I would assume they never go off road, bought this to look cool, and I would say to them “are you ok? you know people have guns up here right? These rocks and roads are rough on city tires and big rims, I better follow you to make sure you get home safe”. Land Rover ruined the new Defender, its for wet noodle tech guys with skinny pants. If you want to actually overland or go off road you need a Toyota or a Jeep, or even a Lexus GX. My mother has a Range Rover and all she does is drive to play pickle ball and even she made fun of guys who drive the new defender.

  • that guy has NO CLUE about 4runners. he said the 4runner doesn't have a ton of options, the TRD Pro has a rear locker, A-Trac, multi terrain select and crawl control. he only mentioned the crawl control and the rear locker. the trail edition and I believe TRD Off-Road has KDSS + everything the Pro has. (auto swaybar disconnect). I have the trail edition WITH KDSS. he also talks about the old transmission. Yes the DESIGN is old, but Toyota hasn't changed it because it's nearly bullet proof. even hardcore Jeep owners admit they wish they had such a bullet proof design. why do you think we're still seeing used 3rd or 4th gen 4runners with 200-300k going for so much money still? you KNOW Toyota has some new bullet proof transmission in some secret underground bunker somewhere that they've likely been testing and improving for decades before they feel it's ready for the prime time. after all these years with such a reliable motor and trans combo, they've built a reputation they CAN'T fuck up, they HAVE to get it right. perfection takes time...in Toyotas case a lot longer than we would like, but I'd take a motor and trans combo that'll last 500,000+ miles of hard use than something maybe slightly more efficient that'll need to be replaced or repaired after 100k of hard use. I beat the absolute donkey shit outta my 5th gen with 120k on it, 50k of those likely off-road (I don't drive much on road unless it's on my way to the trails. All I have is a Bilstein 5100 2.5" lift on all 4 corners and some BFG K02's for feet, everything else is stock, UPCs LCAs, links, rods, everything even stock springs!. every group run I've been on, the Jeep guys always howl as they watch me climb up and over rocks on stupid, butt puckering inclines with only the smallest amount of wheel spin, BEFORE I LOCK THE DIFF. they love when I come out to play with them. when shit gets real harry, I switch to multi-terrain select and choose whatever terrain I'm going up, usually loose rocks or worse, when it's worse, I lock the rear, when shit gets even worse, I throw on A-Trac, when it's worse than that I lock the rear AND engage A-Trac, when it's even worse, I engage crawl control, sit back and relax as my 4runner crawls up whatever I aim the nose at. Crawl control also works as hill decent assist, it's brilliant! I live on the west coast of Canada in BC, our off-road trails cover all sorts of terrain, from thick rain forest mud, loose rocks, rivers and beach sand, to the rocky mountains. my 4runner does it all with a smirk on its face the whole way.... and I don't even rock a winch. the 4runner doesn't have a lot of options and is old? yeah ok buddy, ok. /rant

    • They can rant and moan about how old the drive train is on 4 runners but Toyota laughs about it all the way to the bank because of the massive amount of them they sell and because the resale value holds better than probably any other mass produced car or truck. A lot of people especially those looking to buy a utility vehicle would rather buy older but proven than newer and unproven. Toyota understands that.
