Why in the name of all that is holy would Toyota make the 4Runner look like an outtake from Mitsubishi’s design studio? The aggressively… interesting… front end could only have been stolen from Mitsubishi’s Raider pickup, which itself was built on the Dodge Dakota platform. It wasn’t handsome then, it isn’t handsome now, but it is exactly the look Toyota wanted for its serious off-road mid-size SUV. This thing looks like a barking dog Transformer, ready to rip off your leg and feed it to you.
