I looked at the 4Runner but am holding on to my 2010 Honda Element for bike carry. I have the rear seats removed (it's now a 2 seater beater) and I can roll bikeS in with the front wheel ON, and can pack it floor to ceiling with gear. I wish Honda would restart the line but hope Toyota will come out with something just as good. Until then, I'm sticking with my old Element.
I looked at that, but Elements are rather old these days for when I was buying, and they still don't get great mileage. And I'd rather have a bit more ability to deal with rough roads which we do sometimes get here in Texas around race venues (especially trail runs). It's hard to argue that the Element is anything but a great vehicle too, but yes, not being current makes it less appealing (especially since they hold onto their resale like rabid wolves).
The point is, ladies and gentleman, that speed, for lack of a better word, is good. Speed is right, Speed works. Speed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.
