Feb. 27, 2014: Body-on-frame construction makes 2014 4Runner the only “true SUV” in The Fast Lane Car’s Top 10 Most Fun to Drive Car Awards February 25, 2014 TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 25, 2014 – Wind whips through your hair and sparkling ocean waters whiz by as you cruise up the coast – that’s how movies portray the fun driving experience. This year The Fast Lane Car (tflcar.com) rolls over that notion. The 2014 Toyota 4Runner, with its rugged good looks and adventurous off-roading capabilities, has been named to tflcar.com’s fifth annual Top 10 Most Fun to Drive Car Awards.

The editorial staff at tflcar.com reviews vehicles year-round, experiencing them in a variety of settings and climates. At the end of each year, 10 vehicles are awarded “most fun to drive.” These vehicles put smiles on faces and impart a Joie de Vivre. The 4Runner is one of these vehicles, noted for how it is, “pretty serious off-road, a lot of fun to drive” and “one of the last true SUVs.”

The 4Runner is the only body-on-frame sport utility vehicle (SUV) to make this year’s 10 list, which includes luxury brands, performance vehicles and consumer favorites. To qualify, vehicles had to be a 2014 model year and driven/tested by tflcar.com’s staff within the 2013 calendar year.

“These automobiles may or may not be the fastest, the most powerful, or the most expensive, but they are certainly the most interesting cars that we’ve driven in the past year, and that’s why we’re proud to announce they made our list,” said Roman Mica, tflcar.com publisher.
