"Fake 4Runners?"

For years I have noticed that when Toyota changes body style, all the OTHER makers follow suit! What ones have you observed?

I'll start with new Range Rovers.

Only a 4Runner looks like a 4Runner.

If anything the owners make them all look the same.

I think Range Rovers have changed their shape 4X's since the 4Runner has?

Some 4runners are disguised as Ford Raptors. At least at night.

It's pretty common knowledge that automakers tend to follow similar design cues for the respective time. They are trying to sell cars to a population with specific tastes, after all.

That being said, I don't think the 4Runner looks like anything out now, other than a generic SUV from the side.

I don't think the 4Runner has any copycat manufacturers out there lol. It's shaped like a refrigerator. Who would want to bite off that design?

If anything it's the German manufacturers and high line luxury cars that do it most often. New 3 series BMW look like Lexus IS models and etc.

When you produce the same vehicle with the same look for over a decade, other companies will start to look similar
