I understand the general and historic auto industry logic behind that, but "lots of kinks?" Unless Toyota decides to introduce entirely new and unproven tech in the 6th gen (which I doubt) I would not be concerned about kinks. I have a 2010 (first year of the 5th Gen) and it has been fantastic and I think that is the prevailing sentiment with the early 5th gens on this forum.

Itís hard to give advice since everyone has different priorities and resources. But I wouldnít replace a 2014 5th gen with under 100K miles with another 5th gen, especially with a redesign on the near horizon. Unless youíre worried about the 6th gen being a disappointment. Iíd at least wait to see what the 6th gens look like. If Toyota screws up with the 6th gen, you can always pick up a used 5th gen Limited down the road.

If fuel economy is a concern, I wouldn't even own a 4Runner, but for the purpose of this comparison it's about the same to me.

In other markets it is called the Land Cruiser Prado, but it has a ton in common with the 4Runner. The older GX 470 was very similar to the 4th gen 4Runner in that even parts like suspension, sliders, dual battery kit, were all interchangeable parts. GX 460 got even more bougie.

Compared to the 4Runner it has a similar size, shape, and capability. Still a body on frame 4x4 SUV, just wearing a tuxedo.

Styling has grown on me significantly over the years, but I had the same opinion as you at one point in time as well. To a degree I still consider the 4Runner a better looking truck, but to be honest I donít really care about that stuff. I just want a nice truck that has more refined amenities, materials, and trim.

The Lexus V8 is super smooth with a nice quiet cabin. It's just a better driving SUV overall.
I was in the Emirates from 1998 to 2004 and had a Prado 4L V6 from 2000 to 2004. Fantastic vehicle. Put 120,000K on it and took it to the desert and beat it up on camping trips every weekend. Only needed oil changes. Wanted to bring it back to Canada but the importation process scared me off. The Lexus GX series look just like them. I almost bought one but couldn't swallow the price premium over the 4runner which is a great vehicle.

There has been a lot of upgrades to the 5th model to model since 2010. Follow your heart I doubt you will have any regrets.
