The 3.3 v6 in my daughters Solara sure runs good. Did they ever put that engine in a Tacoma/4Runnder?
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

Definitely not in the Tacoma's and I highly doubt 4runners.

I have the 3.4 V6 in my '01 Tacoma. I've had it since 2005 and have had no major issues. It has always gotten 18 mpg on average.

How many mile's? I have an 02 with the 3.4 and have 365K with no issues. Doesn't use or leak any oil. Far superior to my 3.0's

I put a new tranny and rebuilt the rear end at 200k. Wondering how many my 4.0 can last. It has tons of power

Only 230K, I have a small oil leak that I need to attend to one of these days but itís pretty minor.

I have a 2017 Tacoma TRD off-road with the 3,5 engine. I get 18-19 mpg in normal driving. But we have driven it to Phoenix twice and both times have got a little over 21 mpg and that is figuring mpg based on gallons of gas and miles driven. We always have back seat full of luggage and other things. We are retired so we have lots of time and stay at 70 mph and donít try to go 70 over the passes. I also donít use cruise control going over the passes. I also have a 2003 tundra with v8 that gets good mileage and has a lot of power.

Don't forget the gen4's that had the 4.7 v8 option. THAT was the best ever in a 4runner!

In a 4wd crew cab, you're looking at a V6. If they even put a 2.7 in that configuration, there are very few out there.
Up to 04 the V6 was a 3.4. So-so power, good reliability, uses a timing belt. With their age, the valve covers will likely leak if they haven't been replaced already. I can squeeze 19mpg out of mine on the highway at 65mph.
05 to 2015 was a 4.0. Good power, good reliability, uses a timing chain. First 2 years did have some head gasket issues at higher mileage. There's a belief that those early head gaskets were more susceptible to failure if coolant changes were ignored.
The automatic transmissions in both generations were pretty much bombproof.
The 05-15 models tend to go through front wheel bearings.
The 2.7s are fantastic engines. With a stick they're peppy. With an auto, not so much. I've had 2 rigs with a 2.7 and could get 22mpg highway.
