7. Toyota 4Runner
If you live in a remote area that sees several feet of snow every year, you probably don’t need to look much further than the Toyota 4Runner. One of the last truck-based SUVs, the 4Runner has been in production for 20 years and has earned a rock-solid reputation over that time. One of the most off-road-capable SUVs on the market today, the 4Runner has steadily built up a (much deserved) reputation as being both extremely reliable and able to go anywhere. Buy the 4-wheel-drive version and you should have no trouble pushing through more than a few inches of the white stuff. That being said, the reason we can’t rank the 4Runner higher is that it does particularly well only in deep snow at slower speeds (and preferably off-road). On snowy roads you would likely be better off with some of our other picks.
