If I could get a D90 with the six cylinder hybrid and no options but the locker and tow hitch somewhere in the $50s, it'd be a genuinely tempting replacement for the 4Runner. The problem is, I won't be able to get that configuration (likely ever) but at least for a couple years, at which point this really won't look special. They'll sell great for what they are. I'm a decently hardcore offroader by 2019 standards/for someone who's still making payments and daily driving their off-road rig, and I think this actually looks like an excellent package. I daily drove an FJ62 for a couple of years, so you won't find me internet pining after the "old trucks" the way a bunch of people who have never driven one are.
I'd gladly pay a little more for one vehicle that would sit comfortably with the cruise at 85 mph and also get me to all the fishing and camping spots I like to go. However, at the rate Toyota is developing TNGA and the other options continue to overprice/underwhelm, it seems my mid-term strategy of hot hatch daily and cheap older Toyota for truck stuff is going to be more cost effective and realistic.
