There are no 2013 Toyota 4Runner reviews. However, the following might be helpful:
The 4Runner is good for towing and off-roading, but is not the best family vehicle. The rough-sounding 4.0-liter V6 is powerful and relatively fuel-efficient. The ride is unsettled and handling is mediocre at best. A 'Trail' version is meant for serious off-road use. The 4WD system is a rudimentary part-time system, unless you upgrade to the Limited trim.

2013 4Runner SR5 by Nate - Denver on 01/27/2013. Trim: 2013 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4X4 V6, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The 4 runner has a huge cargo space and comfortable seating. Being one of the last few body on frame design SUV's on the market, and one of the last few with a true transfer case it's fairly capable off road well providing a smooth ride on road. The breaks are excellent, and the headlights provide really good viability at night. The fuel efficiency really exceeded my expectations I'm averaging 19.3 mpg with mainly city driving.
Cons: The V6 feels like its struggling at lower speeds to get the truck rolling but one you're over 40 maintaining speed is no problem at lower elevations. Living in Colorado I do find that when climbing in the mountains I have to manually down shift the automatic transmission to produce enough torque to pass on the highway. Toyota really seemed to engineer the transmission with fuel economy in mind so the truck doesn't feel like it has a lot of low end grunt to it, most of the power comes in around 3500 to 5000 rmps.
Overall review: Overall this is a really solid feeling truck with ample room to take the whole family camping or to the lake, well still providing relatively good gas mileage for a larger SUV. I refer to it as a truck because behind the wheel this is really what it feels like. The new 4Runner doesn't drive with the car like feel you get from other more car based CUV's i.e. the Grand Cherokee, Ford Explorer, Chevy Traverse or the new Nissan Pathfinder. The 4Runner really stays true to the SUV feel and performance. One note if you off road at all is the turning radiance is wide due to the long wheelbase so keep that in mind well picking your path on the trail. However the long wheelbase makes this truck a really nice ride on the road. It's much more comfortable than a traditional truck. The only things that left me wanting was for a transmission that made better use of low and mid range torque or a V8 option.
