A 4Runner is a body-on-frame vehicle, so the body has the additional isolation of the rubber body mounts...a unibody like the RAV will transmit more of that "thonk" on the road joints.
Other than that, I find the RAV pretty quiet on the road. Of course, my previous vehicle was an old Tahoe, so I wasn't used to much quiet anyway.
