The market is brimming with likable five- and seven-passenger crossovers, but only a few midsize SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner. What's the difference? The 4Runner sits atop a truck platform and can easily take you through the deepest snow and potholes on your way to work, or on a true off-road adventure if that's your thing.
What's New for 2016
The 4Runner receives minor equipment upgrades only.
Choosing Your Toyota 4Runner
Every 4Runner gets a 4-liter V6 with 270 horsepower and a five-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive with low-range gearing is either standard or available on all trim levels. Owing to the 4Runner's truck roots, all examples come with a tow hitch, underbody protective plates, and hill start and descent assists. The third row available on some models boosts seating capacity to seven.
Toyota offers the 4Runner in six trim levels to suit almost every need:
The SR5 and Limited are geared toward active families who want a go-anywhere vehicle with room for everyone. The Trail is the choice for drivers who regularly leave the road for recreation, while the TRD Pro (which is actually a tad more expensive than the Limited) is best suited to dedicated off-road enthusiasts and competitors.
