2016 Toyota 4Runner OVERVIEW

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:


Comes smartly equipped with a rearview camera, heated mirrors, a power liftgate window, a windshield wiper de-icer, a power driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio, and an eight-speaker sound system with integrated smartphone apps and satellite radio. Four-wheel drive is optional, as is a third row.

SR5 Premium

Adds leather-like vinyl upholstery (in place of the SR5's cloth), heated front seats with passenger power, a sunroof, and a navigation system with additional apps and voice-to-text capability.


Comes standard with a four-wheel drive system that's specially tuned for off-roading, plus all-terrain tires, mudguards, and body-color exterior trim. The optional Kinetic Suspension System (KDSS) automatically disconnects the stabilizer bars when needed to overcome off-road obstacles like deep ruts and boulders. All other equipment is similar to the SR5 with one exception: the third now is not available.

Trail Premium

Combines the Trail's off-road features with the extra comforts of the SR5 Premium.


Ups the luxury quotient with leather upholstery, a ventilated driver seat, keyless ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 15-speaker JBL audio system with HD radio, and adaptive shock absorbers for a smoother ride. The Limited rolls on 20-inch wheels, and four-wheel drive is optional. The available power-operated running boards are exclusive to this trim level. As with the SR5, you can add a third row for seven-passenger capacity.

TRD Pro Series

Designed for serious off-roading, the TRD (Toyota Racing Development) comes with a beefier suspension system, high-performance shocks, Nitto Terra Grappler tires, and a thicker front skid plate. Four-wheel drive is of course standard, as are special styling touches throughout. Other equipment is similar to the Premium lines.

CarsDirect Tip

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.
