The Toyota 4Runner is one of the last SUVs on the road that's aimed squarely at consumers that enjoy going off-roading. For those that really want to trek off the beaten path, Toyota sells a TRD Pro variant of the SUV that comes with all sorts of extra goodies. Some major updates are in store for the 2019 4Runner TRD Pro, including a hefty price increase.

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro starts at $44,120, while order guides reveal the 2019 model will be priced at $47,460 (both prices include the $1,045 destination fee). That's a large difference of $3,340. The TRD Pro trim isn't the only 4Runner that'll increase in price, as the other trims are set to increase by $100, as well.

Earlier this year at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, Toyota unveiled its plans to make its TRD Pro models even more capable. For the 4Runner TRD Pro that means new 2.5-inch Fox bypass shocks and TRD-tuned front springs that give the SUV a 1-inch lift at the front. The front shocks have a total of seven bypass zones: four compression and three rebound. At the back, the shocks have 11 bypass zones: seven compression and four rebound. The rear end also has 2-inch piggyback shock reservoirs that have additional oil to ensure that maximum damping performance is always available.

In addition to the new suspension components, the updated 4Runner TRD Pro also gets new 17-inch matte-black TRD alloy wheels with an offset change that provides the SUV with a track that's wider by an inch. A new roof rack and front skid plate are the last of the exterior changes for the 2019 model year.

On the inside, the 4Runner TRD Pro gets a standard Entune premium JBL audio system with navigation and Toyota's App Suite as standard. As usual, the SUV will come with TRD-branded touches, including a shift knob, floor mats, and red-stitched Softex seats.

Even with the changes, the 4Runner TRD Pro isn't a match for the Jeep Wrangler. Jeep came out with an all-new SUV for the 2018 model year that improves on the icon's off-roading abilities. And now that the interior of the Jeep is nicer than ever, the Wrangler sits in its own part of the market.

Another large change for the 4Runner lineup is the addition of the Nightshade Edition trim that will slot in above the Limited as the range-topping option. The model builds upon the Limited trim and will be priced at $46,010 for 4x2 models and $48,045 for SUVs equipped with 4x4. The Nightshade Edition comes with numerous black components, including 20-inch wheels, front and rear bumper spoilers, window moldings, rocker panels, door handles, exhaust tip, and roof rails. The instrument cluster, steering wheel, shifter, door handles, and console panels are also blacked out on the inside.
