The New Toyota 4Runner Is A Perfect All-Around SUV

The Toyota 4Runner has long been a standout vehicle in the mid-size SUV class. It is also one that has remained as rugged as the first 4Runners were intended to be. The Toyota 4Runner has only seen minor changes in its appearance since last year, and it still offers the same V6 engine that originally powered the vehicle. Although many families love the 4Runner, it is still a tough and dependable off-road vehicle. The 4Runner offers a spacious cabin, and its cargo area is rather large.

In the upcoming auto year, the Toyota 4Runner will offer a TRD sport model, which will add to its off-road capability.

Designed With You in Mind

The 4Runner's tall exterior allows for lots of headroom in the SUV's cabin. Surprisingly, the vehicle offers lots of legroom too. You can easily seat five in the two-row version of the 4Runner, but an optional third row can add seating for at least two more.

Amherst drivers will also find the 4Runner offers lots of storage space throughout the cabin. Some experts have put up to fourteen carry-on sized bags in the two-row 4Runner with seats folded flat. Keep in mind that the 4Runner is tall-some models will offer an available pull-out cargo deck that can assist in loading cargo and can also act as a tailgate. However, this tailgate does tend to cut down cargo room in two-row 4Runners.

Extreme Performance

All Toyota 4Runner models - no matter the trim level you choose - is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 gasoline engine that offers up to 270 horsepower. You may choose from rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive powertrain systems. Buffalo area drivers will also be able to choose whether the four-wheel drive works part-time or full-time. The experts at Toyota have worked to improve the suspension of the 4Runner, resulting in a smoother ride.

You'll also find that the well-equipped Toyota 4Runner will out-tow other SUVs in its class. The standard V6 engine offers up to 278 pound-feet of torque for a surprising amount of towing and performance power. The transmission is a five-speed automatic that allows for manual shifting. Grand Island shoppers will find that the 4Runner sits on Bridgestone Dueler 265/70R-17 tires, which are standard on all 4Runner models.

Technology For Everyone

Williamsville area shoppers will enjoy an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen, which will allow you to access radio functions as well as available navigation. You can also utilize software that will provide you access to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. These features allow you to make calls and send texts to your contacts using voice-operated commands, so you never have to take your eyes off the road. You'll simply ask Siri or Alexa for help. You can even pull up directions on your smart phone via these apps.

The Toyota 4Runner will offer a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. Some upgrades to the infotainment system include an available JBL audio system featuring fifteen speakers and a built-in navigation system.

Safety

When it comes to safety, you'll enjoy many standard features in the 4Runner. These include automatic high-beam headlamps and blind spot monitoring using cameras set up across the exterior of the 4Runner. You will also see:

  • Forward collision warning with automated emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Adaptive cruise control

Trim Levels

The Toyota 4Runner is available to Orchard Park area shoppers in seven trim levels or packages. These include the SRS, the Venture, and the Limited. You can also opt for a TRD Sport package or a TRD Off-Road package. The TRD Pro offers off-roading with luxury interior. The Nightshade is a special edition of the 4Runner.
