2016 Toyota 4 Runner

Fresh off a restyle for 2014 that bolstered its rugged good looks, the 2016 Toyota 4Runner can tackle the great outdoors and still handle everyday driving with equal dexterity is indeed short.

Now in its fifth design generation, the 4Runner has been a stalwart for SUV drivers seeking rugged, go-anywhere capability. While 4Runner has continued development in balancing off-road capability, on-road handling and ride quality, it has also steadily evolved in the area of comfort and convenience.

The 4Runner sticks to a proven formula: rugged body-on-frame construction with 4-link rear axle, coil-spring suspension and a choice of 2WD, part-time 4WD with a 2-speed transfer case or full-time multi-mode 4WD with a 2-speed transfer case and locking center differential. A 4.0-liter, 270-horsepower V6 teamed to a 5-speed ECT-i automatic transmission powers all versions.

The 2015 4Runner is available as a well equipped SR5; SR5 Premium with additional amenities; Trail; Trail Premium; Limited and TRD Pro Series for ultimate off-road capability. Available third-row seats on SR5 and Limited allow for up to seven-passenger capacity. The Trail and Limited offer high-tech suspension upgrades.
