Overview Information

Toyota has established the 4Runner as a capable midsize SUV, filling a unique niche in the market. In Toyota's lineup, it offers buyers a more ruggedized SUV than the Highlander while offering a size advantage over the FJ Cruiser and a price advantage over the Land Cruiser. The latest model adds a more luxurious interior, but retains its off-road capabilities. The standard 4.0L V-6 can be substituted for a more fuel-efficient four-cylinder on the SR5 4x2 model. 4Runners are available in 2WD or part-time 4WD models in the SR5 and Trail grades. A Torsen(R) center differential is standard on the 4WD 4Runner Limited. An available third row seat allows the 4Runner to carry seven.

What Changed:

The fifth generation 4Runner grows by roughly a half inch in length and width. The exterior styling retains most of lines of the prior model adding exaggerated wheel wells and a shorter looking greenhouse for a more rugged appearance. The 4Runner comes in three trim levels: SR5, Trail and Limited. A 4.0L V6 powers most models, but the entry-level SR5 4x2 model offers a more fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine. The V8 is not offered for 2010.
