Function and style come together in 4Runner's projector-beam headlights. These headlights provide a stronger and higher-focused beam than conventional headlights, and the smoked trim adds a stroke of boldness to their style. These also incorporate Daytime Running Lights (DRL) to help make you more visible to approaching vehicles.
Brilliant during the day, and night. These taillights send a clear signal to everyone around you and help increase visibility. This distinctive look will be sure to attract all the right attention.
Every 4Runner grade has a unique wheel style to enhance its personality. The SR5 comes with 17-in. 6-spoke alloy wheels. TRD Off-Road features rugged 17-in. 7-spoke alloy wheels and black-painted accents. Limited has stylish 20-in. split 6-spoke wheels.
Apart from a unique front-end design, 4Runner Limited comes with refined accents like chrome door handles and a chrome-accented front grille that give it a personality of its own.
Introducing the new 4Runner TRD Off-Road and TRD Off-Road Premium-two tough SUVs to help you rule your favorite trails. This SUV stands apart with unique features like 17-in. 7-spoke alloy wheels with black-painted accents and stylish new badging. The inside is just as awesome with its TRD shift knob, TRD Off-Road floor mats and available TRD headrest lettering.
Contemporary ruggedness. 4Runner SR5's front end lets everyone know you mean business, while still paying tribute to the iconic image that has distinguished 4Runner for years.
It may look tough outside, but inside it feels exceptionally refined. That's because we have used premium materials like SofTex® on the SR5 Premium and TRD Off-Road Premium grades, and perforated leather on Limited. It's the perfect blend of ruggedness and comfort.
Take it all in. Available on 4Runner SR5 Premium and TRD Off-Road Premium, and standard on Limited, the power tilt/slide moonroof brings you closer to the great outdoors, without even stepping out of the car.
Heated and ventilated front seats
All 4Runners feature an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support. Step up to SR5 Premium or TRD Off-Road Premium and get a 4-way power-adjustable front passenger seat in addition to heated front seats. Limited adds heated and ventilated front seats, plus driver's seat memory to automatically go back to your ideal position every time you strap in for a ride.
Active front headrests
Designed to help optimize headrest position during certain types of rear-end collisions, driver and front passenger active headrests move slightly up and forward, helping to reduce neck injuries.
Surrounded by quality
4Runner's instrument panel shape is tailored to accommodate high-end technology, such as the 6.1-in. high-resolution touch-screen display, standard on all models. Also standard is Optitron instrumentation, which makes the gauges easy to see, day or night.
120V AC power outlet
A 120V AC power outlet is conveniently located in the cargo area so you can keep the things you need the most charged, like your phone or the air compressor.
Smart Key System with Push Button Start
When you approach your 4Runner Limited with the Smart Key in your pocket, the interior and puddle lights illuminate automatically, the doors and rear liftgate open with the touch of a handle, and the engine starts with a push of a button. Getting the trip started is that easy.
Power Rear Glass
4Runner is the only SUV in its class that has this. The power rear glass lowers with a push of a button, making it easier to grab your gear from the cargo area.
Fold-flat second-row seat
Every adventure has its own demands. With 4Runner's 40/20/40 fold-flat second-row seats you can make room for everything you need by folding one or both seats down to accommodate up to 88 cubic feet of cargo. When not folded down, the seatbacks recline for added passenger comfort.
If you're all about the entourage, you'll be able to accommodate up to seven passengers with the available third-row seating on the SR5 and Limited grades. The seats also have a 50/50 split capability to make room for cargo.
Sliding rear cargo deck
Get quick access to your gear, or the cooler. The available sliding rear cargo deck can support up to 440 lbs. and helps make for an easy reach to your gear, or a quick setup before heading to the great outdoors.
15-speaker JBL system
Lending the soundtrack to your many adventures is 4Runner Limited's JBL audio system. To ensure you don't miss a note of your music's soaring highs or thundering lows, the system boasts an amazing 15 speakers, including a subwoofer.
Integrated Navigation gives you turn-by-turn directions, HD Radio™ Technology Predictive Traffic and Doppler Weather overlay-all straight from the 6.1-in. high-resolution touch-screen display.
Entune® App Suite
Entune® brings mobile apps and data right into the heart of your 4Runner. Need to find gear for your upcoming adventure? Use Destination Search. Need to make a dinner reservation? Use OpenTable®. Want to spice up your playlist? Use Pandora® And that's just the start: With Facebook Places, Yelp®, iHeartRadio, Slacker Radio and more apps, your smartphone won't be the only smart tech in the car anymore.
Bluetooth® wireless technology gives you hands-free phone capability, phone book access, advanced voice recognition so you have access to your phone without even glancing at it.
Tech that looks out for you
The standard integrated backup camera display not only helps with backing in to a tight spot, but is also the perfect companion for hitching your trailer. Now you can keep an eye on the important things, like your boat. 4Runner Limited's standard sonar sensors located in the front and rear bumpers help make parallel parking easier by detecting obstacles and warning the driver with a series of tones.
A heritage of toughness
It's no secret that at the core of a superior off-road vehicle lies a body-on-frame construction. 4Runner is one of the last SUVs to still be built this way, keeping true to a heritage that has proven that body-on-frame is the answer to extreme ruggedness. Even after thousands of miles of treacherous, weather-beaten, harsh trails, 90% of 4Runners sold in the last ten years are still on the road.
Standard Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) helps to keep the vehicle from rolling backward when switching from brake to accelerator on a steep incline. The available Downhill Assist Control (DAC) selectively applies the brake to help keep a controlled speed on steep or slippery descents.
Ventilated Disc Brakes
The ventilated disc brake system cools things down to keep the brakes working the way they should, even when taking the long downhill drive back from that summit you've just explored.
270-hp V6 engine
4Runner's standard 4.0-liter V6 engine pumps out 270 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of torque. You won't fall short of power, be it challenging grades or passing an 18-wheeler. With its ability to tow up to 5000 lbs. venturing into some of nature's toughest ranges doesn't mean you have to leave everything behind. 4Runner adheres to SAE J2807, the standard for tow ratings set by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
4Runner comes with underbody armor: Skid plates underneath the vehicle help protect the engine, front suspension and fuel tank (and transfer case on 4WD models) whenever Mother Earth strikes from below..
Standard full-size spare
When the terrain is unforgiving and civilization is half a day's drive away, you can't afford to be saddled with anything less than a full-size spare. That's why one comes standard on all 4Runner models.
4WD with Active Traction Control
4Runner offers two different 4-Wheel Drive systems: SR5 4WD and TRD Off-Road models utilize part-time 4WD with Active Traction Control (A-TRAC), while Limited 4WD is equipped with a full-time 4WD system featuring A-TRAC and Torsen® limited-slip center differential with locking feature.
Lever/dial-type transfer case
All 4WD vehicles require a system to transfer power from the transmission to both front and rear wheels. TRD Off-Road comes with a lever-type transfer case to switch to low range to clear the roughest challenges you encounter, while an electronic transfer case on the SR5/Limited lets you switch with the turn of a dial.
Multi-terrain Select allows you to choose from four modes that will help regulate wheelspin by adjusting the engine throttle setting and traction control to help provide you with maximum traction on various off-road situations.
The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) and Crawl Control (CRAWL) are meant to help keep optimal traction, no matter how uneven the terrain is. KDSS automatically adjusts the suspension system for better wheel articulation, while CRAWL automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings.
Locking rear differential
To help you negotiate uncertain terrain, 4Runner TRD Off-Road has an electronically controlled locking rear differential that evenly distributes engine power to both rear wheels, so they move at the same speed, even if one is off the ground. It also helps to ensure a predictable output to help you maintain a controlled pace over obstacles.
Ready for action
4Runner TRD Pro's cabin is your perfect off-road partner. Its TRD Pro floor mats can take a beating, the available sliding rear cargo deck can support up to 440 lbs. and makes loading a breeze, and with the leather-wrapped TRD shift knob, you've got a firm grip on the situation. Red-stitched seats and rocking entertainment options take this interior to the next level.
Genuine TRD Pro Accessories
Don't have a TRD Pro? No problem-the TRD Pro line of accessories is also available on non-TRD vehicles. Add extra attitude with components that have been engineered with your Toyota in mind; and when installed by your Toyota dealer, maintain the ruggedness and reliability you've come to expect from your SUV.
4Runner TRD Pro is ready to take your adventures to the next level. Its suspension-featuring oversize TRD Bilstein® high-performance shocks with rear remote reservoirs and TRD-tuned springs-helps carry you over unforgiving terrain. And with a ¼-in. aluminum skid plate designed to protect things up front, this rugged body-on-frame SUV fears no trail.
For over 30 years, 4Runner has fueled your need for adventure, tamed wild terrain all across the globe and cemented its status as an off-road icon. 4Runner TRD Pro takes this legendary toughness and amplifies it to a whole new level with beefier tires, a heavy-duty suspension and an aggressive design. Here's to another 30 years of exploring. Let's get dirty!
Stand out in the wild
When you're an off-road legend, there's no need to shout it. But that doesn't mean you can't show off. 4Runner turns heads on the trail with its bold front grille and unique TRD Pro badging. And with 17-in. matte-black TRD alloy wheels wrapped in aggressive all-terrain tires, you can crawl through rocks, dirt and mud in style.
Side-impact door beams
To help provide extra occupant protection if the vehicle is struck from the side, impact beams are located inside all doors, and are designed to absorb energy and help reduce the chance of intrusion into the cabin.
Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That's why we include a no cost maintenance plan with the purchase or lease of every new 4Runner for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. 24-hour roadside assistance is also included for 2 years and unlimited miles.
With available Safety Connect® emergency assistance is always within your reach. Via Toyota's 24/7 call center, Safety Connect® offers subscribers helpful features such as Emergency Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Locator, Roadside Assistance and Automatic Collision Notification.
8 standard airbags
4Runner is prepared to help protect you and your passengers with our driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger TAP (Thorax, Abdomen, Pelvis) front seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags and all-row Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA).
Tire Pressure Monitor System
Proper tire pressure is important not only for good handling and fuel economy, but also for your safety. 4Runner's standard Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) evaluates the pressure of the tires and issues a warning if the pressure becomes critically low.
Star Safety System™
4Runner comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six safety features designed to keep you out of harm's way. It includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Brake Assist (BA), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
