Toyota 4Runner: Rugged & Ready For Anything


TORONTO: “Whether it’s a day on the trail or a night on the town, the Toyota 4Runner is ready to take you there – thanks to its winning blend of authentic, rugged 4×4 capability and a refined interior with comfort features and amenities designed to delight.

New for 2019, Toyota introduces a Nightshade edition, offering the premium comfort and amenities of the top-level Limited grade 4Runner, enhanced with unique black detailing. Also for 2019, the very rugged Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro gains some features to make off-roading even more fun.

“Toyota has a remarkable heritage of building trucks that have been proven in some of the harshest weather and terrain on the planet, and that’s the expertise that we’ve built into every 4Runner,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “While many other manufacturers have been abandoning their body-on-frame SUV customers, we’re proud of Toyota’s truck heritage – and with models like the 4Runner we’re ready to welcome more Canadian truck fans to the Toyota family.”

As an authentic off-road Sport Utility Vehicle, the 4Runner combines heavy-duty body-on-frame construction with a powerful exterior design – featuring a bold grille, pronounced fender flares, power moon roof, alloy wheels, roof rails and running boards.

Inside, 4Runner’s power adjustable and heated front seats are accommodating and supportive. Select models have space for seven adults, with the addition of split folding third row seats. Drivers will appreciate the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, multi-information display with steering wheel-mounted controls, trip computer, auto-dimming rear view mirror, Eco Drive Monitor and fuel economy meter, cruise control and integrated garage door opener.

Under the hood, the 4Runner packs a 4.0L V6 that generates 270 peak horsepower and up to 278 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to a five-speed automatic super electronically controlled transmission with overdrive, lockup torque converter and transmission cooler for responsive shifts, confident acceleration, and a fuel efficiency rating of 13.2L”/”100KM (city/highway combined). Power is delivered to the road or trail via a one-touch, on-demand 4WD system with active traction control, hill start assist control and downhill assist control. The front independent double-wishbone suspension and four-link rear suspension are both enhanced with stabilizer bars – and a 9.6” ground clearance.

The Toyota 4Runner is offered with a choice of trim levels, as follows:
