Toyota 4Runner Review: Towing Capacity and Capabilities

  • 4.0-liter V6 engine
  • 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque
  • 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity

Your next SUV needs to provide enough power to help you tackle thrilling rides off the beaten path, as well as smooth and sleek drives to and from work. Under the hood, the 4Runner is armed with a 4.0-liter V6 engine to create the best of both worlds.

This motor generates 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque to create a commanding performance both on and off the paved road. When properly equipped, this 3-row SUV can haul up to 5,000 pounds, so you can easily bring your small hard-sided RV or recreational boat along for the ride.

Toyota 4Runner Review: Off-Roading

  • Multi-terrain Select
  • Available Crawl Control
  • 9.6-inch ground clearance

The 4Runner is built to take on whatever you throw its way, including off-road excursions. It can do that through the available 4-wheel drive (4WD) system that's paired with Multi-terrain Select. Choose from four drive modes that are specifically designed to reduce wheelspin on a wide range of terrains, so you can explore with confidence.

Taking a maximum stance 9.6 inches off the ground, you'll be able to easily navigate over bumps in the road when hitting off-road trails. When taking on particularly challenging conditions, available Crawl Control will come to your aid. This intelligent system automatically modulates the throttle and brakes so that you can devote your full attention to steering over rocks or through mud.

Toyota 4Runner Review: Cargo Space

  • Seating for 7 
  • Power rear window
  • 88.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space

The interior of the 4Runner is configurable to meet all your adventure needs. When the third row is upright, you'll have seating for seven, along with nine cubic feet of space to store your cooler or hiking boots. Easily grab your daypack out of the rear and hit the trails with your friends, thanks to a power rear window. It lowers with the simple push a button, providing you with quick access to your cargo area.

When more space is needed, fold the second or third rows down to meet your needs. Fold the third row down to gain 46.3 cubic feet to stow away camping gear while still having enough room for your hiking buddies. With both the back seats down flat, though, you'll be treated to 88.8 cubic feet of space if you're making a solo journey and need to maximize your cargo room.

Toyota 4Runner Review: Safety

Adventures are more enjoyable when you know you're fully protected at every turn. That's why the 4Runner comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, which includes the following advanced technologies…

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: Applies the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: Maintains a set following speed and distance to automatically keep you up with the flow of traffic.
  • Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System: Detects unintentional sway and warns you to help you stay on track.
  • Automatic High Beams: Intelligently toggles between high and low beams to provide you with an illuminated view of the road ahead.

Thanks to these baseline amenities, you'll be alerted to potential obstacles to help you stay out of harm's way. This creates a more enjoyable and assured ride, no matter how far from home you stray.
