2016 Toyota 4Runner – Recall what SUVs used to be like? The Toyota 4Runner is one of the few remaining utility vehicles left on the market that keep to that old body-on-frame formula—with all the truck stamina, plus just refinement and modern ride -and managing attributes are thrown in.
2016 Toyota 4Runner Review
If you never have things to tow or keep virtually just to the roads and highways, you will be better served by one of Toyota’s crossover models like the Highlander or RAV4. The 4Runner calls out to off-road enthusiasts — as well those who maybe need to reveal they’d rather spend less time crawling along on the commute.
2016 Toyota 4Runner Redesign
The 4Runner stays true to sport utility convention, which dictates a truck front end and wagon body, where it will protect the paint from trees or rocks and some chrome tossed in only.
2016 Toyota 4Runner Interior
The 4Runner cabin is not elaborate but it is detailed well, with practical and straightforward controls that are chunky yet still exact. Not chrome, that is not the 4Runner’s design. The controls for offroad functions are positioned overhead, so the center stack controls are fewer. Duplicate controls on the steering wheel perform audio and Bluetooth.
The high flooring and rather a narrow body of the 4Runner give away its truck roots, but it’s still reasonably comfortable for up to five adults. In front, amazing-looking, supporting seats are best with the accessible perforated leather upholstery. They’re wide and encouraging, and they fit fairly the range of shapes and sizes.
The second-row bench seat adjusts for rake (with four detents), and mature-sized occupants will even feel at home, thanks to seat contouring that goes well beyond the stiff bench pillows in some rivals. As for the two-passenger third-row seat offered on SR5 and Limited versions, it’s difficult to get to — leave it to the little ones.
One thing you won’t locate of in the 4Runner (at least relative to solid-truck expectations) is sound. The soft suspension does a great job of keeping smaller impacts (and impact noises) from the cabin, while it is remarkably free of wind noise considering its boxy shape.
2016 Toyota 4Runner Engine
The V6 makes the same 270 horsepower as it did in 2010 and still seems a bit breathless as it works to move the 4Runner. Viewed as a body-on-frame midsize SUV, the 4Runner has no contest. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes close, but the 4Runner is considerably more lavish. The unibody Jeep Grand Cherokee is likewise capable off-road and more enjoyable on-road.
The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is no longer the entirely roofed cousin of a pickup. In the last few years, the 4Runner has gotten far more convenience- and luxury-oriented— though it is still aimed more toward off-road trails than coddling passengers. And it is worth keeping in mind that if you care to take advantage of everything that is available on the 4Runner, it can become one truck that is really high-priced.
The “walk” in trim levels for the 4Runner has changed only slightly, and with the launch of the offroad-centered TRD Pro version last year, it now includes SR5, Trail, TRD Pro Series, and Limited. Off-road purists who also occasionally need to haul the family will need the pricier Trail model, while the Limited version attractiveness to those who want an amount of conveniences—if not outright luxury—on par with a Land Rover. And the new TRD Pro Series version is targeted at the extreme offroad bunch; it’s the lone way to get all terrain tires on a 4Runner, which are a must when doing anything but light off-roading.
