The Toyota 4Runner continues to be unlike most midsize sports utility vehicles. It is truck-based, arguably the most rugged vehicle in the segment and available with a wide range of off-road options. Toyota has refined the current generation with standard infotainment and driver assistance technologies that most competitors do not include. The 4Runner also gives you the option of a third row that trades cargo space for seating for up to seven. You can also expect serious payload and towing capabilities, and with the proper equipment, you can tow as much as 5,000 pounds. The core trims are the SR5, TRD Off-Road, Limited and TRD Pro, and the SR5 and TRD Off-Road are both available in Premium editions. Toyota has also added a number of special editions this model year: Trail, Venture and Nightshade. You can test-drive any of these models at our location serving Youngstown Pittsburgh New Castle area residents, or contact us to learn about the latest Taylor Auto Group online specials.
The 2021 Toyota 4Runner has a 109.8-inch wheelbase and measures 190.7 inches long, 75.8 inches wide and 71.5 inches tall. The minimum ground clearance is 9.0 inches. The SR5 may be a base model, but it certainly is not equipped like one. Exterior equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels and LED headlamps, taillamps and foglamps. The LED aspect is new for this model year. Wheels up to 20 inches are available, and there are a variety of wheel designs and finishes that you can select from. Front and rear mudguards are standard. Running boards are available as are automatic running boards with certain trims. Other options include LED high beams, a hood scoop and heated side mirrors.
In its standard configuration, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner near Youngstown has two rows and provides seating for up to five. However, Toyota offers an optional third row that you can use as needed and fold flat when not. It does eat up some of your core cargo area, but is helpful for those times when you need the extra seating. Note that the small third-row seating is more intended for young passengers and children’s car seats that adult passengers. Standard equipment includes cloth seating, air conditioning with second-row ventilation, power windows and a center console. Options include a dual-zone automatic climate control system, heated seating, a sliding cargo deck, push-button start and more. The Trail Special Edition features cargo management accessories not found on the other trims.
The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is available with rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The base model comes with RWD standard but offers 4×4 as an option. Most other trims come standard with that part-time 4×4 system, including an adjustable two-speed transfer case. The exceptions are the Limited and any special editions based on it. They come with a full-time all-wheel drive system that features a Torsen center differential that can adjust how much torque the front and rear wheels need depending on the traction. Regardless of the drive configuration, all 4Runner models have a 4.0-liter V6 engine paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. This V6 makes 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. Trailering equipment is available and lets you tow up to 5,000 pounds.
