Few SUVs offer as rugged and authentic an appearance as the 2021 Toyota 4Runner. From its muscular, square frame to its generous ground clearance as well as approach and departure angles, to the modern amenities such as a power moonroof, LED headlamps, and LED fog lamps, the 4Runner certainly looks the part. Inside, heated front seats come standard while several trims offer supple and luxurious SofTex seating—with the Limited and Nightshade trims bringing real leather into the mix. 2nd-row seats can go either way, with the option to either fold down for more cargo space or recline up to 16 degrees for serious comfort on long drives. A variety of trims means a variety of appearance options, like the 4Runner Trail or Venture Package, but it’s the 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro with its 17” matte black aluminum wheels, TRD badging, TRD-stamped aluminum front skid plate, and performance upgrades that adds the sportiest flair to the 2021 4Runner lineup.

Guided by a 4.0-litre V6 engine, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner offers no shortage of power or capability—starting with its 270 horsepower. A 2,268 kg towing capacity and 528 kg payload ensure that the 4Runner is adept at hauling gear and toys alike, however it may be the combined fuel efficiency rating of just 13.8 L/100 km that’s most impressive. Thanks to a part-time 4-wheel drive system the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is as at home on smooth highways as it is rugged off-road paths, while the locking rear differential, Kinetic Suspension System with coil springs, skid-plates, and multi-terrain ABS ensures that it can handle the latter with ease. This is especially true in the 4Runner TRD Pro model, with 4 Wheel Crawl Control, Multi-Terrain Select, TRD-tuned front coil and rear leaf springs, TRD FOX shocks, and more. No matter where you find yourself, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner will get you there and home with the utmost confidence.
