2023 Toyota 4Runner

There aren’t many true SUVs remaining in today’s market, but the Toyota 4Runner is still made with body-on-frame construction and traditional four-wheel drive for unmitigated ruggedness off the pavement. With more than four decades of trailblazing glory behind it, the 4Runner isn’t just popular – it’s a legend. That’s why Toyota decided to commemorate it with a 40th Anniversary Special Edition, marked by retro tri-colored outer graphics and bronze touches inside and out. In other news for the new model year, all 4Runners now get a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.

Trims and Mechanical Information

Joining the 2023 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition are seven other trims: SR5, TRD Sport, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro. At the heart of every one of them is a 4.0-liter V6 making 270 hp and 278 lb.-ft. of torque; a five-speed automatic transmission completes the powertrain. Rear-wheel drive comes by default in the SR5, TRD Sport, SR5 Premium, and Limited, but four-wheel drive is available for those trims (it comes standard on the 40th Anniversary Special Edition, TRD Off-Road, TRD Premium Off-Road, and Premium). The 4Runner has a standard tow hitch receiver that allows it to tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Equipment by Trim

The 2023 4Runner fits five passengers in its standard configuration, but the SR5, SR5 Premium, and Limited are eligible for a third-row bench seat for those who want to accommodate seven occupants instead. Highlights of the base SR5’s equipment list are a power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, proximity entry (Smart Key) LED exterior lights (headlights, daytime running lights, fog lights, and taillights), a front skid plate for the engine and front suspension, and rooftop rails. It also has rear privacy glass, push-button start, cloth seats, three power outlets (two 12V and one 120V), three USB ports, and a 40/20/40-split fold-flat second-row bench seat; heated exterior mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer make winter weather more manageable. The TRD Sport gets the following upgrades: a hood scoop, a sport-tuned suspension, SofTex seats, and special TRD badges and floor mats.

Rather than getting those trail-oriented attributes, the SR5 Premium is equipped similarly to the SR5 but heated front seats, upgraded side mirrors with integrated turn signals, a power front passenger’s seat, SofTex upholstery, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink. The TRD Off-Road and TRD Off-Road Premium follow the SR5 and SR5 Premium respectively for standard features, but they’re bolstered with Multi-Terrain Select with crawl control, active traction control, and a locking rear differential. The nostalgic 40th Anniversary Special Edition also starts out equipped like the SR5, but with and bronze interior stitching, bronze wheels, a trim-specific TOYOTA grille, and exterior stripes in red, orange, and yellow.

The Limited is the most plush, getting the same core equipment as the SR5 Premium, plus perforated-leather seats (heated and ventilated in the first row), a moonroof, exterior chrome, automatic on/off headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, and driver’s-seat position memory. The TRD Pro matches the TRD Off-Road Premium for features but also gets the moonroof and dual-zone auto climate control, plus some specialized TRD attributes: high-performance shocks with rear remote reservoirs, TRD-tuned front springs, a TRD Pro-stamped front skid plate, all-terrain tires, a transfer case skid plate, a roof rack, all-weather floor mats, and a Multi-Terrain Monitor that shows the front, side, and rear views.

Active Safety Features

Toyota Safety Sense is standard issue to increase every 4Runner’s safety factor. The technologies in this suite are dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams, a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, and lane departure alert. As mentioned, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert is also now standard, as is rear occupant alert. The Limited and TRD Pro both receive a panoramic view monitor; the Limited alone has parking sensors (front and rear).

Infotainment and Connectivity

An 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system is found in the SR5, TRD Sport, and TRD Off-Road to keep occupants entertained and in contact with the outside world. Its components consist of smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth for hands-free phone use and audio streaming, Amazon Alexa, SiriusXM satellite radio, and an audio system with eight speakers. The upgraded system in the SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road Premium, and 40th Anniversary Special Edition has navigation and can be controlled via voice recognition; the Limited and TRD Pro get those upgrades along with a prime JBL audio system with 15 speakers.
