Vehicle Profile: 2021 Toyota 4Runner
For more than 35 years, the Toyota 4Runner has gone beyond the limits of paved roads to facilitate unforgettable adventures of outdoor enthusiasts and road warriors. The 2021 model continues that indomitable legacy with an intense powertrain, rugged exterior, and advanced tech to fortify your safety.
With nine capable, adventure-ready trim levels, the Toyota 4Runner offers you plenty of options for your journeys, on and off-road. Choose among the SR5, Trail Special Edition (new for 2021), SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Venture Special Edition, Limited, Nightshade Special Edition, and TRD Pro.
To conquer challenging terrains while providing a comfortable ride for you and your passengers, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner features a body-on-frame construction and an independent double-wishbone suspension in the front balanced by a four-link and coil-spring apparatus in the back. Control is the middle name of the 4Runner thanks to its available electronically controlled locking rear differential and available Crawl Control. Steep inclines and extreme surfaces are no match for the SUV’s available Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, which disconnects the sway bars when your wheels need more room to get the job done. When you are pushing your 4Runner to its limits on the most challenging of terrains, you can be confident that the 4Runner can do so without error courtesy of reinforced skid plates, 9.6 inches of ground clearance, a departure angle of 26 degrees, and a 33-degree approach angle. The available Multi-Terrain Select allows you to toggle among four terrain modes for the optimal performance of the 2021 4Runner.
Just because the sun has set does not mean your adventure needs to end. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is definitely equipped to play in the dark with features including new standard LED headlights and LED fog lights. And with a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, the 2021 4Runner lets you bring your adventure gear on the road. If you are not towing any outdoor toys, you still have plenty of room for gear: 88.8 cubic feet of space when you fold down the second row of seats, which feature a 40/20/40-split for versatility. Utilize the standard power rear window to grab your gear easily and quickly.
