The 2022 Toyota 4Runner is a rugged SUV with a classic — almost retro — boxy exterior, lots of standard features, and exceptional off-road abilities. Thanks to its wide range of amenities and rugged capability, it’s the ideal ride for drivers seeking a safe, reliable, and well-equipped family hauler that can also handle adventurous weekends.
Every 2023 Toyota 4Runner is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 engine that produces 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. This is a trusty engine that has been proving its dependability for more than two decades. In fact, iSeeCars.com found that the 4Runner was among the top vehicles most likely to reach 200,000 miles. With power sent to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission — or a 4WD system if you opt for it — the 4Runner can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
While it’s a smooth rider on pavement, there’s no doubt the Toyota 4Runner feels more at home off the road, particularly the 4Runner TRD Pro. Thanks to high-performance FOX® shocks, all-terrain tires, a quarter-inch TRD skid plate, and an electronically-controlled locking rear differential, the 4Runner finds a path forward where other vehicles might get stuck in the mud. One of its coolest technologies is Crawl Control, which is a low-speed cruise control feature that inches you forward autonomously so you can focus on steering.
For all its ruggedness, the 2023 4Runner is impressively well-equipped with high-tech features. Every model, regardless of trim level, comes with an 8-inch touch-screen Entune® infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity, making it safer and more convenient to use your favorite apps on the go. Entune also comes with the Amazon Alexa assistant and an optional Wi-Fi hotspot. Whether you’re on the highway or deep in the wilderness, it’s never been easier to stay connected to the world at large.
All new 4Runner models come with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, an advanced suite of driver assistance systems. It includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. New for 2023, the 4Runner also gets standard blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Some of these features are merely convenient, while others can help alert you of a potential collision as well as intervene in some situations to avoid or mitigate impact. And in the case of adaptive cruise control, it makes long-distance driving a lot less fatiguing than it otherwise might be.
If you’ve got gear to haul to your destination, the Toyota 4Runner is a great choice of ride. Behind the rear seats, it offers up to 47.2 cubic feet of space, which can be expanded to nearly 90 cubic feet with those seats folded flat. That’s more than enough room to transport some truly big items, or enough groceries to survive the apocalypse. Even better is the optional pull-out cargo deck. It’s an exceptional piece of equipment that can help you load items up to 440 pounds — and while doing so, it makes the cargo floor perfectly flat and can even be used as a tailgate.
The majority of 4Runner models come with heated front seats and soft-touch leatherette upholstery, giving the SUV a genuinely upscale vibe. For families seeking a premium experience, the 4Runner Limited features authentic leather, ventilated front seats, and a power moonroof. And for 2023, the 4Runner is offered with a beautiful 40th Anniversary Special Edition that includes exclusive design elements, logos, and badges. Combined with the generous interior passenger room across both rows, and the optional third row for larger families, it all makes for a great space to spend time traveling.
