What Makes the Toyota 4Runner So Popular?

December 9th, 2015 by

With so many trucks and SUV’s on the market today, how do you choose which one is best suited for your lifestyle and driving habits? The choices can be overwhelming, so it takes some time to narrow down your top picks for a new or used SUV or truck. SUV’s come and they go. The Nissan XTerra, for instance, has seen its last iteration—which means this vehicle will not be redesigned/upgraded for future release. But the Toyota 4Runner has been around for a while, and there are many reasons for its popularity. While some may think the 4Runner is a bit pricey, with this vehicle, you get what you pay for. What makes the 2016 Toyota 4Runner so popular really comes down to one word: reliability.

Available in three trims (4 Runner Trail Offroad, 4Runner Base SR5 and the 4Runner Limited Edition), this truck-based mid-sized sport utility vehicle is one of the best-selling SUV’s in the U.S. Let’s see what makes it so popular…
The newest model features a bigger grille and more pronounced bumpers. The interior of the Toyota 4Runner has an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with a lumbar support and a 4-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. The 7-inch display is on a redesigned dashboard, with an 8-speaker audio system and new navigation system to help you arrive at all your destinations safe and sound (and on time!).

Its powerful 4.0-liter V6 VVT engine generates 270 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. of torque. The new 4Runner has a 5-speed automatic transmission with 2-wheel drive and optional 4-wheel drive.
