Toyota 4Runner


The Toyota 4Runner is an SUV manufactured by Toyota and sold throughout the world from 1984 to the present. In Japan it was known as the Toyota Hilux Surf. The original 4Runner was a compact SUV and little more than a Toyota pickup truck with a fiberglass shell over the bed, but the model has since undergone significant independent development into a cross between a mid-size and a full-size SUV. All 4Runners have been built at Toyota's Tahara plant in Tahara, Aichi, Japan or at Hino Motors' Hamura, Japan plant, and in Brazil. Its mid-size crossover SUV counterpart is the Highlander. Toyota will redesign the 4Runner for the 2010 model year.


The fifth generation 4Runner was unveiled at the Texas State Fair on September 24, 2009. It is available in 3 iterations, 2 of which were available previously. The base SR5 model was well as the top-of-the-line Limited model are available as a 2WD or a 4WD. The new Trail Edition model is only available as a 4WD. The SR5 and Trail Edition 4WD's will receive a selectable drive system, while the Limited will have full-time 4WD. All models will come with A-TRAC. A carry-over 4.0 V6 is the only engine available, despite earlier rumors of a new 4.6L V8 being an option.

The Trail Edition trys to appeal to the original roots of the Toyota following by offering Toyota's Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS)which has previously only been available to premium vehicles, as well as a true-locking rear differential with crawl control.
