Toyota's truck-based mid-size sport-utility vehicle is largely unchanged for 2008, except for the addition of side and curtain airbags on all models.

The 4Runner, a perennially popular off-roader, is offered in both two and four-wheel-drive layouts, and in SR5, Sport, or Limited trim levels. The standard 4Runner engine is a 236-horsepower 4.0-liter V-6 with variable valve timing (VVTi). A 4.7-liter V-8, also equipped with VVTi and 260 horsepower, is optional. Both engines are mated to a five-speed automatic gearbox.

Standard safety equipment on the 4Runner includes anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Hill Descent Control, Vehicle Skid Control, and traction control. An automatic Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) is standard on 2WD models for improved traction in slippery conditions.

Toyota also offers off-road/activity equipment for the 4Runner, including underbody skid plates, a roof rack, a locking Torsen center differential, and M/S-rated tires.

The base price for the new 4Runner ranges from $28,015 for the 2WD SR5 V-6 to $38,735 for the 4WD Limited V-8.
