Editor’s note: If you’re looking for information on a newer Toyota 4Runner, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Toyota 4Runner Review.
In today’s world, midsize SUV shopping can seem like an endless task. The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is here to simplify the process. We’ve got five reasons why this versatile SUV is still running the show.
The 4Runner is one of the very few remaining SUVs that has maintained its truck base, which gives it an edge in the off-roading department. Mud guards and skid plates come standard and are definitely useful in the rugged and fun 4Runner. Upgrading to 20-inch off-road tires and Bilstein shocks also enhance performance.
It seems technology in cars these days cause headaches and confusion, but the 4Runner eases the mind. Inside the cabin, the layout is pleasing. The controls and instruments are simple and user-friendly. They’re also durable and sizable which compliment such a bold and tough SUV. See the 2016 Toyota 4Runner models for sale near you
The 4Runner offers a spacious 89.7 cu ft. cargo hold with the rear seats folded. It seats five, but you can opt for a third row which ups capacity to seven passengers. The second-row seats recline and are accommodating to most passenger needs — whether it be tailgating or traveling, it has you covered.
Introduced in 1984 and continuing on into its fifth generation, the 4Runner is built to last. Coming standard are a 270 horsepower V6, 17-in alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, the 4Runner’s trademark rear lift gate powered window and even de-icing windshield wipers. It’s built for just about anything, and the reliable Toyota badge seals the deal.
Inside and out, the 4Runner is equipped with technology for this day and age. All 4Runner’s receive a 6.1-in touchscreen with Bluetooth/USB/iPod integration, hill-start assist and a rearview camera. Additions vary from selectable terrain modes, locking rear differential, and Toyota’s Safety Connect telematics system.
The midsize SUV class is competitive these days, but with generous space, proven reliability and the ability to manage almost any street or off-road situation, it’s time to put the brawny 2016 Toyota 4Runner on your list. Find a Toyota 4Runner for sale
