There is not much else on the road, quite like the 2020 Toyota 4Runner. This SUV can seat seven people and serve as a daily family haulier.
What’s new for 2020:
- Advanced driver safety aids (Toyota’s Safety Sense P) are standard on all models
- The new infotainment system now includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- USB ports for rear passengers
Pros and Cons:
- Excellent off-road capabilities
- Variety of configurations to suit buyers and price points
- The versatile cargo area, especially with optional slide-out floor
- Unrefined transmission
- Dull, outdated interior
- Bumpy ride
- Poor fuel economy
Engine and Performance:
The 4Runner’s 4.0-litre V-6 engine and five-speed automatic transmission can team with either rear-, four-, or all-wheel drive. The mid-level 4Runner TRD Off-Road car model accelerated to 60 mph in 7.5 seconds.
It fits the mould of the modern mid-size SUV in size (two rows of seats), horsepower (270), and cargo volume (above average for its class), but from behind the wheel, it’s nothing like the mainstream family hauliers.
The 4Runner’s powertrain combinations show off their age at the pump. Other competitors have similar ratings but do much better on the national highway, and the 4Runner failed to meet its meagre 20-mpg EPA ratings during highway test, notching instead an even lower 19 mpg.
Interior and Cargo space:
Toyota’s touch screen infotainment system is standard in the 4Runner. For 2020, Toyota improved the 4Runner’s infotainment system by adding standard Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, and Android Auto, which weren’t previously available. A smattering of power points throughout the cabin will keep everyone plugged in, but we’d happily trade some of the 12-volt outlets for more USB ports.
You should buy a 4Runner if you like the idea of a rugged, body-on-frame SUV, and you prioritize off-road capability and ample cargo space. However, the 4Runner’s unrefined performance makes it tough to recommend to most shoppers. Though this Toyota has a bunch of newly standard safety equipment and upgraded infotainment features, it also has one of the highest base prices in the class.
The 2020 4Runner Car Model is in showrooms now. Though technically a carry-over, the 2020 4Runner gets a revamped TRD Pro car model and Android Autocar. This rugged SUV car continues with the same unattractive offers this month. The 2020 Toyota 4Runner gets a new lease offer and an updated cash-back deal this month. The 2020 Toyota 4Runner’s car model offers mostly carry over the month, but it loses the ninety-day payment deferral plan.
Toyota’s offers vary by region and will be expire on AUGUST 3, 2020. Price ranges between $36,020 – $49,765.
