The 4Runner didn't change much going into 2012, but a few options were revised. The SR5's Convenience package gains power-adjustable front seats, and the Limited's standard stereo has been upgraded to include navigation and HD radio. The Limited also gets a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Great combination of truck-like performance and car-like agility; smooth and comfortable ride; incredible off-road handling and capability; durability and strength
The Toyota 4Runner debuted in the U.S. more than 25 years ago. Now in its fifth generation, this midsized SUV uses the same platform as the FJ Cruiser and maintains its truck-like body-on-frame construction. A third row of seats is available and both the second and third rows fold completely flat without having to remove the headrests, providing a cavernous 90 cubic feet of cargo space. The optional sliding rear cargo deck can support up to 440 pounds.
