Overview

Built on a truck frame and backed by a reputation for reliability, the Toyota 4Runner is one of the toughest SUVs on the market. Its off-road abilities and cargo space make it a great adventure vehicle. SUVs like the 4Runner lag in popularity compared to car-based crossovers due to their inferior on-road handling and fuel economy. Yet no crossover can match the all-terrain talents or durability of the Toyota 4Runner.

Pros

Excellent all-terrain capabilities and tech; Standard suite of driver safety aids; Large cargo capacity behind the seats

Cons

Crossover SUVs offer better fuel economy; Ponderous truck-based handling; Underwhelming infotainment screen

  • What is MSRP?

    MSRP stands for Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, sometimes also known as the sticker price. Because this price is only a suggestion, a dealer can choose to sell a vehicle above—or, more often, below—MSRP.

  • What is Market Average?

    Based on actual recent transactions other buyers have made, the Market Average shows you the average price others paid for vehicles similar to the one you want, while taking into account that most of these vehicles have different option combinations from the ones you specified.

  • Statewide, Regional, and National Data

    If there are insufficient transactions in your area, we calculate your Market Average by gathering statewide, regional, or national data. Because this data can come from a large geographical area it may not be as representative of your local market.

2021 Toyota 4Runner Model Description

What's New New Trail Edition adds adventure accessories; Features a cargo basket and custom cooler; Also comes with dark exterior accents, wheels; All 4Runners get standard LED headlights; TRD Pro gets new paint color and wheels

The Toyota 4Runner is a rare vehicle. It has phenomenal off-road abilities, it’s durable, and it has a heralded reputation for dependability. It also has some flaws, like lumbering on-road handling and below-average fuel efficiency. Beneath its utilitarian styling, there is a bevy of available technology for managing difficult driving conditions. There are also modern conveniences, like Apple CarPlay and adaptive cruise control. Few other SUVs can transport people and their stuff to and from far off locales, whether there are roads or not.

Toyota currently builds the 4Runner in nine trim levels: SR5, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro. There are also three special-editions -- the Trail, Venture, and Nightshade models. The 4Runner comes in two- or four-wheel-drive. The entry-level SR5 trim has a starting price of around $36,500. It comes with popular features like automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, automatic high beams, LED headlights, heated power side mirrors, cloth upholstery, a power driver’s seat, keyless entry, air conditioning, an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The Trail Special Edition costs around $38,500, and it adds features like black exterior badging, dark gray wheels, all-weather floor mats, a Yakima cargo basket, and a 40-quart removable cooler. The SR5 Premium has an MSRP of about $40,000. Amenities include leatherette seats, a power passenger seat, heated front seats, keyless ignition, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. For about $40,500, shoppers can get the TRD Off-Road trim. It comes with all of the features of the SR5, plus items like all-weather tires, Multi-Terrain Select, and a crawl mode. The TRD Off-Road Premium costs about $43,500, and it combines all of the features of the SR5 Premium and Off-Road models. Starting around $45,000, the Venture has the same long list of features as the Off-Road Premium and the stealthy styling and exclusive add-ons that come with the Trail model. The Limited trim has a roughly-$45,500 MSRP, and for that, shoppers get conveniences like dual-zone climate control, leather-trimmed upholstery, chrome exterior accents, and a power sliding moonroof. The Nightshade retails for approximately $47,000, and it is essentially a 4Runner Limited with black exterior styling elements, black alloy wheels, and all-weather tires. The top-of-the-line 4Runner is the TRD Pro. It costs about $50,500 and has a TRD roof rack, front skid plate, FOX shocks, TRD-tuned front springs, matte-black wheels, Nitto Terra Grappler all-terrain tires, a unique grille, and TRD interior accents.

No matter which 4Runner one chooses, it will come with Toyota’s trusted and longstanding 4.0-liter V6 engine. It produces 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. The engine delivers plenty of power for everything from highway cruising to rock-crawling. It is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. The 4Runner takes regular fuel and has a 23-gallon gas tank. The EPA estimates the two-wheel-drive 4Runner should return 16/19/17 mpg city/highway/combined, which lags behind many midsize crossover SUVs.

With its tall dashboard, chunky controls, and modular interior feel, the 4Runner’s truck-like layout is the natural continuation of the durability and sense of solidity found in the exterior and powertrain. Outward visibility is superb -- the Toyota has a tall ride height, upright seats, and large, thinly-framed windows. It helps when navigating bad weather or unpredictable trails. Toyota has kept interior technology current, with things like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot now standard. But the 8-inch infotainment screen feels a tad small and outdated. Interior space is adequate, but the rear-seat area is snug compared to many midsize crossovers. At just 32.9 inches, the legroom will be tight for taller adults. While crossovers also seek to include a third-row seat, the 4Runner comes standard without one, which frees up a ton of cargo space. Cargo capacity is 47.2 cubic feet; folding down the seat expands that space to a generous 89.7 cubes.

People who viewed the 2021 Toyota 4Runner also considered

The Starting Market Average is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the least expensive configuration of this vehicle. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations. The data underlying the Starting Market Average calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Starting Market Average is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
