Review: 2019 Toyota 4Runner


Los Angeles area drivers that enjoy getting away from the city for exciting adventures will be amazed by the serious off-road capability of the body-on-frame Toyota 4Runner. This midsize SUV can accommodate up to seven passengers, has ample ground clearance, and great towing capabilities. Visit Longo Toyota in El Monte for a test drive.


The 2019 Toyota 4Runner offers you many choices with seven different trims to select from including the SR5 base model up to the TRD Pro grade. The 4Runner is equipped with a 4.0-liter V6 DOHC engine paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. All grades, except for the TRD trims, come standard with a rear-wheel drivetrain with automatic limited-slip differential and the option to upgrade to 4WD. The TRD Off-Road, Off-Road Premium, and Pro grades utilize part-time 4WD with Active Traction Control. The Toyota 4Runner generates 270-hp and 278 lb.-ft. of torque and has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.  Available are Crawl Control and a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension system to help keep optimal traction, as well as Multi-Terrain Select which allows you to choose from four modes for maximum traction.


Up to 88.8 cubic feet of cargo space lets you pack what you need for every adventure. The second-row seats have the flexibility to fold one or both seats down flat with a 40/20/40-split capability, and the optional third-row seating has a 50/50-split ability. The new 4Runner is the only SUV in its class that lets you push a button to lower the rear glass making for easy access to the cargo area, and you’ll want to utilize the available sliding rear cargo deck that can support up to 440 pounds. The optional Smart Key System allows the doors and rear liftgate to open with the touch of a handle, while the interior and puddle lights illuminate automatically as you approach your 4Runner.


The new 4Runner comes standard with an advanced eight-airbag system, hill start assist control, a full-size spare tire, and the Star Safety System™ which includes vehicle stability control, traction control, an anti-lock brake system, brake assist, electronic brake-force distribution, and smart stop technology.
