Toyota U.S.A. today announced 2014 manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRP) for the redesigned 4Runner mid-size sport utility vehicle (SUV). The units will begin arriving at Toyota dealerships this month.
Currently In its fifth-generation, 4Runner continues as one of the few fully capable mid-size SUVs. The redesigned 2014 4Runner receives a rugged new exterior design, and interior refinements.
The 2014 4Runner is available in three grades: a well-equipped, value-driven SR5; top-of-the-line Limited, and a Trail grade for those who want maximum off-road capability. Optional third-row seats on SR5 and Limited allow for up to seven-person capacity.
4Runner owners will have the choice of a rear wheel 4×2, part-time 4×4 or a full-time multi-mode 4×4 with a locking center differential. All models are equipped with a powerful 4.0-liter, 270-horsepower V6 teamed to a five-speed ECT-i automatic transmission and one of the few vehicles that continues offer a transfer case.
The refreshed 4Runner features a redesigned front fascia that conveys a more rugged and aggressive appearance. This includes a muscular front grille, and edgier smoked headlamps for a more forceful look. The headlights have also been changed from halogen to projector beam and the redesigned rear combination lamps now feature LED lights. The SR5 and Trail grades feature a color-keyed grille insert and front bumper that is surrounded by fog lamps set in sharply cut inlays that extend from the headlamps down to the bumper.
Both the SR5 and Trail grades will ride on 17-inch alloy wheels with a new and unique wheel-design to both, while the Limited continues to ride on 20-inch alloy wheels, which are now painted black prior to machining to add contrast. All grades continue to come standard with a full-size spare.
The 2014 4Runner adds four new exterior colors that include: Super White; Attitude Black Metallic; Barcelona Red Metallic; and Nautical Blue Metallic. Carryover colors include: Blizzard Pearl; Classic Silver Metallic; Magnetic Gray Metallic; and Black.
With the addition of an array of additional standard equipment, including formerly optional equipment that is now standard, 4Runner maintains its excellent value.
