The 2011 Toyota 4Runner gains minor option revisions for 2011. Its adaptable interior and unique cargo area make the newest 4Runner smarter, more comfortable, and more versatile than ever.
The 4Runner combines rugged body-on-frame construction with suspension technology that yields the kind of ride comfort more often associated with car-based platforms. The 2011 4Runner is available in a variety of configurations and in three models: a well-equipped SR5, top-of-the-line Limited, plus a Trail grade for maximum off-road capability. Optional third-row seats allow for up to seven-person capacity.
Drivetrain configurations include rear wheel 4×2, part-time 4×4 and full-time multi-mode 4×4 with a locking center differential. All models are equipped with a 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 teamed to a five-speed automatic transmission.
An array of advanced features, formerly only available in the Toyota Land Cruiser, further boosts off-highway capabilities. The Trail grade offers Toyota’s Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System as an option. KDSS significantly improves terrain-following ability by dynamically disconnecting stabilizer bars to allow for more axle travel, and better suspension articulation in slow, difficult terrain.
The 2011 4Runner’s design emphasizes a rugged, powerful stance, combining the 4Runner’s traditional form with progressive styling cues. All 4Runner grades feature rugged bumpers and wide fender flares. Aluminum alloy wheels are 17-inches in diameter on SR5 and Trail grades and 20-inches on the Limited, and include a full size spare. The headlamp and taillight systems offer better performance and convey a technical design quality.
Base model estimated mpg: 17/23
Estimated starting price: $29,525
