Craving the less-explored path? The 2019 4Runner offers unique off-road enhancements that will let you quench your thirst for tough topography.

All 2019 trims also come standard with Hill Start Assist Control, which holds the vehicle at a stop on steep inclines so you can transition from the brake pedal to the accelerator without rolling back. Even the most challenging of obstacles is just another day on the trails for the 4Runner.
You don't need to climb the 2019 4Runner's seven trims to get the features that you want.

On the 2019 SR5 and Limited trims, however, a three-row seating configuration was available when this vehicle was sold as new. This set-up increases seating capacity by up to seven people by adding two seats in the back of the vehicle; when not in use, these seats fold flat to maximize storage.

Both the SR5 and TRD are trims offered on the 2019 Toyota 4Runner. While the SR5 is the model's base trim, the TRD is a step up and is designed more for drivers who plan to do their fair share of off-roading.
