5 reasons to buy the 2023 Toyota 4Runner

1. Superior off-roading

The 2023 Toyota 4Runner proudly announces that it is not a car-based crossover. This body-on-frame SUV goes where few other vehicles can, effortlessly crawling through mud, rocks, and sand in style. The mid-range TRD Off-Road trim has standard Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control for when the roads get rough or disappear altogether. Look to the range-topping TRD Pro for a lift kit, a ¼-inch aluminum skid plate, and FOX® high-performance shocks and sport springs.

2. Cargo space aplenty

The Toyota 4Runner has plenty of room for its front-seat or second-row passengers, but the real story here is the cargo. Behind the folding rear seats, there is 47.2 cu-ft of space (approximately six checked bags) for all your camping gear or outdoor adventures. With the rear seats down, cargo space nearly doubles to 89.7 cu-ft. The optional slide-out cargo tray assists with unloading heavy items, while the TRD Pro has a massive roof rack for hauling oversized gear such as kayaks or surfboards.

3. Standard driver assistance

Despite the classic off-road ethos, the 2023 4Runner delivers modern tech through plentiful standard driver assistance features. Even on the base SR5 trim, you can expect a pre-collision system that applies the brakes for you if it detects an obstacle or pedestrian ahead. The standard automatic high beams ensure you don't accidentally annoy other drivers at night. This year also sees the 4Runner gain blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as standard features on all trim levels.

4. Great towing

The biggest toys won't fit in any SUV, so it's time for a trailer. The 2023 4Runner has a torquey 4.0L V6 engine, paired with a stout five-speed automatic transmission. The combination is suitable for a maximum estimated towing capacity of 5,000 lbs when properly equipped.

 That's enough to haul two heavier UTVs, plus a trailer. This towing capacity is the same whether you prefer rear-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive configurations.

5. 40th Anniversary Special Edition

New for 2023 is a package that celebrates 40 years of this great SUV. The Toyota 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition adds retro exterior graphics over bold paint and bronze-painted 17-inch wheels. Inside, you'll find subtle bronze stitching, special edition dash badges, and embossing on the seats and floormats. It's limited to 4040 units, so if 1980s flair is your style, keep a close eye out for one of these.
