2021 Toyota 4Runner Review


If you’re looking for your next full-size SUV, are a fan of Toyota vehicles, and have an adventurous streak, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner might be the vehicle for you. This adventure-minded SUV is ready to hit the off-roading trails and tackle whatever obstacles you might encounter.

To help drivers from the areas near Boerne, San Antonio, or Kerrville, TX, learn more about the Toyota 4Runner, Vic Vaughan’s Toyota of Boerne has put together this vehicle review. Give it a read to learn about the 4Runner’s engine, off-roading abilities, and interior.


Toyota 4Runner Engine Specs

2021 Toyota 4Runner: Engine and Performance

The 4Runner has an impressive engine that powers this SUV. The standard engine of the 4Runner is a 4L V6 engine that puts out a robust 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. Working with this engine is the standard 5-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) and sequential shift mode.

The 4Runner also comes standard with a part-time 4-wheel drive system. This system gives you 4WD when you need it, and turns it off when you don’t. This means you’ll get traction in bad weather or on rugged terrain—and better fuel economy while the road is smooth and the weather is good.


Toyota 4Runner Off-Roading

2021 Toyota 4Runner: Off-Road Capability

Off-roading is where the 4Runner really shines. It has many off-roading features, starting with its suspension. The 4Runner has an independent double-wishbone suspension in the front, and a coil-spring suspension in the rear to handle the uneven terrain. To help protect the engine and suspension, the 4Runner comes standard with skid plates.

If you’re someone who loves off-roading wherever you might go and trying out different terrains, the available Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) system might be for you. You can choose four terrain modes that adjust wheelspins and engine throttle.

Itching to take on rocks or difficult terrain while on your off-roading adventures? The available Crawl Control (CRAWL) feature is a must-have. This system will control the throttle and braking using a few low-speed settings so that you can focus on navigating.


Toyota 4Runner Interior

2021 Toyota 4Runner: Interior

While you’re on the go, whether on the road or off it, the 4Runner will keep you comfortable and connected. The seats are comfortable with fabric-trimmed upholstery. The driver’s seat has standard 8-way power adjustments with lumbar support. If you prefer the look or feel of leather, you can opt for available SofTex® seating.

The interior of the Toyota 4Runner also has a standard 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with eight speakers. From this system, you can control some vehicle features, hook up your smartphone to access music and your favorite apps, and more. You can even do it all without taking your hands off the wheel with standard voice recognition.

If you’re someone who prefers built in-vehicle navigation, you can upgrade the 4Runner’s infotainment system to include navigation. You’ll also get enhanced voice recognition and dynamic POI search.
