The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is a mid-size SUV and a new entry-level 4Runner standard equipped with a Trail package.
“When it’s time to get away from it all – whether camping in the summer, skiing in the winter, or exploring Canada all year round – the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is the perfect vehicle that’s ready for anything,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “It’s unquestionably capable and rugged yet also surprisingly comfortable and refined. And this year, we’ve enhanced the adventure with a terrific lineup of models, headlined by the 4Runner Trail.”
The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is equipped with a 4.0-litre V6 and five-speed automatic transmission that delivers a peak 270 horsepower – and with a Class IV trailer hitch factory installed, every 4Runner is ready to tow up to 2,268 kg (5,000 lb). Most models feature on-demand four-wheel-drive, which delivers go-anywhere capability when needed while contributing to fuel efficiency.
4Runner has a rugged body design featuring a power moon roof, roof rails, running boards and alloy wheels. New for 2021, all models are standard equipped with LED low beam headlights and LED fog lamps.
Inside, 4Runner has seating for five or seven adults, depending on model. The heated front seats are large and supportive, while second row seats recline up to 16 degrees, and fold at the touch of a button for instant cargo capacity. Seven person models feature split folding third row seats.
All models include the Toyota Smart Key system with push button start plus multimedia systems built around 8” display audio touchscreens and featuring steering wheel-mounted audio controls, voice recognition, and other features.
A long list of standard safety systems starts with Toyota Safety Sense – a bundle of active safety technologies that help extend the driver’s awareness and ability to avoid collisions, or mitigate their effect. Other standard safety features include the Toyota Star Safety System, a back-up camera and eight air bags.
