The 4Runner has just been updated a few months ago with the which is likely going to be the last year when this model will be available for sale. Because of that it is probably the best one so far as well as the most refined and it still manages to stay strong on the market after more than 10 years since the original design was launched. The 2016 model comes with quite a few new features, most of them being new safety measures which are there to allow the 4Runner to protect its passengers better.
2016 Toyota 4Runner Price
The SUV still uses the same ladder chassis as before but this time around Toyota went ahead and tweaked the suspension for slightly better on-road use without sacrificing the off-road performance. The price has been kept at the same level as before with the base model being available from some dealers from as low as $32,000 while the top end versions and the special edition TRD Pro model will go to as far as $46,000 which is a bit much considering it is not the most comfortable SUV out there.
Despite that though, it is one of the few remaining true off-road machines which offer all the commodities you would expect from a higher end car. The interior is well packed and offers pretty much all the things you would want from such a car. The 2016 Toyota 4Runner adds a better audio system even on the base model as well as forward braking assistance as standard. Buyers will also get the chance of selecting more safety features as well as a new phone screen mirroring system which allows even the more basic models to use satellite navigation.
The exterior has been carried over pretty much completely from the 2015 model and even the TRD version is no different. It comes with the same 31.5 inch off-road tires and slightly taller suspension system while the base models are identical to the previous version.

2016 Toyota 4Runner Specs
Engine wise, the 2016 Toyota 4Runner is rocking the same old 4 liter naturally aspirated V6 which offers a still adequate 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque which are routed via a 5 speed automatic gearbox to the rear wheels. Options include an all wheel drive system which unfortunately is not available with standard lockable differentials but the TRD model gets a limited slip rear differential which should help quite a bit. The fuel consumption is very bad and just like before, the towing capacity is barely average which is mostly due to its aging gearbox which just can’t handle any extra load.
