There is a new 2016 Toyota 4Runner in the making which is going to bring a lot of innovations to the brand. In fact, the model is going to sacrifice a little bit of its road finesse and refinements in order to gain a little bit more off-road capabilities and is going to enhance its style making it very noticeable and comparable with the others.

The 4Runner is actually one of the few SUVs which are keeping to that regular formula and a body on frame style that has characterized this segment in the past. It still keeps to its body toughness and an all-out imposing look which many people appreciate and hold to. But it adds just enough of flare and modern attributes like driving and handling and fits it in perfectly and makes it work together.

If you are thinking of using your SUV for towing or hauling or doing some heavy lifting with the car, perhaps some other Toyota SUVs are going to be much more appreciated, like the RAV4 or the Highlander. But the 4Runner is a much more sophisticated machine and one which adds elegance to a vehicle like this and can serve as a daily commuter or any ordinary vehicle for that matter and it does it perfectly. But people who are off road enthusiast can also make great use of this vehicle even with the lack of a full off-road package.

The FJ Cruiser might have been pulled aback a bit which leaves a lot of room for the 2016 Toyota 4Runner to take its place. You can even enhance your vehicle with a TRD Pro Series  package and make it much more suitable for different terrains. All in all the new release is a great one and everything there is to know about this car is available in the review below.

2016 Toyota 4Runner exterior and interior news and changes

The exterior design of the 2016 Toyota 4Runner remains a standout when it comes to the truck segment and keeps true to a more traditional way of design with this setup. With a wagon body and some chrome added here and there it is a car that will be more than appreciated by the fans and the public. Perhaps the front end of the car is its largest flaw as it has always had a massive and almost cartoonish like front end which will be kept here for this model as well.

The profile of the car is still as brawny as it gets and the silhouette does not care for aesthetic appeal that much as it keeps things simple. This is actually what separates the vehicle from the Ford Explorers or the Dodge Durango cars as it mainly keeps sleekness out of the picture. Thus we can consider the design as conservative and traditional as any SUV that you have seen with a slopping C-pillar which is more characteristics of the past generations.

But the TRD Pro Series has some unique details to itself, most certainly the unique grille with inset Toyota lettering which gives it an angry-catfish look. There is also a TRD skid plate placed underneath and comes with its own unique TRD color choices, namely the Inferno color palette which is only available for this model.

The inside of the 2016 Toyota 4Runner also has a traditional design to it but adds a lot of fresh new details as well. It actually combines some of the design cues that we have seen from the past model and does well to include it with the fundamental details that have made the Tundra and the Sequoia vehicles, but does so by paying a lot of attention to details first of all.

The most important part of the interior is the simplicity the controls have been rearranged but in a way that still keeps them feel chunky and accessible. The overhead console holds the off-road controls which makes the center stack of controls pretty straightforwardly accessible to you. On the center stack you will find a secondary display where there are some steering wheel controls placed as well along with some other features for the car. We are loving the new design and think that this is one of the advantages that the vehicle has to provide.

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is going to come offered with only one engine option. The engine in question is the 4.0-liter V-6, that makes 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque, which makes it very quick in the various situation that you can use it in. Generally speaking, the appearance of the 4Runner is a bit deceiving as it does not suggest that it can move the way it actually can. The steering and maneuverability are all very much advanced and work much better than you would have thought they would. The EPA rating is set at 17/22 mpg for rear wheel drive, and 17/21 mpg for four wheel drive.
