The Toyota 4Runner TRD check all the boxes and is loaded with trail-rated features. 4Runner TRD models get an upgrade with a brand-new Lunar Rock exterior color option, new black TRD Pro alloy wheels with Nitto Terra Grappler tires, 2.5-inch FOX® Internal Bypass Shocks, RIGID® LED Foglights and much more. The Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition is ready for family camping trips with a Yakima® LoadWarrior rooftop cargo basket, a lockable 40-quart cooler, all-weather floor liners, black interior with tan accents, a sliding cargo tray, and TRD Off-Road wheels. 

Toyota says it will only build 4000 copies, which are based on the base SR5 model and come with rear- or four-wheel drive. The Trail Edition is equipped with 17-inch dark gray TRD wheels and black exterior badges. Inside, it has black seats with tan stitching and all-weather floor mats. The 2021 4Runner also receives newly standard LED headlights, and the TRD Pro model gets a couple of unique upgrades: a new Lunar Rock exterior color, newly designed black TRD wheels wrapped in Nitto Terra Grappler tires, and retuned dampers that Toyota says are intended to improve isolation during trail driving.

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is one of the most rugged mid-size SUVs on the market, but also one of the oldest and least refined. While its sturdy body-on-frame construction and off-road-oriented options make it seriously capable when the road ends and bolster its outdoorsy image, its plasticky interior and inefficient V-6 engine are notable flaws.

The Toyota 4Runner is a remnant of yesteryear as one of the only body-on-frame midsize SUVs available in the U.S. today. In a sea of soft-roading crossovers, the 4Runner offers a ruggedness the class otherwise lacks. Though its design is over 10 years old, other than a new special-edition model, we expect the 2021 Toyota 4Runner to hit showrooms as a carryover model.

We expect the 2021 Toyota 4Runner to roll in with the same basic design it’s had since 2010. Sure, it’s front and rear ends have been through some refreshes over the years, but the bulk of this rugged SUV’s design remains. The only notable change will be the new Trail Edition, which will add dark-gray TRD Off-Road wheels and a Yakima LoadWarrior rooftop cargo basket. The 4Runner Trail Edition will be available in Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black, or Super White.

2021 Toyota 4Runner Engine and Performance

2021 Toyota 4Runner

The 4Runner’s 4.0-liter V-6 engine and five-speed automatic transmission can team with either rear-, four-, or all-wheel drive. Entry-level SR5 models are rear-wheel drive, while all other trims except the tippity-top Limited model come with selectable, part-time four-wheel drive. Those models have a manually selectable two-speed transfer case with a low-range setting. Limited models have full-time all-wheel drive with a Torsen center differential that can apportion torque to the front or rear wheels as necessary, depending on road conditions and which wheels have traction. In our testing, the mid-level 4Runner TRD Off-Road model provided dutiful acceleration, it’s old-school V-6 groaning along with a gruff exhaust note. Aged through the Toyota feels in action, its performance is right in the mix with its more modern competitors, including the V-6 Dodge Durango. And the Toyota’s rugged frame and torque-rich engine give it a leg up in towing; its 5000-pound capacity beats the Ford Edge and Wrangler while falling short of the more powerful Durango’s 8700-pound limit.

2021 Toyota 4Runner Release Date

Toyota has not announced the official release date for The 2021 4Runner, but based on previous years’ releases, we expect its arrival from late November 2020.

2021 Toyota 4Runner Interior


The interior of the 4Runner is not what you’d call state-of-the-art, with switchgear that could have come from the latter years of the last millennium. Lackluster materials and styling aside, it manages to comfortably fit humans front and rear in spite of its back-of-the-class interior measurements. We haven’t tested the optional third row, but we suspect that it’s best for children. A flexible cargo area and several large, deep cubbies in the front row mean that the 4Runner is as versatile a hauler as it is a rock-crawler.


Just don’t try to heave anything into the cargo hold unless you have a chiropractor on call—its floor is uncomfortably high off the ground. The two-row models that we tested had an optional pull-out cargo deck designed to make loading and unloading heavy items—up to 440 pounds—a little easier. It can also double as a tailgate for seating. This provides a flat load floor when the second-row seats are folded, but also robs the cargo hold of several inches of height. Even so, we fit an impressive 14 carry-ons behind the second row.
