This is another Toyota that is specifically meant for the wealthy as far as Nigeria is concerned. It doesn’t come cheap. But we have some older models on the roads which are owned by regular citizens (mostly the elderly). It can be attested that the Toyota 4runner is a durable SUV

It’s hard to deny that the Toyota 4Runner remains one of the most charming SUVs on the road. It’s capable, it’s bulletproof and, perhaps most importantly, it just looks amazing. Toyota’s 4.0-litre engine might be reliable, but it also reliably consumes fuel at an alarming rate. The truck’s interior has plenty of passenger and cargo space, but its cabin materials are drab. On regular roads, this truck-based SUV drives like, well, a truck: its handling feels loose, and its ride is uncouth. The 4Runner can go places many of its classmates can’t, but outside of those limited-use cases, it’s undeniably antiquated.

As a carryover model, the 2023 4Runner will share the same exterior design as the SUV that’s currently on sale. The current 4Runner features an aggressive design with a split grille and a massive air intake. Chunky front and rear bumpers, large fender flares, and a blocky design highlight the 4Runner’s rugged character.

Living with a 4Runner is a pretty pleasant experience, but it has one fairly obvious drawback: its tall ride height. That makes getting in and out somewhat difficult, though side steps are available to help out. It’s really no worse than any full-size pickup in this regard, but other crossover SUVs are easier to access

Toyota doesn’t try to blow away buyers with interior material quality. But expect some modest upgrades to help fend off rivals.

At the moment, the Toyota 4Runner comes equipped with standard features for 2022. For instance, features such as power seats, power windows, dual-zone climate control, infotainment system, etc. We have come to expect these highlights on any vehicle like the 4Runner. It also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Standard driver aids include traffic-adaptive cruise control and forward collision mitigation.

Once you’re inside, you’ll find easy-to-understand controls and a highly adjustable driving position that affords a commanding view ahead. There’s plenty of space in both the front and back rows. Visibility to the sides and back is surprisingly good because of the 4Runner’s squared-off shape and windows.

2023 Toyota 4runner Trims

The Toyota 4Runner SUV is available in eight trim levels: SR5, Trail Special Edition, TRD Sport, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited and TRD Pro. (TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development). Toyota may include a Hybrid trim in the 2023 4Runner but it isn’t certain as at the time of this writing.
