New for 2019

The TRD Pro model gets a number of updates including new Fox internal bypass shocks, LED fog lights, a TRD roof rack option, a TRD skid plate and a black hood scoop insert. A moonroof and a JBL audio system are now standard on the TRD Pro grade. A new Nightshade edition also joins the lineup and comes with black 20-inch alloy wheels, black side mirror covers, black roof rails and black side mirror covers.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

One of the last body-on-frame SUVs left, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner offers true off-road capability in a midsize package that slots below the full-size Sequoia. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is optional. The 2019 4Runner can seat up to seven with the optional third row (not available on TRD models).

4Runner SR5: The base SR5 grade includes 17-inch alloy wheels, cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry, a rearview camera, a USB port, Bluetooth, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen.

4Runner SR5 Premium: Moving up to the SR5 Premium adds heated side mirrors, heated front seats, leatherette upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and navigation.

4Runner TRD Off-Road: From the base SR5's features, the TRD Off-road adds black 17-inch alloy wheels, TRD off-road maps, CRAWL Control, the Multi-Terrain Select system, an electronically controlled locking differential.

4Runner TRD Off-Road Premium: The TRD Off-Road Premium includes the same standard features as the SR5 Premium and standard TRD Off-Road model.

4Runner TRD Pro: For the most off-road capability, the TRD Pro model builds on the TRD Off-Road model with TRD-tuned front springs, Fox high-performance shocks, a JBL audio system, a TRD skid plate, LED fog lights, TRD 17-inch alloy wheels, and TRD Pro floor mats.

4Runner Limited: Essentially the luxury-oriented 4Runner, the Limited gets 20-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, keyless entry and start, dual-zone climate control, parking sensors, and the X-REAS Sport Enhancement suspension.

4Runner Nightshade Special Edition: The Nightshade special edition builds on the Limited trim with black door handles, black interior accents, black side rocker panels, and black interior accents.

Toyota's Kinetic Dynamic Suspension system is an option on the TRD Off-Road models. Running boards are also available as a standalone option.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Toyota 4Runner is powered exclusively by a dated 4.0-liter V-6 with 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired to an equally ancient five-speed automatic transmission. EPA fuel economy ratings are 17/21 mpg city/highway for rear-drive models and 17/20 mpg with four-wheel drive.

Safety

The 2019 Toyota 4Runner received a four-star overall rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible four stars).  In IIHS testing, the 2019 4Runner received a Good rating on all categories except the driver's side front small overlap impact where it received a Marginal rating and the Headlights test where it got a Poor rating (Good is the highest possible score). Active driver assistance features are not offered on any trim.

Utility

With the optional third row, the 2019 4Runner has 9.0 cubic feet with all seats in place. Capacity grows to 46.3 cubic feet with the third row folded and 88.8 cubic feet with the second and third rows down. Two-row variants have 47.2 cubic feet behind the second row and 89.7 cubic feet with the rear seats down. Five-seat models are available with a sliding cargo floor that cuts capacity to 46.3 cubic feet with all seats up and 88.8 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. All models can tow 5,000 pounds of payload when properly equipped.

What We Think

In a 2015 4Runner Limited First Test, we weren't fans of the seating position, which feels like you're on top of the vehicle instead of in it. We found the infotainment system unintuitive and the touchscreen small in a world where some vehicles offer a 7.0- or 8.0-inch unit as the smallest option. The optional third-row seats offer very little space, especially with the second row all the way back.

The 4Runner's on-road manners expose its body-on-frame roots, featuring plenty of body motions through turns. On a pavement, ride quality is good for a truck-based SUV. TRD models offer superb off-road performance, thanks to its Multi-Terrain Select system and knobby tires, as we noted in a 2017 TRD Pro First Test. Toyota's 4.0-liter V-6 is barely enough to haul the 4Runner around and the five-speed automatic is slow to respond to driver inputs.

Cool Fact

The Toyota 4Runner is closely related to the global Land Cruiser Prado and is assembled in Toyota's Tahara plant.
