The 2014 Toyota 4Runner is largely the same as the previous model with the most obvious change being that the front fascia of the SUV has been changed to give it a much “tougher” look. There are also interior changes and some technology updates coming in 2014, but the drivetrain and power-train will remain unchanged — not necessarily a bad thing. The “Trail” edition also features a hood scoop and painted bumper accents in silver.
The 4Runner’s taillights are now LEDs on all models and for the driver there is an all-new Optitron instrument panel with multi-information display. The 2014 4Runner will be available in three trims which includes the SR5 (base model), Limited (fully loaded), and Trail — geared towards those looking for more off-road capabilities. The base, SR5, and Limited models will also have an optional third-row seat arrangement allowing the 4Runner to seat seven people.
The Toyota 4Runner Limited will feature black 20-inch alloy wheels, the SR5 and Trail ride on 17-inch allow wheels featuring a new design. All models will have a full-size spare tire/wheel. The 4Runner Limited will have automatic dual-zone climate control system and will come standard with leather-trimmed interior including ventilated and heated front driver/passenger seats.
