New 4Runner Trail Special Edition.Standard LED headlights for all 4Runners.TRD Pro trim gets new wheels and retuned shock absorbers.

Pros
Lots of off-road capability
Wide variety of configurations to suit many buyers
Versatile cargo area, especially with the optional slide-out floor

Cons
Choppy ride quality compared with more modern crossover SUVs
V6 engine is not particularly fuel-efficient
Tall step-in height makes for awkward entry and exit

The latest 4Runner adds a new limited-production Trail Edition for 2021. 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.

Pros
Highly capable off-road,
roomy cargo hold,
loads of standard driver assists.

Cons
Poor fuel economy,
sloppy on-road ride-and-handling,
shabby interior materials.

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is a hugely capable and cool throwback SUV with a modern price attached.

Pros
Very capable
Good looks
Big touchscreen
Old-school SUV
Awesome TRD Pro versions.

Cons
Outdated crash-test scores
Old interior
Dismal fuel economy
Others are more comfortable

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner has a few different options packages, but otherwise carries over from last year unchanged.Because the value of the 4Runner lies predominantly in its off-road capabilities, we recommend the TRD Off-Road Premium. This trim gives access to important hardware including the locking rear differential and KDSS, the latter of which improves all areas of the 4Runner's skill set.

PROS
Serious off-road capability few other competitors can match
Variety of configurations to suit many buyers and price points
Versatile cargo area, especially with optional slide out

CONS
Tall step-in height makes for ungraceful entry and exit
Lacks many of the latest driver safety aids
Standard V6 is not particularly fuel-efficient
Choppy ride quality compared to more modern crossovers
