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

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.

Toyota has made only one change to the RAV4 for the 2021 model year: Blizzard Pearl replaces Super White on the color palette. A plug-in hybrid RAV4 Prime joins the lineup, and the hybrid model gets a new XLE Premium trim; we review the two hybrid models separately.

Pros
Truckish good looks,
car-like road manners,
driver-assistance features are standard.

Cons
Spartan entry-level model,
engine moans and groans,
top trims can be pricey.

Pros
Quiet interior and comfortable ride quality
Abundant cargo and passenger space
Easy-to-use controls

Cons
Lackluster power from powertrain
Uncomfortable front passenger seat
Vague steering
