2023 Toyota 4Runner: An Old-School Truck For The Wildest Adventures

The 4Runner is undeniably one of the oldest-looking body-on-frame nameplates in the mid-size segment, and while it doesn’t hide its age, its go-anywhere ability, and advanced off-road features are still unrivaled.

2023 marks the 4Runner 40th anniversary, and to commemorate this event, Toyota has added a unique model to the SUV’s lineup. The 40th-anniversary special edition stands out from the rest of 4Runners’s lineup with a tri-colored line that runs from the grille to the body sides, 17-inch bronze-painted wheels, and bronze-colored interior design accents. If you are considering leasing a 2023 Toyota 4Runner, this article walks you through the latest 4Runner.

Engine And Performance  

Beneath the hood of every 2023 4Runner is an aged powertrain that comprises a thirsty 4.0-liter V6 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive or one of two enhanced four-wheel drive systems. The 4Runner’s V6 makes 270 horsepower & 278 lb-ft of torque and propels the rugged Toyota from zero to 60mph in about 7.7 seconds. The 4Runner could be more impressive on the road but shines in rough terrains with the help of its body-on-frame construction, enhanced suspension, and other well-incorporated off-road features. The 2023 Toyota 4Runner has a max towing capacity of 5000 pounds.

Fuel Economy

The 4Runner’s ancient V6 lacks some of the modern enhancements that make an engine more fuel-efficient. Irrespective of the configuration, every 2023 Toyota 4Runner gets an EPA rating of 16 mpg city and 19 mpg highway.


Inside, the 4Runner is respectably versatile, but it needs a thorough revamp, as its interior materials and layout are still behind that of other mid-size SUVs. Like other Toyota models, the conventional two-row 4Runner has a roomy interior, but we are still determining if adults will enjoy their stay in the optional third row. Every model gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display surrounded by buttons and knobs. Other standard features include a power rear liftgate window, cloth seats, an 8-speaker audio system, leather-wrapped steering wheel, etc. Shoppers looking to deck out the 4Runner can choose from a pool of exciting features such as a power tilt/slide moonroof, heated, and ventilated front leather-trimmed seats, 15-speaker JBL sound system, dual-zone automatic climate control, etc.

Safety And Driver Assistance

Toyota has equipped every model of the latest 4Runner with a plethora of high-tech safety and driver assistance technologies, including;

  • Blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Pre-collision system with pedestrian detection
  • Lane departure alert
  • Dynamic radar cruise control
  • Automatic high beams
  • Vehicle stability control
  • Backup camera
  • Electronic brake-force distribution
  • Smart stop technology, etc.
