NEW 2021 Toyota 4Runner


The 2021 Toyota 4Runner ranks 20 out of 23 Affordable Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Toyota 4Runner, as well as reliability and safety data.

Auto writers say the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is one of the more capable off-roaders in the class, but it falls short of crossovers that offer more refined interiors and better ride quality on paved roads.

The 2021 4Runner is powered by a V6 engine, which some reviewers say makes adequate power. However, critics comment that the 4Runner’s five-speed automatic transmission could use at least one more gear to make better use of the engine’s power, which they say is part of the reason the 4Runner can feel sluggish at times. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 17/21 mpg city/highway, which is typical for the class. Reviewers agree that the 4Runner, especially the Trail trim, has decent off-road capability, but they also say that it can’t match the driving refinement of most crossovers on paved roads.

Some test drivers appreciate the Toyota 4Runner’s straightforward, utilitarian cabin, but many also take note of the cheap plastics throughout the interior. Test drivers agree that the first- and second-row seats are comfortable and spacious, while the optional third-row seat, which boosts seating capacity to seven, is best left to kids. The 4Runner has comparable cargo space with many SUVs in the class, and reviewers find features like a retractable rear window and optional cargo deck useful. Still, rivals like the Chevrolet Traverse have greater cargo capacity. Reviewers generally like the 4Runner’s standard Entune infotainment system for its ease of use, and they note that the 4Runner also has straightforward climate controls. Other standard features include a backup camera, Bluetooth and an eight-speaker stereo. Major options include navigation, a 15-speaker JBL stereo and dual-zone automatic climate control.

    • I love auto lux! They put me in my dream car and the absolute best price! I truly cannot believe the wonderful deal I got! Zorik was so patient and helpful and kindly answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. This is the ONLY way to get a car! It literally took me 20 min to return my previous lease, sign paperwork, and hop in my new wheels. I\'ll never go anywhere else. Auto Lux will always have me as a customer!!! Thanks So much Zorik!

    • Six months ago we dealt with Auto Lux Sales and Leasing Company. Last time we got Toyota Prius and are very happy with the auto and the leasing requirements. This time, the focus of our attention was Chevrolet cruse. On the right date we came for the auto but on the last moment sales Manager, showed us an incredible option: Chevrolet Trax, at this moment the only car available. And it was just the color we wanted. Eventually we got this automobile. Thank you Auto Lux !!! For $145 per month, without down payment ,for 24 months, automobile in LT package !Roman G
