This three-row SUV remains one of the most popular vehicles in the United States. Whether you’re more of a rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive type of person, the 2016 model is built to cover any kind of ground with whichever transmission you choose. Since 1984, the Toyota 4Runner has been a staple in the SUV community and it has never looked back. This fifth-generation 4Runner is available in three trim levels with each offering their own unique features. And when it comes to resale value, the 2016 Toyota 4Runner is near the top.


2016 Toyota 4Runner Review

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is powered by a 4.0-liter V-6 that is rated at 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque that is combined with a five-speed automatic transmission. Unlike its competition (namely the Highlander and RAV4) the 4Runner remains a truck-based body-on-frame SUV. What does that mean? It’s sturdier and can handle off-roading punishment. If towing is a need, the 4Runner excels in that department. When the vehicle is properly equipped, it can tow up to 5,000 pounds. The vehicle has lots of cargo capacity at 9.0 cubic feet behind the third row, 46.3 cubic feet behind the second row, and 88.8 behind the front seats.

You get even more with the TRD Pro model including an upgraded suspension with Bilstein high-performance shocks, skid plates, 17-inch alloy wheels, TRD front springs, design-friendly front grille, and black bumper accents.
