The Toyota 4Runner, A Vehicle of Excellence for 40 Years!

According to the song: When you love, you’re always 20 years old! Actually, we consider that, this year, love is 40 years old. It comes in the form of the 2023 Toyota 4Runner, a utility vehicle with exceptional capabilities and a spectacular silhouette.

This year, the athletic full-size SUV is celebrating its 40th anniversary; more than four decades filled with adventures and journeys that have taken its owners all over the world.

The new version of Toyota’s 4Runner reveals a few interesting new features, but it doesn’t turn its back on its exceptional rugged qualities.

Which Car Brand Lasts the Longest?

Obviously, anyone who has ever driven a Toyota vehicle knows its reliability and durability. This is even truer with the 2023 4Runner, whose ladder frame construction, identical to the toughest trucks, is a long-life guarantee.

It’s this rugged durability that allows it to cross the roughest trails, or cruise the most demanding roads without ever giving in.

Add to this exceptional durability a 4-wheel drive system with high and low ranges, as well as a long list of driver assistance systems designed to master the most radical elements, and you’ll have an idea of what the 2023 Toyota 4Runner can challenge.

4Runner: A Safe All-Rounder

For those who are passionate about off-roading, you should know that the 4Runner’s dimensions also make it capable of overcoming all obstacles. It is designed with a 33-degree approach angle, a 26-degree exit angle and a 9.8-inch ground clearance.

Basically, it can dare any ride, without fear. The TRD Pro version also features underbody skid plates and aggressive shocks for all conditions.

Some of the standard features are particularly useful, especially in extreme circumstances. Take for example the descent aid system. Basically, all you have to do is to point out to Toyota Canada’s big SUV how fast you want to go down a steep hill, and it will handle everything itself.

This is just one of the many systems that equip this great adventurer, which is also fortified with a whole range of safety accessories, grouped under the name “Toyota Safety Sense”.

These include:

  • Pre-collision system
  • Lane departure warning
  • Automatic high beams
  • Dynamic radar cruise control (at higher speeds)

These driving assistances are in addition to the other safety features of the STAR system, standard on this 2023 SUV, including:

  • Anti-lock brake system
  • Brake assist
  • Smart stop technology
  • Vehicle stability control
  • Traction control
  • Electronic brake force distribution

2023 Toyota 4Runner: Power to Spare

The 2023 Toyota 4Runner interior is designed to be practical and easy to use. Because we know that enthusiasts will be all over the trails, we created ergonomic controls, using large buttons and easy-to-grip knobs, at the expense of sophisticated touch screens. This is an excellent decision when it comes to changing settings while riding on a muddy trail.

To power this great adventurer, Toyota relies on a V6 engine offering 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque, coupled with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The 4Runner towing capacity is 5,000 pounds.

For the time being, don’t look for a 4Runner hybrid or electric SUV in this category. We are banking on the efficiency of the traditional combustion engine to challenge any trail.
