About The Toyota 4Runner

The Toyota 4Runner started its life as a compact SUV but later got reclassified as a mid-size one when it entered its 3rd generation of redesign in 1995.

In Japan and some other territories, the 4Runner was known as the Toyota Hilux Surf up until 2009 when the range was pulled.

It competes with other compact SUV’s such as the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V in the USA, Canada and other car-buying regions around the world.

The original SUV back in the early 1980’s was a simple pickup truck with the addition of a plastic shell to house the occupants, over the years the car has been improved and specialized vastly.

The platform was taken from the massively popular and indestructible Hilux. Unfortunately, the rear suspension wasn’t upgraded to cope with the additional weight added to the rear and so the early 4Runners suffered from sagging suspension.

Over the years the car was revised to include safety features such as ABS, traction control and vehicle stability control to make it more appealing to families, a large and lucrative market.

Sales suffered in the 2000-2010 decade, most probably as the choice of engine sizes were limited to large only during a time when fuel prices were rocketing northwards.

As Toyota released the fifth-generation model in 2009 and added much more fuel-efficient engines to the range sales increased quickly to levels not seen before the fourth generation.

The fifth-generation also has important technological improvements like mobile device connectivity built-in, crawl control and a rear lock differential for improved off-road performance.
