Vehicle Overview
Toyota's midsize 4Runner is a truck-based SUV with available V-8 power and room for up to seven passengers. The SR5, Sport Edition and Limited trim levels are available. Similar truck-based SUVs include the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, Ford Explorer and Nissan Pathfinder, all of which have optional V-8 engines.

New for 2009
Toyota adds a Trail Edition package for 2009 that includes locking front and rear differentials as well as added skid plates for offroad use. On the inside, Trail Package 4Runners receive water-resistant seats and a portable navigation unit that's docked in the stereo system.

Built on a 109.8-inch wheelbase, the 4Runner is 189.2 inches long. The Sport Edition features a hood scoop, sport suspension and smoked chrome grille.
  • 16-inch wheels
  • 17-inch wheels (Sport)
  • 18-inch rims (Limited)

Without the available third-row seat, the 4Runner seats five people on front buckets and a three-seat, fold-down 60/40-split rear bench. Seven occupants fit inside models equipped with a third-row seat. Cargo-area backup mirrors mounted in the rear pillars allow the driver to see oncoming vehicles when backing out of a parking stall.

Under the Hood
Available engines include V-6 or V-8 power with rear- and four-wheel-drive models. Four-wheel-drive-equipped 4Runners feature Downhill Assist Control that restricts speed when going down a steep grade. Hill-start Assist Control, standard on rear- and four-wheel-drive models, works to keep the SUV from rolling backward on an upgrade.
