2021 Toyota 4Runner Review


With 35 years of experience on the road, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner takes you out of your comfort zone and into the fun zone. Wherever you’re headed throughout Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, or Carlisle, Pennsylvania—and beyond—its road mastery carries you through every trip with agility and excitement. Come see what you can find at Faulkner Toyota Harrisburg.

Fulfilling Space and Amenities

How many people and how much can you pack into the 4Runner? Well, that all depends on whether you fill your cabin with the available third row of seating. This extra row increases your passenger capacity from five to seven. With 10 slots (12 on 3-row models) open for cups and bottles, there’s more than enough cubby holes for everyone’s drinks, too.

As for space throughout your SUV, let’s go over the dimensions.

 Dimensions  First Row  Second Row  Third Row
 Headroom  39.3 inches  38.6 inches  34.3 inches
 Hip Room  56.5 inches  55.7 inches  43.3 inches
 Legroom  41.7 inches  32.9 inches  29.3 inches
 Shoulder Room  57.8 inches  57.8 inches  57.7 inches


These measurements exclude the available power tilt/slide moonroof, but other optional amenities, like dual zone automatic climate control and perforated leather-trimmed seats, can be included in the cabin.

In front, the 4Runner comes with an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat and accompanying 4-way power adjustable front passenger seat. You’ll also get a maximum 88.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the back seats folded down.

Technology for Your Treks

Included in the 4Runner cabin, you’ll discover useful technology tools that ease you into your next trek. Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ keep you connected to your friends, family, and music, while the available Premium Audio system with 15 JBL® speakers plays your personal soundtrack with verve. An 8-inch touchscreen will display what you need to know, from directions to your destination to which song is playing on the radio.

The 4G LTE Wi-Fi Connect will accommodate five devices, so everyone on board can stay connected. If you add Destination Assist, this system will help you find places by providing extra assistance.

Tripping With Safety

When you’re embarking on your next excursion, Toyota Safety Sense™ P helps ensure you’ll remain safe. It includes the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Alert.

This suite of systems also provides Dynamic Radar Cruise Control that gives you the power to pre-set your speed and maintain it. To help you see what’s surrounding your vehicle, the integrated backup camera displays a projected path, so you can go in Reverse with assurance.

Performance to Get There

Performance helps you get there, wherever there may be. The 4.0L V6 engine generates 270 horsepower with 278 lb-ft of torque to push past the tough spots. A 9.6-inch ground clearance saves the undercarriage from damage, and the available Crawl Control helps you pass over a range of terrain with five low-speed settings.

With the addition of the optional Multi-Terrain Select, it features four modes that regulate wheelspin and provide optimal traction to your 4Runner. You can even tow up to 5,000 pounds with the already integrated towing receiver hitch in place.
