When it comes to capability both on and off the road, there are few vehicles that can keep pace with the Toyota 4Runner. Toyota's do-it-all SUV has long been a staple for Massachusetts drivers who want to get out and explore New England in any conditions, and now the 4Runner has gotten even better. The all-new 2014 Toyota 4Runner still follows the same proven recipe that has served drivers so well for nearly three decades, but with a few new ingredients that make a very real difference. With that said, we've compiled five of our favorite things about the new 4Runner.
Sure, looks can be subjective, but we really like the aggressive new lines of the 2014 4Runner. With its hawk-eyed headlights and hood scoop, this ride looks like it means business. The 4Runner has always been an imposing figure, but the slight design refresh certainly makes it look better.
With a 270-horsepower V6 engine, you'll never be wanting for power or acceleration. Whether you're powering through mud on the trail, snow on the roads, or just scooting through a small break in traffic, the 4Runner certainly has the power to please.
Toyota has been making huge strides in this department over the last few years throughout their entire vehicle lineup, and the 2014 4Runner is no exception. With a standard touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as the optional Entune infotainment system, you'll always stay connected in this car. As easy to use as your smartphone, Entune lets you control everything from navigation to audio settings with voice controls!
With its body-on-frame construction, the new 4Runner can tackle the toughest trails and roads without breaking a sweat. Toyota has been building off-road capable vehicles for decades, and the new 4Runner is the culmination of everything they've learned over the years. Remember that huge snowstorm this past winter? The 4Runner can handle those conditions without breaking a sweat!
With optional 50/50 split folding third-row seats and a cargo deck that can handle 440 pounds, the 4Runner is a prime pick for those who have a lot of gear to carry around. There's ample room for a week's vacation in the mountains or a quick trip to the grocery store to stock up for a summer party.
Toyota hasn't released pricing and availability details just yet, but we'll be sure to keep you posted as soon as more information is released. Toyota plans to begin production of the 2014 4Runner in late August, so look for them to be available at our Boston Toyota 4Runner dealership sometime in September or October. The 4Runner is the latest example of Toyota shifting their lineup towards more stylish desgins, so we're really looking forward to seeing this one in person!
