New Toyota 4Runner 2011

Toyota 4Runner was essentially a compact pickup truck with five-passenger seating and a permanent bed shell. My, how times have changed. When it was first introduced in the 1980s. While the 4Runner remains a body-on-frame based SUV, it has evolved considerably, and it now competes against a sea of on-road biased, car-based crossovers.

All-new 2011 Toyota 4Runner is longer, wider, and taller than before, and supported by both the engine 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a four-speed automatic (available for rear-drive models only), or 270 horsepower Toyota, 4.0 -liter V-6 and five-speed automatic combination. Instead of getting softer, the new 4Runner play in its uniqueness and strength, with Toyota making it even more off-road capable than ever before.

Toyota has added several cool trail features to the 4Runner, including Crawl Control, a system that controls throttle and brake at low speeds, enabling the driver to better focus on steering inputs. The 4Runner also has an impressive 9.6 inches of ground.

What's New
We were hoping for the addition of the company's new 4.6L V-8 as an option, but that hasn't happened. In fact, there are only minor changes for 2011: the sport/utility vehicle receives a new brake override system. In addition, the sliding cargo tray/cargo organizer is a standalone option on two-row Limited models; the cargo organizer is a separate option on Trail models.

The new 4Runner is bigger, more rugged-looking, and bolder than before, with a bold, in-your-face style that screams off-road. The 4Runner Trail Edition adds black fender flares, grille, utility roof rack, and the hood received a hood scoop. Seventeen-inc

Five-passenger seating is standard for the 4Runner, and room for seven is optional. All 4Runners come standard with an eight-speaker audio system, tailgate party audio, a slide-out cargo tray, and an eight-way adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar su

Performance & Handling
While the 4Runner excels off-road – Toyota tested it at speed in the Baja 1000 and as a slow rock-crawler on the world-famous Rubicon Trail -- it is surprisingly capable on the road as well. While its body-on-frame architecture and live rear axle can make for a bouncy ride, its steering is linear and responsive, and its brakes are responsive and easy to modulate. The 4.0-liter V-6 4Runner reaches 60 mph in 7.8 seconds.

Driver and front passenger airbags are standard, as are front seat-mounted side airbags, roll-sensing side curtain airbags for all rows, and dual front knee airbags. Stability control, traction control, and ABS with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist are also standard.
