What Is the 2019 Toyota 4Runner?
In an era where most SUVs have a car-based platform, the Toyota 4Runner is something of a throwback with its rugged body-on-frame construction. Power comes from a standard 270-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 engine that teams with a five-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered, and the 4Runner can seat up to seven with an available third row. Competitors include the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

What's New on the 2019 Toyota 4Runner?
The trail-conquering TRD Pro model gains a new Fox suspension, a roof rack, a moonroof, an updated front skid plate and a JBL premium stereo. There's also a new Nightshade Special Edition available for the Limited trim level that adds black 20-inch wheels, a black bumper and grille accents and black cabin trim.

What Features in the 2019 Toyota 4Runner Are Most Important?
Off-road enthusiasts will appreciate aggressive exterior looks and available goodies like a locking center differential, a two-speed transfer case, a locking rear differential, crawl control and a selectable terrain management system.

Standard entertainment and connectivity features include a 6.1-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Bluetooth phone connectivity and streaming audio and satellite radio. Navigation and an upgraded stereo are optional. Standard convenience features include a power-sliding liftgate window, while upscale options include leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and push-button start.

Should I Buy the 2019 Toyota 4Runner?
Toyota's solid 4Runner remains one of the last truck-based mid-size SUVs and serves as a multitool on wheels. With a respectable 5,000-pound towing capacity and nearly 90 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume, the 4Runner blends capability and off-road prowess. The 4Runner's on-road driving manners, however, are disappointing, and the SUV lacks advanced active safety systems as well as fuel-efficient drivetrain choices.
