Наше мнение о Toyota 4Runner 2023 года выпуска

Toyota 4Runner 2023 года — один из последних внедорожников, который все еще управляется как грузовик. В то время как большинство конкурентов перешли на более современные и разумные платформы с кузовом, 4Runner остается неизменным с 2009 года, используя шасси с кузовом на раме, которое сейчас встречается только на пикапах.

Такая конструкция придает 4Runner уникальные ощущения от вождения, явно напоминающие старую школу и аналог. Кому-то может не понравиться винтажное ощущение от кузова на раме, но нам нравится ностальгический настрой, который возникает при управлении кузовом, как у лодки, и медленном передаточном числе рулевого управления. Хотя мы бы не назвали ход мягким, он впечатляюще прочен, создавая впечатление, что вы можете без проблем преодолеть любой возможный рельеф.

Ощущение ретроспективы передается и в салоне, благодаря большому количеству физических кнопок и приятным большим ручкам управления климат-контролем и громкостью. Еще несколько лет назад мы считали это само собой разумеющимся. Сейчас большинство автомобилей оснащены емкостными кнопками или ползунками для управления важнейшими элементами.

Не все старое оборудование оценивает 4Runner в положительном свете. Трансмиссия по ощущениям сильно отстает от всего современного и турбированного, с недостаточным ускорением и настройками трансмиссии ниже среднего.

Что нового

Данное поколение Toyota 4Runner выпускается с 2009 года, что делает его одним из самых старых автомобилей, продающихся в настоящее время. В 2023 году Toyota добавила в стандартную комплектацию систему мониторинга слепых зон и предупреждения о пересечении дороги сзади. 2023 модельный год также является 40-летним юбилеем модели 4Runner в США, и Toyota отмечает это событие выпуском специальной версии, которую вы видите здесь.

4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition получил трехцветную графику по обеим сторонам автомобиля, а также на носу. Он также получил 17-дюймовые колеса бронзового цвета, бронзовую отделку салона и несколько уникальных эмблем.


  • Old-school truck-like driving experience is a refreshing feeling in a world of soulless crossovers
  • Excellent, muscular looks match the rugged on-road demeanor
  • Aging interior pairs big knobs and buttons to modern tech like Apple CarPlay


  • Naturally aspirated engine and five-speed auto feel like last-gen equipment
  • Missing tech available on competitors might irk some buyers
  • Won’t be on sale forever

Weighing in at nearly 5000 pounds, the 4Runner is no lightweight. Zero to 60 mph takes 7.7 seconds, onto a quarter-mile time of 16 seconds flat. Top speed is electronically limited to 113 mph.

Features & Specs

Despite its age, the Toyota 4Runner is packed with useful features. That 4.0-liter V-6 has variable valve timing, allowing a peak of 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. Out back you’ll find a tow hitch receiver with seven- and four-pin connectors, meaning you can tow most types of trailers. Towing capacity for the 40th Anniversary Special Edition you see here is 5000 pounds.

Inside you’ll find an eight-inch touchscreen as standard, there for navigating through standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It’s connected to an eight-speaker stereo system. The truck you see here also gets special 17-inch bronze alloy wheels a handful of nifty tri-color graphics, and copious special badging inside and out.


The 4Runner’s aging powertrain and blocky design means it’s not very efficient. The EPA rates the 2023 model at 16 mpg city and 19 mpg highway, for a combined 17 mpg. That’s about what we saw during our 300-mile test, where we drove through a mix of high- and low-speed stop-and-go scenarios.

Test Drive

The Toyota 4Runner drives far more like a traditional pickup truck than a newer crossover or SUV thanks to its body-on-frame construction. You get the feeling you can drive over anything thanks to the big all-terrain tires and generous suspension travel, but those with more experience with newer crossovers might not like the wallowy chassis and slow steering rack.


The 2023 Toyota 4Runner is available in six trim levels. The base SR5 variant comes in at $41,050, including destination charges. Above that sits the TRD Sport, starting at $43,910. The TRD Off Road is the next up the totem poll, starting at $44,895. The 40th Anniversary Special Edition you see here is a bit pricer, at $48,365 to start. Above that sits the Limited, at $49,785. At the top of the range is the desirable TRD Pro, starting at $56,015.


The Toyota 4Runner’s cabin gives away its age. The dashboard and center console are mostly in big, easy-to-use buttons and knobs rather than touch capacitive sensors and sliders. It’s a welcome sight that makes finding and using controls simple and easy, even if you aren’t tech savvy (or just have gloves on).

Of course, not even the 4Runner can escape the screen revolution. In the middle of the dash sits a big 8-inch infotainment touchscreen for controlling things like radio and navigation. Thankfully, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard.


The 2023 Toyota 4Runner is a great big SUV, which means plenty of room for occupants and mountains of storage space. There are front skid plates for protecting the underside of the car, as well as full-size spare tire in case you get a flat. To promote airflow through the cabin while the windows are down, the rear window for the hatch can actually go down via a power-operated switch in the center console.

Inside you’ll find a push-button start, power and heated front seats, and an eight-speaker sound system.


While the Toyota 4Runner doesn’t sport the latest technological advancements in the car world, it does have some useful tech features. There’s an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system mounted inside the dash for controlling the stereo and projecting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s also push-button start, heated front seats, an eight-speaker sound system, and a host of safety features, including pre-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and more.


The 2023 Toyota 4Runner is a big vehicle, which means there’s a lot of space inside. Behind the rear seats is a gigantic 46 cubic feet of storage space. That means you can fill all five seats and still have more than enough space for everyone’s luggage on a week-long trip.


Just because the Toyota 4Runner is an old vehicle doesn’t mean Toyota hasn’t kept it updated with the latest safety tech. There’s adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, a pre-collision detection system with pedestrian detection, automated emergency braking, lane departure warnings, and blind spot monitoring.

The 4Runner received a four-star rating from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, with four stars in frontal crash scenarios, five stars in side-impact scenarios, and three stars in NHTSA’s rollover probability rating.

The Toyota 4Runner has no fewer than six trims to choose from. The base SR5 model gets a 270-hp 4.0-liter V-6 paired to a five-speed auto, sending power to the rear wheels. You’ll have to upgrade to the TRD Sport to get 4WD, but you also get things like a power-adjustable driver’s seat, specific interior trim, skid plates, 20-inch wheels, and a hood scoop. Jump up to the TRD Off-Road and you get a locking rear differential and a handful of cosmetic TRD-branded upgrades.

The 40th Anniversary Edition gets a bunch of specific exterior graphics, a set of lovely 17-inch bronze wheels, bronze interior stitching, and a collection of badges. Go for the Limited model, and you get dual-zone climate control, 360-degree parking cameras, Toyota’s X-REAS adaptive suspension, and a ton of chrome trim.

The coolest and most expensive trim of all is the TRD Pro. It gets specific branded skid plates, unique Fox suspension, and 17-inch matte black wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires for ultimate off-road prowess. Things like 4WD and the rear locking differential come standard, as do a black grille and a roof basket.

Wrapping Up

The 2023 Toyota 4Runner is for those who want to break out of the norm of the SUV segment and feel something more when they get behind the wheel. The truck’s rugged demeanor, cool looks, throwback cabin, and ample space means it can do so many things for so many people. And because it’s a Toyota, it’ll last forever.
