January 10th, 2023 by

Are you considering purchasing a 2023 4Runner? If you prioritize a roomy interior and stellar off-roading abilities in a vehicle, you’ll struggle to find a more suitable SUV on the market. Toyota’s 2023 edition of the 4Runner comes with a range of trim levels, allowing you to configure your crossover with an upscale interior or a more standard design. Here’s a look at what’s on offer for 4Runner shoppers at Classic Toyota in Tyler, Texas.

What Is the 2023 Toyota 4Runner?

The Toyota 4Runner is a midsize SUV with two seating configurations to choose from. The standard setup features two rows and a maximum capacity of five passengers, as well as a large cargo area at the rear. You can add a third row to the cabin to boost seating to seven people, although this layout will leave you with significantly less cargo space when all the seats are in use.

Under the hood, the 4Runner boasts a V-6 engine with 270 horsepower. Rear-wheel drive comes standard in some of the lower trims, but four-wheel drive is available to ensure added performance over rough terrain and trails. The 4Runner’s off-roading capabilities are strengthened with skid plates and a healthy ground clearance of up to 9.6 inches, allowing this crossover to tackle large obstacles with ease.

The 2023 4Runner lineup includes eight trims to choose from: SR5, SR5 Premium, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, 40th Anniversary Edition, Limited, and TRD Pro. The base MSRP is around $38,000. If you’re unsure which trim would be best suited to your needs, you can talk with one of our Toyota experts to learn more about the advantages of the TRD Pro or TRD Sport.

4Runner SR5

This base trim level features cloth upholstery in the cabin and a power-adjustable driver seat. It has a leather-wrapped steering wheel and reclining second-row seats for comfort. The SR5’s infotainment system is well equipped, featuring an 8-speaker stereo and 8-inch screen. You get a Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth as standard connectivity options. Other useful features include USB ports and proximity keyless entry.

The SR5 also offers several safety features, including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. On the highway, you’ll benefit from lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

The SR5’s standard setup has two rows of seating. However, an optional third row is available as an upgrade.

4Runner SR5 Premium

The SR5 Premium is a good choice if you’d like some extra comfort in the cabin. It has synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, and power adjustments for the passenger seat. Toyota added a navigation system to help guide you to your next destination. You’ll also gain a garage door opener and the option to add a moonroof.

4Runner TRD Sport

The TRD Sport boasts many of the same interior features as the SR5 Premium, including synthetic leather seats. However, it has a trim-specific upgraded sport suspension. You can add automatic side running boards and a surround-view parking camera, which gives you an aerial view of your 4Runner as you move it into position.

4Runner TRD Off-Road

For those of you planning to spend time off the beaten track, the TRD Off-Road gives you the tools to do just that. It features a locking rear differential, crawl control, and multi-terrain modes, which improve the 4Runner’s performance on mud and other surfaces. You can also upgrade to an adjustable suspension to get the most out of this crossover’s ground clearance. This added flexibility is sure to come in handy if you need to tackle rocks or other obstructions.

4Runner TRD Off-Road Premium

The cabin in the TRD Off-Road is based on the SR5’s features, including cloth upholstery and a power-adjustable driver seat. The Off-Road Premium has the same off-roading features as the TRD Off-Road but bases its interior design on the SR5 Premium. That means you gain access to synthetic leather upholstery and heated front seats, among other upgrades. One unique upgrade option is a multi-terrain view monitor, so you can keep track of any approaching obstacles.

4Runner 40th Anniversary Edition

If you’d like a 4Runner that stands out with unique exterior design features, the 40th Anniversary Edition could well be your perfect choice. It boasts bronze wheels, trim-specific badging, and other accents. The interior also gets its own accents unique to the 40th Anniversary Edition design, such as logos on the floor mats and seats. The rest of the interior features are based on what’s offered in the SR5 Premium trim, so you’ll also get an upscale cabin to relax in.

4Runner Limited

The Limited trim is the one to go for if you want to add some real luxury to your driving experience. Drivers benefit from memory settings for the driver seat, and all passengers are sure to enjoy relaxing on the genuine leather upholstery. Ventilated front seats and dual-zone climate control will help you adjust the cabin’s temperature, regardless of how hot or cold it is outside.

Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro

The TRD Pro is the top-of-the-line trim for a reason. It combines impressive off-roading abilities with a luxurious cabin for you to enjoy. Additional features offered in this trim include Fox front and rear shocks, a roof rack, and TRD springs. An extra TRD skid plate provides added protection if you plan on challenging your 4Runner on rough terrain.
