In an age where the monocoque FWD SUVs are taking over sales charts due to their high-end features and accessible pricing, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner seems like a relic of the past. Featuring body-on-frame construction and all the markings of an SUV from yesteryear, the 4Runner offers lackluster on-road dynamics for an equally immersive off-road experience.
Right from the lowest trim onwards, the 4Runner is well suited to take on challenging terrain, especially in its TRD Pro trim. While the engineers at Toyota haven’t taken any steps towards refining the 2021 4Runner up to modern standards, they have been sure to bestow the SUV with advanced off-roading tech and electronics. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner goes up against the likes of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango, and the Ford Explorer.
