4Runner Interior Dimensions
The new 4Runner comes standard as a 2-row SUV that seats five people, but you can add an optional third row for a total of seven riders. You’ll find legroom measuring 41.7 inches in the first row, 32.9 inches in the second, and 29.3 inches in the available third, making the rear cabin most suitable for kids.
Cargo space is where the 4Runner really shines. It offers 47.2 cubic feet of space behind the second-row seats, give you plenty of room to pack up beach gear for a day trip to one of Louisiana’s pristine Gulf Coast beaches. Fold down the second-row seats, and you have 89.7 cubic feet-great for moving furniture and more.
Toyota 4Runner Specs
The Toyota 4Runner runs on a 4.0L V6 engine that delivers up to 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque, so you’ll have no trouble merging onto the highway, climbing steep roads, or towing up to 5,000 pounds. This SUV uses a 5-speed automatic transmission and has two different 4-wheel drive systems to help you keep traction.
Speaking of traction, you have a whole host of systems working together to ensure optimal grip with the road or terrain. They include the available Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System and Crawl Control, which automatically adjust the suspension and brakes, respectively, based on terrain conditions.
4Runner Utility Features
The Toyota SUV comes well-equipped with a variety of utility features to help you make the most of all the space and capacities of this SUV. Power Rear Glass comes standard: you can lower your rear window with the push of a button and grab items from the cargo area without even using the liftgate.
An available sliding rear cargo deck makes reaching or loading your gear in the cargo area easy. It supports up to 440 pounds. When you need to reverse or hitch up a trailer behind you, the standard backup camera can help you confirm what’s happening behind your vehicle for more peace of mind.
