2011 Toyota 4Runner (5th Edition)

The all-new fifth-generation Toyota 4Runner, introduced for model year 2010, gains minor option revisions for 2011. The 4Runner was completely redesigned and re-engineered for the previous model year. Its adaptable interior and unique cargo area make the newest 4Runner smarter, more comfortable, and more versatile than ever.

The 4Runner combines rugged body-on-frame construction with suspension technology that yields the kind of ride comfort more often associated with car-based platforms. The newest 4Runner is available in a variety of configurations and in three models: a well-equipped SR5, top-of-the-line Limited, plus a Trail grade for maximum off-road capability. Optional third-row seats allow for up to seven-person capacity.

Drivetrain configurations include rear wheel 4×2, part-time 4×4 and full-time multi-mode 4×4 with a locking center differential. All models are equipped with a 4.0-liter V6 teamed to a five-speed ECT-i automatic transmission.

The 2011 4Runner is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 that generates 270 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of torque. Through the use of advanced engine management that includes dual independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), the new 4.0-liter engine gained power over the previous 4Runner’s V6 and even V8 engines, yet is more efficient than either. The new 4.0-liter fuel economy ratings rival car-based platforms at 17 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for 4×2 models (22 mpg highway for 4×4). Maximum towing capacity is 5,000 pounds.
