2017 Toyota 4Runner Walk Around


The 4Runner looks like what it is, a brawny SUV, not what it’s not, a crossover. The nose looks like it belongs on a truck, appropriately. The 4Runner doesn’t care one bit that it’s not sleek, or that it looks like a grumpy catfish. The boxy body has flash, chrome sprinkled around. The windows are high and rear pillars slope downward toward 1986.

The TRD Pro Series takes the mad fish look one step farther with its mouthy grille and skidplates like silver scales under the chin. It’s available in a TRD color called Inferno.

Interior

The 4Runner cabin isn’t fancy but it’s detailed well, with simple and sensible controls that are chunky yet still precise. Unlike the exterior, the interior avoids chrome. There are fewer controls on the centerstack, because the offroad controls are overhead. The steering wheel has audio and Bluetooth buttons.

The front seats are wide and supportive, and with the optional perforated leather, they look great and are comfortable for long trips. The contoured and reclining rear seat actually handles three adults.

A third row is available for the SR5 and Limited, but it’s difficult to climb back there.

Overall, the interior is nice, but still less refined than the Explorer or Durango.
