The 2011 Toyota 4Runner is recognized as the superior SUV for those who want a truck-based, go-anywhere vehicle. With complete redesign for the previous model year, 4Runner, in essence, went back to the roots as an SUV that upholds its rugged looks and serious off-road ability, but doesn't sacrifice any important amenities. In fact, the changes made were quite considerable to qualify it as the upgraded, fifth-generation model. It's the adaptable interior and unique cargo area that made the latest model more versatile, and more comfortable than ever. The 2011 Toyota 4Runner dropped the four-cylinder engine and gained a brake-override system which prevents the unintended acceleration. The 2011 model received the 4.0-liter V6 engine producing 270-hp. New design accentuates more rugged, powerful stance, featuring the 4Runners traditional form and progressive styling cues.
Toyota 4Runner is still early in its life cycle due to the last redesign. Moreover, the 4Runner would get a refresh for model year 2013, considering the fact that Toyota follows its traditional seven-year life cycle for trucks. Because changes usually include minor styling revisions, certain experts believe that this very model gives you more time to love the current styling before the next update.
