Toyota's given the off-road-ready 4Runner some updates for 2020. They include Toyota's Safety Sense P, Connected Services by Toyota, push-start, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Plus a new trim level.
The new trim is called Venture, and it's intended for those who want to venture off-road. It's based on the TRD Off-Road model, which means it comes with features like Crawl Control with Multi-Terrain Select, locking rear differential, and Toyota's Kinematic Dynamic Suspension System. It adds Predator side steps, 17-inch TRD Pro wheels, and roof rack crossbars. Plus black exterior details like trim, badging, and mirror caps.
Toyota's Safety Sense P is the company's big suite of active safety bits and it gets added to the 4Runner this year. That means pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, auto high beams, and radar cruise control. All standard across the board.
The audio system screen gets bigger, with all models getting an 8.0-inch version. And on the inside, it adds both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone compatibility. Plus satellite radio and USB audio. The five-seat version of the Limited disappears from the options list.
Underhood is a 4.0L V6 with 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, with all getting a five-speed automatic and four-wheel drive.
The 2020 4Runner is on sale at dealers now, starting from $48,120. $1,965 more than last year.
