Toyota's truck-based mid-size sport-utility vehicle receives a number of powertrain and cosmetic updates for 2005. A new five-speed automatic transmission is now teamed with the standard 4.0-liter V-6 engine that comes with variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) for improved shift quality. The available 4.7-liter V-8 powerplant is updated with VVT-I and now generates 270 horsepower, which is an increase of 35 over the 2004 model, and a slightly higher 330 lb-ft of torque. The V-8 remains mated to the five-speed automatic gearbox. In addition, exterior enhancements are added to differentiate each of the 4Runner's three trim levels: SR5 models receive a chrome grille, color-keyed front and rear bumpers, and black running boards. Sport Edition models get a color-keyed grille, black running boards, and silver-painted roof rails and crossbars. Meanwhile, Limited versions now come with color-keyed front and rear bumpers, black illuminated running boards, and black roof rails and crossbars. Rear-wheel-drive, all-wheel-drive, and four-wheel-drive models remain available. Standard equipment includes anti-lock brakes with brake assist, electronic brakeforce distribution and hill control, skid control and traction control, A third-row seat is among the vehicle's many options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
