On Features
As is the case with most of its truck models, Toyota allows the opportunity to get a basic level of equipment, luxury appointments, or specialized off-road equipment. The 2011 Toyota 4Runner remains offered in base SR5, off-road-oriented Trail, and luxurious Limited models.

Base 4Runner SR5 models start just below $30k and actually include a good level of equipment; it includes air conditioning, cruise control, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and an eight-speaker sound system with two auxiliary inputs.

The most desirable of the 4Runner models, the 4Runner Trail, offers all the good off-road hardware and electronics, but it's pricey. 4Runner Trail models get an upgraded audio system with XM satellite radio, a USB port, iPod connectivity, and Bluetooth audio streaming, while top Limited models step up to 15-speaker JBL premium sound, with a Party Mode that biases output to the rear tailgate speakers for better outward projection.

With this latest 4Runner, Toyota has honed in on its target audience with an excellent set of features and options.

Also available is a pull-out rear cargo deck that includes a separate small cargo box behind the rear seat and can function, when slid out, as a tailgating or camping seat that holds up to 440 pounds. Other desirable options include sonar-based rear parking, a navigation system, and a subscription-based Safety Connect telematics system. The desirable KDSS system that's available on Trail models is only offered with the navigation system, costing more than four thousand dollars in all.
