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.
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.
