Like it or not, the Toyota 4Runner's profile hasn't changed much over the past decade.

The 4Runner stays true to sport-utility tradition, which dictates a truck front end and a wagon body, and some chrome tossed in only where it'll protect the paint from rocks or trees. Last year brought a more aggressive, almost cartoonish front end to the 4Runner, along with some minor visual updates. But that silhouette hasn't changed.

It's brawny and aesthetically unconcerned with sleekness, setting the 4Runner apart from entries like the Ford Explorer and Dodge Durango. It's still mostly a conservative, traditional SUV look in the rear, with a wide, downward-sloping C-pillar looking to past generations of the 4Runner.

Inside, the 4Runner also feels traditional yet freshly detailed. It's quite upright, built on the fundamentals of the Tundra pickup and Sequoia SUV as much as it does take after 4Runner tradition--but again with better attention to detail throughout. The simple, sensible way the 4Runner's controls are arranged—and the chunky yet precise feel of them—is a highlight of its interior. Off-road-focused controls are located in an overhead console, keeping the center stack of controls straightforward and accessible. A secondary display sits atop the center stack, and redundant steering wheel controls access audio and Bluetooth functions--something that wasn't around when the 4Runner first came on the scene.

The new TRD Pro Series takes the 4Runner's angry-catfish look even further, with a unique grille with inset Toyota lettering, and a TRD skid plate visible underneath. It's also available in a TRD-exclusive color, Inferno.

Attitude Black replaces Black on all 4Runner models for 2015.

 

Conclusion

If you're into straight lines and squared-off corners--boy, does Toyota have an SUV for you.

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.
