(2005 model shown)


Freshened with styling and interior enhancements for 2006, Toyota's truck-based mid-size sport-utility vehicle receives a restyled front fascia that includes a newly designed grille, front bumper, integrated fog lamps, and projector headlamps along with restyled taillamps and rear bumper. Additional styling changes include redesigned lower cladding, mudguards, and overfenders. Inside, the 4Runner features an updated instrument cluster, and a new mini-port in the center console allows audio-system connectivity for most portable music players. The standard powerplant remains a 245-horsepower 4.0-liter V-6 engine that includes Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). An available 4.7-liter V-8 likewise includes VVT-i and generates 270 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to a five-speed automatic gearbox. 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, Vehicle Skid Control, and Traction Control. Power seats are newly standard for 2006 on on Sport and SR5 V-8 models, and are optional on the SR5 V-6. Limited versions now receive standard memory seats and black wood graphic interior trim. Side and side-curtain airbags, a third-row seat, and a navigation system are among the vehicle's many options.
