The go any where SUV from Toyota was an instant hit when Toyota launched it in 1984 as a compact SUV based on the pick-up. Since then over four million 4Runners have been sold and the off-road powerhouse is still going strong as a modern terrain tamer with impressive sales figures. Toyota has decided to roll out a 40th Anniversary Special Edition variant to celebrate the marque’s 40-year run.
The 2023 Special Edition is based on 2023 4Runner SR5 with unique tri-color stripes and bronze wheels. Special Edition model is limited to just 4,040 units and features unique bronze-colored 17-inch rims, tri-colored stripes on its body and TRD Pro’s heritage grille with “Toyota” badge. The retro SUV is offered in White, Midnight Black Metallic, and Barcelona Red Metallic with attractive retro stripes especially the classic Toyota yellow-orange-red combo. Interior, you get unique stitching, bronze accents and Special Edition badging.
Special Edition is powered by the same 4.0 liter V6 generating 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque paired with a 5-speed transmission. Equipped with limited-slip differential 4Runner has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Integrated tow-hitch receiver and wiring harness come standard.
All-new 4Runner and 40th Anniversary Special Edition variant will be available later this year.
