Introducing the New 2016 Toyota 4Runner


The new 2016 Toyota 4Runner at your local Toyota dealership in Sarasota, Germain Toyota of Sarasota, combines legendary off-road capabilities and rugged good looks with a stylish interior packed with advanced technology. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the 2016 4Runner’s off-road bloodline runs deep, making it the go-to off-road SUV of choice for those who take their journey of adventure seriously.


For more than three decades, the Toyota 4Runner has epitomized what a true off-roading SUV should look like. The new 4Runner TRD Pro continues this rough-and-tumble legacy with an aggressive, no-nonsense exterior that’s ready for action. As Bengt Halvorson, editor of puts it, “The 4Runner is authentic, and that’s part of what makes its rugged style work so well. It’s not just an image conjured up for marketing purposes; this truck family has had the same basic wagon shape for years. The beltline is high, the proportions are chunky, and the downward slope of the rear pillars are a direct callback to models going back three decades or more.”

Uncommon Interior Comfort

The TRD Pro’s spacious interior doesn’t scrimp on creature comforts. In fact, the TRD’s cabin features firmly bolstered seats swathed in red-stitched SoftTex® material. With premium materials, available leather steering wheel and leather seating surfaces, enhanced Entune™ Audio System with navigation, streaming audio, apps, and more, the TRD may look tough on the outside, but it offers premium comfort on the inside.

The Ultimate Off-Roader

While we’re on the subject of toughness, let’s explore why the 4Runner TRD Pro can take whatever you throw at it with confidence. How about TRD-tuned 3.5-in. Bilstein® coil-over-shock matched to the TRD’s custom-tuned springs for starters? This setup, plus the TRD remote-reservoir Bilstein® rear shocks and Nitto all-terrain tires give you a 1-inch lift in ride height. The Multi-terrain Select and Crawl Control features let you dial in four different modes designed to adjust wheel spin, engine throttle, and braking pressure.

Power? You bet. The Toyota TRD Pro pumps it out with a massive 4.0-liter, 270-hp V6 with variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) that generates a prodigious 278 lb.-ft. of torque. Oh yeah, this bad boy is ready to rumble.


Unexpected Refinement

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner also shows its softer, more urbane side too. The upmarket Limited model features a chrome-accented front-end design that is unique, as well as are the chrome door handles, high-end custom alloy wheels, LED taillights, projector-beam headlights, and aero mirrors. This sophisticated 4Runner looks just as good traveling the back roads as it does taking you to the country club or for a night on the town.

Superior Ride & Handling

Just because the 2016 Toyota 4Runner is built for the great outdoors doesn’t mean that it has to ride like a bucking bronco. As’s Bengt Halvorson points out, “Steering feel and maneuverability are unexpected delights in the 4Runner; at low speeds especially, the 4Runner handles with better precision and control that you might expect from such a big, heavy model.” Halvorson adds that, “The 4Runner is relatively refined inside with a tight, quiet highway cruising experience, a reasonably smooth ride, and very little road or wind noise.”

You can order up your 4Runner to suit your individual tastes and off-roading requirements. There are four distinct 4Runner models to choose from: The well-equipped SR5, the rugged and ready Trail, the luxurious Limited, and the awesome TRD Pro. There are two different 4-wheel drive systems: the SR5’s 4-wheel drive with Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) and the Limited’s full-time AWD featuring a limited-slip differential and locking feature.

And the 2016 Toyota 4Runner also has plenty of space to store your gear, with up to 88 cubic feet of configurable cargo capacity with the fold-flat 2nd-row seat. The 4Runner’s 40/20/40 seats let you customize your cargo needs quickly and easily. And you’ll appreciate the 4Runner’s power rear glass that gives you an extra breath of fresh air when you need it.

High Tech, Superior Safety

Regardless of which 2016 Toyota 4Runner you choose, you’ll find an array of standard and advanced technology features. A 6.1-in. high-resolution touchscreen display is standard on all models, along with the exclusive Optitron instrumentation for optimal viewing, night or day. The available Entune® App Suite keeps you connected, informed, entertained, and on course. Entune® features a world of mobile apps that let you make dinner reservations, set your destination, and utilize Yelp®. Plus, crank up your soundtrack with streaming audio such as iHeartRadio®, Slacker Radio, and more. You can also make and receive calls wirelessly using Bluetooth® and hook your smartphone directly into the system with a USB jack to manage your playlists.
