The 2021 Toyota 4Runner’s price has jumped up by $220 in comparison to the outgoing 2020 Toyota 4Runner. Now, the base 2021 Toyota 4Runner SR5 starts at a base MSRP of $36,340 while the top-of-the-line TRD-Pro is priced at an MSRP of $50,470 and is only available with 4WD. The interior is likely to remain unchanged from the previous year's model though, as is the powertrain setup, which is a 4L V6 motor producing 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque offering a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs.

However, an all-new Trail Special Edition model, which has been launched at a base MSRP of $38,315, gives the cabin of this mid-size SUV a slight refresh by adding black seating surfaces with tan stitching. Even the TRD-PRO trim gets new dampers for better performance off-road. Otherwise, all models of the 2021 Toyota 4Runner now come standard with LED headlights and Toyota Safety Sense as standard. Competing with the likes of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee2021 Dodge Durango, and 2021 Ford Explorer, we will find out how impressive the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is in comparison to the fierce rivals.

2021 Toyota 4Runner Engine and Performance

7.4/10

"The 2021 4Runner will lean noticeably if a corner is taken with anything like gusto." - KBB

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner, which comes at a base MSRP of $36,340 and goes all the way to $50,470 for the TRD PRO trim, retains the 4.0L Naturally Aspirated V6 motor which churns out 270-hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. It gets mated to a 5-speed shiftable automatic transmission, which can send power either to the rear wheels or all four wheels. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner's 4.0L V6 delivers punchy torque figures that allow it to tow a maximum of 5,000 lbs too. But, the 2021 4Runner is built especially to take over rough terrain due to the presence of an impressive 4WD system available for an additional $2,000.

The 4L naturally aspirated V6 motor under the hood of the 2021 4Runner feels a bit underpowered in comparison to that of 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2021 Dodge Durango, both of which come at a base selling price of $33,545 and $34,365, while the 2021 Ford Explorer savagely leads with its turbocharged 2.3L 4-cylinder motor that is capable of putting out 300 hp. When it comes to 0-60 MPH sprints, the 4L naturally aspirated V6 pushes the 2021 Toyota 4Runner from 0-60 MPH in 7.3 seconds while maxing out at a top speed of 115 MPH. Even here, the 2021 ford Explorer turned out to be the best, with a 0-60 MPH time of 6.8 seconds, which is followed by the 2021 Dodge Durango with a 0-60 MPH time of 7.6 seconds.

But overall, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner isn't a quick sprinter. Even the braking distance of 134 ft. exceeds the competitors like the 2021 Ford Explorer and the 2021 Dodge Durango. For the base price of $34,225, the most impressive performance is returned by the 2021 Ford Explorer. Its 2.0L motor is the smallest but returns class-leading power figures of 300 hp and 310 lb-ft torque. The 2021 Ford Explorer's 143 MPH top speed is the best in the segment too.

When power is sent to all the wheels, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner never comes across a surface it can't tread. The part-time 4WD system along with Active traction control makes crossing challenging terrains a breeze. Other than that, the 2021 4Runner also offers CRAWL control, along with multi-terrain selection. This feature adjusts the mechanics of the car to reduce wheelspin while also modulating acceleration and braking across five different low-speed settings. To further help in off-roading, Hill Start Assist Control and Downhill Assist Control are offered. However, the TRD PRO trim, which is offered at a base MSRP of $50,470 is even more capable due to the upgraded suspension and better tires.

2021 Toyota 4Runner Fuel Economy

5.6/10

The big, thrifty, and naturally aspirated V6 motor of the 2021 Toyota 4Runner manages to offer a gas mileage of 16 MPG in the city and 19 MPG on the highway with the RWD drivetrain system. Notably, that does not diminish when equipped with the 4WD drivetrain. The 23-gallon fuel tank saves the day by offering 391 miles of combined driving range.

But in comparison to the rivals, the 2021 4Runner comes in last in terms of gas mileage and tank range on offer. The 2021 Ford Explorer, with its 23 MPG of combined economy, tops the list of being the most frugal three-row mid-size SUV. But it is let down by its smaller 18.6-gallon gas tank. However, both the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2021 Dodge Durango, offering a combined driving range of 517 miles, really impressed us when it comes to gas mileage.

2021 Toyota 4Runner Interior

7.1/10

"The 4Runner also has generous cargo space, and its roomy cabin can be outfitted with a small third row." - Car And Driver

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner SUV can fit in five passengers, which can extend up to seven if you opt for the last row. However, that optional last row is most suitable for children. Coming with a large eight trim options with the base selling price of $36,340 for the SR5 trim and going to $50,470 for the top-of-the-line TRD PRO trim, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner offers many interior features like an 8-speaker audio system, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual-zone automatic climate control system, leather upholstery, and power tilt/slide sunroof.

There is also a new Trail Edition model, which comes at a base MSRP of $38,315 for the RWD variant and $40,190 for the 4WD variant, which adds black seats with tan stitching to keep things looking fresh. Otherwise, the cabin is quite roomy and the driver is seated higher as compared to other crossovers, while the power-adjustable settings can help anyone find a comfortable position. However, the interior space on offer with the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is not as impressive as the 2021 Ford Explorer. The trunk capacity of 9 cu ft is also much lower than the segment-best 43.3 cu ft on offer from the 2021 Dodge Durango

The upper trims even get an optional 15-speaker JBL premium audio system as well.

"The boxy Toyota looks to capitalize on its off-tarmac capabilities by way of a new Trail special edition model." - MotorTrend

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner gets a tough and rugged look, retained from the previous models as the car hasn’t gone through a major redesign for the last 10 years. However, this mid-size SUV from Toyota, which comes at a base MSRP of $36,340 for the SR5 trim, gets many exterior features as standard like LED headlamps, 20-inch 6-spoke alloy wheels, sunroof, heated and powered outside mirrors, and many more too. However, most of these trims are only offered with the higher trims like Nightshade and Limited, coming in at $46,810 and $45,395.

To keep things looking fresh, Toyota has introduced a Trail Special Edition model, which comes at a selling price of $38,315 for the RWD variant and $40,190 for the 4WD variant. It gets 17-inch, dark-gray TRD wheels and black exterior badges. Apart from that, new LED headlights adorn the front end of all 2021 4Runner models. If you opt for the TRD-PRO model, coming in at $50,470, it also comes with new flow-form wheels and a Lunar Rock exterior color scheme.

While these exterior refreshes are more than welcome, Toyota just has to accept that rivals like the 2021 Ford Explorer and the 2021 Dodge Durango have become a lot better at their game. The 2021 Dodge Durango is also longer and wider than the 2021 4Runner, offering it more street presence. However, the ground clearance of 9.6" for the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is the best of the segment. Some of the exterior features on offer with the 2021 Toyota 4Runner has been mentioned below:

  • LED daytime running lights
  • 20-inch alloy wheels
  • Optional TRD off-road wheels
  • Rain sensing wipers
  • Powered side mirrors
  • Projector-beam headlights

2021 Toyota 4Runner Safety

7.0/10

Toyota is known for its reliable safety features and build quality, and the 2021 4Runner gets the same blessings. Notably, the 2020 4Runnner was awarded a 4 out of 5-star ratings by the NHTSA in its respective crash tests, while the IIHS awarded the SUV with a "Good" overall rating in its crashworthiness tests. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner also earned a similar 4-star rating in the NHTSA crash-test. However, it wasn't selected as the top safety pick by IIHS.

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner fits in numerous safety and driver-assistance features that include Engine Immobilizer, Remote Anti-Theft Alarm System, Post Collision Safety System, Accident Avoidance System, Emergency Braking Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Pre-Collision system with pedestrian detection, Vehicle Stability Control, and Electronic Brake Force Distribution, which even the lower trims like the SR5 and Trail Edition, which comes at a base MSRP of $36,340 and $38,315, gets.

2021 Toyota 4Runner vs 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a powerful rival to the 2021 Toyota 4Runner. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers more performance, much better fuel efficiency, a more spacious cabin, and more interior and infotainment features too. Coming in at a base MSRP of $44,565, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee also undercuts the 2021 Toyota 4Runner in terms of price.

2021 Toyota 4Runner vs 2021 Dodge Durango

The 2021 Dodge Durango has brought the muscle car persona to a family SUV along with the same performance traits as well. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner, on the other hand, is a go-to for offroading fun but can be used for daily purposes as well. The 2021 Durango will take the face-off with better looks and aesthetic appeal, along with better performance, acceleration, interior space, and gas mileage. Coming at a base selling price of $34,365, the 2021 Dode Durango is almost $4,000 cheaper than the 2021 Toyota 4Runner too.

2021 Dodge Durango

2021 Toyota 4Runner SUV vs 2021 Ford Explorer

The 2021 Ford Explorer, which comes at a base MSRP of $34,225 turned out to be the best of the segment due to a much better motor under the hood that is capable of accelerating like a low slung sedan, superior cabin space and interior quality, more features and safety tech, and gas mileage as well. In comparison, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner doesn't stand a chance against the 2021 Ford Explorer.

2021 Ford Explorer

2021 Toyota 4Runner Final Verdict

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is a rugged mid-size SUV capable of delivering big mainly in off-road terrains. With eight different trims on offer, starting from an MSRP of $36,340, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner stands out due to its sporty attire and rugged body with 3-row seating and a roof basket for extra luggage. But the 2021 Toyota 4Runner isn't the best choice when considering a mid-size SUV for daily use, a result of its low MPG figures and average performance on offer. Hence, we would recommend you to get the 2021 Ford Explorer, which is significantly cheaper and more capable than the 2021 4Runner.

swift

Pros - Built structure,space, aggressive design in front

Cons - More like and suv for roads rather than off roading

spacious interiors, smoother suspension as required for off roading pretty swift with it's accelaration providing A bit of kick which makes it joyable ride. airy cabin with enough room for leg and head in every row, big 8inch infotainment,telescopic steering. well built in quality and design. tpms,collison warning system. good. expensive but good family car.

aggressive

Pros - Performance is top notch, ground clearance is good too, swift drive

Cons - Less work on design, quality for 2021 isn't uptp a certain mark as expected of a Toyota!,

big heavy bumper,powerful engine it drives good providing adequate comfort to passengers. 5 to 7 passengers space , leather seats,inner lights. it's decent for suv targeting off roading. toyota safety check is always great with many features like driver assist, parking assist, mirror assist. it's good but tank size is bit less still not an issue to be concerned with. you buy it because you like it for yourself.

The tough offroader

Pros - 1-Touch lock 2-Privacy glass 3-The black shade

Cons - 1-Firm seats 2-Old style steering 3-Small digital display

The privacy glass given in rear windows and rear wind shield is great feature the rear winshield can also be opened which is excellent add on. The drive is super smooth doesnt feel bouncy at all as offroaders and cars of this size generally do. Do not like the old style steering also the seats seem a bit firm to me. The fake front vents actually complete the look of the runner. Numerours saftey features.
