Rugged, dependable and fun: meet the new 2021 Toyota 4Runner! This full-size SUV is a long-time favourite among Cariboo Region drivers, and is well known for its ability to seamlessly transition from city life into the BC backcountry. Boasting all of the power, comfort and driver-assists that you could ever need, the Toyota 4Runner is well-suited for families, adventurists, and, well, adventurous families! New for 2021, Prince George drivers will want to get their hands on the exclusive 4Runner Trail Edition, which features bold badging, 17-inch TRD wheels, all-weather floor mats and more. Let’s take a look at some of the top features that make the 2021 Toyota 4Runner such a great vehicle for life in Northern Canada.
All 2021 Toyota 4Runner models pack a healthy dose of driver-assist technologies to help you stay connected, no matter where life takes you. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are standard, allowing easy access to music, Google Maps, messaging services and more, right from your 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Available Toyota Premium Connected Services takes things a step further with services like Destination Assist and Safety Connect, both of which provide 24/7 access to a live agent for help with real-time navigation and emergency services. Your driver-assist package also includes Toyota’s suite of groundbreaking safety systems, including Forward Collision-Warning with Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Auto High Beams with LED Headlights and more.
Enjoy all that Northern BC has to offer from behind the wheel of a rugged Toyota 4Runner! The 4.0-litre V6 engine can be paired with either a front, rear or all-wheel drive option, and most trims feature selectable drive mode, so you can turn on 4Runner’s 4x4 capabilities when you need it, and turn it off to conserve fuel during highway commutes or city driving. The TRD Off-Road and Pro models boast some serious off-roading chops, including an electronically-locking rear differential for excellent traction on slippery mountain roads, Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control selectable drive-modes, and Toyota Racing Division’s famous suspension system. The 2021 Toyota 4Runner has a major leg up on competing off-roaders like the Jeep Wrangler when it comes to towing power, and delivers a max towing capacity of 5,000-lbs - 1,500-lbs more than Wrangler, and enough to haul most RVs, boats and toys down the West Coast with ease.
Many folks still think of rugged SUVs as being synonymous with a tight, rigid and unpleasant ride - but the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is here to put those notions to rest! The new 4Runner delivers plush and roomy seating, ample cargo space and versatile storage solutions throughout the cabin, all of which helps transform this full-size SUV into a functional and comfortable haven. An optional third row provides enough seating for 7, perfect for when you’re driving the whole team to DaddyO’s for pizza after the big game, or lay all of the seats flat for a cavernous interior that is cleared to carry more than 440-lbs of cargo in the rear. Prince George drivers will love 4Runner’s new pull-out cargo deck, which makes loading and unloading heavy items a breeze, and doubles as cool tailgate seating when you and your buddies need to take a load off.
“It wouldn’t be a Toyota review without a fond mention of the 4Runner’s reputation for bulletproof reliability: It’s something that could save your relationship, or your bacon, on lonely trails and in the wilderness.”
