No thanks. I prefer the ones from the late 90's/early 00's. And what's with all of the cars having heads/tails that stick out funny? That trend really needs to die.

Sorry guys but they'll never go back to the 4Runners they had in the 80's and 90's. That was their glory days.... to these days I still think those trucks look good. Along with the 4Runner that came just before it.... this one is just meh.

Teh 22R will nevar die!

I think it has something to do with safety regulations. I agree that it looks horrible though....

Those older ones were death traps.

I lost two friends in one and Bobby Hurley's career was ended in accidents that I blame completely on how ridiculously underengineered those things were.

Lightbulb No More i4


According to sources at Toyota, the 4-cylinder version of the venerable 4Runner is being discontinued after just 1 model year. The main reason for the drop is the extremely low take rate, with the V-6 model accounting for well over 90 percent of 4Runner sales.

Why such low interest? The 2.7-liter I-4 doesn't offer much of a fuel economy advantage versus the larger 4.0-liter V-6 - especially when considering its 113-horsepower and 100 pound-foot disadvantage. In fact, EPA ratings for the 2 are just a single mpg apart from each other, registering at 20 mpg combined city/highway for the smaller engine and 19 mpg combined for the V-6 in the same SR5 2WD trim. And any way you slice it, 157 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque isn't a whole lot when you have nearly 4800 pounds of curb weight to move around.

No word on how many 4-cylinder 4Runners were sold, but we estimate the figure to be less than 1000. That would make this frugal 4Runner one of the rarest Toyotas of the last several decades.

Stay tuned to Motor Trend Online for more information on the 2011 Toyota 4Runner tomorrow.

Funny that Toyota, the Masters of Milquetoast, are dropping their 4-banger just as Ford adds one to the Explorer.

During Toyota’s launch event for the new 4Runner Thursday ahead of the Chicago Auto Show, group vice president and general manager of theToyotaDivision at Toyota Motor North America Jack Hollis, said in passing “every 4Runner is fitted with a new instrument panel.” He completely glossed over the extremely important fact that this new instrument panel features a tachometer that only revs to 4500 rpm.

The current generation Toyota 4Runner, having been in production since 2009, features only one engine for worldwide consumption. The 1GR-FE V6 is that long-serving 4-liter that Toyota has made available in almost all of its trucks and SUVs since 2002. Unless Toyota has all of a sudden seen fit to reduce the 1GR’s redline from 6000 rpm to 4500 rpm, it would seem Toyota is finally planning a diesel option for the 4Runner.

Being that the rest of the world receives a Toyota Hilux pickup with an available 1GR V6 as well as a diesel option, it would make sense for Toyota to use this same diesel option under the hood of the 4Runner. The 1GD-FTV is a 2.8-liter turbodiesel inline four which makes 175 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque.

It was a bit tricky of Toyota to sneak that image into its press conference, seen in the below video at timestamp 15:44, but a bit fun that it wasn’t quite ready to play that card just yet.
