Toyota has revealed the facelifted 2014 4Runner for its North American market.
The 2014 Toyota 4Runner has the same body-on-frame construction as before, and is available in SR5, Limited and Trail trims. It also carries over the same 4.0-litre VVTi V6 engine as the pre-facelift model – with 270hp and 278lb ft of torque – sending power through a five-speed ECT-i automatic transmission.
Exterior changes include a new front grille and headlamps, with the SR5 and Trail trims receiving colour-keyed grille inserts, while the Limited trim gets a chrome-plate grille insert. In addition, the Trail trim gets a hood scoop and silver painted front and rear bumper accents, while all the trims get LED head- and tail-lights.
The SR5 and Trail trim come equipped with fabric seats, while the Limited comes standard with leather seats (a third row is optional). The 4Runner now comes with a new instrument panel, with the Trail version having an overhead console with off-road control switches, a compass, and outside temperature display.
The 4Runner can be had as a rear-wheel driven 4x2, part-time 4x4, or full-time multi-mode 4x4 with a locking centre differential. The SR5 and Trail come standard with 17-inch wheels, while the Limited is equipped with 20-inch wheels. The SR5 and Trail trims come with a low-range gearbox as well.
As for comfort features, the Limited trim comes standard with keyless entry and automatic dual-zone climate control, while a reverse camera is standard on all the 4Runner trims. Other features include: a sound system with eight speakers, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, USB/iPod connectivity, and Bluetooth.
Toyota have yet to say how much the 2014 4Runner will cost, but expect prices to be the same as, or a fraction over, the 2013 model’s MSRP of $31,490.
