The fans of powerful SUV with excellent off-road abilities can starts looking forward to a new Toyota 4Runner that has been planned to hit the roads as a 2019 model. The new 2019 Toyota 4Runner will tend to be innovative in terms of an exterior design as well as engine options under its hood.
The exterior of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner will remain well-known and keep most of its traditional features, but also become more appealing to its customers and improve some parts of equipment compared to the current model. This powerful four-door pickup truck with great on-road and off-road capability will acquire more modern and attractive design instead of just being a rugged truck for your working conditions. As far as we have been informed, it seems that the 2019 4Runner might be using a brand-new platform that will combine the high-strength steel with some lightweight materials such as aluminum. Therefore, it will save some weight as it has been the case with most of the next-generation trucks. When it comes to appearance itself, the front fascia will probably undergo most of the innovations and changes. The new 4Runner will get a larger grille than the one seen on the current model and more aggressive as well. The headlights and taillights will be slightly redesigned and they will be using the latest LED technology. The bumpers will also be modernized with larger intake vents. Looking at the side profile, the new 4Runner will be standing on a new set of wheels and all-terrain tires, probably 20-inch. The lines seem smoother and the overall styling curvier.
Inside the 2019 Toyota 4Runner you will find a spacious and comfortable cabin that will be much more improved and often compared to the newest Tacoma. This model will be perfectly able to accommodate up to seven passengers with its three-row seating configuration. The seats will be supportive, comfortable, power-adjustable and covered in better-quality materials. Also, the driver will get numerous technology features that have been improved. For instance, a 6.1-inch HD touch-screen display with the infotainment system and options such as navigation system, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot, audio system and many more.
According to the information our team has got, it seems that the 2019 Toyota 4Runner will stop using its current 4.0-liter V6 and get a smaller 3.5-liter naturally-aspirated V6. Such an engine should be able to deliver around 300 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque, but this information has not been confirmed yet. It will be mated to either five or a six-speed automatic transmission, but we expect more information about this section soon.
