When you think of quality, toughness and reliability over a decade or more, you probably had the Toyota 4Runner sprung into your head. Yes, I know there are more than likely 100 other things that popped into your mind, but let’s just hypothesize it was indeed the 4Runner.
The Toyota 4Runner has been transporting families and off-roading enthusiasts alike for several decades, and the upcoming 2020 entry is no exception. Although not a full redesign (you will have to wait until 2022 for that one), the 2020 Toyota 4Runner is packed with useful and important changes you are sure to enjoy.
What changes will 2020 4Runner have?
2020 Toyota 4Runner is just a couple months away.
You asked for updates with safety and you got them. All 2020 Toyota 4Runner trim levels will feature standard Toyota Safety Sense with Pedestrian Detection (TSS-P). This is an important bundle of safety features designed to help prevent front and side collisions, along with nighttime assistance when driving.
Also, prepare for the introduction of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to the 4Runner lineup across-the-board. This is something Toyota fans have been asking about for years. Pretty exciting times for multimedia fans. The 2020 Tacoma will be the first Toyota model to receive the popular Android Auto, with many more mainstay Toyota models following suit in the coming months.
Another technological improvement to the 2020 4Runner is the multimedia screens. The TRD Pro will feature an 8-inch touch screen, while all other trims will see an increase in screen size. The only question is whether they will be 7-inch or 8-inch touch screens.
Army Green 2020 4Runner TRD Pro
Vehicle colors often match the personalities of a vehicle and its owners. This, too, should be a perfect fit for 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro and the people who buy them.
Toyota is compiling an impressive fleet of TRD Pro trucks and SUV’s across its lineup. The 2020 Tacoma and 2020 Sequoia TRD pro models have already been announced to proudly carry the exclusive Army Green color in their color palette.
The 2020 4Runner TRD Pro, along with the 2020 Tundra (which should have it but has not been announced yet), will also be offered in Army Green. Imagine an Army Green 4Runner TRD Pro rolling through the uneven sands of the nearest beach shore near you. Or traversing an uneven mountain trail. Magical.
It has become a tradition to speculate about and wait for the newest exclusive TRD Pro colors. This year, for 2019, the color is Voodoo Blue. For 2018 it was Cavalry Blue. Clearly this is way too early, but I wonder what 2021 has in store for TRD Pro.
Although I am entirely unsure of any other updates to the slightly-refreshed 2020 4Runner, I do have my wish list. I would like to see the use of more USB or input jacks throughout the cabin. I think with families utilizing and depending on their devices to stay charged, it would be terrific to see this improvement. I will have my fingers crossed.
We know this will not be the time for engine and transmission changes, but it is a time especially for safety and multimedia updates. What updates would you like to see in the refreshed 2020 Toyota 4Runner? Are you in the market for a new 4Runner or other SUV in the next year?
