One of the best parts of researching and shopping for a new Toyota 4Runner is the wide variety of available trim levels. People have many options based on their driving style, their hobbies and interests, and their family dynamic.

There are eight different grades for 2021 4Runner. Oh wait, I forgot about the all-new 4Runner Trail Special Edition. Make that nine trims.

Time to dive deeper into 4Runner Venture.

I see 4Runner Venture as a mixture of unique styling, function and utility.

The major “first impression” features are found with the roof and the wheels.

Venture comes standard with roof rail cross bars and a Yakima MegaWarrior cargo basket. This may be perfect for coolers, luggage, kayaks and any other recreational equipment you can imagine.

These 4Runner wheels really stand out to me and look tough and stylish. Look for 17-inch dark gray metallic alloy wheels with black accents, as well as P265/70R17 all-terrain tires.
