Many fans and followers and enthusiasts have been waiting patiently to see the refreshed 2020 Toyota 4Runner. Fortunately, the 2020 model year 4Runners should be reaching dealerships in the month of September. Our wait is just about over.
2020 4Runner gets updates
I got my first look at both the exterior and interior for the 2020 4Runner TRD Pro in the all-new exclusive Army Green color. It looks fantastic to put it mildly, and I think previous, current and future 4Runner owners will really like it.
The outside looks slightly changed, with the addition of radar technology in the front grille to accommodate Toyota Safety Sense active safety features, standard for the first time ever on all 4Runner trim levels.
Inside the cabin, though, you will find quite a few pleasant updates and upgrades to provide additional convenience, especially with technology.
Multimedia screen changes to the 2020 4Runner
The multimedia section of the 4Runner receives a fresh, modern look. First, drivers will really appreciate the 8-inch touch screen that replaces the previous 6.1-inch screen seen on the 2019 4Runner. The screen always seemed small to me compared to the wide, spacious interior. I certainly welcome this change.
Technology buffs will be able to enjoy the popular applications Android Auto and Apple CarPlay across the board in the 2020 4Runner. Android Auto will first come to the 2020 Tundra, followed closely by the 2020 Sequoia, 2020 Camry and 2020 Tacoma.
Push Button Start in 4Runner
When I first saw that familiar push button in the 2020 TRD Pro, I almost could not believe my eyes. I am so used to using a traditional key when starting TRD Pro. This is an incredible and highly convenient update.
2020 Toyota 4Runner steering wheel updates
In a move similar to the newest popular Toyota Camry and Corolla and RAV4 models, 4Runner engineers have added lane departure alert and dynamic radar cruise control buttons to the steering wheels. This will help lessen distractions for drivers, while also making it really easy to set and change your safety settings while you drive.
4Runner Rear USB help in the back
For families with regular back seat passengers, help is on the way. The 2020 4Runner now has 2 standard USB ports in the second row behind the center console for charging and staying connected technologically.
