Fans in the Toyota world have been treated to a crazy amount of information in the past few weeks.
We have learned about Corolla Cross, brand new all-electric bZ4X, new grades of 2022 Tacoma (including Electric Lime Metallic TRD Pro).
Still waiting on a “details announcement” for 2022 Tundra, though.
But we do have 2022 4Runner TRD Sport.
2022 Toyota 4Runner News
2021 4Runner Limited - Magnetic Gray Metallic
Toyota released a detailed press release discussing the newest grade of 4Runner for 2022. The 4Runner TRD Sport should benefit those people who want smooth on-road comfort with some off-road capabilities as well. A little Limited-like luxury features thrown in too.
But in the Toyota press release (on June 1st), there was a small blurb that I found interesting.
“For 2022, all 4Runner grades include LED headlamps (low beams), fog lamps and now LED high beams as well.”
This should be helpful because every Toyota 4Runner for 2022 model year comes with a complete set of LED headlamps, LED daytime running lights, LED fog lights and now LED high beams.

Currently for 2021 4Runner only the Limited, Nightshade and TRD Pro have standard LED high beams. Of course, Nightshade has been discontinued along with Venture Edition for 2022.

Since 4Runner will not be redesigned for 2022, we can focus on what we know for sure will be different.
Toyota 4Runner will be adding in a new Technology Package for (at least) 4Runner TRD Sport. This includes blind spot monitor and, more than likely, rear cross-traffic alert.
A big question on many minds is whether Electric Lime Metallic will follow Tacoma’s lead and be the exclusive Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro color this upcoming year.
One wild rumor is that Toyota will feature two different colors for 2022, with Yellow being the TRD Pro color for 4Runner.
I do not think this is the case. My instincts, along with a little logic, tell me we will be seeing a 2022 4Runner TRD Pro in Electric Lime announced in the coming weeks.
Nobody except Toyota personnel in the know really have the answer to this one. And they are notoriously secretive with such juicy details. Until the time is right.
Time for your Toyota 4Runner Comments
Do you think this addition of LED high beams across the board is valuable and beneficial? Will this impact what trim level Toyota 4Runner you buy next?
Also, how do you feel about Electric Lime Metallic? Is this of interest to you?
Personally, I think it looks so much better in person than the press photos Toyota recently released. Electric Lime is bold and flashy, but it still somehow manages to pull a person right in.
Thanks for reading everyone. See you next story when I discuss the new 2022 Tundra iForce Max engine teased this week.
