The new 2023 Toyota 4Runner: Taking Toyota reliability off-road

The Toyota 4Runner has been delivering the goods both on-road and off for a long time. Throughout its long history, the 4Runner has been blazing new trails and coming through with that legendary Toyota reliability. The new 4Runner comes with frame-based construction, rugged four-wheel drive and proven off-road capability. It rolls with a big V6 engine and a five-speed automatic transmission, allowing the new 4Runner to continue earning high ratings for pure value. Here's a look at the new Toyota 4Runner that's available right now at Gullo Toyota of Conroe in Conroe TX.

What's new for 2023?

2023 happens to be the 40th anniversary of the 4Runner. Toyota is celebrating by launching a special edition based on the entry-level SR5 model that will have a limited production run of just 4040 vehicles. The 2023 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition will be available in red, white or black paint and comes with tri-colored graphics on both the body sides and the grille. Bronze 17-inch wheels are another attractive part of the package. Inside the cabin, the bronze theme is repeated in stitching on the leatherette seats as well as the shift knob. Also new for 2023 are standard blind-spot monitoring and a rear cross-traffic alert system on every model.

Trim levels

For 2023, the new Toyota 4Runner offers buyers from The Woodlands and Spring, TX a total of six trims to choose from:

  • SR5
  • TRD Sport
  • TRD Off Road
  • 40th Anniversary Special Edition
  • TRD Pro

The highest-level, lifted TRD Pro is the most capable of all the trims. For those who want a more affordable option, the 4Runner TRD Off-Road has a lot to offer. Four-wheel drive comes standard in this trim and so does an electronically locking rear differential to help you get maximum traction in muddy or slippery conditions. The TRD Off-Road models comes with selectable drive modes that can adjust the powertrain's performance to adapt to a variety of driving conditions.

Engines and performance

Every new Toyota 4Runner comes with a 4.0-liter V6 engine that can generate 270 horsepower. You can select rear-wheel drive, full- or part-time four-wheel drive systems. The new 4Runner can travel from zero to 60 in 7.7 seconds. A test drive will show you that the Toyota 4Runner feels more composed on pavement than its archrival, the Jeep Wrangler. There's quite a bit of ground clearance underneath and the body-on-frame construction is supported with a soft suspension that absorbs the hits from a variety of surfaces.

Fuel economy

The new Toyota 4Runner can give you up to 16 MPG in the city and 19 MPG on highways around Huntsville TX.

Interior comfort and cargo

The Toyota 4Runner for 2023 gives you a versatile cargo area and several deep cubbies in the front row to make this SUV as flexible as it is capable when you're crawling over rocks. The two-row versions have an optional pull-out cargo deck to help make loading and unloading heavier items easier. The deck can also serve as a tailgate to give you additional seating. The standard two-row Toyota 4Runner gives you 47.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 89.7 cubic feet when you fold down the second row.


The 2023 4Runner comes with a standard 8-inch touch screen, smartphone connectivity, voice recognition, satellite radio, proximity keyless entry and an 8-speaker stereo. Buyers can upgrade to an automatically-dimming rear view mirror, a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a premium JBL stereo with 15 speakers.

The 2023 Toyota 4Runner comes with a forward collision warning system, pedestrian detection, a lane departure warning system, blind-spot monitoring, a rear view camera and rear cross-traffic alert.
