We love a good crossover, but there is still something to be said for a classic, brute-force SUV that can climb over the toughest terrain when you’re looking to go off on a wilderness adventure. Enter the 2020 Toyota 4Runner in St. Louis, MO. Built on the classic body-on-frame SUV style, the 4Runner boasts ample power and capability for your everyday needs and weekend excursions. It is available in eight different trims: SR5, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Venture Special Edition, Limited, Nightshade Edition, and TRD Pro. Every 4Runner is equipped with a mighty 4.0-liter V6 engine that cranks out 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. You can fit as much as 89.7 cubic feet of cargo behind the front seats (88.8 cubic feet with a slide deck), and the 4Runner can also tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, which is perfect for weekend journeys to your favorite getaway.
2020 Toyota 4Runner connectivity and safety features
While the 2020 Toyota 4Runner caters to drivers with its durability, high-quality interior, and standard power rear glass window, these days it is also important to stay connected and remain safe behind the wheel. You can take advantage of the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ functionality and connect your compatible smartphone to the 4Runner and use select applications, including hands-free calling and messaging. Speaking of smartphones, any passengers sitting in the back will be able to charge their devices just like anyone sitting in the front thanks to the rear USB ports. You can also use the available Wi-Fi Connect service and allow up to five devices to be connected to the internet at once. If you want to keep tabs on the 4Runner while you’re away, the available Remote Connect lets you access certain statistics of the vehicle, as well as the ability to lock and unlock the doors, from your chosen smart device.
Safety is also key, and that’s why the 2020 4Runner comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), which includes such driver-assist technology as the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. You’ll also have a standard backup camera to help you while in reverse. While these safety features are not replacements for good driving habits, they’re meant to give you an extra sense of confidence behind the wheel.
