As crossover SUVs become ever more popular, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner SUV looks increasingly like a different breed. It isn’t based on a car platform but uses a body-on-frame construction, putting it in that category known as “old school.” But hey, Harvard is an old school. These places have their advantages.
The 4Runner midsize SUV is tough and remarkably capable when tarmac gives way to tougher terrain. Ford Explorer? Nissan Pathfinder? These are just nice names compared with the 4Runner’s affinity for the wild. It also enjoys Toyota’s virtually bombproof reliability.
The cabin layout in the 2020 4Runner is simple but effective. Buttons and dials are large and easy to use, even when selecting the low-range gearing. The center console has the option of a 120-volt outlet and now includes an 8-inch touch screen for the multimedia system that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the first time. It also sports a new instrument panel that’s more easily visible.
The power-adjustable front seats are comfortable and supportive, fine for longer trips, while the reclining 2nd-row seats split and fold in a 40/20/40 configuration for some passenger/cargo versatility. Folding them flat opens up a load area of almost 90 cubic feet. The SR5 trim level offers a 3rd-row seat, that’s kid-friendly now that they’ve included two USB ports in the second row.
The Verdict: Excellent resale value. Great for adventures. 5,000-pound towing capacity.
