Toyota is sticking to sturdy traditions with its new 2014 4Runner

While the crossover and SUV world transits to front-wheel drive D-segment saloon platforms, Toyota is sticking to sturdy traditions with its new 2014 4Runner (America’s Fortuner) keeping the model body-on-frame and adding refinement while taking nothing away from the car’s off-roading ability.

That’s good news, as the latest 4Runner gains a refreshed exterior with a new front fascia, muscular front grille, smoked headlamps, and wide arches.

The choice remains between 4X2 or 4X4 drivetrains with either part-time or full-time engagement, and power is courtesy of the tried-and-trusted 4.0-litre 270bhp V6 mated to a five-speed automatic.
