2011 Toyota 4Runner: Four-Cylinder Engine Dropped, Again

April 25th, 2010

Toyota has revealed pricing and information for the 2011 4Runner. While the model, which was completely renovated in 2010, carries in 2011 with no significant changes, notably absent from the lineup, the base four-cylinder model.

Four-cylinder 4Runner were very rare, and it is possible Toyota was a bit embarrassed by the performance of the model. The automaker had not made 4Runner four-cylinder available in the press fleet, and they were almost impossible to find in the showroom. In fact, Toyota told us last year on the introduction of the model, which is expected four-cylinder models only five percent of 2010 sales 4Runner, and it would be made available mainly in Southern states.

The four-cylinder Toyota 4Runner did not do much better on gas, with EPA ratings of 18 mpg city, 23 highway, alongside an assessment of 17/23 (or 17/22) for the V-6. And the model could tow only 2,000 pounds versus 5000 pounds for the other models.

Economical four-cylinder engines were the norm for the 4Runner in the 1980s, and while V-6 upgrades became more popular in the 1990s, Toyota offers a four completely by the beginning of the last decade, then left him for lack of important. In 2003, the automaker introduced a V-8, but this time it is likely that the lineup will stay all-V-6.

Base prices for the 2011 Toyota 4Runner, which is otherwise unchanged (so check out our review for the 2010 Toyota 4Runner) have not changed much either. They range for 2011 of $ 29,525 for the base 4Runner SR5 2WD to $ 39,685 for the 4Runner Limited 4WD not count Toyota’s $ 810 destination charges. But that actually means that the entry-level 4Runner almost $ 2,000 more expensive, as four-cylinder model to $ 27,500 last year began.

The 2011 4Runner reaches showrooms in September.
