The new 2017 Toyota 4Runner will be launched sometime in the not too distant future. Being one of the better SUVs from Toyota we expect it to make a real statement when it is ultimately released into the market. At present the demand for SUVs is high and though there is stiff competition in this segment, the new 4Runner Concept should be able to deal with it. Although, Toyota has not as yet sold the 2016 version, it does plan to introduce the 2017 model pretty soon.
Not much information is available about the kind of engine that will be placed under the hood of the new 2017 Toyota 4Runner. But, there are rumors about the bodywork of the 4Runner that suggest that the exteriors will undergo considerable redesign changes.
2017 Toyota 4Runner Exterior and Interior
The changes will help to refresh this model and make it look more appealing. The market will definitely accept whatever changes Toyota plans to make to the new 4Runner. The company will probably change the bodywork but even so the 4Runner will still look rather static. Changes will also be made to the bumpers in the front as well as at the back. Side-skirts will also be offered while the headlights and the taillights will also undergo some redesign changes. The 2017 Toyota 4Runner will have a lighter body, which will help to improve the handling of the vehicle as well as its fuel economy.
It is not just the exteriors that will undergo some changes, because the interiors will also be different than before. The cabin will get a few minor updates to make it look a lot fresher than earlier models. Overall, the interiors will be very modern and classy. We also think that Toyota will also add some more advanced technological features to the cabin to make things more convenient. For example, the company will introduce a 7-inch touchscreen enabled infotainment system and it will also offer better navigational features as well as a nice 8-speaker audio system.
2017 Toyota 4Runner Engine Specs
Under the hood, Toyota will probably install a very powerful engine that will produce enough power to propel a powerful Sports Utility Vehicle like the 2017 Toyota 4Runner. Till now, Toyota has not provided any details about what kind of engine it plans to use though one rumor that can be believed suggests that the company will go in for a 4.0-liter V8 engine. We however are of the belief that Toyota will stick with a 4.0-liter V6 engine that is capable of producing 270 horsepower and 250 pound feet of torque. The higher end trims will be offered with other engine options including a diesel 4.0-liter V8 engine that will produce ample power to propel the new 4Runner. The engines will be coupled to a 5-speed automatic gearbox and power will be transferred to all four wheels. The company may also offer an optional front-wheel drive system.
2017 Toyota 4Runner Release Date and Price
Toyota has yet to provide concrete details regarding the exact release date and price of the new 2017 Toyota 4Runner. Till such time as it does release information we can but wait and keep our fingers crossed. However, some people in the know predict that the company will inform us about the price and release date of the 2017 Toyota 4Runner sometime in 2017. It may cost about 34,000 dollars for the base model while the higher end trims will cost approximately 40,000 dollars and more.
