2022 Toyota 4Runner Trim Levels and Standard Features

by Anne-Marie

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner is one of the few conventional truck-based SUVs still in production today, it’s big, boxy, and designed for off-road driving. Certain family haulers have high ride heights and tall roofs, and some crossovers even have plastic body panels or knobby tires. A reliable SUV, however, is unparalleled in capability.

The 4Runner can venture off the beaten path thanks to its rugged underpinnings, high ground clearance, and available four-wheel drive with low-range gearing. Do you want to go one step further? Toyota’s sophisticated suspension system known as KDSS and additional features like a locking rear differential on the TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro trims give these vehicles even more capability on rocky terrain.

New For The 2022 Toyota 4Runner

The Toyota 4Runner is a pillar of the Toyota lineup for almost 40 years and has established itself as the capable SUV that is equally at home on paved roads and off-road. The TRD Sport, a road-tuned model that joins the trail-focused TRD Off-Road and TRD Pro models for 2022, broadens the 4Runner lineup. Additionally, the 4Runner line of 2022 adds new standard features to its lineup of safety technology.

Trim Levels

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner has 8 trim levels. The midsize Toyota 4Runner offers the SR5, TRD Sport, Trail Special Edition, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro.

Engine And Powertrain

All have a 4.0-liter V6 engine with a five-speed automatic transmission and 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. There are rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive options for the SR5, Trail Special Edition, SR5 Premium, TRD Sport, and Limited trims. Other 4Runners have standard 4WD. Standard seating accommodates 5 passengers; third-row seating for 7  passengers is optional on some trim levels.

Which 2022 Toyota 4Runner To Buy

The Trail Special Edition is a great place to start if you are not too serious about playing in the dirt. This trim, which is available in rear- or four-wheel drive, includes a tough roof rack, cool-looking dark gray wheels, and a portable cooler for day trips. If you need serious trail-conquering capability, opt for the TRD Off-Road or TRD Pro. If you like the 4Runner but don’t want to go off-road, I recommend the SR5 Premium with its simulated leather interior, infotainment with navigation, and universal garage door opener.
