Toyota unveils the fifth-generation model at a September 24 news conference
Toyota announced today that it will unveil the fifth-generation 4Runner at the Texas State Fair, during a September 24 news conference. The State Fair in Dallas runs from September 25 through October 18. Texas is Toyota’s biggest full-sized truck market. The automaker’s San Antonio assembly plant produces the full-sized Tundra.
The 4Runner is Toyota’s volume-leading off-road sport-utility vehicle. The original model entered dealer showrooms for the 1985 model year. The current version has been on the road since 2003. The 4Runner is available with a choice of V6 or V8 engines, in two or four-wheel drive configurations.
A two-speed transfer case, downhill assist control and hill start assist on the four-wheel drive truck give the 4Runner the ability to negotiate extreme terrain. A trail edition, introduced for the ’09 model year, adds a locking rear differential, active traction control, Bilstein shocks, special wheels and tires.
