The year was 1984. Ronald Regan was in the White House. Ghostbusters was the number one grossing film. Madonna performed “Like a Virgin” during the MTV Video Music Awards and forever changed her career. The band the Red Hot Chili Peppers debuted their first single “Real Men Don’t Kill Coyotes” (for the record, I just checked this song out and wow they have greatly improved). And 30 years ago Toyota released its iconic SUV, the 4Runner.
The 4Runner’s design has changed a lot over the years. Toyota has kept the rugged look with lots of updates. So yes this truck has been upgraded over the years but it is still very much trail ready. The 4Runner is built on the same platform as the FJ Cruiser. Because of its truck like build is preforms supremely off road. It is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 that has 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. It comes in three different trims: the SR5, the Trail, and the Limited. Trail only comes with four wheel drive while the other two offer two wheel drive.
The interior is large and spacious. Third row seating is available but does not come standard. Over 90 cubic feet of storage is available when you fold the seats down. So not only can you haul a lot of people, you can also haul their stuff. The limited has a JBL audio speaker system. This allows your music accessed through the Entune system to be heard at through speakers that you usually have to buy and install after market. Bluetooth is available along with navigation.
So celebrate 30 years with 4Runner and stop by your Missouri Toyota Cars dealer today. To sweeten the deal, ask your sales team about special deals going on in honor of the birthday car.
