The Toyota 4Runner has been around for nearly four decades, and as such it's about time that they are given some special treatment. To celebrate this landmark reached by one of America’s favorite cars (and demand!), a new model will be introduced to our shores: The 2023 Special Edition 40th Anniversary version! At just 4000 units made available across all fifty states – or rather four thousand outta forty-if, you want them bad enough--this edition promises to offer avid drivers everything needed in order to take on any terrain without worry while still being able to look good doing so with its sleek lines which make driving really extraordinary. The new model year will bring us another set of great upgrades like increased safety features and free roof rack accessories as well.
There are three colors for this special edition: White, Midnight Black Metallic, and Barcelona Red. To set it apart from the rest of its kind 17" alloy wheels in bronze join a color-matched Toyota heritage grille with their 40th-anniversary badge on the tailgate; while a graphics package was created especially to honor those early off-road racers who paved the way towards success - yellow-orange or red will be used tastefully as homage!
A cabin celebration is expected with exclusive badges, a bronze-colored shift knob and seat stitching. 40th Anniversary logos can be found on all of the seats for an even more special experience! A power moonroof comes standard as well so you'll never have to worry about getting stuck in traffic again while traveling down south during rush hour - unless it's dark outside which makes driving extremely difficult anyway.
Unfortunately, there's no bump in power from the standard 270-horsepower 4.0L V6 and five-speed automatic transmission, maintaining today’s 5k lbs towing capacity.
Toyota has not announced when the 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition will be made available to the public, nor did it provide information on pricing for this model. However, we do know that Toyota tends to price gouge their customers fairly quickly which makes us wonder if they'll follow suit with other models in order to maintain popularity and make a profit at any cost? For reference, the 2022 SR5 Premium trim starts around $41K but as an anniversary edition comes equipped with some extra goodies expect its price tag may be closer to $44.800 dollars without overcoming what would probably end up being over 45 thousand bucks.
The Toyota 4Runner is getting even more advanced for the next model year! In addition to being offered in an exclusive color, you'll be able to enjoy blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert with all trims. Other features that are now standard include a collision-avoidance system which includes pedestrian detection as well automatic LED high beams alongside sway warning alerts when drivers take their eyes off of what's ahead or beside them respectively (this last one sounds important). The safety sense suite also includes automatic radar cruise control so your vehicle can keep the pace set by police cars. There is no way to know for sure how these changes will affect prices until they happen.
