Find out what sets the various trims for the Toyota 4Runner apart so you have a better idea of which one will be right for you. While there are four main trims, both the SR5 and Trail are subdivided into a base version and a Premium version. Keep in mind that the 4Runner comes standard with two rows of seats, but you can add a third row to the SR5 or Limited.
Toyota 4Runner SR5
The 2016 Toyota 4Runner SR5 is the base trim level, and it appears ready for anything. The exterior features mud guards, 17-inch alloy wheels, a tow hitch, skid plates, fog lights, rear privacy glass, a deicer for the windshield wiper, heated exterior mirrors, keyless entry, LED taillights, a window for the power liftgate, and roof rails. For added capabilities, it also has both hill-descent control and hill-start assist. Inside, everyone will be comfortable thanks to the air conditioning system with vents in the second row, the leather on the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, the 40/20/20 rear seats that fold and recline, and the 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar.
Other interior features on the SR5 trim include cruise control, Bluetooth, connected navigation via Scout GPS Link, eight speakers, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, HD radio, satellite radio, a USB interface, an auxiliary audio jack, voice controls, and a CD player.
The SR5 Premium sub-trim makes a few important additions, including upgrading Entune to the version with Integrated Navigation and the App Suite. This sub-trim also gets an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power adjustment for the front passenger, heated front seats, leatherette upholstery, a sunroof, and upgraded mirrors.
Toyota 4Runner Trail
The Toyota 4Runner Trail trim is only available with 4-wheel drive. It builds on the SR5 trim but has unique wheels. It also adds crawl control, a locking rear differential, and selectable terrain modes to help you go off road and a hood scoop for style. The Trail Premium has the same additions as the SR5 Premium.
Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro
For the ultimate off-roading model, pick the 4Runner TRD Pro. It builds on the Trail Premium, but it has special off-road tires on matte-black wheels, an aluminum skid plate in front with TRD stamping, automatic headlights, an increased ride height, upgraded front springs, and Bilstein shocks. There are also aesthetic upgrades, including a special black front grille.
Toyota 4Runner Limited
The top-of-the-line 4Runner has most features of the Trail Premium except the off-roading ones. It stands out with 20-inch alloy wheels, adaptive roll-reducing dampers, automatic headlights, parking sensors, keyless ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, Safety Connect, and 15 speakers of JBL audio.
