QOTD: Ready for the Next Toyota 4Runner?

Vehicle launches happen all the time. But only a select few seem to be highly anticipated.

Any time the Ford Mustang or Chevrolet Corvette gets updated, for example. Or something bread and butter like the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry.

Another example -- the return of the Ford Bronco in 2021.

Now we have the next Toyota 4Runner. We've had at least two teasers already. I know a lot of y'all like the 4Runner -- current or classic -- so are you feeling excited for Toyota to unveil the next-generation version soon?

It's a simple question today, so sound off below.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    The first and second generation had a tailgate that the window rolled into, that feature is mostly forgotten for this hatchback w/ rolling window which started with Gen 3. The J100 and 200 Land cruiser had the split tailgate+hatch which is awesome.

    Looking forward to it... but worried about the sticker. Like the Bronco, anticipation was sky high and the product was solid. Unfortunately the dealers were able to get obscene prices via an add-on sticker to the original MSRP which was reasonable. Next thing you know, Ford jumped on the bandwagon, raised MSRP multiple times and presto a nice Bronco was a 60k plus proposition. Can Toyota avoid a similar fate?

  • FreedMike Very nice.
  • Rna65689660 I am beginning to believe that manufacturers purposely make the top of doors hard so that we stop resting our arms on them. Getting T-boned with your arm there would result in 2 elbows on the same side of your body.

  • Gsc65794753 Volvo parts were rediculously expensive. That's what I remember.
  • Creekrat85 The right to work on your own stuff shall not be abridged. It's common sense. It's unAmerican to be authoritarian. A corporate authoritarian? Isn't that fascism? If the government colludes with a corporate authoritarian to restrict owner's manuals or not to be allowed to show how to make simple repairs or you cannot buy the parts yourself? That's what is wrong. It's benign neglect of the government and it is at the heart of Boeing and their problems, so they let Elon do more of the same over at Tesla ?... The analogy is poor. None of us passengers are going for a wing walk to repair something on a 737 Max. Using John Deere and the farm equipment for the right to work on your own stuff is the better analogy .... Just say no to the corporate authoritarian fascists, wherever they roam...
