The Toyota SUV lineup can be a little confusing, but to simplify things, in terms of price the lineup starts with the C-HR and goes up from there with the RAV4, Venza, Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia, and the top Land Cruiser. The Highlander and the 4Runer are both three-row SUVs, though the 4Runner is available as just a two-row SUV to optimize cargo room. The 4Runner also comes standard with rear-wheel drive but has all-wheel drive available whereas the Highlander has front-wheel drive standard but also has AWD available.

Before we get into the different trim levels of the 2021 4Runner, it’s interesting to look at all the features that come standard no matter what trim level you select. In terms of connectivity, all 4Runner models come with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Alexa, and SiriusXM on an 8-inch touchscreen.
If you want safety features, then here as well you get a lot of standard features by way of Toyota Safety Sense which includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, radar cruise control, automatic high beams, and lane departure alert.
Under the hood, the 4Runner once again comes with a standard powerplant, and it’s an impressive one. This 4.0-liter V6 can output up to 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. By mating it to a 5-speed automatic transmission and encapsulating it all in a body-on-frame construction, the 4Runner can provide 5,000 pounds of standard towing capability.
In terms of trim levels, the 4Runner has nine trim levels in all. The lineup begins with the SR5 and goes up from there with the SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and the top TRD Pro. You may have noticed that there were only six trim levels listed up there. That’s because there are three special editions. You have the Trail Special Edition above the SR5, the Venture Special Edition above the TRD Off-Road Premium, and the Nightshade Special Edition based on the Limited trim. These special edition trims may be harder to find but are worth seeking out.
