As before, due to its excellent off-road performance, the new 4Runner and 4Runner TRD Pro, will attract true lovers of off-road adventures.
Beginning of sales should not be expected before the second half of 2017. In any case, the current model meets the extremely positive reviews. Excellent reviews and pleasure, arriving from neutral and independent experts and fans of this kind of vehicle, but also of the owners of these vehicles. The current Toyota 4Runner SUV is present on the market since 2009 and achieved excellent sales results.

2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Changes
As we mentioned, off-road characteristics and specific vehicle design, make this model with what is, and what represents, for many years. Just for this reason, the company has a complex task ahead of them when it comes to the amount of change that will be represented at the new generation of models.
In addition to the new 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro, the company will continue to offer and its Tundra and Tacoma pickup models with the same equipment package. Of course, that’s what we already used. All three models are expected the same treatment embellishment and improvement. Specifically, these models from TRD Pro family will receive a modified design of the front grille, a new form of front and rear light units and improve aerodynamics. With these changes, there are indications and expansion, or change the palette of colors for the exterior of the new generation models.
Changes to the look of the new generation models are quite certain. However, a revolution in design should not be expected. In fact, every major change that would affect on 4Runner is not what this is. It should be expected that the 2018 model is the same size as the current model. Also, information indicating the possibility that the new model gets the third row of seats, we need to understand too seriously. However, 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro may have similarities with the FJ Cruiser model. However, the more realistic is that the new model, or a new generation of models, represent only an improved and modernized version of what we were already well known.
Specs and Price
Under the hood, the standard version of the current model is 4.0-liter V6 engine. This is one of the most -no-efficient powertrains in the class, with 17 city/21 hwy MPG. However, what makes the 4Runner popular is its strength and exceptional off-road capability. This engine provides the vehicle just that.
Some rumors suggest the possibility of supply of the new power unit with the new generation models. As mentioned the possibility of atmospheric 3.5-liter V6 engine with 300 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. The new power unit caused the installation to a different gear. This would mean that under the current 5-speed manual transmission was replaced with a new one.
How would the new powertrain influenced the improvement of the standard model, the same would be with the 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro version of the model. Opinions are divided. On one side are those who do not have anything against that 2018 model is offered with the same powertrain. Opposite them are those who are of the opinion that the new drive train significantly improve future generation model. They believe that the 2018 4Runner TRD Pro was far more advanced and more efficient with a new power unit.
As it is considered that the price of the standard version of the next generation model will remain at the level of prices of the current model, it is valid the opinion of the price at which will be sold in 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro.
