It has not been confirmed yet, but the year 2019 might bring us the new model coming from Toyota. According to the information our team has got, it will be the 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro that has been well-known for its design and off-road capabilities. This time, Toyota will pay more attention to efficiency and generally better performance.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro, this SUV will appear as a four-door vehicle with excellent performance and off-road abilities. After all, the TRD Pro represents the most powerful trim when it comes to this model. When we talk about the platform, there is a chance that the new 4Runner will abandon the previous one based on the FJ Cruiser and start using the one seen on the new Tacoma. A chassis like that uses a high strength steel in its body construction. Besides the strong steel, the new 4Runner TRD Pro will employ lightweight materials such as aluminum in order to reduce the weight. This will significantly improve the acceleration, fuel consumption and total performance, so this model will be a great choice for both – an on-road use and off-road adventures. When it comes to exterior design, the new 4Runner will retain its powerful and impressive look, but also get more elegant features. This model has once again been compared to the Tacoma, especially in terms of front fascia. The front part of this SUV will probably give up on the previous well-known styling and get a redesigned grille and a new set of LED headlights. The TRD Pro will probably be standing on larger 18-inch wheels and off-road tires.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro can also be seen as having lots of similarities with the Tacoma. Being the next-generation SUV, the new TRD Pro will offer modern, comfortable and well-equipped cabin. It will use leather and other high-quality materials to cover the seats and furnish the interior. In the upgraded center console, you can probably expect a 6.1-inch touch screen with the Toyota’s latest infotainment system and options such as navigation, Wi-Fi hot spot and other types of connectivity, automatic control and audio system. Numerous safety systems and driver assist features will also be included.
When it comes to engine of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro, it seems that the current 4.0-liter V6 will become history and be replaced with a new and smaller 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6. Such an engine should be able to deliver 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to transmission, it will probably be mated to a five-speed automatic that can be shifted to manual.
