The 2021 Toyota 4Runner lineup will roll out with some TRD Pro updates and a new Trail Special Edition. It adds a new hue, new LED lights and new equipment.

New for 2020

Lunar Rock joins the TRD Pro lineup for 2021, replacing Army Green in the TRD Pro color palette. You’ll also see new black TRD alloy flow form wheels wrapped in Nitto Terra Grappler tires. Stronger and more rigid, Toyota says these wheels have taken DNA cues from the current style to retain the family look while offering a more aggressive spoke design and deeper dish. The switch to flow form also allows for unique adjustments in other areas to increase ride handling and performance, specifically shock absorber tuning.

Also new for 2021, the 4Runner TRD Pro includes re-tuned 2.5-inch Fox Internal Bypass Shocks to help complement its already off-road-capable hardware. Toyota says this tuning provides an improvement in trail driving isolation and high-speed performance without compromising on-road comfort and steering response. The front Fox shocks are paired with TRD-tuned coil springs, yielding an inch of front lift for improved trail-tackling capability. Out back, the 2.5-inch Fox shocks also feature piggyback-style remote reservoirs to maintain damping performance in the most demanding off-road terrain.

Also, in a first for the 4Runner lineup, all grades will now have LED headlamps as standard equipment. Limited, Nightshade and TRD Pro grades will also receive LED high beams. All grades will also have LED fog lights as standard equipment, with TRD Pro maintaining its current RIGID LED fog lamps in 2021.

2021 Trail Edition

There’s also a special edition on the way. The 2021 4Runner Trail Special Edition is about extra storage, convenience and unique styling. The 4Runner Trail will be based on the SR5 grade model and will comes in either 2WD or 4WD.

In terms of colors, you have a few to choose from: Army Green, Cement, Midnight Black, and Super White. All Trails feature black exterior badging, plus black seating with tan stitching along with standard all-weather floor liners.

The 4Runner Trail rides on gray TRD Off-Road wheels and features a Yakima LoadWarrior rooftop cargo basket on top to haul all your stuff. Plus. inside, you’ll find a custom-made 40-quart cooler and sliding cargo tray.
