The forthcoming 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro is getting some serious updates. For 2021, this SUV gets a new color, wheels, and updated Fox shocks. Also, many aesthetics changes are evident, and 4Runner TRD Pro finally features standard LED headlights.
Like the regular model, the new one will also use the same powertrain. Under the hood is a potent 4.0-liter V-6 engine that can produce 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque.
Will the 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Be Redesigned?
The answer is yes. The new 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro will be much better than before. Generally, the manufacturer made some changes with small, visually impact. Along with the bluish-green and grey exterior color, the 2021 4Runner TRD Pro will also get Lunar Rock color.
At the side, the wheels are looking stronger and more rigid using Nitto Terra Grappler tires. For bumping roads, Pros gets updated 2.5-inch Fox internal-bypass shocks. Besides that, TRD features tuned springs, which give a few inches of lift in the front. The similar springs we saw on the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave. On the front, this SUV comes with a familiar grille and standard LED headlights. In addition, trims like Limited, Nightshade, Trail, and TRD Pro comes with LED high-beams with standard LED fog lights.
Interior Looks More Sporty
The new 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro gets a more sporty look than the regular model. Toyota added plenty of upscale materials and badged this SUV with a TRD Pro logo.
The fabric-trimmed front seats are more comfortable, and TRD Pro offers an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support. Multi-Information Display (MID) is on the center, giving information about outside temperature, clock, average fuel economy, and distance. Other features include dual-zone automatic climate control with air filter and second-row vents, backup camera with projected path, Leather-trimmed tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and more.
