The 2000 Toyota 4Runner is a midsize four-door SUV that seats five people and is available with rear- or four-wheel drive. It’s meant for drivers who want a burly, truck-based SUV for towing and off-road trailblazing – or just its gritty persona.
What Makes It Unique?
The 2000 Toyota 4Runner came midway through the vehicle’s third generation. The truck dates back to the 1984 model year, when the 4Runner was little more than a fully enclosed two-door Toyota pickup truck. It has evolved and been enhanced over the years, getting added comfort and sophistication – not to mention an extra pair of doors – but the 2000 edition stayed true to its roots as a rugged off-road adventurer.
4Runner vs. Other Toyotas
In terms of size and capability, the 2000 Toyota 4Runner fit between the compact RAV4 and the larger and more luxurious Land Cruiser in Toyota’s SUV lineup.
Toyota 4Runner vs. Competition
While car-based SUVs began to take over the U.S. market, appealing to motorists with their enhanced drivability and improved fuel economy, the 2000 4Runner remained one of the top traditional body-on-frame workhorses money could buy:
Jeep Cherokee: The Cherokee helped launch the SUV craze when it debuted four-door, family-friendly versions; the 2000 still offered two-door variants with 4-cylinder or V6 power.
Nissan Pathfinder: The four-door Pathfinder was still truck-based back in 2000, and while it was adequately rugged, its V6 was not as powerful as some others in the class.
Chevrolet Blazer: Offered in two- and four-door versions, the Blazer was a Chevy stalwart back when truck-based models were still in vogue; it was powered by a strong V6 engine.
Ford Explorer: The best-selling SUV of this era, the Explorer’s wide model line included two- and four-door models with rear- or four-wheel drive and V6 or V8 engines.
Is the 2000 Model Year Right for You?
Changes for 2000
The 2000 Toyota 4Runner carries over nearly unchanged from the 1999 version. That model got a refresh that gave the vehicle a recast front-end treatment, new wheels and an improved four-wheel-drive system on the Limited trim.
2000 Toyota 4Runner vs. Older 4Runners
This 4Runner generation debuted for 1996 and continued with only incremental changes through the 2002 model year, so there should be a large inventory out there from which to choose, with varying ages, mileage and prices.

User Reviews for 2000 Toyota 4Runner
by Wendy on May 13, 2020
I love it
"Toyota lives up to the reputation. I have enjoyed 20 years in my 4Runner. 297k and going strong. Just complete the recommended services, oil changes and you are good to go. Runs forever! I get asked at every auto shop if I want to sell it."
It’s simple but it’s easy to keep clean and nice. Been able to adapt it to new tech while still listening to oldies on the CD player. Have never used the cassette tape deck for cig lighter but how retro is that?
One thing about Toyota after 20 years they like to rust. I put a protectant on the paint at purchase and it’s helped out. Living in Colorado it is rock dinged. This body would be great to convert into a Rock Crawler as it has the extra manual gear shift. Otherwise she really needs a paint job! Rockies Purple?
Dang, this baby hauls up the Vail and Eisenhower Pass of I-70 like no business. Keep really good AT tires on it for winter snow. Good also for everyday driver. Would put on lift kit if you want to rock crawl. Spent a lot of time on dirt roads no prob.
Safety locks for back seats and controlled windows so your kids and pets can’t fall out or throw out anything. Very roomy back seats and they individually fold down. My dogs love it when both back seats are down.
Holy Cow Yes! $70 to register a year and $500 for insurance a year. No car payment for 20 years this Yota saved me through financial crisis and now COVID! That is why I have never traded up.
