The 2013 Toyota 4Runner is an old-school SUV that puts off-roading above comfort. Thanks to a body-on-frame construction, the 4Runner excels at being a rugged mode of transportation. If you’re looking to get dirty or go on an adventure, the 4Runner is an ideal companion. Other SUVs, however, are more spacious, comfortable and tech-forward.
The 2013 Toyota 4Runner is a midsize SUV that seats five. Toyota offers the SUV in three trims: SR5, Trail and Limited. Under the hood is a V6 that’s paired with an automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is available.
The 4Runner is unchanged for 2013.
Just like the original 4Runner, the 2013 model has a boxy shape. The chunky front-end design, flared fenders and large grille give it a burly look. The upright front windshield provides a clear view of what lies ahead. A lengthy roofline and upright rear end are among the other bespoke design elements.
The 4Runner comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, auto on/off headlights, fog lights, a black utility roof rack, color front and rear bumpers, heated mirrors with puddle lights and skid plates. A moonroof is optional.
On the inside, the 4Runner has a design that’s functional, yet inviting. The clear instrument cluster and large buttons are simply designed. The utilitarian dashboard and center console match the rugged character of the 4Runner. The seats are supportive and comfortable, providing a good amount of support for off-roading. Material quality is on par with what competitors offer. The 4Runner can hold an impressive amount of cargo. Storage space behind the second row measures 47.2 cubic feet. With the rear seats folded, the 4Runner offers 89.7 cubic feet of space.
Standard features include air conditioning, fabric-trimmed front seats, a fabric-trimmed 40/20/40 second-row seat, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, power windows, a power rear liftgate window, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and power door locks. Optional equipment includes leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, a leather-trimmed 40/20/40 second-row seat, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and a sliding rear cargo deck.
The 4Runner comes with a 4.0-liter V6 engine that produces 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. That’s paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and a pair of four-wheel-drive systems are available.
Properly equipped, the 4Runner can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Fuel economy isn’t one of the 4Runner’s strong suits, though, as it’s rated to get up to 17/22 mpg city/highway.
When it comes to off-roading, the 4Runner is one of the best. The V6 engine doesn’t have any trouble getting the SUV up to highway speeds or over rough terrain. Despite its old-school construction, the SUV is quiet and reasonably smooth on tarmac. When the road gets curvy, the 4Runner has trouble hiding its weight and height, however.
The 4Runner falls behind the competition with its technology features. Standard equipment includes a remote keyless entry system, Bluetooth, an eight-speaker audio system, satellite radio capability, an auxiliary audio jack, a USB port, a multi-information display, push-button start, remote illuminated entry, a rearview camera, a HomeLink garage opener, two 12-volt auxiliary power outlets and rear parking sensors.
Optional features include a 6.1-inch touch screen, advanced voice recognition, a 120-volt power outlet, a 15-speaker JBL audio system, navigation and Toyota’s Entune system.

Great SUV for the money
"Very nice SUV, if you like to drive a truck. It takes getting used to having to consciously put the transmission into 4-wheel drive. If you're looking for smooth and luxurious, this might not be for you. The 4-Runner drives and feels like a truck! Love it!!!"
