This year, for the 2023 model year, the Toyota 4Runner turns 40. That’s a pretty big deal in the automotive industry, though it might not seem like it by looking at the rest of the Toyota lineup. Toyota is an outlier, as quite a few of its nameplates have been around for decades. Many other automakers don’t have nearly as many models that celebrate anniversaries that high, so we’re pretty proud of the 4Runner. We cannot wait for the newest iteration of the 4Runner to arrive here in Fort Scott, Kansas, which will even be available in a special 40th anniversary model.
Well for starters, the 40th Anniversary Edition is new for the 2023 model year. That’s obviously the biggest change this year, but we’ll touch on that more to the right. Aside from that, Toyota didn’t feel the need to make too many changes this year after several updates over the past few years. So, all that they changed was this year’s exclusive TRD Pro exterior color, which is Solar Octane, a unique orange color.
The special 40th Anniversary Special Edition 4Runner will only be available on 4WD models and only in three exterior color options – White, Midnight Black Metallic and Barcelona Red Metallic. 4,040 units will be built, with each including a host of unique design cues, such as the heritage graphics package, 17” bronze-colored alloy wheels, body-color TOYOTA heritage grille and bronze exterior tailgate badging.
Each and every 2023 Toyota 4Runner, regardless of trim level, edition or package, will come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense-P package, which includes the automaker’s Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System, Automatic High Beams and High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. They also feature Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert!
