2022 Toyota 4Runner for Sale in Smithfield, RI
Off-road enthusiasts should be thrilled with the arrival of the 2022 Toyota 4Runner. This truck-based, body-on-frame SUV is as rugged as they come; in fact, they hardly make beasts like this anymore, which is why the 4Runner remains such a figurehead in the auto industry. While it looks pretty much the same as it did a decade ago, that’s likely because its signature boxy style and height create a sturdy appearance that attracts hardy trailblazers. Couple that with its potent V6, and you’ve got yourself one serious all-terrain monster. Speaking of which, model year 2022 introduces an all-new TRD Sport trim level, which for a long time now has been exclusive to the Toyota Tacoma pickup. Plus, every ’22 Tacoma trim now has standard LED headlights, fog lights, and rear occupant alert, while the TRD Pro adds a standard multi-terrain monitor and an exclusive Lime Rush paint color, and the Limited shows off a panoramic moonroof.
Trims and Mechanical Specs
The 4Runner is a full-sized, old-school SUV offered in eight trim levels: SR5, TRD Sport, Trail Special Edition, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro. Each gets a 4.0-liter V6 engine that produces 270 hp and 278 lb.-ft. of torque and works with a five-speed automatic transmission. Most trims come with standard front-wheel drive (FWD), but the TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, and TRD Pro are made exclusively with the four-wheel drivetrain that’s optional on the other trims. All trims can tow up to 5,000 pounds with the integrated hitch and wiring harness with 4- and 7-pin connectors.
Standard Equipment and Options
The base SR5’s exterior displays LED lights (headlights, high beams, fog lights, and taillights), engine and front suspension skid plates, 17-inch wheels, heated side mirrors, roof rails, a windshield wiper de-icer, front and rear mudguards, a power liftgate, rear privacy glass, and keyless entry. The interior includes a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, push-button ignition, a rearview monitor with projected path guidance, an overhead console with a sunglasses holder, and a 40/20/40 split-reclining and fold-flat second-row seat. You can plug in as needed with two 12-volt DC power outlets (one up front and one in the cargo area), one cargo area 120-volt AC power outlet, and four USB ports. The Trail Special Edition swaps in black seats with tan contrast stitching and black 17-inch wheels and adds a Yakima LoadWarrior cargo basket, a sliding rear cargo deck with an underfloor storage compartment, a 40-quart cargo area accessory cooler with tie-down straps, and all-weather floor liners.
The SR5 Premium doesn’t get the Trail Special Edition’s contents, but it does add turn-signal indicators to the side mirrors, SofTex upholstery, heated front seats, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, an accessory cargo net, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink universal garage door opener. The Limited receives an array of luxurious features, like an enhanced sport-tuned suspension, auto on/off headlights, 20-inch wheels, chrome exterior elements, a power tilt-and-slide moonroof with a sunshade, dual-zone automatic climate control, perforated leather seats, ventilated front seats, position memory for the driver’s seat, and a surround-view camera system. The SR5, SR5 Premium, and Limited are eligible for a 50/50 split fold-flat third-row seat if you need to accommodate extra passengers. Also, some of the aforementioned high-end features are optional on the lower trims.
The TRD Sport is equipped similarly to the SR5 (minus the front and rear mud guards), but it also gets the sport-tuned suspension, 20-inch wheels, a TRD-specific hood scoop, SofTex upholstery, a power front passenger’s seat, and trim-exclusive carpeted floor mats and shift knob. The TRD Off-Road drops the sport suspension, hood scoop, 20-inch wheels, SofTex upholstery, and power passenger’s seat, but it reinstalls the mud guards and gets standard 4WD, 17-inch wheels, a locking differential, active traction control, Multi-Terrain Select, Crawl Control, a transfer case skid plate, and unique badging and floor mats.
The TRD Off-Road Premium blends the SR5 Premium’s features with the TRD Off-Road’s trail-ready elements; red TRD lettering is embroidered on the driver’s and front passenger’s seat headrests. The TRD Pro loses the side mirror turn-signal indicators and roof rails, but it gains a TRD roof rack, high-performance FOX shocks, TRD-tuned front springs, the classic “TOYOTA” front grille, auto on/off headlights, a TRD Pro-stamped front aluminum skid plate, 17-inch matte-black wheels, TRD Pro all-weather floor liners, and some of the features found on the Limited (a power tilt/slide moonroof with a sunshade, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the surround-view monitor).
Safety and Technology
All 2022 4Runners get Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) system of active driver aids (a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert, automatic high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control). Rear occupant alert is issued as well, and the SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road Premium, and TRD Pro come with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The Limited is enhanced with front and rear parking sensors.
The infotainment setup in the SR5, TRD Sport, and Trail Special Edition has an 8-inch touchscreen (it can also be controlled using voice recognition), eight speakers, SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. HD radio is standard starting at the TRD Off-Road level; the SR5 Premium and TRD Off-Road Premium also get integrated navigation and enhanced voice recognition. The Limited and TRD Pro treat their occupants to a standard 15-speaker JBL sound system.
