Even though many expected a ground-up redesign for 2023, the Japanese automaker did not deliver. It’s also understandable given that the Tacoma and Hilux haven’t moved to the TNGA-F platform of the all-new Tundra.

Dating back to August 2009 for the 2010 model year, the fifth-generation 4Runner is entering 2023 with a few improvements and a special edition that numbers 4,040 units. Offered exclusively with four-wheel drive, the 40th Anniversary can be specified in three colors: the pictured Midnight Black Metallic, White, and Barcelona Red Metallic. Based on the SR5 Premium, this fellow stands out in the crowd with 17-inch bronze wheels.

A body-color heritage front grille, heritage graphics, and tailgate badge also need to be mentioned, along with a passenger-side dash badge, bronze stitching on the shift knob and seats, anniversary floor mats, anniversary logos on the SofTex-wrapped headrests, as well as the power moonroof.

Moving on to the rest of the lineup, the 2023 Toyota 4Runner gains Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert completely as standard. Every single trim level rocks LED high beams. With room for up to seven people, the family-oriented overlander further boasts the Toyota Safety Sense-P suite of driver-assist technologies that include the Sway Warning System.

Backed up by 36 months of basic new-vehicle warranty, the 4Runner soldiers on with a familiar V6 engine that drives the rear wheels or all four through a five-speed automatic transmission. Rear-drive vehicles are equipped with an automatic limited-slip differential, while four-wheel-drive vehicles combine the part-time 4WD system with Active Traction Control, an electronic nanny that maintains traction whenever it senses any wheel slippage.

Capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds (2,268 kilograms), the 4.0L V6-engined 4Runner belts out 270 ponies and 278 pound-feet (377 Nm).
