According to Polk, 90 percent of 4Runners sold over the past decade are still on the road today, a statistic that clearly illustrates the SUV's record of providing long-term reliability. Along with this, shoppers can also count on the 4Runner to retain value throughout the years, which is why Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com placed the new, redesigned 2014 model on their "Best Resale Value Awards: Top Ten Cars" list.
While all of this is impressive, a reputation for reliability and value alone doesn't move units. So, what is the appeal of the 4Runner, you ask? Well, it lies in what the SUV can accomplish on and especially off road. Many of its competitors have transitioned into using car-based platforms, like the Ford Explorer and Nissan Pathfinder, while the 4Runner continues to utilize a heavy-duty, truck-like body-on-frame foundation that makes it an excellent off-road machine. KBB.com's 2014 Toyota 4Runner review even calls it "a rugged, mid-size sport-utility vehicle that finds purpose where the pavement ends."
Local shoppers can find the 2014 Toyota 4Runner for sale in Phoenix at Camelback Toyota. Three trim levels are available including the SR5, Trail and Limited, and this year the lineup has received a bold exterior refresh. The fascia is now fronted by a larger grille, vertical air intakes, new LED projector beam headlights that are narrower in size than the previous halogen lamps, and other design elements that give the SUV a more aggressive look.
Inside, SR5 trims come with standout premium features like a rearview camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel and attractive new door trim. Trail models offer added off-road capability with crawl control and an optional specially tuned suspension system. For luxury-minded shoppers, the Limited remains an ideal pick with features like heated/ventilated front seats and a new-for-2014 15-speaker audio system with navigation. SR5 and Limited models also continue to offer an optional 50/50-split third row, which bumps seating capacity up to seven. And for tech junkies, the 4Runner bundles in Toyota's Entune system, which comes with real-time weather, traffic and fuel prices, as well as car-connected smartphone apps like Pandora, Yelp, Bing, MovieTickets.com, Facebook Places and much more.
