Toyota 4Runner Capability Features

Hauling Capabilities

Powered by a conventional V-6 gasoline engine, the 2023 Toyota 4Runner tows 5,000 gross pounds per compliance with the SAE J2807 standards. In stark contrast, most 2023 Ford Bronco models have a towing limit of only 3,500 net lb. Even if you get the most powerful engine on Ford’s lineup, you still can’t beat the Toyota trim’s trailering capability. Every 4Runner model is equipped with a hitch receiver and wiring harness for universal connections with a wide range of trailers. In terms of off-road skills, this Toyota SUV offers the Crawl Control for conquering a wide range of trails. This mechanical technology modulates the throttle system for optimum performance by featuring up to five selectable settings. Similarly, the Multi-Terrain Select technology has several selectable settings for off-road handling. Thanks to Trail Control and several other innovative mechanical technologies, the 2023 Bronco also has excellent off-road prowess.

Toyota 4Runner Interior Features

Interior Features

Covered in perforated leather, the 2023 Toyota 4Runner’s front seats are available with several levels of ventilation and heating. You won’t find any cooling features for the 2023 Ford Bronco’s front seats, which are trimmed in leather or vinyl. Both models offer heating functionality for the steering wheel. A dual-zone climate control system is another premium amenity inside these vehicles. If you buy the 4Runner with two rows, you can haul up to 89.7 cubic feet of cargo. When the second-row seats are folded, the maximum cargo capacity is 47.2 cubic feet. The three-row configuration has slightly less cargo space. However, the 2023 Bronco doesn’t even come close to matching the cargo capacity of the 4Runner. Overall, the 4Runner’s interior layout gives families more versatility and utility. For instance, the third-row seats could be folded flat. Reclining is available for the car’s second-row seats, which also have a flat-folding design. Additionally, a sliding deck and a 120-V power outlet are available for the spacious cargo area.

4Runner Exterior Features

Exterior Design

Toyota offers an awesome assortment of premium paint options for the 2023 4Runner, such as the eye-popping Barcelona Red and cool Nautical Blue. Some other notable color choices for this SUV include Lime Rush and Classic Silver. The 40th Anniversary Special Edition is exclusively available with unique stripes for contrasting appeal. Some attractive color options for the 2023 Bronco include Eruption Green and Area 51. Both SUVs have LED fog lamps for safe and confident driving in adverse weather. Heated side mirrors with power adjustments are also available on both vehicles. A power-adjustable liftgate and running boards give the Toyota 4Runner an extra edge in overall utility.
