6th Gen 4Runner

6th Gen 4Runner Plans?

6th Gen 4Runner Plans (2020, 2021, 2022, oh no!)

6th Gen 4Runner Plans (2020, 2021, 2022, oh no!)

When the 6th Gen 4Runner is out, we will buy one! 6th Gen 4Runner Mods for Days!

I am about to rant…

We will buy a 6th Gen 4Runner and open the blog up to 6th Gen mods. Yeah, that is how serious we are about continuing this effort in bringing something to the table that no one has ever done before.

Whether I sell my 2014 Trail 4Runner and buy a 6th Gen or I sell my girls 2016, we will definitely be buying a 6th, as soon as it comes out.

Only the forum and Trail4R.com provide an actual resource for everything 5th Gen mods and we will for the 6th Gen as well. The problem with the Toyota 4Runner Forums is they lack organization.

Have you ever searched for a mod for your 4Runner on Google and then landed on the forum? Then you scroll through pages and pages of content trying to find the image you are looking for. Then the worst thing happens, it’s a broken image hosted no longer by photo bucket or some third party image hosting website.

I am not 100% knocking the forum but there is a something to be said about a website that is organized and has a good user experience. Broken images and dead links are a bad experience, and it drove me crazy. That is why Trail4R.com was started.

How has someone not created something better yet? Seriously, a forum is all we have for resources on our 4Runner? This is ridiculous. People are rude on the Toyota 4Runner Forum. God forbid someone asks a question about lifting your 4Runner or what the biggest size tire is you can fit in your wheel well. Just send the guy a link to a better thread and close the thread!

We started the website to fill this void in the 4Runner world in providing something organized. We started with the 5th Gen 4Runner and we will continue onto the 6th Gen.

If you have read our story on our about us page, then you know this is not our first experience with 4Runners. I have personally owned 4Runner’s my entire life. Since I was in high-school to today. This body on frame, minivan looking beast is all I know.

So yes. We will keep Trail4Runner.com going until Toyota discontinues the 4Runner or does not build a 6th Gen 4Runner.

The only thing we can hope for in the 6th Gen is as much beauty that was put into the 5th Gen. If the 6th Gen 4Runner comes out and it not the most attractive 4Runner in the world, like the Fortuner, it will be our goal to make it attractive.

6th Gen 4Runner Mods

Like the 5th Gen, we will continue the blog in the direction of mods. Hopefully, we will have one of the first 6th Gen and will be able to provide some initial insight on 6th Gen mods in general.

There are hundreds of mods and 4Runner accessories available for the 5th Gen. Both on major sites like Amazon, the forum, and DIY guides on Trail4Runner.com. We hope to carry over everything from the 5th to the 6th in all facets of inspiration, mods, and general performance.

We are not going into any detail on 6th Gen predictions or 6th Gen rumors. All we are saying is that when the 6th is released, we will buy one and mod the shit out of it!

Do not worry, Trail4Runner.com is not going anywhere.

I know 90% of you don’t care. But for the 10% that do, plan on seeing some 6th gen mods the day it comes out.

I love this site. Like you mentioned other forum sites are unorganized. Athough they contain a huge amount of really good info, its like digging through a parts bin…annoying to use at times. Not this site, plus I’m simple, this site uses big pictures ! I’ll continue to support this site 100%

I had a 2004 and a 2012 4runner. I loved them. But as lot of ppl already mentioned the MPG what kills. Other than that I always had a soft spot for 4runners. I probably pick one up soon as they do something about the engine and transmission respect to gas mileage. Toyota should get on it and make some changes. To be honest I have no complains about the interior or exterior.

My guess is we’ll see a 6th Gen in 2020 when Ford releases the new Bronco. Toyota better step up their game because Ford already has much better technology in their new vehicles then Toyota and better power train options such as engines with stock turbos that have better mpg’s then Toyota’s non turbo’d engines. I can’t even guess what Ford will be offering two years from now, so again Toyota needs to step up their game.

No ford playing catch-up 😂. Toyota tech is far superior than fords. Example engine tech Toyota NA 2.0 engine makes 168 hp and gets 42+ mpg PLUS reliability behind it. The 4Runner GR series engine is probably the most reliable engine ever made. Last time ford had all kinds of problems 2.3 liter comes to mind. The engine is turbo and has a fully unsupported deck!!!!! Who does that? Lolol ford does that.

I wouldn’t be so quick about those Ford turbos. They are not for the faint hearted.

lmao, Toyota better step their game up???? Whenever you watch a Ford or Chevy commercial, they always compare their vehicles to Toyota or Honda. You never see/hear Toyota comparing their vehicles to any other car manufacturer. When was the last time you saw a Ford with more than 300k miles with the same parts (minus regular maintenance wear-and-tear parts)????

I own a 20111 SR5 4Runner and on Thursday I purchased a new 2018 Tacoma TRD Off Road. I just don’t understand what people.expect. On one hand, everyone complained about the 4runners bland interior, poor rod handling and mpg. However, they also want the 4×4 aspect and all the luxury trims. They are at the opposotite ends of the pole. As someone who drives his cars off road down narrow logging roads and rough terrain, almost every weekend I see no need for all the luxury trimming. What do people expect from Toyota? Is it not enough to have legendary… Read more »

5th gen wasn’t built for off road from my experience. It felt nothing like earlier generations.

Agree with you 100%%%%% and thank God i’m not the only person who thinks this. Majority of people on these threads really don’t want an off-road vehicle, they just like the idea of driving one. A lot of these ticky tacky wants/needs almost sounds like they should be in a Prius or a Rav4. If you want *luxury* interior and fancy buttons and switches, go buy a Lexus. At the end of the day the 4runner is built on the same chassis as the Tacoma, in other words its a TRUCK that looks like an SUV.

My wife and I are looking for a new vehicle for her to daily and the 4runner is one of top picks. However, low mpg, the interior, and knowing a redesign could be soon are what keeps us second guessing buying now. Hoping the 6th gen is more luxurious and gets better mpg. Also need to keep its off-road capabilities.

don’t do it. Sounds like you’d be better off in a lexus if you want luxury but if you want hybrid/better MPG then a prius or rav4 would work best.

I know one thing that would make me up and sell my 4runner for a 6th gen model and thats if it was a hybrid. My only gripe with the 4runner is it’s poor MPG. So in an ideal world we’d have a tough hybrid 4runner getting 40mpg.

Sounds like you’d be better off in a Rav4 or a Prius to suit your needs/wants. 4Runners are built on the same chassis as a Tacoma fyi.
