The 2020 Toyota 4Runner comes in a few different flavors already: SR5, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro, among others. Toyota is expanding the SUV’s comprehensive range with the custom 4Runner Venture Edition.
At first look, this 4Runner’s exterior may not scream “special edition,” but the devil is in the details. The 4Runner Venture Edition gets unique touches like a standard Yakima Megawarrior roof rack (crossbars included), which measures 52 inches long, 48 inches wide, and 6.5 inches tall. That’s some serious roof storage.
This special model adds black door handles, mirror caps, rear spoiler, and badges. New 17-inch TRD wheels distinguish the Venture Edition, and its gunmetal design adds to its off-road personality.
Given that this 4Runner is designed to spend most of its time on the trails, all-weather floor mats and a rear cargo mat come standard. Like in other 4Runners, a rear sliding cargo deck is available for easier loading and unloading.
For 2020, all 4Runners receive a larger, 8.0-inch touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. Toyota’s TSS-P active-safety suite spreads automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, automatic high-beams, and adaptive cruise control across the line. The instrument cluster has also been redesigned, and rear-seat passengers can now charge devices from two USB ports.
The 2020 Toyota 4Runner Venture Edition is powered by a 4.0-liter V-6 engine that produces 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, mated to a five-speed automatic.
The Venture Edition starts at $45,405, $1815 more than the TRD Off-Road Premium model, and brings only minimal changes to the lineup, it’s an alternative for those looking for unique styling and more storage space for their outdoor gear.
