Toyota America announced the official pricing for the 2014MY of two of its utility vehicles. There is the 2014 Toyota 4Runner mid-size SUV ($32,820) that offers the same old bland of toughness and good features, and there is the mighty Toyota Tacoma ($17,875) that comes with a new appearance package.
With its rugged body-on-frame and uprated suspension, the new 2014 Toyota 4Runner is over 1,300 bucks dearer than the previous model. But the new one features a redesigned front fascia, new taillights, and upgraded trim levels. The SR5 and Trail grades feature a color-keyed grille insert and front bumper that is surrounded by fog lamps set in sharply cut inlays that extend from the headlamps down to the bumper.
Choices include wheels from 17 to 20 inches in size; two or four-wheel-drive; and four new body colors. Among the new interior features on both the SR5 and Trail grade are standard Soft Touch door trim, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather shift knob. Entune is also standard on the SR5 model, while the Limited version gets a JBL sound system.
