For 40 years, 4Runner’s heritage has left its mark across the country, trekking through muddy terrain, rocky trails, water crossings and almost whatever the land has to offer. And to commemorate this milestone, we’re proud to introduce the 2023 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition. Limited to only 4,040 units, this SUV features unique details inside and out that celebrate how far we’ve come and welcome what’s next.
With its legendary body-on-frame design, 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition continues to provide the sturdy and reliable support you need when your adventures go beyond where the road ends.
Stand out in the wild. Styled with exclusive racing-inspired tri-color striped graphics, 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition’s nod to its heritage is sure to turn heads out on the open road or off-road trail.
A ride that’s truly one of a kind. With a unique bronze-colored emblem placed on the dash that shows off 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition’s exclusivity—being 1 of 4,040 has its perks.
Experience 4Runner’s unique heritage design and bronze-colored contrast stitching with every touchpoint inside the SUV. Whether looking at the embroidered headrests or shifting into drive, you’ll be reminded that you’ve got something special.
When the trail gets challenging, 4Runner’s available Crawl Control (CRAWL) is here to help you conquer your off-road adventure. This advanced system automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings so you can keep your focus on navigating across difficult terrain.
To help you negotiate uncertain terrain, 4Runner’s available electronically controlled locking rear differential distributes engine power evenly to both rear wheels, so they move at the same speed, even if one is off the ground. It is designed to help you maintain a controlled pace over obstacles.
Like an extra set of eyes to see what’s around you, 4Runner’s available Mutli-Terrain Monitor (MTM) helps you navigate nature’s obstacles with confidence. By using cameras placed around the SUV, you can get a better view of your surroundings on the 8-in. touchscreen display.
The available Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) helps 4Runner make molehills out of mountains. When taking on extreme off-road terrain, this system is designed to automatically decouple 4Runner’s sway bars as needed, helping improve wheel articulation. And when the terrain goes back to smooth and flat, the sway bars are designed to automatically reconnect.
When you’re in the thick of it, you can activate 4Runner’s available Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) system for optimized traction. Just choose from four terrain modes and this system helps regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle and traction control.
4Runner features a power rear window, a signature element found across all generations of 4Runner. And best of all, it’s standard. This rear glass raises and lowers with the push of a button, making it easier to grab your gear from the cargo area.
With 4Runner’s 40/20/40 fold-flat second-row seats, you can make room for everything you need by folding one or all three seats down to accommodate up to 88.8 cubic feet of cargo.
If you’re all about the entourage, you'll be able to accommodate up to seven passengers with the available third-row seating on SR5 and Limited grades. The seats also have a 50/50 split capability to make room for cargo.
4Runner’s legendary reliability continues with power from its 4.0-liter V6 engine. With up to 270 hp and 278 lb.-ft. of torque, you have all that you need to take you from adventure to adventure.
Standard on 4Runner Limited, full-time 4WD helps provide you with optimal traction for every drive. All you have to do is focus on the path ahead when the terrain gets rugged or when the road conditions become challenging, and full-time 4WD automatically sends power to the wheel that needs it most.
Giving you more control of your 4Runner’s capabilities is an available 4WD system that provides high- and low-range options. Select High 2 (H2) for daily driving and for the best fuel efficiency, High 4 (H4) for more traction under 55 mph, and Low 4 (L4) when you need to drive slowly or help in trekking over difficult terrain.
With 4Runner’s ability to tow up to 5000 lbs., venturing into some of nature’s toughest ranges doesn’t mean you have to leave everything behind. 4Runner adheres to SAE J2807, the standard for tow ratings set by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

4Runner’s standard Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps you identify vehicles that might be in a blind spot. When you use your turn signal and BSM detects a vehicle, it warns you with a flashing indicator light on the appropriate outside mirror. The Rear Cross-Traffic Alert provides audible and visual indicators to help warn you of approaching vehicles when you’re slowly backing out of a driveway or parking spot.
When backing up, the area visible to the camera is displayed on the 8-in. touchscreen. 4Runner’s available front and rear parking assist sonar beeps to tell you how close the bumpers are from a detected object. The faster it beeps, the closer the object is.
