Toyota Celebrates 4Runner Anniversary with Special Edition

The Toyota 4Runner will reach the 40-year mark with the 2023 model year, and to celebrate, Toyota is offering a 4WD-only 2023 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition.

The 2023 Toyota 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition is based on the SR5 Premium grade and will be available in three colors: White, Midnight Black Metallic and Barcelona Red Metallic. It will stand out from the lineup thanks to bronze-colored 17-inch alloy wheels, a body-color-matching TOYOTA heritage grille and a bronze-colored 40th Anniversary exterior tailgate badge.

The first 4Runner was built on the Toyota pickup platform, which itself founded the heritage of Toyota’s success in off-road racing. As an homage to those early racers, the 4Runner 40th Anniversary Edition will be wearing retro-inspired yellow, orange and red body graphics.

The anniversary theme continues inside, where the 4Runner 40th Anniversary Special Edition gets exclusive badging on the center console and features a bronze-colored cross-stitch shift knob, bronze-colored seat stitching, 40th Anniversary floormats and a 40th Anniversary logo on the Black SofTex-trimmed seats. A power moonroof is also standard.
