Thanks to one particularly sleuthy Autoblog reader, we now have a ton of useful information about the upcoming 2010 Toyota 4Runner, including the fact that its powertrain options will consist of a 161-horsepower four-cylinder and a 268-horsepower six. The new body-on-frame SUV is slated for debut at the State Fair of Texas later in the month, but the boys at Car and Driver managed to obtain a set of spy photos that shows the truck both inside and out.
We can clearly see that Toyota will be endowing the 2010 4Runner with an upright, squared-off look, reinforcing the vehicle's position as one of the brand's off-road capable offerings. Those looking for a more sedate ride and swoopier appearance can choose from Toyota's car-based Highlander or Venza crossovers, but the 4Runner figures to be in the thick of the off-road capable hunt, along with the Land Cruiser and FJ Cruiser. Expect the next-gen 4Runner to go about its business with a number of new features that add to both its off-the-road credibility and the luxuriousness of its interior, the latter of which has fallen well behind the curve ahead of the new model's arrival. Full details will be released on September 24, so stay tuned.
