Recent sales of the traditional version highlight the fact that the 4Runner is mostly bought by consumers who are less likely to enjoy the chunky styling and towing ability of the Highlander. Crossovers of two models have mostly been discontinued i.e. Nissan Xterra. However, this stylish vehicle continues to hold the attention of its buyers. The competition for the crossovers is high in America with the ever increasing manufacturing of popular products. Customers are often torn between the competitive models of a vehicle. The 2017 Toyota 4Runner competes for its place as a crossover vehicle with Jeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Murano, Ford Edge, Kia Sorento, Volkswagen Touareg, and Dodge Journey.

The changes to the exterior design are very up to date to give a sleek finish. The LED lights are built in, the grill and the bumper are sturdy and redesigned to feature a change. The exhaust system, roof spoiler, and the LED lighting give a nice finish as well as a solid functionality to the exterior. The material used to build the exterior is way lighter than what is used in the traditional design. The newer generation will offer five doors with three rows of windows excluding the roof rails. The wheels are made from a dynamic alloy that gives a beautiful finish to the design.


Coming to the interior designing, some significant changes have been made. The life of its traditional design ended with some similarities in the exterior design, the interior, on the other hand, improves the quality of the experience by abandoning such similarities. The material for the seats, dashboard, and the instrumental panel is entirely new and features the best comfort there is in the SUV world.
