You are in the Toyota 4Runner
What is this discussion about?
Toyota 4Runner, SUV

It can give an hint to look at the Toyota.jp web site and find your way to the Hilux Surf vehicle.
Headlights have changed a bit
Over fenders are now round....
The back has change a bit but not much..
Maybe it is because it is the japanese version of the vehicle but these changes seems to give the 4Runner a softer look. As much as I did not like the squarish overfenders I have to admit they help to give a more aggressive look to the 4Runner.
I think that Toyota is backing out a bit from the aggressive stance they gave to the 4Runner.
To some extent I think those changes make the 4Runner look a bit more like the pre-2003 4Runner and the pre-2005 Pathfinder (smoother curves, a bit more conservative).

Where did you see pictures of the 06 model ? The one on this forum is a concept vehicle from toyota.jp? Just curious bcos I plan on buying soon and debating 05 or 06 model.

These are not pictures from a concept vehicle. It is the Helix Surf from Japan. Its version is very similar to the north american 4Runner.
If you look at it closely you can easily identify the changes that were listed in the Toyota press release.
On the outside, to me, only the rounder overfenders is a significant change. The front grill is pretty much 1999 ish... It reminds me a lot of my 1999 SR5 front grill.
I do not think that these changes should stop you from considering the interesting rebates Toyota have these days. It is not like a complete model overhaul.

Since people have started to talk discounts and such, I'm planning on buying an '06 4runner in December. Anyone know what kind of deals or lack thereof I can expect?
#10901 of 11428 CD changers in 05 4runner
Aug 10, 2005 (6:15 pm)
Does anyone know or have installed the cd changer ? 05 sport only comes with single cd. Not sure if the changer offered by toyota plays mps cds as well. Or If any after market ones are compatible with the existing system.
