2010 Toyota 4Runner to be revealed at Texas State Fair
August 27, 2009 - 1:54 pm ET
In a nod to its rugged nature, the 2010 Toyota 4Runner will debut on Sept. 24 in Dallas at the Texas State Fair.
More details will be revealed then, but Toyota hinted today that the interior will be upgraded with added room and comfort for the fifth-generation sport-utility vehicle.
Just what you need in a rugged offroad vehicle, "added room and comfort".

I like the grips on the steering wheel. Wish my 07 Sport had them. Can't wait, though, to see the whole vehicle and read the initial reviews. I was kind of hoping they would've leaned more toward the 02 body style. Personally, I hardly ever like a new body style at first sight . . . it has to grow on me.
#161 of 769 Very Interesting??

I'm the owner of a 2000 taco and 2000 JGC, both off-road stars. Didn't like the interior of the current generation 4-runner, so never gave it another look. The new FJ is a wannbee offroad Scion weirdo with terrible blind spots and it should have been designed more like a Wrangler or LR Defender. If Toyota produces a better dimension 4-runner with back-to basics style, them I'm interested. I hope they don't put any of that weird crap on it that makes it more of a gimmick. If so, I'll just get a redesigned 2010 JGC.

By now we have all seen the pics of the 2010 4Runner.
The trail edition with black plastic mat bumper does not appeal to me. You can see the screws where plate was put on. In my view, make it steel for off road edition or leave color coded. Toyota is mistaken to classify/characterize off roaders as yupee or as tailor boys. We require a functional vehicle for the purposes of significant city & hwy driving to get where we need to go as well around town, towing our toys and off roading once we get there.
It is difficult to comment on what else is difference in trail edition, but as you said, I would not hesitate to move away from Toyota if it is anything like FJ with non-functional features aimed at yupees

Owning an '05 4Runner Sport Edition w/ a V8 that I tow a 21 foot travel trailer with...let me say this:
Toyota will not sell many of these...they are ugly and lack a wide choice of motors.
Look at the Tundra-for reasons only known to Toyota-they went with a "swiss cheese" frame and their sales volume isn't any where near their projections. They have "bed bounce" and tailgates that don't hold up to the normal uses of a truck.
Even Toyota can make mistakes....

I am in utter shock after looking at these photos.
I don't know who was designing this horrid monster, it is unfortunate because the 4runner has always been a staple of Toyota. I feel that it no longer will be. Looks like I won't be in the market for the new 2010 models
...Looks like Toyota really screwed this one up.
