The Toyota 4Runner, as one of the original SUVs, has been around longer than most of the competition. The 4Runner fits into its own niche well, especially after being moved up to the mid-size SUV class back in the 90s. With the added space, the 4Runner became more of what we think of today, a truly capable, well-rounded sport utility vehicle. Read on to learn just how big the 4Runner is and how much cargo space that gives it.
2020 Toyota 4Runner Size
The following figures are taken from measurements of the base model of the 4Runner, the SR5. From the front bumper to the back bumper, the 2020 Toyota 4Runner is 190.2 inches long. From side to side, the 4Runner is 75.8 inches wide. It stands at 71.5 inches tall, with 9 inches of ground clearance. The ground clearance notably increases by more than half an inch on trims designed for off-roading. The wheelbase measures 109.8 inches. These dimensions leave 144.5 cu.ft. of interior space.
2020 Toyota 4Runner Cargo Space
The 144.5 cu.ft. of interior space allows for 47.2 cu.ft. of cargo space behind the second row of seats. This is a generous amount of cargo space at it is, but it increases by almost double when you can fold the back row of seats down. The rear bench folds down neat enough to increase cargo space to 89.7 cu.ft. If you need to load up camping equipment, musical instruments, sports gear, groceries, or whatever, the 4Runner has you covered.
Can the 2020 Toyota 4Runner Tow?
If you need to move more than the maximum cargo space worth of stuff in the 4Runner, you should know that the SUV is also rated for towing. When properly equipped with the right hitch, you can pull up to 5,000 lbs. behind the 4Runner. Remember to load safely and ensure all connections are secure. The ability to tow proves in another way just how adaptable and useful the 4Runner is.
