Toyota 4Runner Has Best Residual Value Among SUVs

You already know there’s great value in owning a Toyota of any kind. And now, the 2016 Toyota 4Runner has been named the SUV with the best 36-month residual value by U.S. News & World Report.

Maybe it’s because of the truck-based design and underpinnings. The 4Runner is more capable and rugged than its competition because of it. With a 5,000 lb towing capacity and its off-road abilities, the 4Runner can do anything a small truck can. It can be equipped with Multi-terrain Select, Active Traction Control, locking rear differential, and Crawl Control for a superb all-terrain experience.

Maybe it’s the spacious interior, with comfortable seating for five. You can choose your trim level, from the rear-wheel-drive 4Runner SR5 to the four-wheel-drive 4Runner Limited with all the trimmings. Available options include heated and ventilated front seats, Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite, and a Smart Key push-button ignition.

It’s possible that the rock-solid powertrain is the reason it holds value so well. The 4.0-liter VVT-i V-6 has 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. That provides great acceleration and power on demand no matter where the road takes you.

Or, it might be because there’s a 4Runner to fit every person. Whether you want an SUV with a stable, secure ride like the 4Runner SR5, a luxurious premium vehicle like the 4Runner Limited, or a hardcore off-road capable rock-crawler like the 4Runner TRD Pro, there’s a 4Runner that fits the bill.

The striking looks are definitely a factor. The 4Runner is aggressively-featured with a mean-looking front grille and a high window beltline. Flared-out wheel wells punctuate its capable stance and show off its ground clearance. And you can choose from bold or classy colors to fit your personality.

Whatever your reason for driving a 4Runner, you can be confident that it will hold its value better than any other SUV. U.S. News reports that the 4Runner retains 66.7 percent of its value after a three-year period. After five years, the difference is tiny — the 4Runner retains just over 60 percent of its value.
