2017 Toyota 4Runner Changes
For the 2017 model year, the 2017 Toyota 4Runner received a number of key changes.

Last model year’s 4Runner Trail and Trail Premium trims are now known as the TRD Off-Road and TRD Off-Road Premium trims, and they now join the ultimate off-roader in the 2017 4Runner lineup—the 4Runner TRD Pro.
The 2017 Toyota 4Runner also received a number of exterior updates that include new badging and color options. Inside their cabins, the trio of 4Runner TRD models feature a fiber-patterned center console, with the TRD Off-Road trims getting unique “TRD Off-Road” floor mats. The TRD Off-Road Premium and TRD Pro trims add red TRD logos to the front seats headrests. Finally, drivers of all TRD models have the full arsenal of Toyota’s off-road driving technologies at their disposal.
