#53 of 2021 SUVs
#100 of all 2021 vehicles
The 4Runner, a mainstay of Toyota's lineup for decades, is a three-row midsize SUV with seating up to 7. The 4Runner has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. Toyota offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
We estimate that the 2021 Toyota 4Runner has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0442% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.0465%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0442% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.0465% chance of being injured.
Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is 5% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is 9% more likely to result in a fatal accident.
Active safety features with Toyota's Safety Sense can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. Active safety systems that are standard on the Toyota 4Runner include: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA).
Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
