About The 3rd Gen. Toyota 4Runner

The 3rd Generation Toyota 4Runner was released for the 1996 model year, offering a significant aesthetic refresh and increased comfort features while continuing the legendary capability.

Powering the 3rd Generation 4Runner was your choice of a 2.7L 3RZ-FE inline 4 cy., or 3.4L 5VZ-FE V6. The Japanese market also received a 3.0L turbo diesel option. Notably, the 2000 model year was also the last year that the 4Runner was offered with a manual transmission.

The 3rd Gen. Toyota 4Runner was offered in base, SR5, Limited, and Sport trim levels, with the SR5 offering upgrades like chrome bumpers, power windows and power door locks. 2002 would be the last model year for the 3rd Gen. 4Runner, yielding to the redesigned 4th Gen.
