8 Standard Airbags
4Runner is prepared to help protect you and your passengers with our driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger TAP (Thorax, Abdomen, Pelvis) front seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags and all-row Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA)19.
19 All the airbag systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All airbags (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating airbag, always wear seatbelts and sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
Side-Impact Door Beams
To help provide extra occupant protection if the vehicle is stuck from the side, impact beams are located inside all doors and are designed to absorb energy and help reduce the chance of intrusion into the cabin.
Tire Pressure Monitor System
Proper tire pressure is important not only for good handling and fuel economy, but also for your safety. 4Runner’s standard Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS)20 evaluates the pressure of the tires and issues a warning if the pressure becomes critically low.
20 The Toyota Tire Pressure Monitor alerts the driver when tire pressure is critically low. For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge; do not rely solely on the monitor system. See Owner’s Manual for details.
Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That’s why we include a no cost maintenance plan that covers normal factory scheduled maintenance with the purchase or lease of every new 4Runner for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.21. 24-hour roadside assistance is also included for 2 years and unlimited miles22.
21 Covers normal factory scheduled service for 2 years or 25K miles, whichever comes first. See Toyota dealer for details and exclusions. Valid only in the continental U.S. and Alaska.
22 Roadside Assistance coverage is 2 years unlimited mileage. Does not include parts and fluids, except emergency fuel delivery. See Toyota Dealer for details and exclusions. Valid only in the continental U.S. and Alaska.
Star Safety System™
4Runner comes standard with our Star Safety System™, a suit of six safety features designed to keep you out of harm’s way. It includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)23, Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA)24 and Smart Stop Technology® (SST)25.
23 Vehicle Stability Control is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions, weather and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
24 Smart Stop Technology® operates only in the event of certain contemporaneous brake and accelerator pedal applications. When engaged, the system will reduce power to help the brakes bring the vehicle to a stop. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver input can all impact stopping distance. Smart Stop Technology® is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping. See Owner’s Manual for details.
25Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper vehicle maintenance, and tire and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
