1987 Toyota 4Runner

After the 1986 redesign, the 1987 Toyota 4Runner remained primarily unchanged. The suspension remained an Independent Front Suspension with its accompanying increase in highway driving quality and decrease in off-roading power.

The powerful 22R-TE I4, a turbo-charged version of the prior 2.4-liter I4 remained an option, but was only available with an automatic transmission.
