1989 Toyota 4Runner

The 1989 4Runner was built on the same platform as the Toyota pickup. Toyota took many steps to make the SUV different from the truck, including making the 4-door model the standard, rather than the 2-door (which became increasingly hard to find).

A new 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder was standard, while a 3.0-liter V6 was available as an upgrade. Both engines came as rear- and all-wheel drive.
