The automotive landscape is inundated with crossovers that deliver sedan-like performance, handling, and efficiency with more spaciousness for passengers and cargo. Yet, while these models are classified as SUVs, purists argue they aren’t genuine SUVs with their unibody designs. Instead, rigs like the 4Runner and its body-on-frame platform take that honor as an anti-crossover SUV that blends sophistication with rugged capability. Perhaps this balance inspired your search for a Toyota 4Runner for sale, or maybe you’re drawn to the exceptional reliability of the Toyota name.
Whatever inspired your search, you’ll find the 4Runner and more at Haley Toyota of Richmond. Just as the 4Runner stays true to its SUV roots, we remain true to our legacy as a family-oriented dealership that delivers a customer experience like no one else.

Shopping with Haley Toyota of Richmond means having the opportunity to get excited about the 4Runner and the buying process. Our passion for the Toyota lineup is unprecedented and, quite frankly, contagious. It makes it easy for our customers to enjoy every step of their journey, from browsing our extensive inventory of new and used models to taking test drives, narrowing their searches, and finalizing the sale. This is how buying an SUV like the 4Runner should be, and we’re here to deliver every step of the way.
The first-generation 4Runner was nothing more than a Hilux pickup truck with a fiberglass shell over the bed. The bare-bones design was enough for drivers in the 1980s, especially those looking for a capable SUV that could easily accommodate passengers and cargo. Toyota guaranteed as much, equipping the first-generation 4Runner with a standard 100-hp engine and adding unique components like an independent suspension to improve on and off-road handling.
By the 1990s, Toyota fine-tuned the 4Runner by adding rear doors for improved accessibility and replacing the coils with leaf springs in the independent front suspension. However, it wasn’t until the third generation that the 4Runner deviated from its truck-like design and debuted a specific body-on-frame platform that gave it a unique aesthetic. As a result, the 4Runner was less like a truck with a camper shell and more akin to a genuine SUV.
As Toyota refined the 4Runner’s design, it extended its wheelbase to improve its aerodynamics and expand its cabin size. These changes ignited the SUV’s ongoing efforts to balance its off-road prowess with heightened on-road performance and more responsive handling. Could an SUV deliver both without asking drivers to sacrifice or settle for less?
The 4Runner achieved what was once deemed impossible, as the fourth-generation SUV introduced a larger and better-appointed cabin, more capable engines, and a versatile Torsen center differential designed for everyday driving. The 4Runner's success at balancing ruggedness with sophistication struck a chord with drivers and continues to do so today, making it one of Toyota’s top sellers and one of the best-value SUVs on any new or used lot.
Toyota is one of the most revered automotive brands in the industry because of its success in building vehicles that retain their value over the years. While most new cars depreciate incredibly fast, SUVs like the 4Runner are exceptions to industry standards. Kelley Blue Book proves as much, with the 4Runner earning countless honors for its high resale value year after year. But what does this mean for you when it's time to buy?
The 4Runner’s exceptional resale value makes it a wise investment and a remarkable find as a new or used model.

The 2022 4Runner continues its tenure in the Toyota lineup and builds on its legacy as a “do-anything” SUV with a penchant for adventure. Toyota celebrates as much by expanding the 4Runner’s lineup with the all-new TRD Sport that outfits the SUV with 20-inch wheels, exclusive badging, a hood scoop, and faux-leather upholstery. These features give the trim a unique advantage, proving its keen ability to balance capability with agile on-road performance.
Beyond the TRD Sport, the 4Runner also enjoys several other upgrades and modifications. The SUV now comes standard with LED lighting for improved visibility and a rear occupancy alert for enhanced safety. Most trims build on these safety features by adding Toyota’s blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert technology. The more adventurous and rugged TRD Pro also sees the addition of the multi-terrain monitor, a standard feature for the 2022 model that uses strategically placed cameras to give drivers better visibility around the vehicle when navigating technical terrain.
