    I remember reading various articles about then-new 4Runner in 2009, and I know for a fact that a 2.7L/4-speed auto 2WD model was available in the SR5 trim. These seem to be relatively rare (especially in my home area of Southeast Pennsylvania where pretty much every new SUV sold is 4WD/AWD). I'm pretty sure I've never seen one in person, and I haven't been able to find one for sale online.

    Obviously, if I ever bought a 4Runner it would be a 4x4, but I was just curious if anyone owned one of these or had seen one. I love photographing obscure/unique Toyota vehicles for my photo collection.

    Yeah pre facelift you could get a 4 cylinder 2WD, I didn’t realize it was 2010 only. I’ve only ever heard of 1 person claiming to have had one.

    Isn't there a member here that lives in Hawaii that operates a 2wd version ?? Which I too did not know they made. But I guess it makes sense for other parts of the US/World :notsure:

    That thing had to be a dog...I had a 2nd Gen 4x4 4cyl and that thing was painfully slow. One of the biggest mistakes I ever made in car buying...

    Plenty of 2WD models out there in states that don't get snow. He's talking about a 2.7L 4 cyl. model.
