    When we picked up my 2020 SR5P the dealership said that it was assembled in a plant in Japan. Are there any differences between Japanese and American assembled 4Runners?

    I believe all 4runners are built 100% in Japan.

    This is correct. They are all made in Japan.

    Take a look at your VIN number. The first letter will be J. J is the Country of Origin and J=Japan.

    All built at the Tahara Lexus factory so the build quality is about as good as any car you will find, or at the very least exceeds the build quality of most cars you will ever drive.

    Too bad they couldn't adjust my parking brake properly.

    The fit/finish on my 4Runner is much better than my California made 2005 Tacoma was.
