The arrival of Ford Bronco is making the mess in the SUV segment. We still don’t know what it is precisely, but the latest spy photos suggest the market is getting another off-roader. That is why Jeep Wrangler is bringing the PHEV unit for the next season. And what about the Toyota 4Runner? We won’t see updates on this vehicle until 2022.
The new rival is in the town. The attention the 2021 Bronco caused is abnormal. So, you can imagine how it will affect sales. Do not be surprised if it hits the #1 spot in sales soon after the arrival. In other words, it means some Toyota 4Runner’s fans will test the new SUV. The Japanese company needs a response. The redesign of the vehicle is the only solution.
2022 4Runner vs 2021 Ford Bronco
The 4Runner is one of the first models that will get the new look, sources from Toyota confirms. But, the initial plan was to bring the vehicle in 2022. With the new Ford Bronco coming this year as 2021 YM, the Japanese manufacturer will have to speed up the process. The company cannot take damage for two or three seasons. Bronco is one of the hottest new arrivals, and ever since the comeback became official in 2017, fans are crazy about it.

2022 4Runner vs 2022 Jeep Wrangler
Jeep Wrangler is still a favorite among US buyers. It offers 2- and 4-door configuration. Still, the Toyota 4Runner manages to compete with the 4×4 SUV with its 7-seat configuration and the TRD Pro off-road gear. Next season, we will see the plug-in hybrid Wrangler. But, Toyota is about to respond to this with 4Runner Hybrid. While the FCA is already testing its model, the Japanese carmaker is not confirming the arrival of the vehicle yet.

Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro
The main reason why Toyota 4Runner is so popular is the TRD Pro off-road package with Fox shocks, special all-terrain tires, and other off-road gear. Still, it’s been five years since the company introduced this version. Although it is still popular, the arrival of the competition will make Toyota bring more features to the TRD Pro fans.
