Trail Editon With Black, 4 Wd, Brush Guards, Fog Lights And Off-road Options on 2040-cars
Summerland Key, Florida, United States
This Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition
is rugged enough and fully equipped for going off-road to hunt, hike, climb or for
a day at the shore and is good looking enough to take to the Commodore’s Ball
at the Yacht Club or the Ducks Unlimited dinner. Going off-road? In addition to four wheel drive, Westin brush
guards, fog lights and running boards (over $2,000 aftermarket cost), it comes with skid plates, a Kinetic
Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS), and increased clearance. For really tough terrain, there is crawl
control, downhill assist control and active traction control. And it runs so quiet; you can drive up on
many beautiful sights without being noticed. It tows boats and trailers with
using an integrated tow hitch receiver with both 4-pin & 7-pin connector wiring
For a day at the beach or
running errands, you get plenty of cargo space, roof rails that will take
standard paddleboard or kayak racks, Cargo area lighting
amplifier feature for outside entertainment, two 120V outlets, and a
retractable rear floor that makes loading easy or acts as a picnic table.
The interior projects rugged,
functional good looks. No leather and
fancy displays. Cloth front
bucket seats, -including 6-way manual driver seat w/power lumbar, 2nd row
40/20/40 split reclining fold-flat cloth bench seat, power glass moon roof, manual control for A/C, electronic door locks and windows, AM/FM
stereo w/CD/MP3 player, including: SIRIUS XM satellite radio, Bluetooth music
streaming wireless technology, (8) speakers. (2) aux audio input jacks, USB Port, 12V DC power outlets, hands free cellular and all of the little
storage spots and cup holders you need.
In almost 50,000 miles of driving, most of it highway
miles to my hunt camp in Alabama (10 trips @ 3,000 milels per trip), this car, with a 24 gal. tank, averaged 19
mpg which can be measured with the multi-information display for time,
fuel consumption, cruise range, temperature and compass. It cruises great at highway speeds using a user
friendly cruise control. The front
& rear stabilizer bars, front & rear shock absorbers, independent
double wishbone front suspension w/coil springs, and power 4-wheel ventilated
disc brakes along with a 4.0L DOHC 24-valve VVT-i V6 engine and 5-speed ECT
automatic transmission w/OD -including sequential shift mode give you all the
power and control you need.

In 2006, I bought a Scion xB (the super upright, first-generation one), and I always had this wild dream of turning the xBox into an aquarium after it had run its course in my personal test fleet. Long story short, that never happened. But apparently the folks at Toyota got wind of my idea - only, well, this isn't exactly what I had in mind.

Let's just start at the beginning here. This is a 2014 Toyota Highlander - you know, the redesigned one that bowed in New York earlier this year. I haven't driven it yet, but I'm sure it's plenty nice and will appeal to all sorts of families. Families with kids. Kids who like cartoons. Cartoons like Spongebob Squarepants.
Which brings me to our next talking point: the collaboration between Toyota and Nickelodeon for the Spongebob-themed wrap that covers every inch of this Highlander. This isn't the first time we've seen the yellow cartoon sponge on a Highlander - Toyota unveiled a differently wrapped version earlier this year - but this one features more of an aquatic, under-the-sea sort of theme. Perfect, considering the main point of this crossover's reason for being at SEMA.
A total of 22.6 million current and former Toyota owners have been sent notices that they may be eligible to receive compensation from the automaker for damages related to the unintended acceleration fiasco that has dominated headlines in 2009 and 2010. The total payout may be as high as $1.63 billion, according to The Detroit News.

Steve Berman, a lawyer for the owners, calls the potential deal "a landmark, if not a record, settlement in automobile defects class action litigation in the United States." Still, there's some debate about whether or not Toyota's proposed settlement is fair, as it includes $30 million for safety research and driver education programs - in other words, Toyota seems to be suggesting that drivers need more education on how to drive their correctly working and fully functional vehicles. For those keeping track, Toyota would also be paying lawyer fees of $200 million.
A US District Judge in California is scheduled to hold a so-called "fairness hearing" on June 14 that could decide the fate of this particular settlement. Further courtroom wrangling will be required to hash out any wrongful death suits levied against Toyota stemming from unintended acceleration claims, as those are not part of this class-action suit.
It doesn't matter the make or model - modern vehicles are technological miracles when it comes to occupant protection. Take this story out of New York City, which involved two people going for a very wild ride in a Toyota Matrix.
Carlos and Raquel Broadbelt were on the Cross Bronx Expressway overpass when they hit a patch of ice while dodging a pothole, sending them hurtling into a guardrail and over the side of the overpass. They fell 50 feet onto the road below. Despite the catastrophic accident - and the mangled Toyota - both driver and passenger walked away. The couple spent a night in the hospital just for observation.
The Broadbelts' miraculous survival has even surprised doctors, who told Dave Carlin from CBS New York they'd never seen an accident like it. Take a look below for the full news report from CBS New York.
