Patent Applied: Toyota 4Runner to come to China
Published on December 9, 2013 by W.E. Ning
The 4Runner is closely related to the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado which is made in China by the FAW-Toyota joint venture. That likely means, in Chinese joint-venture-logic, that the 4Runner will be made by the Guangzhou Toyota joint-venture.
The fifth-generation Toyota 4Runner arrived in 2009. Power comes from a 4.0 V6 petrol engine with 270hp. This engine would be fine for China but a stonkin’ V8 would be even better. Price for a China-made 4Runner would start around 500.000 yuan or 82.000 USD.
