Toyota 4runner, the newest generation of the automaker’s popular SUV, has a very sexy paintjob.
The 4Runner’s signature silver-grey color scheme has been a staple of the Toyota brand since the mid-1990s, and its styling is often compared to that of the late-model Toyota Camry.
But the latest iteration of the 4Runner is not as sexy as the old-school car.
It’s got a more masculine look that doesn’t match the car, and the paintjob has been replaced with a matte finish.
The new paint job, which is called “Red and Gold” and was developed by the company’s New York City-based paint supplier, is more reflective than the original.
“The Red and Gold paintjob is reflective enough to make the car look like it has an exterior that is a shade lighter than the exterior,” Toyota spokesperson J.D. McQuillan told News24.
“But it’s not reflective enough so as to make it look like the exterior has an interior that is also a shade of gray.”
McQuillans claims that the new paintjob “works well for a car that looks like it’s going to be the first vehicle that Toyota has ever made with a bright red and gold paintjob.”
According to the company, the new Red and Black paintjob also makes the car more resistant to heat and cold.
“Red and Black also helps protect the car from sun damage, which has been an issue in the past with the 4runner,” the spokesperson said.
“So if you are going to have a heated car, then this is the perfect color to get rid of the heat.”
The new color will be on all the 4runners in Japan, as well as the U.S. and Canada, starting in 2018.
Toyota will sell only 2,400 4runners, with the rest of the fleet going on sale in 2019.
