LOL, which color looks best.

BUT I can say the white hides pin-stripping pretty well (with DIY synthetic wax). I had a blue vehicle previously and learned my lesson.

1. Scars earned in battle will not be held against contestants.

2. Taste is highly subjective. Iím a fan of chromatic colors like red and blue. The market seems to prefer non-chromatic ďcolorsĒ: white, silver, MGM, and black.

Spent the last decade in a midnight blue vehicle. Looking to go Barcelona Red on a 2020 T4R. Not really seeking validation.

Iíve noticed over the years it seems like Toyota feels that the answer to your question is a Barcelona Red Off-Road. If you look at the brochures and advertising since the 2014 refresh, Toyota has used this trim and color A LOT in its advertising. A red Trail/Off-Road has been the brochure cover photo every year since 2014. Shortly after the 2014 update, Toyota ran a "Keep It Wild" ad campaign that featured a Barcelona Red Trail. If you go to Toyota's website right now and choose 4Runner, there is a video at the top which features a Barcelona Red Off-Road. You can find Barcelona Red 4Rs all over the place in Toyota ads.

So, it looks like Toyota sees the Barcelona Red Off-Road as the quintessential 4Runner look.


But if the OR trim isn't your thing, I think it largely depends on which trim youíre considering. The different bumper colors, grills, and wheels make a big difference. Here are my thoughts:

SR5: silver or gray. Both of these colors tend to hide/compliment the more basic looks of SR5.

Off-Road: red or white. They both show off the vehicles lines and nicely complement the silver front and rear bumper trim.

Limited: white. The Limited is going for a fancier look and the white compliments the chrome.

Limited Nightshade: gray. Looks badass. Probably the best Limited combo/look of all.

Pro: white. The white is a great contrast to all the black pieces and wheels. Makes for a mean, Storm Trooper look.

White is the best looking.

But it is a single stage paint which will turn to crap in a few years.

I really liked the Storm Trooper white but do to the inevitable paint chipping and the black plastic behind the paint i really didn't want a black spotted white 4R so i went with my favorite Magnetic gray metallic color.
