Thumbs up Should the 4runner be redesigned?

Hi folks, the 5th gen 4runner has been out there for more than a decade. Although there are quick a few significant upgrades, such as the debut of trd pro in 2015, the infotainment systems upgrades in 2020, the backbones of the truck remain similar, if not identical. Nonetheless, 4runner sales went skyrocketing high, with a sale number of more than 139k in 2018. Owners absolutely love its boxy style and old-school feel. On the other hand, the fuel economy and infotainment systems are much out of date. Although the 2020 model partially fixed it, 4runner is still missing many techs that can be seen on many other trucks and crossovers, which are even significantly cheaper than 4runner, such as the blind-spot monitor, parking sensors, birds-eye view... With that being said, do you think Toyota should totally redesign the 4runner to boom the sale? Or keep the look and powertrain but keep on upgrading the infotainment systems. If yes, when do you think this should happen? Please write down what you think briefly if you can. Thanks for participating, and I hope you all enjoy the debate.

Bump. Forgive my selfish, that I do think Toyota will redesign the truck soon, if not in 2021. But I hope they will do a redesign as they did to the Prius, due to I am also a Prius owner, and I absolutely prefer the 3rd gen Prius (2010-2015) over the 4th gen (2016-now2019).

I specifically bought my 2019 4Runner because it doesn't have any of those nanny systems. I hate them with a passion and my smart phone is superior to any infotainment system today.

That said Toyota will do as they always do, small refinements till they can do a big jump without risking reliability. Probably 2024+.

I honestly thing they need to go backward… back to the 4th Gen.

5th gen styling can stay, it does look nice, but mechanically I think the 4th gen was a better truck.
