In the 21st century, vehicle buyers want their purchases to be outfitted with the kind of equipment that will allow them to safely and easily integrate their favorite devices into their daily commute. Owners choosing the EX-L trim of the 2019 Passport and higher will have access to the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications as well as an optional high-speed mobile internet connection. The 2019 Toyota 4Runner does make basic elements like Bluetooth® available but nothing approaching the connectivity found with the EX-L, Touring and Elite models of the 2019 Passport. It’s worth pointing out that the 2019 4Runner does offer more interior cargo volume, but it also offers an additional row of seats. However, 2019 Passport makes an underfloor storage bin which can keep valuable out of the way.
