The Toyota 4Runner 40th Anniversary Edition is the vehicle featured in our podcast cover photo this week. As the name implies, it celebrates four decades since this nameplate's launch. The SUV features yellow/orange/red body graphics that evoke the 1980s, and buyers can select the body colors Midnight Black, Barcelona Red, or White. The wheels are bronze-colored and measure 17 inches in diameter. This trim is limited to 4,040 units.
The Acura Integra Type S is the sporty version of the brand's entry-level sedan. It packs a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 320 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 310 pound-feet of torque available between 2,600 and 4,000 revs. The only gearbox available is a six-speed manual. There are also adaptive dampers. Prices start at $51,995 after the destination fee.
The Land Rover Range Rover Velar just received a refresh for the 2024 model year. The styling only receives minor tweaks like updated headlights and an updated lower bumper. The bigger revisions are in the cabin where the SUV gains an 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen infotainment. The base trim uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine making 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. There's also a mild-hybrid turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six offering 395 hp and 405 lb-ft.
We hope you join the conversation and share your thoughts about these models. And be ready to ask lots of questions to our hosts.
