The Toyota 4Runner Provides Excellent Off-Road Capabilities

The Toyota 4Runner is a rugged SUV designed with off-roaders and adventurers in mind. It’s one of the few modern SUVs to use body-on-frame construction like that of a pickup truck. Body-on-frame construction provides more durability which makes an SUV more efficient off-road vehicle. Aside from off-road capabilities, the 4Runner is powered by a 270-horsepower and 278-lb.-ft of torque V6 engine. These two attributes have made the Toyota 4Runner one of the most popular Mid-Size SUVs in America. All Toyota 4Runner trims are 4WD capable and can perform on a variety of terrain types.

The Toyota 4Runner offers two different 4-Wheel Drive systems to tackle any terrain. These systems are 4WD with Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) and A-TRAC with a limited slip differential. The Toyota 4Runner SR5 and SR5 Premium are equipped with part-time 4-Wheel drive delivered through A-TRAC. The 4Runner Limited is the ultimate off-road trim as it’s equipped with Full-time 4WD with A-TRAC and Torsen Limited Slip Differential that has a locking feature to help plow through rough terrain.

The 4Runner is equipped with Multi-Terrain Select which helps improve traction over four different off-road situations ranging from light to heavy. This system works by adjusting engine throttle output and traction to regulate wheel spin. This provides more traction and leads to better off-roading.
