Gadgets Galore Adorn the Ruggedly Handsome TRD Off-Road

The 2017 Toyota 4Runner offers sufficient capability for a wide array of camping, climbing, and carpooling needs.

In the same way that a good-looking male rock musician can get away with wearing earrings and eye liner, the stylishly rugged 2017 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road Premium confidently flaunts its impressive masculinity by way of an eye-catching stance coupled with unquestionably attractive design features.

Joining the SR5, SR5 Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro are now the TRD Off-Road and TRD Off-Road Premium (last year's Trail and Trail Premium grades) which deliver tough yet refined features which include color-keyed bumpers and overfenders, silver painted bumper accents, red lettering on the front headrests, an adrenaline-enticing hood scoop, and unique TRD Off-Road badges blazoned on the C-pillars. Subtle variations in cabin materials no doubt give the vehicle a sleek and simultaneously cohesive appeal.

Sitting conspicuously at the base of the center console, the TRD shift knob conveniently beckons drivers to engage its advanced drive modes. The 4Runner offers the choice of 2WD, part-time 4WD with a 2-speed transfer case, or full-time multi-mode 4WD with a 2-speed transfer case and locking center differential. The multi-terrain select system with sturdy knobs that are easy to grip additionally allows drivers to select a mode according to terrain and conditions. Toyota's innovative Crawl Control (CRAWL) feature further regulates engine speed and braking force in order to help maintain vehicle speed and control when driving up hills or over obstacles in off-road environments. This allows the driver to focus on steering without modulating the brake or throttle.

Reflecting the decades-long TRD (Toyota Racing Development) off-road heritage, the new grades are a welcome addition among their particular consumer demographic. The 4Runner has a large and loyal following, with dependability being a key factor. Of all the 4Runners purchased in the last ten years, 90 percent are still on the road, said John Myers, national manager, trucks and SUVs, Toyota Vehicle Marketing and Communications.


Toyota 4Runner | Wheel

Powered by a 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 engine with a 5-speed ECT-i automatic transmission and offering up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity, the 2017 Toyota 4Runner offers sufficient capability for a wide array of camping, climbing, and carpooling needs. The 2017 Toyota 4Runner starts at just $34,210 MSRP, so hop into one today at a dealer near you.
