Toyota 4Runner

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is one of the last few SUVs offering rugged body-on-frame construction. Mixed with its outstanding off-road abilities, it-s the optimal choice for anyone looking for adventure. To learn more about the many reasons to choose the 2016 4Runner for your next exploration, continue reading.

Solid Power. The 2016 4Runner houses just one engine choice under the hood – a 4.0-liter V6. Paired to a five-speed automatic transmission, this duo produces a healthy 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque.

The 2016 4Runner boasts a variety of gear to increase performance off road. SR5 models of the 4Runner, for example, include a part-time four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing for a solid performance off-road, while the 4Runner Limited model uses a full-time 4WD system with low-range gearing and a locking central differential. Upper models like the Trail and TRD Pro house a part-time 4WD system that also includes a locking rear differential, crawl control for use in low-range gearing, and selectable terrain models.

Need to tow? No problem! The 2016 4Runner offers respectable tow rates of up to 5,000 pounds depending on model.

Capability of 2016 Lineup Models. No matter which model of the 2016 4Runner is chosen, each is primed for off-road action with a vast list of content like mud guards, skid plates, and hill-start assist and hill-descent control. Upper models gain extra advanced electronic aids like adaptive roll-reducing dampers for more precise off-roading. But, which model is the most capable when heading off road? Well, that depends on what you-re looking for.

The 4WD-only 4Runner Trail offers good off-road items like a locking rear differential, selectable terrain models, and crawl control. It is also the only model to get the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS), which can automatically disconnect the stabilizer bars in low-speed off-road situations in order to improve suspension articulation over deep ruts and boulders.

The TRD Pro mimics the Trail in terms of standard equipment, but adds more off-road gear, such as: special off-road tires, Bilstein shocks, upgraded front springs, and aluminum front skid plate. It also features a higher ride height for increased safety off the beaten path.

The Limited model offers a four-wheel-drive system with locking center differential, as well as adaptive roll-reducing dampers (X-REAS).

Other optional features worth noting for all 2016 4Runner trims include fixed running boards, automatic deploying/retracting running boards, sliding rear cargo floor, and roof-rack crossbars.
