Gloucester Toyota Reviews 4Runner Capability

May 5th, 2017 by

If you want a good SUV, especially one with off-roading capability, we recommend moving the 2017 Toyota 4Runner to the top of your list. Off-roading, towing and competitive highway sprints: the 4Runner can do it all.

With the right engine under the hood, an SUV can be competitive. That’s why Toyota put a 4-liter V6 in the 4Runner. This engine delivers 270 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of torque. Clever engineering allows it to utilize that torque across a wide spectrum. 4Runners can tow up to 5,000 pounds and have a tongue weight rating of 500 pounds. The built-in hitch makes it easy to get started. Find your best deal at Gloucester Toyota dealer serving Yorktown VA.

Toyota employs an automatic limited slip differential to make the 4Runner capable of doing much more than the average front-wheel drive SUV. Stepping up, Active Traction Control makes Toyota’s part-time four-wheel drive system quite effective. You can select low-range capability with the vehicle’s two-speed transfer case. Drive force is delivered to the wheel or wheels in contact with the surface. Full-time four-wheel drive has a Torsen center differential and a three-mode torque-split switch. If you step up to the TRD editions, you can pick up Crawl Control and a multi-terrain select system. Extremely uneven terrain can be conquered with the exclusive Mogul setting.

TRD editions can utilize a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System for better off-roading and a more nimble on-road ride. The Limited’s X-REAS suspension utilizes a center control absorber to join the shocks on opposite corners. This helps balance out rough rides.
