Get Wild in a 2017 Toyota 4Runner

By Justin Cupler | March 20th, 2017


Perfect for off-roading and big towing jobs, the 2017 Toyota 4Runner is the last SUV to act and feel like a truck. It has solid rear axle and body-on-frame construction, as well as optional four-wheel drive that comes with a two-speed transfer case with a low range in the SR5 and Trail modes. It’s as close to being a truck as it can be with all the creature comforts of an SUV. Here’s what our team loves about the 2017 Toyota 4Runner.

The 4.0-liter V-6 engine is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission that earns 270 horsepower and a max towing capacity to 5,000 pounds, so you have more than enough power to handle any job. But if you’d rather take this beast off the beaten path, engage Toyota’s Crawl Control feature to help you maintain a constant speed over rocky terrain and opt for the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System for extended wheel travel and greater off-road control and stability.


In a segment crowded with would-be luxury SUVs, the 2017 Toyota 4Runner proudly reminds you that it’s all about the job. While comfortable and accommodating, it puts ruggedness over luxury. The base trim level comes equipped a leather-trimmed steering wheel, back-up camera with dynamic gridlines, and Toyota’s exclusive Entune touchscreen technology. From there you can add heated and ventilated front seats, dual zone climate control, and more. The 4Runner is packed with brawny features to help you make the most out of every day on the job.

With two rows of seating to seat five adults comfortably, there is a cargo space aplenty in the trunk area, not to mention plenty of thoughtful cubbies and storage bins all over the vehicle. With the available roof rack for additional baggage space, you can easily take off for the weekend with all your gear and room to spare. When you take the 4Runner out into the unsettled countryside, and add in the optional sunroof and everyone will have a beautiful view, no matter where they sit.
