2017 Toyota 4Runner Off-Road Capability
The Toyota 4Runner is known for its off-road capability and for the 2017 model year, Toyota added two new available grades, TRD Off-Road and TRD Off-Road Premium. Both grades offer distinctive Toyota Racing Development branding to stand out. The 4Runner’s body-on-frame architecture has enabled the SUV to traverse challenging terrain all while comfortably transporting people and all of their gear.
The exterior of the TRD Off-Road grades will feature black painted wheels and a unique TRD Off-Road badge. Inside, the center console has a carbon fiber look and the floor mats feature the TRD Off-Road badging. The TRD Off-Road Premium 4Runner also adds TRD red lettering on the headrests for the driver and front passenger.
The new grades will include Multi-Terrain Select system which allows drivers to use a dial to select the mode that matches the prevailing terrain and conditions, adjusting the wheel slip accordingly. Toyota’s Crawl Control (CRAWL) feature helps maintain a constant speed, enhancing vehicle control when driving up and over obstacles in challenging off-road situations. With the transfer case shifted into low range, CRAWL regulates both engine speed and braking force to propel the vehicle forward or in reverse at one of the five driver-selectable low-speed settings. The driver can then focus on steering over obstacles without having to also modulate the throttle or brake pedal.
