Pavement? Who needs pavement? The 2017 Toyota 4Runner screams, “Bring on the trail!” Offered for the first time in Canada, the 4Runner TRD Pro headlines the 4Runner line-up for the 2017 model year, which also includes a new TRD OFF-ROAD package.
The 2017 4Runner is already an impressive machine – and the engineers at Toyota Racing Development (TRD) added a long list of ground-pounding features to the TRD Pro model.
The 2017 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro features several unique TRD Pro performance upgrades, including TRD-tuned front springs, TRD Bilstein high-performance shocks with rear remote reservoirs, and 31.5” Nitto Terra Grappler all-terrain tires on 17” matte black aluminum wheels with TRD centre caps.
Unique TRD Pro style enhancements include a heritage Toyota grille, TRD shift knob, TRO Pro-badged floor mats, black TRD Pro badging on the C-pillar and tailgate, TRD-stamped aluminum front skid plate, black accents on the front and rear bumpers, and more.
These are in addition to impressive off-roading performance and style features also found on the 2017 Toyota 4Runner TRD OFF-ROAD edition, including: 4-wheel crawl control, lever-type 4WD selector, four-setting multi-terrain select system (to tailor wheel slip to specific off-road conditions), Toyota’s Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, multi-terrain ABS, high-visibility Optitron instrumentation, black seats with red stitching, a hood scoop, TRD logo on the front headrests, and black end caps for the roof rails.
Like all 2017 Toyota 4Runner models, the 4Runner TRD Pro was built around a powerful and proven 4.0L V6 engine that generates up to 270 horsepower and up to 278 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to a five-speed automatic super electronically controlled transmission with lock-up torque converter and transmission cooler. 4Runner has a 2,268 kg (5,000 lb) towing rating and is standard equipped with a hitch plus 4-pin, and 7-pin trailer wiring harnesses.
On-demand four-wheel-drive (full-time on the 4Runner Limited edition), a suspension designed for drivability, robustness and ride comfort, and advanced control technologies such as hill start assist control and downhill assist control make 4Runner the go-anywhere mid-size SUV that’s also surprisingly well-mannered on the road, while front and rear ventilated disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power.
