A heritage of toughness
For over 35 years, 4Runner has delivered a ride that’s smooth in the city — but its true home is the off-road1. 4Runner is built on a suspension made up of an independent double-wishbone in the front, and a 4-link and coil-spring setup in the rear.
Locking rear differential
To help you negotiate uncertain terrain, 4Runner’s available electronically controlled locking rear differential distributes engine power evenly to both rear wheels, so they move at the same speed, even if one is off the ground.
When the trail gets challenging, 4Runner’s available Crawl Control (CRAWL)2 is here to help you conquer your off-road adventure. This advanced system automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings.
Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS)
The available Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) helps 4Runner make molehills out of mountains. When taking on extreme off-road terrain, this system is designed to automatically decouple 4Runner's sway bars as needed.
Approach with confidence
4Runner is built to handle almost any terrain1. All 4Runners get reinforced skid plates to help protect the engine, front suspension and fuel tank. And with 9.6 inches of ground clearance, an approach angle of 33 degrees and a departure angle of 26 degrees.
Available Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) allows you to choose from four terrain modes that will regulate wheelspin by adjusting the engine throttle setting and braking pressure to help provide you with optimized traction in various off-road situations1.

LED headlights and fog lights
Whether you’re beating the crowd to surf before dawn or driving home from the trail after dusk, 4Runner’s new standard LED headlights shine bright for greater visibility in the dark.
With 4Runner’s ability to tow up to 5000 lbs.3, venturing into some of nature’s toughest ranges doesn’t mean you have to leave everything behind. 4Runner adheres to SAE, the standard for tow ratings set by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
120V AC power outlet
A 120V AC power outlet is conveniently located in the cargo area so you can power your gear—like your phone or an air compressor—when you’re off the grid4.
