Amazing Off-Road Experiences

The 2019 Toyota 4Runner comes alive once you take it off road. The 17-inch tires, the state of the art suspension system and on-frame body are few of the features that stand out for off-roading. When you buy the premium versions you will additionally get premium quality skid plates, auto headlamps, a sunroof and an awesome sound system by JBL.

Serious off-roaders should consider the TRD Pro which features FOX shocks with TRD-tuned springs, matte black 17-inch wheels, all-terrain tires, a special front skid plate, a black roof rack and special TRD styling. It also offers high-performance LED fog lights, a sunroof and a 15-speaker JBL sound system.

Ultimate Comfort

In terms of comfort, you might get a mixed experience. As highlighted earlier as well, the 4Runner is primarily built for off-roading and you won’t be able to get to see the performance of the vehicle until you take it to rough terrain. In terms of the cargo space, the vehicle allows you to store a volume of 46.3 cubic feet when the seats are up and 90 cubic feet of volume when the back seats are folded down.

In terms of driving experience, the V6 engine along with the automatic transmission system packs enough power to handle any terrain easily. Handling and steering of the vehicle are also very decent and the seamless throttle delivery and smooth shifting make the vehicle feel more of a premium crossover than a truck.
