Toyota’s popular full-size SUV will add both TRD Off-Road and TRD Off-Road Premium trims in 2017. Previously, Toyota only offered the TRD trim on the top-of-the-line 4Runner. The new grade levels fall between the current SR5 Premium and Limited trims.
The TRD Off-Road adds on the Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control systems. Both systems are add-ons on the SR5 trim. The two work together to give the 4Runner added stability to keep its footing and not flip when hitting those rocky roads.
Multi-Terrain provides a dial drivers can use to select the mode of the chassis control to match the traction of different environments from sandy to muddy. Crawl Control works to maintain a constant speed no matter what happens underfoot. It allows the driver to focus on steering. The available Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System increases wheel travel at low speeds.
The TRD models also come with TRD badges on the C-pillars and floor mats. The Off-Road Premium trim adds red TRD stitching on the headrest.
With the addition of the two new trims, the 4Runner will offer six models for 2017. The lineup now follows SR5, SR5 Premium, TRD Off-Road, TRD Off-Road Premium, Limited, and TRD Pro. No changes have been made to the top-of-the-line TRD Pro for 2017. So no worries there.
Look for 2017 pricing closer to their arrival later this year.
