There’s a lot of vehicles out that that claim to be off-road ready. A lot of times this amounts to the vehicle having an AWD system and a traction control selector that says “Off-Road” on it. Luckily, Toyota doesn’t think that way.
The TRD department of Toyota—also known as Toyota Racing Division—has made four off-road performance variants of four Toyota vehicles: the Tacoma, the Tundra, the Sequoia, and the 4Runner. Today, we’ll be looking at the 2020 4Runner TRD.
Toyota packed a bunch of sweet parts into the 2020 4Runner TRD to make it a true off-road monster. The 4Runner TRD Pro has overzise TRD-tuned FOX high-performance shock with rear remote reservoirs. That suspension gives the 4Runner an impressive 9.6-inch ground clearance. In the case that you do bottom it out, it has a durable ¼-inch aluminum skid plate to keep everything protected. It also comes with Nitto Terra Grappler all-terrain tires help the 4x4 drivetrain devour terrain that doesn’t want to be driven through. It also has a locking rear differential and Crawl Control to keep you moving forward, even on stubborn terrain. And don’t forget the 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 that puts out 278 lb-ft of torque.
The 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD comes in three different trims, each with varies levels of tech and features. Don’t worry, though: no matter which you picked, you’ll have the keys to one of the most capable off-road vehicles on the market.
