Unleashing Adventure: Exploring Toyota 4Runner's Off-Roading Capabilities

By: Quesnel Toyota   |   31 May 2023

Whether you’re planning upcoming road trips throughout the Cariboo region this summer or enjoy frequent expeditions off the beaten path all year round, few SUVs can conquer the road less travelled, much like the Toyota 4Runner. And with the addition of the 4Runner TRD Sport model, Toyota takes its iconic history of off-road mastery to give Quesnel drivers a little taste of the thrill. Let’s explore the Toyota 4Runner and all its impressive off-roading capabilities.

Off-Road Ready

While the cargo space, interior comforts, and cutting tech and safety features are enticing enough, the 4Runner’s off-roading potential is really where it separates from the vast majority of competitors in its segment. Every model has high ground clearance, meaning you'll be able to traverse rocks, cracks, and bumpy trails that other SUVs can't without damaging the underbody. Equipped with a special suspension called KDSS (Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System), 4Runner automatically adjusts to allow extra wheel articulation when off-roading on challenging terrain. Another helpful off-road feature that comes standard on 4WD models is called A-Trac, which sends power to the wheels that have the most traction and hits the brakes on those that don't. When it's activated, you can apply a steady throttle, and this feature can help to pull you out of surprisingly difficult situations.


4Runner TRD Pro

Inspired by Toyota Racing Development’s 35-year history of success in extreme off-road racing, 4Runner TRD Pro is engineered to take on the most challenging terrain that Canada can put in your way. To stay fully immersed in your off-roading adventure, the 4Runner TRD Sport elevates your ride comfort with an X-REAS sports suspension system to improve handling, especially in the curves. The 5-passenger 4Runner TRD Off Road also features a rugged part-time 4-wheel drive system, locking rear differential, Kinetic Suspension System with coil springs, skid-plates, multi-terrain ABS, and more. And with an extended ground clearance of 9.8”, the 4Runner is taking off-roading to new heights.
