Consumers seeking an SUV typically want three things: space, safety, and some off-road fun. The 2016 Toyota 4Runner offers all of these qualities, which is why so many consumers find it such an appealing choice.
|Engine Size:||4.0 L|
|Drivetrain:||Four Wheel and Rear Wheel|
For consumers seeking the best in off-road fun, there's no better choice than the 2016 4Runner. Offering just one engine – a 4.0-liter V6 – the 4Runner is paired to a five-speed automatic transmission, producing 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. Depending on model, the 4Runner can be equipped with either rear-wheel drive or 4WD. Those models with 4WD offer the most excitement off the beaten path, featuring low-range gearing, locking center differential, and selectable terrain modes to conquer even the toughest of trails.
The Trail and TRD Pro models are by far the most off-road capable with content like off-road tires, Bilstein shocks, and adaptive roll-reducing dampers. Offered exclusively for the Trail model is the optional Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS). Used to automatically disconnect the SUV's stabilizer bars in low-speed, off-road situations, this system helps improve suspension articulation over deep ruts and boulders.
Other gear found on these models and others that proves skilled in off-road adventures, include: mud guards, skid plates, hill-start assist, and hill-descent control.
If you plan to tow, the 2016 4Runner is more than adequate, managing up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.
The 2016 Toyota 4Runner may provide solid engine power and off-road thrills, but it also stands out with a user-friendly and cargo-friendly interior. When you step inside the 4Runner, you'll find all instrumentation and controls to be well laid out and easy to use, even for the least tech savvy individuals. All models show off a touchscreen audio interface that sits high on the center stack, and depending on which model of the 4Runner is chosen, the touchscreen provides plenty of functionality with Toyota's Entune suite of smartphone-enabled services and apps.
The 2016 4Runner stands out in many areas, but one of the most impressive is its cargo space. While space is a top quality in all SUVs, only one can prove to be the best. Behind second-row seats in the 4Runner, consumers will enjoy 47 cubic feet of cargo space, and with all rear seats folded down, this measurement jumps to an impressive 89.7 cubic feet – two measurements that easily top those of its rivals.
